MFT Release Countdown - You Mean The World To Me

Welcome to Day 2 of Release Countdown with My Favorite Things! Only one more day until all of the new MFT products will be released for purchase in the MFT Boutique! Be sure to check in at the MFT Blog daily for complete details and full reveals of products.

I'm featuring this month's Free with $60: Centerpieces You Mean The World To Me Die-namics in combination with another of today's features, Die-namics Lightbulb.

I literally combined the Lightbulb and World Die-namics by first die-cutting the bulb and then embossing it with the globe portion of the centerpiece. To add a bit of color, I water colored my light bulb globe using Blu Raspberry and Sour Apple ink with a simple watercolor brush and water.

Just below the bulb is the Centerpieces World sentiment, which I used as a stencil. After adding a drop of Sour Apple reinker to a bit of embossing paste to give it a pale green color, I swiped the embossing paste over my stencil with a credit card, removed the stencil and let it dry overnight.

I used the same stenciling technic on the inside of the card, but this time I used the globe as my stencil. I'm thrilled to say that I'm hooked on this embossing paste/stencil technic that I've been skeered to try for months!

A simple Blu Raspberry heart from Blueprints 15 was all I needed to finish off the inside.

Thank you for sticking with me this week. Just one more Release Countdown day and we've made it! Continue checking in at the MFT Blog for up to date info and opportunities to win and I'll see you back here tomorrow.
