MFT October Release Rewind

 releaserewind1_2013oct14

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 the two recently released
Pure Innocence sets for my cards today. My first card is using PI – Trim the Branches Snowman. I always love it when one of these sweet snowmen makes an appearance, don’t you? I started with a Sno Cone card stock base and went from there. I found this card stock at Hobby Lobby that looks like it’s covered with mica flakes and is perfect for snow! So, I cut out a couple of pieces using Snow Drifts Die-namics and decided where I wanted to position them, then I stamped the snowman image on the Sno Cone card stock base. Next I stamped the snowman again on my fave, Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him with Copic markers. I then cut the snowman and the ornaments out and paper pieced them on the Sno Cone card stock base. I stamped the sentiment, from MPD Starry Christmas, with Steel Gray ink and added my snow drifts. The front layer is popped up on foam tape for dimension.

The inside has a sentiment from PI – Trim the Branches Snowman, also stamped with Steel Gray ink. So sweet!

My second card is using PI – Happy Christmas. I stamped the image on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the little sweetie with Copic markers.

Then I matted it with Black Licorice card stock and popped it up on foam on a Sno Cone card stock base. I stamped the sentiment, from the set, on Black Licorice card stock with Sweet Tooth pigment ink and heat embossed it in two pieces. I popped the sentiment up on foam and finished the card off with some enamel dots.

The inside has another sentiment from the set, stamped with Black Licorice ink.

  2. Such pretty snow! I used your second car on this post, Happy Holidays, as inspiration for my project today that I entered in to the latest Lawn Fawn challenge. Thanks! http://www.valbydesign.com/happy-holidays-tag-lawn-fawn/
