Hello and welcome to Day Three of MFT’s November Release Countdown! Mark your calendars—release is on November 1st at 10pm EDT. And don’t forget to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details! Today we’re previewing PI Ice Skater Stamp Set, PI Ice Skater Die-namics, Deepest Sympathy Stamp Set, Roses in Bloom Die-namics - Free with $60, and Sending Hugs Die-namics - Previous Free with $60.
I have a couple of cards for you today starting with the adorable PI Ice Skater stamp set and PI Ice Skater Die-namics. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then, on some Stone Gray card stock, I stamped Whimsical Waves Background with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder and adhered it to the bottom of the card base. I think that totally looks like skate marks in the ice—love how it turned out! Next I added some Ranger Watercolor paper on which I applied a watercolor wash using Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush to the top for the sky.
Then I cut Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock, stamped the sentiments, and popped them up on foam mounting tape for the snow bank, a Radiant Sun Die-namics cut from Sunshine card stock, and some Puffy Clouds Die-namics to complete the backdrop. I stamped the image with Black Licorice hybrid ink on X-Press It Blending Card, cut it out with the coordinating dies, colored it with Copic markers, and popped her up on foam. Isn’t she the SWEETEST?!?!
My next card uses the new Deepest Sympathy set along with the also new Solid Birch Trees Die-namics.
My card base was created from Sweet Tooth card stock and I added a background created by applying Peerless Watercolors to Ranger Watercolor Paper with a waterbrush. Before I adhered it to the card base I stamped the sentiment from Deepest Sympathy with Gravel Gray hybrid ink. I added Birch Trees Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock on top of Solid Birch Trees Die-namics cut from Gravel Gray card stock (I love having these solid trees to add realism!!) and added Stitched Valley Die-namics and Puffy Clouds Die-namics cut from more Sweet Tooth card stock. To finish off, I added the sweet cardinal from PI Season’s Tweetings, colored with Copic markers and it was done.
And that’s it for today’s Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you back tomorrow for Day Two!
