Autumn Blessings–Four Days Until MFT’s August Release

Hello and welcome to Day Four of
MFT’s August Release Countdown! Release is in four days, on August 11 at 10am Eastern so make a note. And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing Autumn Blessing Stamp Set, Autumn Blessing Die-namics, Ghostly Greetings Stamp Set, Ghostly Greetings Die-namics, Hey, Ghoul Die-namics, Lots of Leaves Cover-Up Die-namics, and Wonky Dots Stencil

Next to Christmas, this month is always my favorite because it has a lot of Fall and Halloween products which I love! When I saw All the Leaves Cover-Up Die-namics I might have squealed just a bit and couldn’t wait to play with it!

For this card, I cut it from Ranger Watercolor paper and used Peerless Watercolors in Fall hues, avoiding the “frame” all around. Once it was dry I spattered it with clean water, black acrylic ink, and gold acrylic ink then applied the gold ink all around on the “frame”.

While waiting for that to dry, I heat embossed Autumn Blessing Stamp Set on a Black Licorice card stock card base with gold detail embossing powder. When this was done, I adhered the watercolored leaves to the card base with foam tape and finished off with a matching sequin on each leaf.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Three of MFT’s August Release Countdown!
