My Favorite Things December Release Countdown, Day Five


Hey, everyone, it’s Day Five of MFT’s December Release Countdown! Release is on December 5th at 9pm Eastern. Be sure to check by the MFT Blog for all the release details. Today we’re previewing Town Bear Stamp Set, Town Bear Die-namics, Open Road Die-namics, Our Town Die-namics, Stitched Tag-Corner Square STAX Die-namics, and Stitched Tag-Corner Rectangle STAX Die-namics.

How adorable is this little bear in his car, right? And that road? Awesome!! Perfect for a slider—which is included in the road die set. I did a watercolor wash for the sky and grass and cut the grass with Grassy Hills Die-namics.


The images were stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink on No-Line Coloring card stock, cut with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment at the bottom and used foam tape for dimension. Here’s a quick video of the slider action:


My second card is very different, highlighting the new Our Town Die-namics. Love it!


I started by cutting Our Town Die-namics three times from Sweet Tooth card stock. Then, on an After Midnight card stock base, I hand drew the large star with a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen, heat embossed the sentiment from Hand-Lettered Christmas stamps set, and splattered some watered down white craft paint for the starry sky.


The only thing left to do was to adhere the Our Town die cuts in a staggered pattern, the bottom one adhered directly to the card base and the other two popped up on foam tape.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Four of MFT’s December Release Countdown!
