Hi there

So I am back to start sharing the Countdown Release from MFT…Can you believe that we are now October and we are now making Christmas cards again..scary!!

This happens to be my favourite release each year and I adore making Christmas cards so I hope that not just me, but the team inspires you to start creating, be sure to check the blog for more inspiration..

I start you out with of Birdie Brown stamp sets called Christmas Selfies, you loved the last one as we all did so she created yet another fun set..

I took the snowman from the selfies set and coloured up with my Polychromos, die cutting this out using the Selfie Square die..

I worked then on the background to the card, by taking the a panel of Berrylicious card stock and masking off a section on the Ho Ho Ho Background stamp, inking up with Berrylicious and stamping onto the centre of the card..

I added my selfie and finished off the card by stamping a sentiment and adding some snowflake sequins..

I look forward being back here again tomorrow..

Have fun checking out what product is coming out with this release!

Hugs

Hi there

Hope you all had a great week, I have to say I am pleased that it is now the start of the weekend and what better way to start it by sharing my first Sneak Peeks of the Christmas Collection from Clearly Besotted..

This first card that I share with you I created using two new sets called Christmas Line Up and Sentimental Christmas..

Stamping out the polar bears from the Christmas Line Up onto some Bristol Smooth White card stock, and colouring with my Polychromos..

I then stamped onto some white card stock the Birch Tree Background and older set from Clearly Besotted and coloured this also with Polychromos..

Once I was happy with all the blending and the depth of colour I was after, I then added my little images over the birch trees and finished off stamping a sentiment from the Sentimental Christmas using Lawn Fawn, Lobster ink..

Adding this to a Sno Cone card stock…
