Festive Flamingos–MFT October Card Kit, Countdown Day Two


Hello and welcome to Day Two of MFT’s October Card Kit Countdown. In addition to the card kit, we’re releasing a stamp set and Die-namics from a new designer that you might already be familiar with: Stacey Yacula. Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for all the details.

OK, I am in LOVE with this stamp set!! I adore the retro look and feel of the images! They are just too cute for words! I’m also using the Mid-Month Free with $60 die: Happy Christmas Die-namics. I chose to use it as a shaker element and I love how this turned out.

First, I sponged some Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink for the background and sprinkled it with some clear water. After it dried I cut it with Happy Christmas Die-namics and created my shaker element with Heat Resistant Acetate, foam tape, and Sparkling Clear Snowflake Sequins and Silver Shimmer Seed Beads for the filler., then popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base.


I added Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics with the sentiment stamped on the bottom and stamped the images from Sweet Holiday Penguins, along with the trees from Cool Christmas Stamp Set & Die-namics, on No Line Coloring Card Stock, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them with Copic markers. I added some white putty paint to the Santa hats, popped them up on foam in the scene, and was done!

Thanks so very much for stopping by today! See you back tomorrow for the release of Festive Flamingos Card Kit!
