MFT August Release Countdown | Day 1

Hello and welcome to day 1 of the My Favorite Things August release countdown. For the next 5 days, we're counting down to the August release, sharing cards and ideas using the new products. ;)

For my card today I used the new Frightful Friends stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the new Grave Situation stamps and dies to create a spooky and fun Halloween scene.
I stamped and coloured the Halloween characters from the Frightful Friends stamp set and then I diecut them using the coordinating dies. I stamped one of the tombstones from the Grave Situation stamp set, added a sentiment and diecut that as well. I thought the sentiment worked perfectly with the characters! ;)

I created a background for my scene using orange and grey inks and I cut separate pieces for the ground area and inked them up completely with grey ink. I adhered the grey pieces to the bottom of the panel and then adhered the stamped images.

I finished the card by stamping some bats into the sky area with black ink and then I adhered the finished panel to a top-folding Grout Gray card base.

Thanks so much for joining me for day 1 of the August release countdown. All of the new products that we're sharing all week will officially be available in the MFT online store at 10pm EST tonight!

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for more ideas from the creative team and giveaways! ;)
