Have a Cool Christmas–MFT October Release Countdown, Day Two


Hello everyone and welcome to Day Two of MFT’s October Release Countdown! It’s getting closer!!! Release is on October 9 at 10am so set your clocks—you won’t want to miss all this Christmas goodness. And don’t forget to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing Cool Christmas Stamp Set, Cool Christmas Die-namics, Happy Llamadays Stamp Set, Happy Llamadays Die-namics, Snow Flurry Stencil, Fa la la Die-namics, and Simply Hello Die-namics - Previous Free with $60.


I love this old station wagon so much!!! And road trip, amirite??? For my card I started by sponging the sky with Berrylicious dye ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper (seriously, peeps, if you’re not using this for sponging you’re doing it wrong! It’s THAT good!) and leaving the bottom white for snow. I stamped the sentiment, added some Mountain High Die-namics, cut from Cement Gray card stock and Open Road Die-namics cut from Black Licorice card stock with Sweet Tooth for the lines. Puffy Clouds Die-namics finished the sky.


The images were stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and added to the scene. Dimension was achieved with foam tape.

And there you have it for Day Two for
MFT’s October Release Countdown! I just love that car full of snow people!! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see you back tomorrow for Day One—and the last---Release Countdown day.
