Countdown Kickoff—Five Days Until MFT’s October Release!

Hello and welcome to Day Five of
MFT’s October Release Countdown! Release is on October 6th at 10am Eastern so make a note! And be sure to check by the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing Holiday Penguins Stamp Set, Holiday Penguins Die-namics, Virtually the Best Stamp Set, Virtually the Best Die-namics, Let's Connect Die-namics, and Four Corners Background Stamp.

I told you all I’d be using the amazing Outside the Box Die-namics a lot after it was released last month and I’m back with it again today :) It is SO much fun and so easy to create a box card!!

I cut Outside the Box from Sno Cone Card stock and used patterned paper from the new Christmas Cheer Paper Pad, splattered with some black acrylic ink.

Once the box was assembled, I stamped images from Holiday Penguins Stamp Set with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them with Copic markers.

The sentiment was stamped on the front panel with Extreme Black ink and I used Outside the Box Snow Drifts for my shelves. The images were added with paper strips—dies for these included in Outside the Box Die-namics.

The background was created with Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, and trees from Warm Hugs and Frosty Greetings Die-namics—you’ll see more of this set later this week.

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