MFT -OCTOBER VAULT RELEASE DAY

 Hello and welcome to MFT October Vault Release Day! Vault is now open and you can find all the amazing products at the MFT Shop.

My project today features the BB Warmest Wishes, Dashing Deer stamp sets, and the Snow Capped Mountains Die-namics from the newly released vault.

To begin, I Copic colored the stamped images from the BB Warmest Wishes and the Dashing Deer stamp sets and die-cut them with the coordinating Die-namics.

For the front panel, I trimmed A2 size Cement Gray Cardstock and ink blended it with Gravel Gray Premium Dye Ink. 

The moon was die-cut with the smallest die from the A2 Circle STAX Die-namics. 

The mountains were die-cut with Snow-Capped Mountains Die-namics using the Sno Cone Cardstock and lightly ink blended it Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink and assembled as shown.

The snowdrift panels were die-cut with the Stitched Slimline Snow Drifts Die-namics and trimmed to fit an A2 card. The sentiment from the Dashing Deer stamp set was stamped on the shorter panel.

To assemble the card, I adhered the moon, the mountains, the snowdrifts, and the colored images to make my scene.

To finish, I added splatters of white ink to create snow.



That's it for today. Thank you for joining me during the Vault Release Countdown. 

Happy stamping!
