Sending You Love–MFT January Release Countdown, Day Three


Hi, everyone, welcome to Day Three of MFT’s January Release Countdown!! Today’s preview lineup includes PI I Heart You, Stamp Set, PI I Heart You Die-namics, Sketched Blooms Stamp Set, Circle Scribbles Background, and Stitched Fancy Flourish Die-namics. Release is on January 5th at 10pm and be sure to check by the MFT Blog for all the release details.

Since it’s Day Three, its Pure Innocence day!! PI I Heart You is this month’s offering and I heart her!! My card started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then I stamped up some Kraft card stock with the also new Mini Hearts Background and Versamark. I trimmed it down, popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape, and with a strip of Black Licorice card stock as “piping”, after tying around some hemp baker’s twine. Next I created her background but cutting Ranger Watercolor paper with Wonky Stitched Oval STAX Die-namics, doing a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors, and popping it up as well.


I cut my PI from Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb paper using PI I Heart You Die-namics, stamped it with the coordinating image from PI I Heart You with Black Licorice hybrid ink, and colored her with Copic markers. I love her little denim skirt that I created by soaking a scrap from old jeans in Copic Blending Solution and pressing it down on the skirt to move the color. Once she was done, I popped her up on the oval and added the sentiment. For that, I cut Black Licorice card stock with Blueprints 2 Die-namics, stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. To finish off, I added some hearts, cut from Wild Cherry card stock with the soon-to-be-released Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you back tomorrow as we start the downhill with Day Two of the January Release Countdown!
