Nativity Silhouette - October MFT Release!


Hello! It's time for the October MFT Release! The new release is available now for purchase so be sure to head on over to the MFT Online Boutique and shop! And don't forget to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details, more inspiration, and a chance to win a prize!

I do love a good Nativity and this silhouette is gorgeous!! So happy to have it in my Christmas stamping arsenal! I love the size and the pieces included--just perfect!

I knew I wanted to try to light this baby up so I began but sponging the background using Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, & Black Soot Distress Inks, and adding detail with Sunrise Radiating Rays Stencil. The stars were created by spattering some white craft paint with a small art brush and set it aside to dry.

Nativity Silhouette Die-namics was cut from Black Licorice card stock and once the background was dry, I laid out everything until I was happy with the arrangement, at which time I punch the holes that would end up behind the star and the manger. Next I marked the holes on the Sweet Tooth card stock card base and adhered the light kit to line up with the holes and taped it down. "Press" from Interactive Labels stamp set was stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink on the card front over the switch, in a place I thought would be seen but not too distracting to the design, then popped the card front up on two layers of foam tape, testing light placement frequently during this process.

A strip of Black Licorice card stock was added across the bottom with a sentiment from RAM Away In a Manger Stamp Set, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. The rest of the Nativity die cuts were then adhered with foam tape and this is the result! I love how it turned out and hope you do too!

And that's it from me for MFT's October Release! Thanks so much for stopping by--now go shop!
