My Favorite Things October Release Countdown: 3 Days Until The Release

We are at the halfway point on the MFT October Release Countdown… There’s a new round of product sneak peeks being featured on the MFT blog today, including the new Merry Elfin’ Christmas stamp, and Elfin’ Around Die-namics.

These two products together are so darn cute! I used the Mini Staggered Circles Stencil to add green glitter paste to dark green card stock. Once dry, I die-cut the elf hat, and die-cut white glitter paper for the trim and ball. I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock with embossing ink, and heat-embossed it with red embossing powder. I trimmed the panel with a stitched rectangle, attached it to a card base with foam adhesive, and added the hat with thin foam squares to finish the card.

I used a bright color combination for my next Christmas card.

I started with the new Peace, Love, And Joy Stencil. I blended Razzle Berry, Blue Raspberry, Limelight, and Jelly Bean MFT inks over the stencil, then added a thin layer of iridescent glitter glaze before removing the stencil. I set that aside, and started die-cutting.

I used the wreath from the Joyful Wreath Die-namics to die-cut Blue Raspberry, Jelly Bean, and Limelight card stock. I attached them together, using glue, then snipped a few branches and tucked them on in random spots. I added Multi Media Matte to some of the tips, and poured Distress Clear Rock Candy over the adhesive. I die-cut white card stock with the wreath die, and used the stencil to add light grey ink. I glued the wreath to the white card stock, and added die-cut berries.

I die-cut Joy from the new Joy, Love Peace Die-namics three times out of red card stock. I stacked and glued them together, then used the peppermint accessory die from the same die set to add the white swirl. I trimmed the stenciled background, and attached it to a card base with foam adhesive. I added the wreath and letters next with glue, and finished the card by adding shimmer and Crystal Glaze to Joy and the berries.

Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog today to see all of today’s product sneak peeks, and check out the inspiration and ideas from the design team. Everything you see this week will be available on Tuesday, October 8, at 10am EST. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Love these – especially Merry Elfin’ Christmas! The detail on the wreath in the last card is awesome!

  2. I like the background of the wreath card and the use of blue leaves in your wreath is extremely nice. So holiday-ish having the peppermint candy in the center.
