MFT RELEASE DAY - OCTOBER 2018

I have a pair of adorable Robins for my release day post!


Tweet Holidays has lots of cheeky little Robins to choose from and numerous seasonal sentiments.

I chose these cute little friends, snuggled up in a scarf - please note the one on the stamp is plain, I added my own pattern when colouring it.

They were stamped with Cement Gray Hybrid ink on Copic suitable card and coloured with Copic markers and then cut out using the matching Tweet Holidays Die-Namics.

COPIC COLOURS:
Robins: YR12, E13, E41, E42, E43, E44, W00, W0, W1, W3, W5, W6, W8
Hat/Scarf: R22, R24, R27, R37, B0000, B000, C1, C2, C3, W2, W4, W5




As for the card base, I cut a piece of Smooth White card using a Stitched Square die.  Then cut a mask using a Stitched Arch Stax and adhered the negative space to the square die cut.

I sponged Tumbled Glass, Milled Lavender and Stormy Sky Distress ink on to the open area.  Once the ink had dried I dry embossed the Stitched Arch Stax on the square die cut for added dimension.  Then it was time to add a snow flurry with a White Gel Pen.

A sentiment from the Tweet Holidays set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Wow Metallic First Frost Embossing Powder.

Both the Robins and the decorated square panel were adhered to a top folding square card base with foam tape.

MFT OCTOBER RELEASE - COUNTDOWN DAY 2

Today I have a group of snowmen that appear to be from Wisconsin.
I may be English but my son Ben loves American sports and he's a huge Green Bay Packers fan - Go Cheeseheads!



I stamped the main image from Cool Christmas on Copic suitable card with MFT Cement Gray Hybrid ink and coloured it with Copics before cutting it out using the matching Die-Namics.

The background scene was created using the Christmas trees from the set along with additional doodling by yours truly, again with Copic markers.  The snow highlights were added later with the aid of a White Gel pen.

COPIC COLOURS:
Car: R22, R24, R27, R37, R39, N4, N6, W2, W4
Snowmen: BG0000, C0, C1, C2, Y12
Clothing: YR23, YR24, YR27, G24, G28, C5
Trees: BG90, W1, BG93, BG96, BG99
Snow: BG0000, C0, C1, R0000
Sky: B0000

The sentiment, again from the Cool Christmas set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Wow Metallic First Frost Embossing Powder.


To give a little added dimension to the card, I adhered the die-cut snowmen in their car to the background image with foam tape, before mounting on to a plain white card base with a Cement Gray mount.

You don't have long to wait until you can put this adorable stamp set in your shopping cart!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.
Until next time, happy colouring.
