MFT Stamps Color Challenge #54

The latest MFT stamps color challenge is up and its perfect timing for your Halloween projects and cards! Its a fun combination!

I started by die cutting Die-namics Chunky Chevron Cover-Up from all four colors of card stock. I popped several pieces from the Sweet Tooth card stock panel out and added the colored pieces in at random. Once I had my layout decided, I adhered the Sweet Tooth card stock panel, and its pieces down, then added the color card stock pieces, but used foam adhesive for added dimension.

The card was finished off with a heat embossed sentiment from Frightful Friends stamp set, a few bats from Die-namics Spooky Sweets, and for sparkle, clear sequins.

MFT Stamps Snowflake Sparkle Kit now available!

The gorgeous new card kit from MFT Stamps is now available! Snowflake Sparkle Card Kit is one of the fullest kits yet! With two stamp sets, two sets of Die-namics, and gorgeous card stocks and papers, you will be ready to make beautiful cards for the holidays and beyond!

I just HAD to stamp these beautiful snowflakes onto a dark card stock and heat emboss them! The images are incredibly detailed and stunning! I first stamped the largest snowflakes with watermark ink, then heat embossed them with detail white embossing powder. Then I stamped the remainder of the images with watermark ink only. So beautiful!

(Side note: this card stock color is not included in the kit. I went outside the box.)

The sentiment is from the second set of stamps included in the kit. Simple, elegant, and lovely. It is stamped in ink coordinating with the background. For a final touch of sparkle, I used a piece of Silver Sparkle card stock underneath. Such gorgeous paper without the mess of actual glitter!

Once again, I continued stamping those gorgeous snowflakes!

I stamped the black snowflakes first, using Hybrid Black Licorice ink. Knowing that I wanted to white heat emboss the other flakes, it made sense to stamp in that order, as the Hybrid ink would stamp over the embossed parts. :D Keep in mind, that you need to heat set the Hybrid ink, and let it dry for a bit before using the embossing powder.

I finished the graphic design off with a red sentiment, once again in that simple and elegant font. A few sequins were added for sparkle. Because everything needs a bit of that! :D

Visit the MFT Stamps blog for all the details, including the kit contents. There is always a wonderful video tutorial, and a video look at the entire kit, along with a link to all the amazing designers that have created projects with this kit! Don't miss out on this exclusive kit, because once its gone, its gone!
