Sweater Weather - MFT September Release Countdown Day 5

August 29, 2019

The MFT September Release Countdown has begun! We will be showcasing the new fabulous stamps and Die-namics for the next five days. So make sure you stop by the MFT blog every day to see the full reveal of the new products and for more inspiration from the DT.

It's still been hot and humid here in Japan. But it's already time to think about winter in our stamping world. Right? Well, I'm sweating as I'm trying to shift my gears. LOL.
So, I have two cards to share with you today that feature the new stamp sets from my Birdie Brown line, the Sweater Weather on Safari and the Sweater Weather in the Wood

The Sweater Weather on Safari Stamp Set includes four safari animals wearing sweaters. I stamped them on No-Line Coloring CS with Milk Chocolate Hybrid Ink and colored with Copic Markers. (BTW, I used No-line Coloring CS for the first time, and I LOVE it!! The surface is so smooth, Copics blend nicely without bleeding, and it is thick enough for layering Copics. I haven't tried yet, but I think it works so well with colored pencils, too!)

 To create my background panel, I stamped the Knitted Sweater Background onto Natural CS using Natural Premium Dye Ink. I cut it with the A2 Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics and inked around the edges with Natural and Kraft Premium Dye Inks for a vignette effect. Once it dried, I spattered some white ink to add more texture.

I created a winter scene on a Smooth White panel using the Drifts & Hills Stencil and the Trio of Trees Stamp Set. I stamped, colored, and cut out all the critters from the set and added to the scene.

I put a tiny cap on the moose and the beaver. This cap fits almost all the animals in the Sweater Weather on Safari and the Sweater Weather in the Woods Stamp Sets. ;)

The new products will be available for purchase on September 3 at 10 am EDT.
