Hi, everyone! It’s time for this month’s Release Rewind! I love this feature since it gives the designers a great opportunity to use some products we might not have gotten around to using during the release. This almost always happens for me so I’m really excited about this chance to be creative with the amazing new MFT products that are available right HERE, right NOW in the MFT Boutique. To get all the details, be sure to stop by the MFT Blog.
I’m using one of this month’s Pure Innocence sets and the à la modes set for my cards today: PI – Pretty Pumpkin and à la modes Bewitching—both adorable little Halloween cuties!
First up, my PI card. I stamped her on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb paper, colored her with Copic markers and paper pieced her skirt. I stamped the Jack-o-lantern face with Black Licorice ink and started building my scene. I added a Die-namics Sheltering Tree and Leaf Trio tree with some Die-namics Halloween Charms ghosts hanging from the tree by some hemp cord. I added a Die-namics Picket Fence, some Die-namics Fresh Cut Grass, and some Die-namics LJD Primitive Pumpkins Trio Die Only. I stamped the sentiment on a Die-namics Mini Pennant die cut and tied it to the fence with more hemp cord.
For the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the set on a new Die-namics Layered Treat Tag die cut with Black Licorice ink.
For my second card, I stamped à la modes Bewitching, colored her and paper pieced her dress. I matted the image panel with Steel Gray card stock and used a Steel Gray button tied with hemp cord on the bow. I used a Die-namics Harlequin border across the bottom.
The inside got the same treatment as the PI card.
And that’s it! Thanks so much for stopping by!
