Halfway to the Big Day! Three Days Until MFT's December Release!


Hello and welcome to Day Five of MFT's December Release Countdown! Release is in five days, December 8th, at 10am Eastern so make a note! Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for ALL the details! Today we're previewing Sweet Safari Stamp Set, Sweet Safari Die-namics, Critter Caravan Die-namics, Missing You Every Single Day Stamp Set, Missing You Every Single Day Die-namics, and Got Milk? Die-namics.

Oh, my gosh but I love this little scene! These critters are adorable! As is Critter Caravan Die-namics!! I wanted to create a realistic scene so I sponged a blue sky, added Snow-Capped Mountain Die-namics, stamped the sentiment and finished off with a sun and some clouds for the background.

For the foreground, I used Kraft card stock for the earth, cut with Stitched Snow Drifts, and greenery cut with Grassy Hills from Jellybean Green card stock. Next I stamped the images from Sweet Safari 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.

Critter Caravan Die-namics was cut from Natural card stock and sponged with Kraft dye ink and the colored images arranged "in" it. The whole thing was popped up on foam for the finish!

And there you have it for Day Three of MFT's December Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Two!
