PI - Sending You a Little Christmas, Little Pumpkin, Snow Angel

Good Morning and welcome to MFT Teaser Day Three! The Teaser's are just flying by aren't they? Are you enjoying all the wonderful creations? For more, featuring these stamps, please go HERE to MFT blog, starting at 11 AM EST, and visit each DT Members blog. Would you like to know how to get these cute stamps? All of the stamps will be available for sale, on October 6th, after the Blog Hop and Release Party, at 10 PM EST! Please join us all on the SCS MFT Member Company thread while they release all their new Yummy stamps!

I have three cards to show you today, and the first one is PI "Sending You a Little Christmas".


I was not able to find my Christmas papers that I wanted to use for her coat, so I painted in little key areas to highlight them and give some interest. I used a deep, deep green card stock and ribbon to give my card a strong accent color and draw your eye to the little girl. The Open Scallop Die-Namic was used under the green ribbon for an accent piece.

My next card is showing PI "Little Pumpkin".

I love pumpkins and I love the MFT PI's, so when I saw this set I was crazy in love! I deliberately made everything green, because it enhances the bold orange pumpkin. I used K&Co and Graphic 45 papers for the two green backgrounds and a My Mind's Eye paper for the pumpkin. Then I went over the pumpkin with a Tombow to give shading to the deep grooves.

My last card is PI Snow Angel, isn't she cute?! Ok, time to put on our imagination hats for just a minute :) The idea behind this card, is that your looking through a window and watching her build a snowman.


I scored and folded cream CS so it pops out a 1/4 of an inch to create a shadowboxed window. I set the card at a slight angle to hopefully show the shadow box effect. The blue transparencies are from My Mind's Eye. They represent the frost on the window, and the wind swirling around outside. I used a Tombow to color in the hat, boots and mittens. I used some Spellbinders Squares, Fancy Tags, and a Big Scalloped Circle for the window cut out.

Please don't forget to join in all the fun on the MFT GDT Challenge, HERE. You could win over $100 worth of stamps and be next months MFT GDT Member!

That's all I have for today, but comeback again tomorrow and the MFT Designers and I will be showing some more fun sets that I'm sure you will enjoy!! :)
