Hello, and welcome to Day Four of MFT’s October Release Countdown!!! So, how’d you like yesterday’s previews? Pretty dang awesome, right? Well, hold on to your hats, ‘cause we’ve got plenty more to show you. Today we’re previewing BB Santa's Elves, BB Santa's Elves Die-namics, Candy Stripes Background Builder, Santa Suit Die-namics, Fireplace Die-namics, Hand Lettered Holiday, and Stitched Arch STAX Die-namics. As always, get all the details at the MFT Blog and remember that release is on October 6th at 10pm.
I have a lot to show you today so let’s get to it! First up I’ve created a little scene using several of the products being previewed today. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base and added some paper from the new Calm & Cozy Chevron Paper Pack—love me some gray wallpaper :) Then I built Fireplace Die-namics with sweet Tooth card stock, the fire box is the new Gravel Gray card stock and look at that fire! Right down to the wrought iron grate! I used the new Sunshine card stock as one of the colors in the fire, the new Poppy card stock for the stockings, and Elf Green card stock and Green-Eyed Monster card stock for the greenery on the mantle. The holly sprigs are from BB Santa’s Elves and was also fussy cut out. My little elf is from BB Santa’s Elves and was stamped on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb with Black Licorice hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers and fussy cut out before being popped up on foam. The sentiment is from Gift Tag Greetings and is framed with the new Stitched Arch STAX Die-namics.
Fireplace Die-namics is a classic design and I can see it being used year ‘round, can’t you?
Next up is Santa Suit Die-namics. I might have squealed a bit when I took this out of the design team package. How stinkin’ CUTE is this?!?!
I have two projects using it for you today—the first one is a card. All of the parts you need are in the die set—you choose the papers and go to town!
Speaking of papers, I have a little video showing you how I stamped the Candy Stripe Background Builder on yesterday’s tag and the one hanging off of Santa’s belt below. You can view it HERE in HD or click on the button below.
I actually added some fun flock to my “fur” areas on this project—not sure if you can see that or not, but it adds fun dimension to it.
And I heat embossed the belt card stock with clear embossing powder (two coats) to give it some shine.
The tag is from Tag Builder Blueprints 4 Die-namics. I used Candy Stripes Background Builder, Green-Eyed Monster dye ink and Wild Cherry dye ink to make the striped paper and Green-Eyed Monster card stock for the “eyelet”. Another holly sprig from BB Santa’s Elves embellish it, this one along with the coordinating die from BB Santa’s Elves Die-namics.
While I was making the card above, it occurred to me that it would make a great front to a gift bag :) So, I gave it a try and love how it turned out!
This time I left the white card stock as is and used black mirror card stock for the belt. Another tag from Tag Builder Blueprints 4 Die-namics…
…with another sentiment on the back. This came together really quickly—a great way to make a custom gift bag.
And that’s it for Day Four of MFT’s October Release Countdown! I had so much FUN creating these projects!! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you back tomorrow when I’ll have more to show you.
