MFT Stamps November Release Countdown; Simply Snowflakes



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, November 1 at 9 pm Central.

Today I am using some of the most gorgeous snowflake products I have seen in a long time. I am beyond thrilled to have these in my collection, as they will never, ever leave my stash! This card was so much fun to create with all its layers, so let me share which products I used layer by layer.

On my Sweet Tooth card stock base, I started by stamping and heat embossing in gold, this beautiful sentiment from Snowfall of Blessings. This stamp set was part of a previously released kit.

Surrounding the sentiment and then covering the rest of the background is a dot image from Simply Snowflakes. I stamped with Delicata Gold ink to add a softer, more subtle look.

To layer over the top, I tore a piece of vellum, leaving the sentiment exposed at the bottom. Then I stamped the stunning snowflakes from Simply Snowflakes. Heat embossing in gold added another level of dimension. Could those snowflakes be any prettier?! And, these images were also part of a previously released kit.

Adhesive tip: with a large piece of vellum to adhere to my card base, I knew it would be an issue. I solved that by using adhesive behind the heat embossed snowflakes. The images "cover up" the adhesive.

Die-namics Stylish Snowflakes is something I was hoping to see, for a long time! This set of dies cuts out the most intricate snowflakes! I placed two of them around the sentiment for even more drama.

Visit the MFT Stamps blog for all the information you will need about the upcoming release. That includes product images, product videos, links to the design team projects, and more! Plus, there always seems to be a chance to win!

Beautiful card. Any tips on how you get these dies to cut? Mine won't cut all the way through!

Hi Jana!
When I die cut small and intricate images like these snowflakes, I put waxed paper, or die release paper inside the die first, then the cardstock or whatever paper I am cutting. The waxed paper, or die cut release paper allows the paper to come out easily.
If the image is not coming out completely, after passing the die and paper through your machine, keeping everything in the die, turn it 45 degrees and cut it again. That will cut the paper fibers from another direction.
I hope those tips help. If not, let me know!
Thanks for the comment and have a super day!!
