London calling: MFT Stamps September Release Countdown



This is it! The last post until the new stamps, dies, stencils, and more are available from 
MFT Stamps! My next post will signal that it is time to shop! How long is your wish list?

PLEASE NOTE: so many of you email and ask why these products are sold out already. THEY ARE NOT. They have not been made available to the public yet. Our posts for the days leading up to the release are to share with you what WILL be available soon. These products I have been showcasing for the last five days will be available for purchase Tuesday, September 1, at 9 pm CDT. The clickable images that contain links to these specific products in these posts are created ahead of time, so that you may reference those items when shopping. Referencing them today, tomorrow, and even two years from now. 

Today I am featuring a set called, London Mouse and Die-namics London Mouse. Its fabulous! Full of fun details! Second only to my desire to visit Paris is my desire to visit London! Here is hoping I get to put all these wonderful products to good use in a scrapbook someday!

I kept things very simple on this card because I wanted the phone booth, that iconic phone booth, to be the star. Cutting water color paper with Die-namics London Mouse, I then stamped the phone booth image from London Mouse with Hybrid Black Licorice ink. I water colored it with Wild Cherry ink with water added to it.

Behind the phone booth are images from London Mouse stamped in Hybrid Black Licorice ink. After stamping the Sweet Tooth card stock, I trimmed the image down with Die-namics Rectangle STAX Set 1.

The perfectly fitting sentiment is from Label Maker Sentiments. After cutting Sweet Tooth card stock with Die-namics Label Tape, I stamped the sentiment in Black Licorice ink. (I used dye based ink for this because I love the coverage more on a solid image like this.)

Staying with the simple vibe, I created a background on water color paper with my Gansai Tambi water colors. Once dry, I trimmed it down with Die-namics Rectangle STAX Set 1. Then stamped the panel with the ferris wheel image from London Mouse in Hybrid Black Licorice ink.

I die cut several pieces of Sweet Tooth card stock with Die-namics Label Tape, then stamped several words from Label Tape Sentiments in Razzle Berry ink to create this sentiment.

Underneath the stamped and water colored panel, I added a layer of patterned paper from 

A fun way to use this very themed set, without it having to be about London!
