Creating for the MFT Stamps October release is always my favorite month each year and this October release is no exception. Today I’m back for the final day of the countdown, Day 1 and I’m excited for the product launch tonight. Moving on from Christmas to Valentines, this card with it’s fun shaker hearts just makes me smile.
While it does have a lot of Valentine elements, I’m not going to wait that long to send it. I think this sweet card is just the thing to send to my mother-in-law as she adjusts to life in a new home. It’s not quite where she’d like to be and it’s going to be a difficult adjustment for us all as we help her through this new phase in her life. I want her to know how very much she is loved and so I’ll be sending this card off to her to enjoy.
The main shaker, heart and tic tac toe area is the focal point of this card and is made up of a few new products from MFT Stamps. The Tic Tac Toe Die-namics is die-cut twice and glued together to form a dimensional grid that is encapsulated by the Square Shaker Pouch. The Mixed Heart Pieces look adorable mixed with vintage buttons in the tic tac toe areas of the grid. It’s all held together with the Square Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics.
Quick Tip: Layer the sheer heart embellishments over patterned paper to show off their translucent qualities. I love this little peek at the pattern through them!
Two sentiment stamp sets come into play on this card. The S.W.A.K. you’ve seen before from the Sending Smooches Stamp Set and the Sent with Love sentiment is from the new X’s and O’s Stamp Set that coordinates with all the fun tic tac toe elements from this release.
I also wanted to show you another look at the new Cross-Stitch Tag Die-namics. I love this big tag and when you cut out the cross stitch area, the plain tag is perfect for backing a stitched tag OR, as in this case, just using as a lovely tag to layer on. I’ve stamped this tag with Cotton Candy ink using the Mesh Background Stamp. I love how it adds just a subtle touch of print and color. I’ve made a mental note to use this stamp more often!
Cardstock Used: Smooth White, Cotton Candy, Gravel Gray
Patterned Paper Used: Gray & White Basics Paper Pad
