MFT November Release Countdown--Day 1



It's the last day of My Favorite Things November Release Countdown!

Yep, the entire release goes on sale tomorrow in the MFT Store!
Today I'm sharing a card using Simply Snowflakes which was part of
September's (sold out) Snowflake Sparkle Card Kit, in non traditional colors.


Assorted snowflakes were white embossed on watercolor card stock and
ink distressed with Distress inks, then spattered with water. The panel was
cut with the rectangle element from Blueprints 24 and adhered to a
card base, and the card was finished with the sentiment stamped in black.

a chance to win $75 in prizes! Hope to see you tomorrow for the Release!

MFT November Release Countdown--Day 2



We're down to Day 2 of My Favorite Things November Release Countdown
and Laina Lamb brings us a fun--and yummy!--new stamp set, Cookie Crumbs,
and matching Die-namics, You're the Milk to My Cookie. Even their names are FUN!


If you owned Laina's (now retired) Donuts, you're going to love her cookies! I had
so much fun building cookies and creating different flavors and combinations.
There's even a cross hatch pattern to mimic the design that you get when you press
a fork into the dough. And yes, I do believe that's a peanut butter cookie--yum!



There's also a "bite" die to create a cookie that's been chomped--how fun is that?
I piled the cookies on a kraft card base and added a stitched frame. I stamped
the sentiment and added some highlights on the iced cookies with a pigment pen.

Visit today's countdown post at My Favorite Things to see more peeks of the
November release and don't forget to leave a comment there for a chance to win
$75 in prizes! Thanks so much for stopping by!

MFT November Release Countdown--Day 3



Welcome back to Day 3 of My Favorite Things November Release Countdown!
This month's Pure Innocence is a sweet little ice skater, aptly called Ice Skater.
Isn't she the sweetest?


She was colored with Copics and cut with the matching dies. I grounded
her on a little patch of ice using the Oval Shadow Die-namics. The panel
was cut with the rectangle element from Blueprints 24 and adhered
to a Sno Cone card base.

I adhered a few snowflakes around her and white embossed the sentiment
and adhered it to the card. I finished off the card with some Nuvo Drops.

MFT November Release Countdown--Day 4



It's Day 4 of My Favorite Things November Release Countdown!

This month, Birdie Brown brings us Polar Bear Pals, a set of adventurous
bears and cubs, who pair nicely with her new Iceberg Die-namics.


I die cut a white panel with the rectangle element from Blueprints 24, then
cut out a Starry Circle. The circle was ink distressed with several colors of
Distress inks--I was trying to replicate the Northern Lights--then spattered
with water. I adhered the panel to a card base, then popped in the Starry Circle.



I colored the polar bear with some warm Copics, and cut him out with the
matching Die-namics. Two icebergs were cut and lightly distressed to give them
some definition. I adhered the icebergs and popped up the bear with dimensional
adhesive, then stamped the sentiment beneath him.

When I finished the card, it reminded me of a snow globe. Totally unplanned,
of course! Be sure to visit today's countdown post at My Favorite Things for more
inspiration from the design team and leave a comment to be eligible for a $75 prize!
