How many items have you got on your wish list?

Before you head off to the store for that little pre-Christmas crafting treat, allow me to share my final project from this release:

Cuteness alert!  These sweet little critters are just adorable and can be found in the new "Fox and Friend" stamp set (matching dies are available too)

I opted to keep the overall design of the card quite simple, with a background from the Petite Plaid paper pad.

Background: B0000, B000, G20, G40, T1, YG61, 0, YR21
Fox: YR30, E40, E21, E11, E13, E15, RV91, W9
Mouse: W0, W1, W2, W3, W4, W5, W7, RV91

As always on the day of the launch, please don't forget to leave a comment on my blog for your chance of winning one of two $100 MFT Store Vouchers......now wouldn't that be an awesome early Christmas present!

All that is left for me to say is........

Happy Shopping

Today I wanted to share the project I created with the "Best Wishes" Die-Namic, our Free with $60 die that will be available from MFTstamps.com for qualifing orders from Tuesday.

The background was created using the Geometric Stars Stencil and some Distress Oxide inks, with a spritz of Perfect Pearls mist to finish.  I continued the colour scheme with Sweet Tooth and Blue Yonder card stock, adding several mounts to a top folding square card base.

I cut the sentiment out three times, twice in white with a final layer of Blue Yonder, which I then coated with Nuvo Glitter Gloss for added sparkle.  I find three layers of cardstock glued together is more than sufficient.

I will be back on launch day but please don't forget to visit the MFT Blog to see more inspiration using products from the release on Tuesday.

Until then
Happy Colouring

Well hello there and welcome to the start of the countdown for this months new release
at MFT Stamps.

Today I have a new Die-Namics called "Bold Beautiful", ideal for those days when you are not in the mood to colour!

 I opted for a sparkly, copper colour scheme - with the aid of MFT Copper Sparkle and Copper Shine card.  Both the card base and inside of the lettering were cut from Neenah 110lb.  I added just a smidge of Copic colouring (E30 and E21) and finished it off with a  touch of Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss.....well it is nearly Christmas after all!

Thanks for dropping by, I will be back tomorrow with some colouring, I do hope you will join me.

Until then
Happy Colouring
