Countdown Kickoff—Just Five Days Until MFT’s January Release!

Hello and welcome to the first day of MFT’s January Release Countdown! We’re starting off the year with lots of fun products for you so let’s get to it. Today we’re previewing BB Let's Stick Together Stamp Set, BB Let's Stick Together Die-namics, Smitten with You Stamp Set, Impressive String of Hearts Die-namics, Pizza My Heart Stamp Set, and Pizza Maker Die-namics. Release is in five days, on January 7th so mark your calendars.

Birdie Brown’s done it again with this adorable set! I love the cactus and their little pots. So to start I spread molding paste through English Brick Wall Stencil on Sweet Tooth card stock and after it dried I replaced the stencil and sponged on some Wild Honey Distress Ink and for the “concrete” I sponged Pumice Stone Distress Ink. Next I stamped the images with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No Line Coloring card stock, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them with Copic markers.

The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment strips and popped up on foam. To finish off the images were adhered in place on the card front with foam tape for dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Two of MFT’s January Release Countdown!
