MFT Stamps October Release Countdown: Beast Friends



Welcome to the MFT Stamps Release Countdown! For the next few days we will be sharing projects featuring the new stamps, dies, and stencils that will be releasing this month. You will be able to purchase any of the products you see over the next few days on 
Tuesday, October 4 at 9 pm Central.

Beast Friends and the coordinating Die-namics Beast Friends is another home run set from Birdie Brown! This set, with its adorable yeti images and punny sentiments will have you making silly Christmas cards, but also everyday cards for friends who will get a giggle in the mail!

To create a scene for my yeti, I started by applying Periwinkle and Tickled Pink inks to Sweet Tooth card stock with a Mini Ink Blending Tool, changing the foam for each color of ink. To add texture, I spritzed the Snowfall Background stamp with water and then pressed it into the ink. Keeping it in place for 20 or so seconds, I lifted it away to reveal the subtle snowfall image in the ink.

The mountains are a new set of dies called, Die-namics Snow-Capped Mountains. The mountain bases were cut from Grout Grey card stock. The separate mountain tops were cut from card stock that I applied a double-sided adhesive sheet upon. Once die cut, the adhesive backing removes easily, leaving a surface to cover with glitter. I used Warm Diamond Glitter. How fun are those mountain tops?

The card is finished off with a few pine trees and a sweet sentiment from Beast Friends. And then there is that adorable yeti! After stamping him on Sweet Tooth card stock with Hybrid Black Licorice Ink, he was colored with color pencil.

MFT Stamps October Release Countdown Begins!



Welcome to the start of the MFT Stamps Release Countdown! For the next 5 days we will be sharing projects featuring the new stamps, dies, and stencils that will be releasing this month. You will be able to purchase any of the products you see over the next few days on 
Tuesday, October 4th at 9 pm Central.

Let's kick this release off with a card for the holidays! Santa and his reindeer are ready to deliver holiday cheer in Merry Everything and the coordinating Die-namics Merry Everything. The set even includes a sleigh and presents!

To create the background for Santa, I started with a piece of Sno Cone card stock and cut it with the new Die-namics Snowfall Vertical. This die cuts the openings you see here. I decided to back those openings with Silver Sparkle card stock. Because the snow just has to shimmer!

I stamped Santa and his reindeer from Merry Everything on Sweet Tooth card stock and then die cut them out. They are colored with color pencil in a festive red and green palette.

One more project to share with you today, these shaker tags using the new Die-namics Tag Builder Blueprints 6! Not only do these tags make gorgeous tags, but when paired with Shaker Pouches, you have stunning interactive tags perfect for giving giving! The shaker pouches are plastic domes that fit exactly on the tag shapes!! This project is part of the FREE downloadable class that will be available later this week! I will link you up when its live.
