MFT February Release Countdown, Day Two


Hello and welcome to Day Two of MFT’s February Release Countdown! So, whatcha thinkin’ so far? Pretty awesome release, right? We have a few more for you so be sure to check out the MFT Blog for all the details. Remember release is tomorrow night, February 6th, at 9pm Eastern. Today we’re previewing Critter Condolences Stamp Set, Canine Companions Stamp Set, Canine Companions Die-namics, Paw Prints Die-namics, Magical Mandala Background, Magical Mandala Die-namics, Stitched Heart Peek-a-Boo Window - Previous Free with $60, and Heart Shaker Pouches.


I’ve got a couple of cards to show you using today’s products so let’s get to it. If you know me you know I’m a cat person but  I had the most fun creating this card with Canine Companions! To begin, I sponged my background with Sour Apple and Berrylicious dye inks. Then, very lightly with a pencil, I drew my hole in the ground and the dirt pile and went back and colored with Copics. Then I stamped and die cut my doggie and colored him with Copic markers, too.


I popped him up on foam tape along with some Puffy Clouds Die-namics and the sentiment which was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Speech Bubble Die-namics. To finish off, I added some hearts cut from Wild Cherry card stock with Tag Builder Blueprints 6. So much FUN!

My next card is totally different, using Magical Mandala Background.


First, I stamped the image on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Delicata Gold ink and heat embossed with gold fine detail embossing powder. Next I did a watercolor wash with some dramatic jewel shades of blue and green. I popped that up on some Brushed Gold Card stock that was adhered directly to the Sweet Tooth card stock base at a wonky angle to add a little contrast and to ground the card front.


The sentiment is from Anything-but-Basic Birthday Wishes and was also heat embossed with gold on Black Licorice card stock cut with Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and finished off with some matching enamel dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you back tomorrow for Day One of MFT’s February Release Countdown!
