newproducttour1_2013nov12

Hi, everyone! MFT’s November release is live and available for you to shop right now in the MFT Boutique, and I’ve got some cards using Inspired by Holiday Botanicals to show you. Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for more inspiration from the MFT Design Team.

This holiday season, the gifts are for YOU. Visit each of the MFT  Designers' November Product Launch posts and leave a comment by the end of the day on Thursday, November 14 for your chance to WIN one of 20, $10 Gift Vouchers (that's $200 in prizes - NICE!). The winners will be chosen at random and the prizes will be sent out on November 15. One prize will be given away from each of the designers' blogs, as well as one from the MFT Blog. Ready? Set. Comment!

My first card uses a gorgeous wreath from the set. I stamped it on Primitive White card stock with memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers. I popped it up on a Jellybean Green card stock base and stamped the sentiment on a strip of Kraft card stock with the new Chocolate Brown ink and popped that up as well.

Here’s a close up of the sentiment in the warm Chocolate Brown ink.

For the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Christmas in Wild Cherry ink.

For my second card, I stamped the potted poinsettia on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored it with Copic markers, and fussy cut it out.

I created some patterned paper by stamping Sweet Tooth card stock with the new Striped Backgrounds stamp set and Bubblegum ink. I matted that with Black Licorice card stock and then Gumdrop Green card stock before popping it up on foam. I stamped the sentiment on more Sweet Tooth card stock with Black Licorice ink and popped that up on foam, as well.

Here’s a close up of the poinsettia and the background:

And the inside has another sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Christmas.

My last card uses the single poinsettia bloom as the focal point. I stamped it on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. I actually stamped it five times and cut out layers after they were colored, then adhered the layers. I added some bits of foam under the petals to add more dimension. I stamped another diagonal sheet of Striped Backgrounds with Black Licorice ink and slipped a strip of it under the image layer, then stamped the sentiment below it with Black Licorice ink.

Here’s a close up of the poinsettia, showing the dimension I was able to create with the layers.

The inside of this card also has a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Christmas.
