My Favorite Things–December Release Countdown Day 5!

Hello Friends!!

Print

Can you believe that it’s already time to start the count down to the My Favorite Things November Release?!!  Where did October go, for crying out loud?!!  At any rate, it is in fact November, so let’s get started with the countdown, shall we?!

I have two projects to share for today’s countdown, and they both feature the amazing new background stamp called the Mesmerizing Mandala Background!  This stamp is truly incredible, and has quickly become one of my new favorite images!  My first project features a partial stamp of the Mesmerizing Mandala Background onto some Black Licorice Card Stock using VersaMark, and then heat embossed with three different colors of glitter embossing powder (that I had in my stash)!  I also stamped the Merry Christmas Greeting Stamp with VersaMark, and applied the three colors of glitter at the same time.  I love the dramatic look of the three jewel colors against that black card stock!

My second project again features the Mesmerizing Mandala Background Stamp.  But this time I partially stamped it first on some Red Hot Card Stock using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink and heating embossing with White Embossing Powder, and then a second time onto a Smooth White Card Stock card base using VersaMark and heat embossed with red embossing powder.  I trimmed the red panel at an angle using the Stitched Basic Edges 2 Die-Namics, and then trimmed a Brushed Silver Card Stock panel using the same die.  The sentiment is from the Hand Lettered Holiday Stamp Set, and it was stamped using VersaMark and was heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.  Again, I’m in love with that amazing scrolled design and love the effect of the split coloring.

I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used for both projects below.  Please click on through to the MFT Design Blog to be linked to the other beautiful countdown projects that my brilliant teammates have created for you using some of the November Release products!  And be sure to leave some love along the way for your chance to win a $75 Gift Voucher from My Favorite Things!  All of the November Release products will be available in the MFT Online Boutique on Tuesday, November 7th at 9:00 PM EST!!

I’ll be back again tomorrow with another count down project, so I hope you’ll drop by again soon!  Thanks so much for spending part of your day here with me – it makes my day when you do!

Both cards are really bold and stunning!

Connie Riley said...

Both cards are quite striking, although I have to say the red and white combination is a particularly pleasing favorite combination for me. I love how you've used the new Mesmermizing die in two different ways. This is going to be quite a versatile die and you've shown such creative ways to use it. Thanks for expanding my horizons.
