Deck the Howls–MFT and Friends, October Edition


Today our team is taking a fresh look at our most recent release with inspiring ideas and innovative takes on the complete collection. We love the opportunity to look at our products with fresh eyes, envisioning entirely new ways to showcase the possibilities they present. We can’t wait to share our ideas with you!

I decided to create a cozy little scene using Deck the Howls Stamp Set and Die-namics and Filled with Joy Die-namics from the October release and some previously released products—I love how MFT products work so well together!

So, first I created my background which serves as the wall in my imaginary house. I covered a Sweet Tooth card stock base with Fresh Squeezed Chevrons patterned paper for the “wallpaper”, added Kraft card stock for the “carpet”, and more Sweet Tooth for the baseboard. Next I added Fireplace Die-namics (see card stock colors below) and decorated it and the wall with greenery, repurposing the snowflake from Filled with Joy Die-namics. To see how I did this, you can check out my blog post


Once I had that all done I stamped the images from Deck the Howls Stamp Set with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No-Line Coloring Card Stock, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and popped them up on foam tape. The sentiment was heat embossed and also adhered with foam tape.

And that’s all I have for you today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by the
MFT Blog to see who else has some creations to share with you today.

See you soon!

  1. Gorgeous card Barbara!
    Is there an advantage in using no-line colouring paper over neenah paper when you are copic colouring? I have only heard of it recently, and am wondering if there is a difference.


Thank you for your kind comments--they make my day and I appreciate every one!
