My Favorite Things November Release Countdown | Day 5

Hello and welcome to the My Favorite Things November release countdown. We have some really great winter themed products this month as well as new stamps and dies featuring one of my favourite things in the world... coffee! :)

Today we're kicking things off with two super cute winter stamp sets and some gorgeous mandala stamps and dies. My cards today feature the new Mesmerizing Mandala Die-namics - a gorgeous die that works as a snowflake on a holiday card!


I created two inked panels using Distress inks, and then I cut the mandala's from them to create the two snowflakes that I featured on my cards. For one of them I combined Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry for a multicolour look and the second one I did completely pink and let it fade a little lighter around the outside edge.


Once I had the snowflakes created, I diecut the mandala shape from the front of a white and black card base and backed the openings with Silver Sparkle card stock. I then adhered the die cut pieces into the opening so they would be inlaid into the card front with the silver sparkle showing through.

I finished both cards with a sentiment strip across the center of the snowflake and then I added some jewels to the snowflakes for added sparkle and dimension.

Make sure to head over to the MFT blog to see the rest of the products being revealed today and to see more ideas from the design team using the new stamps and dies. The November release will be available on November 7th at 9pm EST!

See you tomorrow for more countodwn fun! :)
