MFT & Friends November Release

Happy Release Day! The November Release is now available in the MFT shop! All new products in the Release can be found HERE. I am showcasing the new Winter Wreath stamp set for today’s card.

I recently got my hands on black watercolor paper, and thought it would be perfect for this wreath. I stamped, and gold heat-embossed the image, then moved on to painting. I used Coliro Pearlcolors metallic watercolors to paint the wreath. I used a #2 round brush, and clean water. I did only one coat of color, so the painting took just a few minutes. Once the paper was dry, I used the coordinating die to die-cut it.

For the background, I used black ink to stamp the new Baccarat Background stamp onto Steel Grey card stock. I used a circle die to die-cut a window, and glued the wreath onto it. I attached the panel onto a card base, and finished the card with a stamped sentiment from Winter Wreath stamp set.

Be sure to stop by the MFT blog  for details on today’s release, and on a big giveaway. There’s also a full list of this month’s designers, and tons of inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Aw, it’s pretty! I love seeing all the ways people are using that fantastic wreath, and the versatility of the baccarat background is amazing. Thank you for the inspiration.

  2. oooh, black watercolor paper… that sounds interesting and it looks amazing with that whisper of color. I love this new wreath die, especially with the adorable birds. Great Job!

  3. I like the wreath. I do not have it…yet! I wonder what it would look like done completely embossed in fine gold. Are the spaces between the leaves big enough to put a dot of color on in addition to the embossing.

  4. This is a beautiful card… I just now noticed the little acorns from the elegant way you colored them. Have to admit, screenshot taken, I’m going to try this. Beautiful!

  5. What a great way to combine the angular background with the circular wreath. I love how this turned out, and it reminds me that I need to use my metallic watercolors more!

  6. Its so cool how you made this card its beautiful with the metallic watercolors with the Steel Gray Cardstock draws my eye to it more than it already does
