MFTWSC199 - Merry & Bright

Hi and thanks for stopping by today! Its Wednesday which means it is time for a new  MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge, MFTWS199. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT blog. I hope you get a chance to play along!

Here is my take on the sketch. 

To cut the background I used the Square Grid Cover-Up Die-namics and Black Licorice Card Stock. Behind the Grid I added a panel of vellum and then a panel of Banana Split Card Stock. The sentiment is from the Cheerful Christmas Greetings Stamp Set, stamped in Wild Cherry Ink

The sentiment is cut out with the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics. The Jellybean Green circle is cut with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics and the rhinestone is from my stash. 

Here's a closer look at the Christmas Wreath created with the Winter Wreath Die-namics. I cut the wreath three times and layered the wreath on top of each other. The bow is included in the Winter Wreath Die-namics. 

On the inside the sentiment and bell image are stamped with the Inspired by Christmas Stamp Set. 

Here are the products I used to create my card:

MFT's October Rewind Part 1

Thanks for stopping by for MFT's October Rewind - Part 1!  The MFT Team has another two days of inspiration for you using using newly released products that are available HERE NOW. You can stop by the MFT Blog for the list of all the designers sharing projects today. 

My first project is a card using the new Perk Up Stamp Set and Coffee Cup Die-namics

On this card I wanted to used the Perk Up Stamp Set with a Christmas theme to make a gift card to give at the holidays. 

The background is created with the new Snowflake Fusion Cover-Up Die-namics from Whip Cream Card Stock. I used the Horzontal Stitched Strips Die-namics to add the gold center strip and the new Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics to back the coffee cup. 

Here's a closer look at the coffee cup created with the Coffee Cup Die-namics. The sentiment is from another new stamp set released this month, Gifting Fun, and cut out with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. 

Here's a look at the inside put together with the Gift Card Grooves, Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics, Snowfall Background Stamped, and the Pierced Snowflake Die-namics. 

My second project is a 12 x 12 scrapbook page. 

I covered the background of my paper with Snowfall Background stamp in Sno Cone Ink. I used the new Peace, Love, Joy Die-namics to add those words to the page. I cut each word once from a lightweight chipboard and a second time from Electric Red Card Stock, and add a coat of Glitter Glaze

I pulled out the Document It - Holiday Traditions Stamp Set to create some embellishments. My notecard cut with the Insert it Die-namics and the lines are stamped with a stamp in the Journal It - For the Record Stamp Set. 

I used the Pierced Snowflakes Die-namics to tuck in a few snowflakes on the layout. I added some additional textures with the new Herringbone Brick Stencil, light molding paste, and Jellybean Green Ink. 

I used this months Free with $60 to cut the tree for my layout and stamped the pattern on the tree with the Linen Background Stamp.
