inside & outside kitten card: MFT Stamps April Release Countdown



Welcome to the MFT Stamps April Release Countdown! For the next few days we will be sharing projects featuring the new stamps, dies, stencils, and colors that will be releasing this month. You will be able to purchase any of the products you see over the next few days on Tuesday, April 5 at 9 pm Central.

Oh, Birdie Brown. Every time. You steal my heart every.single.time! Cool Cat and 
Cool Cat Die-namics are two of the newest sets releasing this month. The set is full of adorable kitten images and other accessories, along with coordinating dies.

When scrolling through Pinterest looking at gumball machines, I kept noticing that people had turned their gumball machines into fish tanks. Gumball machine dies plus fish tanks plus kittens, and well, you see where my imagination and card went! :D

I die cut and assembled two machines from Gumball Machine Die-namics. Using the glass ball die from the set, I cut an opening in my card stock panel and my card base. This allowed the kitten to be seen from the front of the card.

My second gumball machine went on the inside, along with the backside of the kitten. Yes, you see that correctly! Cool Cat has the face of a kitten and its coordinating back side! Look at how perfectly they line up!

The fish image is from Cat-titude. What I loved about the fish images is that the two fish face different directions, allowing me to put them back to back and have each side show through the acetate window.


Visit the MFT Stamps blog for all the information you will need about the upcoming release. That includes product images, product videos, links to the design team projects, and more! Plus, there always seems to be a chance to win!

thanks for stopping by!

What a clever idea to use gumball machine! Initially I thought both the cat and the fist were in the machine, until I saw the next snap of the inside of the card - such a disappointment - I would have picked the cat any day!! :D
