MFT October Release Countdown, Day Three + a Video

countdownday3_2014oct12 (1)

Hi, everyone, and welcome to Day Three of MFT’s October Release Countdown! It’s almost here! Release is on October 14th at 10pm—get all the details at the MFT Blog! Today we’re previewing PI Christmas Banner Die-namics, PI Christmas Banner, and Positive Sign Stencil.

This is such a darling image, don’t you think?! I cut PI Christmas Banner Die-namics from X-Press It Blending Card, stamped it with Black Licorice hybrid ink, and colored it with Copic markers—I love how her dress looks like velvet--except the banner in her hands, that was filled that in with a gold pen.

Then, on a Wild Cherry card stock base, I stamped Fine Chevron Background with Wild Cherry ink and popped up Snowflake Fusion Cover-Up, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and backed with another piece of Sweet Tooth card stock. I popped it up off-center so there’s a border of the stamped base showing. Then I popped up the PI image on the base with some gold twine sandwiched in between. The sentiment was stamped on a strip of Sweet Tooth card stock with Black Licorice ink and popped it up on foam as well. To finish off, I added some glittery gold enamel dots.

Here are the Copic markers I used on this image:

Another sentiment from the set was stamped on the inside.

My second card revisits a couple of products that I can’t get enough of: Snowfall Background and Pierced Snowflakes Die-namics.

I have a video showing how easy it is to heat emboss this background and how the card was constructed. To view the video, click on the button below, or you can watch it HERE on YouTube.



I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then stamped Snowfall Background on a piece of Nightshift Blue card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then I stamped the sentiment, from Merry Messages, and heat embossed in the same manner. I popped that up on the base on foam and added three strips of silver glitter card stock and the Pierced Snowflakes Die-namics, all popped up on foam.

I finished the sentiment on the inside, stamped with Nightshift Blue ink and using clear gems for the ellipses.
