Joy to the World–MFT October Release Countdown, Day One


Hello and welcome to Day One—the last day—of MFT’s October Release Countdown!! Tomorrow is the day! Release is at 10am Eastern tomorrow, October 9, so set your clocks! Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details! Today we’re previewing Filled with Joy Stamp Set - Previous Kit set, Filled with Joy Die-namics - Previous Kit Set, Mini Circle Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics - Previous Kit Free with $60, Circle Trio Shaker Pouches, Holly Jolly Glitter Card Stock, Gold Glitz Glitter Card Stock, and Silver Ritz Glitter Card Stock.


I started by sponging my night sky using After Midnight dye ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper, then added some stars by splattering some Copic Opaque White slightly diluted with water. Then I added Mountain Hight Die-namics from Cement Gray card stock on which I dry brushed more Copic Opaque White for “snow”. I added Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics (the unstitched edge) and trees from Mountain High Die-namics colored with Copic markers and popped up on foam.


Next I cut JOY from Filled with Joy Die-namics from Silver Glitz Glitter card stock (this stuff is gorgeous--it has tiny specks of color built in that catch the light!) and popped it up on foam. The sentiment was heat embossed on Steel Gray card stock cut with Hearts in a Row – Vertical Die-namics.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by—hope to see you back tomorrow for Release!
