Dashing by With a Holiday Hi - MFT October Vault Release, Countdown Day Two


Hello and welcome to Day Two of MFT's October Vault Release! Release is on October 27 at 10am, Eastern. Today we're previewing 
Dashing Deer Stamp Set, Dashing Deer Die-namics, Hand-Lettered Holiday Greetings Stamp Set, Birch Trees Die-namics, Snow-Capped Mountains Die-namics and Snow Drifts Cover-Up Die-namics. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details.

I do not have the words to describe how ecstatic I am to have Birch Trees and Snow-Capped Mountains Die-namics back!! You know creating scenes is my favorite thing to do and these two products are invaluable to me! I am giddy with excitement to have them back in my stamping arsenal!

To begin this card I created my sky background with Mini Cloud Edges and Blue Breeze dye ink, then adhered it directly to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Next I assembled Snow-Capped Mountains, cut from Gravel Gray and Sweet Tooth card stocks and adhered them to the background.

Next I worked on my Birch Trees. Birch Trees-Solid Die-namics will not be coming back but no worries! You can use Birch Trees as is or if you're like me and love some darker care stock peeking out of the openings, I have the solution for you: simply cut some strips of gray card stock a little narrower and adhere them to the back.

I started by cutting Birch Trees Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock... I cut some strips of Cement Gray card stock slightly narrower than the Birch Trees die cuts...

...and then I adhered the strips to the back of the die cuts and then they were ready to use my scene.

After the trees and Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, were in place, I stamped the images from Dashing Deer Stamp Set, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored them with Copic markers, and popped them up in the scene with foam tape. The sentiment was stamped on bottom snow drift before assembly. Foam tape was used for dimension.

And that's it for Day Two of MFT's October Vault Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by today--see you back tomorrow for Day One!
