Hark! The Herald Angels Sing–MFT November Release Countdown, Day Two


Hey there and welcome to Day Two of MFT’s November Release Countdown!! It won’t be long now! Release is on November 13th at 10am Eastern so make a note! Today we’re previewing Little Angels Stamp Set, Little Angels Die-namics, Beautiful Blessings Stamp Set, Cross Die-namics, Get Well Soon Circle Frame Die-namics, and Circle Shaker Pouches. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all of today’s details.


This set has a bunch of sentiments, some Christmas in theme and some not so it will become a staple of my stamping arsenal I’m thinking. Plus, they’re adorable!!! I’m still in Christmas mode so that’s where I went with my card. I started by sponging my background with Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Black Soot Distress Inks—the Salty Ocean toned down the purple of Blueprint Sketch and makes for a gorgeous blue, amirite? Then I darkened the edges and upper corners with Black Soot, splattered some watered down Copic Opaque White for stars, and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base.


Next I cut Ranger Watercolor Paper with Our Town Die-namics twice, watercolored the roofs and shaded the buildings then stamped the sentiment before popping them up on foam tape on the card front. Next I stamped the image on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut her out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored her with Copic markers. I added gold and clear Wink of Stella to the star and popped her up on the night sky with foam tape for the finish!

And that’s it for today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day One of MFT’s November Release Countdown!

  1. This card is beautiful; she's just so precious!

  2. Bringing glad tidings to the world... she is so delicate flying across your star filled sky. I love the blue roof tops. Nicely done.

  3. I like how you watercolored the buildings and the white highlights of the angel's hair is an added feature.

  4. Such a sweet card, Barbara! I love your blue sky and that you colored the roof on the houses, clever!

  5. I can almost hear the angel sing- she is beautiful!

  6. Great card, I love the angel heralding Christ's birth over the modern cityscape.
