Love You More–MFT January Release Countdown, Day One


Hi, everyone! It’s here! The last day of MFT’s January Release Countdown is here! Release is tonight at 10pm! Be sure to check out all the details at the MFT Blog. Today we’re previewing Cheeky Monkey Stamp Set, Cheeky Monkey Die-namics, Stitched Heart STAX Die-namics, Love You More Stamp Set, Mini Hearts Background, and Sunny Skies Die-namics - Free with $60.

Today’s card is done in the style I’m going to call “Refined Grunge”, LOL! I started with a Stone Gray card stock base, then, on a piece of Ranger watercolor paper, I stamped Mini Hearts Background with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. After that I did a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors and stamped some images from Distressed Patterns with Wild Cherry dye ink and Black Licorice dye ink, then popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape. Next I popped up a Stitched Heart STAX Die-namics cut from Wild Wisteria card stock, added a Stitched Fancy Flourish Die-namics cut from Translucent Vellujm, and another heart cut from Wild Cherry card stock.


The sentiment was stamped on a banner cut from Black Licorice card stock with Blueprints 25 Die-namics and stamped with a sentiment from Love You More and Versamark, then heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, then popped up on foam. To finish off, I added some silver glittery enamel dots.

And that’s it for January Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you tonight for New Product Release at 10pm!
