Cool Christmas - MFT Hits & Highlights

November 27, 2018

Hello! It's time for a Hits & Highlights DT Challenge on the MFT blog. This month we're challenged to create a Christmas card/project featuring blues and purples.

I pulled out the Santa's Elves stamp set & Die-namics for the first time in a while! It's always fun to revisit an old set - I realized that my dies were solid (I mean they're not open inside.) after I stamped and colored the elf. How many years ago was it MFT changed their dies into open style? (I believe the Santa's Elves Die-namics that are available now are open inside.)

To create my background, I heat embossed the snowflakes with white embossing powder and blended Shaded Lilac and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks over them.

I stamped the tree, which is from the Oh Christmas Trees stamp set, with Grapesicle and Grape Jelly Premium Dye Inks to get an ombre look. I embellished it with Nuvo Purple Rain Glitter Drops and added a little bow and a sequin on top. The elf was stamped onto Neenah Solar White CS with Milk Chocolate Hybrid Ink and was colored with Copic Markers.
The sentiment is from the Snow Globe Sentiments stamp set. I heat embossed it onto Boysenberry CS and cut out with a strip die from the Hearts in a Row - Vertical Die-namics.

Head on over to the MFT blog to see what the other DT members have come up with for today!

Thank you for stopping by.
