MFT October Release Countdown Day 1

Hi everyone! Today is the last day of the My Favorite Things October release countdown. This release is absolutely fabulous! The new products will officially be available on the MFT online store in a few hours!!! Yay!!!

The new products will officially be available on the MFT online store on October 3rd at 9:00 pm EST (= Europe: October 4th at 3:00 am CET).

Today, I’m showcasing the newest Christmas Cocktails (free with EVERY purchase) stamp set: 

Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked in the list at the bottom of this post. I started by blending a top-folded card base with blue and teal Distress inks using a blending tool. I added a strip of patterned paper at the bottom of the card base and stamped the sentiment in black ink. The sentiment is from the Uncorked stamp set and the patterned paper from the Dots & Stripes Neutral paper pack. I stamped the cocktail glasses in black ink, colored them and cut them with scissors. I fixed them on top of the sponged area using foam pads. I added clear Stickles at the bottom of each drink. It sparkles a lot but unfortunately, the picture doesn’t show it (I’m annoyed :-( because it looks a bit "splotchy" but in real life it sparkles so beautifully). I also added some Glossy Accents dots for more interest.

For today’s full product reveal, links to other fabulous projects from the MFT design team and AWESOME GIVEAWAYS, be sure to check out the MFT blog
