Hello Stampin' friends! I know you all enjoyed the new MFT Teaser Time format and we have yet another exciting NEW feature for you....Welcome to the April MFT Release Rewind! We would like to take this opportunity to share a few more creative ways to use your NEW Stamps and Die-namics from the April release that are AVAILABLE NOW in the MFT Boutique!

I'm featuring the gorgeous NEW Lisa Johnson Designs Sweet Roses Stamp set and the coordinating NEW Roses and Leaves Die-namics. I also made a little treat box with the adorable NEW Scalloped Treat Box Die-namics and used the NEW Open Simply Scallops Trio Die-namics and last but not least, I teamed up elements from the fabulous NEW Blueprints 2 and the Blueprints 1 Die-namics. My card and treat box are made with the beautiful MFT Replenishments Card Stock in Razzle Berry, Blu Raspberry, Sour Apple and Smooth White.

I decided to get good and inky for the April Release Rewind and tried my hand at the "faux watercolour" technique using the MFT Premium Dye Ink refills in Blu Raspberry, Razzle Berry and Pink Lemonade for my watercoloured roses and used Gumdrop Green and Sour Apple Premium Dye Ink Refills for the watercoloured leaves. 

To "watercolour"  I added some drops of ink from the 3 ink refills to a piece of acrylic and spritzed it with water so they would blend and mix together a little but not so much that it becomes a muddy colour.  I then dipped the large sold rose stamp in the ink mixture and randomly stamped it on the fabulous MFT Smooth White Card Stock. I also stamped and embossed extra flowers and leaves and cut them out with the NEW Roses and Leaves Die-namics. Finally, I took a paintbrush, dipped it in the ink and tapped it to add little ink splatters and splotches to the card front.

Here is the inside of the card...I stamped another sentiment from the NEW Sweet Roses Stamp set with Embossing ink and Embossed it with Zing Opaque White Embossing Powder. I added a few more watercoloured roses and leaves cut with the NEW Roses and Leaves Die-namics

I cut the NEW Scalloped Treat Box from Smooth White Card Stock and added some ink splatters before I assembled it. I then cut the stitched border from the Blueprints 1 Die-namcis and wrapped the box with it and added a few more watercoloured roses and leaves and Embossed the sentiment on the Sour Apple tag cut with the cute tag Die-namics from the NEW Blueprints 2.

For my second card I again used the various elements from Blueprints 1 and 2. I also cut the Smooth White panel with the Rectangle STAX Die-namics and added more ink splatters.  I used my fave Layered Layered Labels Die-namics for the sentiment.
