Hi, everyone, thanks for joining me today for Day Two of MFT’s November Release Countdown! It won’t be long now! Release is on November 3rd at 10pm—be sure to check out the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing LLD Hug in a Mug, LLD Hot Cocoa Cups Die-namics, Bold Diagonal Stripes Background, Basic Stitch Lines Die-namics, Stitched Star STAX Die-namics, and Stitched Cover-Up Companion Horizontal Die-namics.
I have a card and a couple of home décor projects for you today, along with a short video. First up, the card. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then, on a piece of Ranger watercolor paper, I did a watercolor wash with Daffodil dye ink, Tangy Orange dye ink, and the new Chili Powder dye ink. Chili Powder is fast becoming a favorite of mine. Then I splattered some clean water and stamped the sentiment, from Hand Lettered Holiday, with Versamark and heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder. I must say, this is the first time I’ve used the gold embossing powder that MFT carries and it.is.da.BOMB!!! Total smooth coverage, I’m sayin’!
Then I cut some Stitched Star STAX Die-namics from gold foil card stock, arranged and popped them up on foam mounting tape. I finished off with some gold Pretty Pink Posh sequins.
Next a couple of Christmas décor items.
I made a little video to show you how I achieved the dimensional look with Stitched Star STAX Die-namics and you can view it HERE in HD or click on the button below.
Once I got my ornament base made, I added some clear chunky glitter, punched a small hole at the end of a point, and tied on some silver baker’s twine for a hanger.
I also made a banner with a smaller die, using the same technique to create dimension. For this, I added some Warm Diamond Microfine Glitter and strung the stars on the same silver baker’s twine. Here’s a close up of how I did that, using hot glue.
And here’s the finished banner. I used nine stars and it’s about four feet long.
This photo shows the dimension you get.
And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for the last day of MFT’s November Release Countdown!
