Gosh, sitting here and typing up my Day 4 post for the MFT October Release Countdown and thinking of all the beautiful comments that you have left for Day 5, it always making crafting so worthwhile when you read beautiful comments like this, thank you to all of you xx

So with that being said, let’s share Day 4, today I am sharing the latest Stacey Yacula stamp set called Merry Wishes..

I wanted to use all these sweet little images but sadly only so much room on a card LOL, so choosing the ones I wanted I stamped out and once again coloured with my Polychromos..

I die cut each of these sweeties and set these aside to work on the rest of the card..

Taking a panel of white card stock, I masked off around the panel and applied After Midnight, Blue Yonder and Blue Breeze inks to give a night time feel..

I flicked water over the top to make the ink wick and then added clear glitter pen to add some sparkle over the panel and also adding some to my images..

I stamped a sentiment at the base of the inked panel then arranged my little images and the card was complete…

Be sure to swing past the blog to check out even more product sneaks and more inspiration from the team..

I will be back with Day 3 tomorrow!

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!
