MFT Stamps, Festive Friends | Two Days Until the New Release!

October 6, 2019

Hello everyone! Are you ready? There are only two days left until the latest release from MFT Stamps becomes available! My card today features the adorable Festive Friends Stamp Set! I like to think of the two characters in my scene today as Frosty and Rudolph lol.

I used a couple of new products for my scene today. I stamped my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Black Ink and colored with Copics. I then used the coordinating Festive Friends Die-namics to cut them out.

For my background sky, I blended some Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock. I let it dry and then used the new Snowfall-Vertical Stencil to apply some White Texture Paste to resemble falling snow.

I added a snowy hill and some snowy pine trees in the background of my card using the new Snowy Scene Builder Die-namics. I then added another snowy drift to the front of my card using the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics.

Once I had the background scene put together and attached to my card base, I then added my images using some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares. Lastly, I heat embossed my sentiment onto a piece of Black Licorice Card Stock and then trimmed it down to fit my card.

    What a fun and whimsical card this is, and I love the gleaming white gel you’ve used.

      Thank you so much, Nessy! I love adding white gel paint a lot of times because it seems to help the images to really pop. :0)

    Do you have any coloring videos? I LOVE your shadowing!

      Thank you so much, sweet Meghan! :0) I don’t have any coloring videos but it’s a goal of mine for the future! However, at the moment, my schedule won’t allow for the extra time it would take to create them lol.
