MFT November Release Countdown Kickoff—Five Days Until Release


Hello and welcome to the first Day of MFT’s November Release Countdown! Release is in five days, on November 5th at 10am Eastern so make a note. Today we’re previewing Snow Buddies Stamp Set, Snow Buddies Die-namics, Polar Penguins Stamp Set, Polar Penguins Die-namics, Party Lights Stamp Set (this also has a die included with it), Snowy Hillside Die-namics, Winter Stencil Strips Stencil, and Mistletoe Cover-Up Die-namics. That’s a lot of cuteness right there and we can’t wait to show it to you! Be sure to stop by the
MFT Blog to see some more inspiration from the Design Team.

I might have squealed when I opened my Design Team package and saw Party Lights Stamp Set and the accompanying Die-namics. I’ve been wanting Christmas lights for the longest time and I finally have them! I love the size! Not too big and not too small—they’re juuuuuuust right! For my first card today I stamped a pile of them at the top of a Sweet Tooth card stock panel. The cord was stamped with Jellybean Green dye ink and the lights stamped using Red Hot, Orange Zest, Pineapple, Cornflower, and Field Day.

Once the lights were stamped I added highlights with a white gel pen, adhered the panel to a Sweet Tooth card stock base, and stamped the sentiment from Hand Lettered Holiday to finish off. I love this card!

My second card is a little busier—this little penguin can’t wait for Christmas!

I started by sponging the background on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper: Tumbled Glass and Faded Denim for the sky and Broken China and Mermaid Lagoon for the sea, then spattered with some clear water. While that was drying I spread sparkling snow embossing paste through Winter Stencil Strips Stencil at the bottom of a Sweet Tooth card stock base. After it dried I replaced the stencil and inked it with Wild Cherry Dye Ink. I adhered the background panel directly and added Snow Drifts Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock.

The images were stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No Line Coloring card stock, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and popped up in the scene. How adorable are these images???

And that’s it for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for the second day of
MFT November Release Countdown!
