MFT Stamps | Merry & Bright Card Kit Release Countdown – Two Days and Counting!

September 20, 2020

Hello friends! I am so excited to share this month’s gorgeous card kit with you from My Favorite Things! The Merry & Bright Card Kit will be available this coming Tuesday, September 22nd at 10AM EDT.

I have two fun but simple cards to share with you today that showcase this kit. For my first one, I used the cardstock that comes in the kit to create a strand of Christmas lights. I then blended the matching ink to each light onto a piece of vellum directly under the spot where each light would sit. (The ink colors that I used are linked below at the bottom of this post.) I then stamped my sentiment with black ink on the bottom right portion of my card.

For my second card, I once again used the colored cardstock that is included with the kit and added my strand of lights to my card front. I stamped my fun sentiment with a cute little “Let’s Get Lit” Stamp Set that is only available exclusively in the kit.

To finish my card, I layered it with one of the colorful pieces of cardstock from the Very Merry Patterned Paper Pad that also is included in this kit.

Here’s a look at everything that is included! This kit will be available in a bundle deal while supplies last! Make sure to stop by the MFT Blog for more kit inspiration! Leave a comment there for a chance to win a $25 MFT Gift Voucher!

    I like the first card with the blended glow.

  • Jackie McKnite September 20, 2020 at 11:08 AM

    Everyone seems to be doing Christmas lights cards. Nice to see the various interpretations. I like the one with the glow around each light.

      Thanks so much for stopping by, Jackie! I appreciate your sweet comments! 🙂

  • Pat Bethke September 20, 2020 at 11:08 AM

    I like both cards. The glow around the bulbs in the first card is nice. Thank you for the inspiration.

  • Teri September 20, 2020 at 11:23 AM

    Awesome cards. I love the ink blended flow on the first card and the clean look of the second.

  • Jessica Scott September 20, 2020 at 11:42 AM

    Both of your cards are lovely! I especially like the “glow” around the first card. This is a great kit!

    • rachelalvaradodesigns September 20, 2020 at 1:15 PM

      Thank you so much for your lovely comments, Karen! 🙂

  • SueB September 20, 2020 at 12:24 PM

    OMG, I really love this kit. Your cards are so nicely done!! The sentiments are too funny 🤣

      Thank you so much, Stacy! I like the sentiments too!

  • Johanna Rundell September 20, 2020 at 2:20 PM

    Adding a halo of colour around the lights is genius and makes the card glow. Nicely executed.

    • rachelalvaradodesigns September 21, 2020 at 2:24 AM

      Thank you for such sweet comments, Johanna! It’s such a fun kit to play with!

  • Katherine September 20, 2020 at 2:34 PM

    Oh I love this Rachel!!! What a great kit!!!

    Love both your cards. So creative

  • Anne Sturgeon September 20, 2020 at 4:16 PM

    I like them both but your trick with the vellum really makes for a warm glow. I am truly interested in that paper pack. I am kind of a hoarder when it comes to paper packs… I think this is such a great card kit.

    • rachelalvaradodesigns September 21, 2020 at 2:25 AM

      Thank you so much, Anne! I’m a hoarder when it comes to paper packs as well lol. You’re going to love this one! It’s even prettier in person. 🙂

  • Crystal September 20, 2020 at 4:25 PM

    Pretty cards.

  • Heidi Rees September 20, 2020 at 4:57 PM

    Great cards Rachel! Love the colors you used! Holiday cards are my favorite to make! Great inspiration dear!

    Love the kit and the cards that you made.

  • Karen September 21, 2020 at 6:33 AM

    I love how you ink blended behind the bulbs in the first card. Really makes them pop.
