MFT July Release Countdown – Day 4


Hello friends! Welcome to My Favorite Things July Release Countdown!! Today is Day 4. I am featuring Birdie Brown’s Beary Special Birthday Stamp Set and Die-namics. I am enamored with this bear in the gift box. How cute and creative!!!

Here is my card. I was inspired by Debby Hughes’ amazing watercoloring! I am so happy about how my card turned out :))))


Here is a close up of the balloons and the gift bear.

  1. White heat emboss the Transparent Triangles Background onto a watercolor paper. Watercolor with Windsor & Newton watercolor. When dry, die cut out with Die-namics Blueprints 25
  2. Die cut the balloons with Big Birthday Balloons Die-namics. Watercolor them in the same way. There are reflection markings for the balloons but I didn’t use them because I wanted my balloons to go with the loose watercolor feel
  3. Stamp a bear from the BB – Beary Special Birthday set. Watercolor it and die cut out using the coordinating die-namics
  4. White heat emboss the sentiment on an Orange Fizz card stock. Die cut with Blueprints 30 Die-namics. Also, die cut a piece of vellum using the same die and adhere it behind as a drop shadow
  5. Adhere everything in place with glue and foam tape. Add Wink of Stella glitter to the balloons. Embellish with some PPP Clear Sparkling sequins to finish
