As my title suggests, this is mainly Christmas month at MFT, with a few other amazing things thrown in, such as NEW COLORS OF CARD STOCK AND INK!!! Yes, six new colors are releasing this month, along with two new patterned paper pads, and they. are. all. awesome! Today we’re previewing LJD Trim the Tree, LJD Trim the Tree Die-namics, Gift Tag Greetings, Tag Builder 4 Blueprints Die-namics, Calm & Cozy Chevron Paper Pack, and Farm Fresh Gingham Paper Pack along with the new colors. Check out ALL of the details at the MFT Blog. Release is October 6 at 10pm.

So, now that the basic introductions are made let me show you what I did with a few of today’s products. First up is a card using LJD Trim the Tree and LJD Trim the Tree Die-namics. It’s CAS and I love how it turned out. Would be pretty easy to mass produce, too, I think. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then on a piece of Ranger Watercolor paper, I did a wash with Blu Raspberry dye ink, splattered some Black Licorice dye ink, and stamped the garland image from the set in a curved design—easy to manipulate this image on a stamp block pretty much any way you want it to go. It and the sentiment were stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink. Then I cut out the ornaments from LJD Trim the Tree Die-namics, also from watercolor paper, and “colored” the stamps with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers. I did a light mist with water and stamped—I love the soft look that gives them!!

I popped the ornaments up on foam mounting tape and it was done!!!

Next up is a tag I made with Tag Builder 4 Blueprints Die-namics, Gift Tag Greetings, and the also new Candy Stripes Background--more about that in coming days. I stamped up some paper with it using a new color, Green-Eyed Monster dye ink and Wild Cherry dye ink, cut out my tag, front and back and another layer for the inside because my cutting plate is SO marked up and I wanted a clean looking surface on the inside because I knew I was going to stamp on the back. I made a shaker element with heat resistant acetate for the window, die cuts from Tag Builder 4 Blueprints Die-namics and Pretty Pink Posh beads for inside. The sentiment on the inside is from Gift Tag Greetings, stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink. The little holly sprig is from another new set you’ll be seeing more of soon: BB Santa’s Elves and was colored with Copic markers and popped up on foam.

On the back, I stamped more images from Gift Tag Greetings, including this holly sprig, also stamped with Green-Eyed Monster dye ink and Wild Cherry dye ink, to carry out the holly theme.

And that’s it for today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for more Christmas in October!!
