MFT October Release Countdown, Day One!


Hello and welcome to Day One of MFT’s October Release Countdown! Tonight is the night!! Release is at 9pm Eastern in the MFT Online Boutique. Be sure to check by the MFT Blog for all the release details. Today we’re previewing X's and O's Stamp Set, Square Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics, Tic Tac Toe Die-namics, Square Shaker Pouches, Tic Tac Toe – White, Tic Tac Toe – Black, Mixed Heart Pieces, Huge Love Die-namics - previous kit free with $60, Let It Snowflake Too Die-namics - free with $60, and Christmas Cocktails - free with purchase stamp set! Wow!! What a line up for today!!


I have a couple of cards for you today using a few of these products. First up, a fun take on using Big Love Die-namics. I started by doing a galaxy background on some Ranger Watercolor paper with Peerless Watercolors and added a whole bunch of “stars” by splattering with watered down Copic Opaque White. I stamped the sentiment—actually, two sentiments together—from Written in the Stars with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder, then popped the panel up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base.


Next I cut Big Love Die-namics and the stars from Tag Builder Blueprints 5 and Tag Builder Blueprints 6 from Silver Sparkle card stock and adhered them to the card front—the letters and some stars—up on foam tape.

My second card was super fun to make—I love thinking outside the box!


This card was inspired by a poster I saw—I decided to take it further outside the box by using happy colors. First, I cut Sweet Tooth card stock with A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX and stamped the tic tac toe board from X’s and O’s stamp set with Black Licorice dye ink, then added the x’s and o’s with Purple Rain dye ink—adding the x “out of the box” then stamped the line with Razzle Berry dye ink.


The sentiment was stamped using Well-Connected Alphabet, then popped up on a card base covered with Bundles of Blossoms Brights patterned paper. I finished off with a few sequins to take it even further out of the box, LOL!

And there you have it for Day One of MFT’s October Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you back tonight for New Product Release!
