It’s release night at MFT! Thank you so much for all of your visits and kind comments over the last week. I have enjoyed being their October guest designer so much!
Tonight I have two very similar cards to share with you using Mona’s new set Starry Christmas. It is a fabulous Christmas set with coordinating dies. The sentiments are sized perfectly for card makers and in such a beautiful script. I think for the first time during this release, I went traditional red and green with my projects.
First, I cut two tags from kraft cards stock – one from Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics and a second the coordinating size of the new Pierced Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics. this pairing of dies is one of my *very* favorite things about this release. I sponged the edges of each tag with MFT Whip Cream ink, and then I used the new Fleur-de-lis Stencil and a sponge dauber to accent my tag background. My tree was cut from kraft with the coordinating tree die and then stamped with MFT Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink.
A few itty-bitty banners from Die-namics Blueprints 8 accent the top left corner (see that new Music Backgrounder?). The whole ensemble is paired with some MFT twine and button, pretty Simple Stories paper, a little stitching and a piece of a white doily that I airbrushed with an E43 Copic Marker.
I have started trying to make two cards at a time when I am cutting up patterned paper for a card base. (These pieces were cut with Die-namics Blueprints 6.) I’ve found that I rarely go back to the scraps, and it just makes sense to do double duty when I’m in the zone. 😉 The only thing different about this card from the first is that sweet reindeer image and die in the new MFT Paver Red Premium Dye ink.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the release! and I hope you’ve found a few products and ideas that will make you Christmas card season very merry!
You can find the entire new release HERE. Merry Christmas to you!
I’ll be back tomorrow with more Hope You Can Cling To goodness!
Have a great night!
