MFT Festive Flamingos Card Kit Countdown Day 1

October 21, 2018

The MFT October Card Kit Countdown has just begun. This month's kit is called Festive Flamingos, and it is cute and funny! :D In addition to the kit, we have a special release this month!! A new illustrator, Stacey Yacula has joined MFT, and her first stamp set will be released! Make sure you visit the MFT blog for the full reveal of the kit and Stacey's stamp set, and for more inspiration from the DT.



(NOTE: The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
Today I combined a funny flamingo from the Festive Flamingos stamp set with the Beach Scene Builder Die-namics to create an odd scene.
I cut a panel of Lavender Fields CS using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics and daubed some Purple Rain Premium Dye Ink to make an ombre background. I die cut and assembled two palm trees, then added SO much falling snow by spattering white ink. I used the coconuts die to cut the 'ornaments' on my palm Christmas trees. 



The flamingo was stamped, colored, and cut out with the matching die. I had her (him? I don't know.) stand on a snowy ground cut with the Stitched Basic Edges 2 Die-namics
I added some Glossy Accents to the ornaments on the trees and the lights on flamingo's neck. I also added a little shimmer to the flamingo with a Wink of Stella pen.

The new kit, as well as the stamp set designed by Stacey Yacula, will be available for purchase on October 23 at 10:00 am EDT
Head on over to the MFT blog for more inspiration from the DT!

Thank you for stopping by!

  4. Love the palm trees with lights, they remind me of my brother-in-law & late father-in-law. Every year they would put hundreds of lights on his palm tree in the yard. Really cute card.
