Flying by with a Holiday Hi–MFT November Release Countdown, Day One


Hello! Welcome to Day One—the last day—of MFT’s November Release Countdown! Release is tomorrow at 10am, Eastern, so set your clocks! And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing Here Comes Santa Claus Stamp Set, Here Comes Santa Claus Die-namics, Mountain High Die-namics - previous Free with $60, Happy Christmas Die-namics - previous kit Free with $60, and Color Celebration Glitter Card Stock.


It’s just 10 days until Thanksgiving in the US so it really won’t be long until Santa Claus is coming to town! Seems like after Thanksgiving it’s always a fast blur and suddenly it’s Christmas! MFT is all about helping you get a leg up on Christmas cards and Here Comes Santa Claus Stamp Set and Die-namics is here to help! Such cute images I couldn’t decide which one to use first. After a little brain storming I thought it would be cool to use this Santa-in-his-sleigh image flying past a window.


I sponged the night sky and splattered some snow on it, and added Mountain High Die-namics to complete the scene. The image was stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink and colored it with Copic markers. I fussy cut it out to avoid the distraction of the white border on the darker sky then adhered it directly. I then “framed” it with Blueprints 29 which totally acts as a window. I covered a Sweet Tooth card stock base with On-Point Patterns Paper Pack for “wallpaper” adhered the window scene, and popped up the heat embossed sentiment below it to finish.

And that’s it for MFT’s November Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you back tomorrow for New Product Release at 10am.
