My Favorite Things November Release Countdown, Day Three


Hi there!! So what do you think about this release so far? Pretty amazing, right? Today we’re previewing Coffee Break Stamp Set, Coffee Date Stamp Set, Coffee Date Die-namics, Friends in the Forest Stamp Set, Friends in the Forest Die-namics, Linked Chain Circle Frames Die-namics, and Patterned Paper Graphic Grid Pastels. Don’t forget that release is on November 7th at 9pm Eastern. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details!


I love today’s preview products!!! I had so much fun playing working with them! First up is this fun coffee themed card. I love that Moka pot so much!!! To begin, I did a stenciled background using molding paste and then ink. I wanted to include a bunch of these images so I arranged them in Stitched Collage Frame Die-namics, which I first cut from Kraft card stock and popped up on foam.


Then I stamped the images, colored the pot and some highlights on the cups/mugs, and paper pieced the rest of the cups/mugs. I popped them up on foam, added the sentiment, and finished off with some hearts. Love!!

My second card features a super sweet scene using Friends in the Forest Stamp Set and Die-namics.


Could these little critters be any cuter??? I set my scene by starting with Drifts & Hills Stencil, added some Modern Trees Stamp Set, Birch Trees Die-namics, and Snow Drifts Die-namics stamped with the sentiment.


The images were stamped on No-Line Coloring card stock (heat set) with Black Licorice hybrid ink, colored with Copics, and adhered into the scene. Foam mounting tape was used for dimension.

And there you have it for Day Three of
MFT’s November Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you back tomorrow for Day Two!
