MFT Teaser-Frosty Fun

It's day four of MFT previews and today I'm sharing the sweetest little skater from Frosty Fun. All the new releases will be available in the MFT Boutique on Tuesday, January 4th at 10pm EST. There are two prize giveaways every teaser day so for the best chance of winning be sure to leave some love on each of the participating team member blog posts, then check the MFT blog for winners the next day.

For the past couple of years I've been on a mission to make one holiday card per week, all year long. That way I'm not swamped with mass production come December. I'm happy to report that this is my very first holiday card for 2011!!! Yippeee!!! Anyone want to join me in this challenge for 2011??? Wendy??? LOL!!

She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. I think she's even brighter IRL than on the computer screen too, but I just love her! I added some sparkle to the dots on her hat and her skate blades with a couple of Spica glitter pens. The out-of-the-box-hat-thing worked so well for my I Love Us card a couple of days ago that I decided to repeat it here. But I'll give you a little tip...I don't worry about cutting around the hat so it doesn't get cut off by the nestability. I simply cut off the top of the hat with the nestie then paper pieced a new one right over top...super quick and easy!

The patterned paper is Doodlebug Winter Wonderland and some of the snowflakes are sparkly IRL. I used my small scallop border die along the bottom edge and embellished the card with layered snowflakes that I cut with my let it snowflake trio die-namics (which are currently out of stock).

Be sure to stop by Kim's blog for a complete list of all the designers previewing sets today. I know there will be a slew of eye candy!!! Oh, and don't forget to mark your calendar for the release party on the Release Party Thread on Splitcoast, Tuesday from 8-10pm Eastern.

Today is the last day for the January Guest Designer contest. Be sure to have your project uploaded by 10pm EST tonight!! Read all the details on this thread and get stamping...you could be playing along with the MFT team for the February release, and trust me...it's a whole lot of FUN!!!

See you tomorrow for the last day or teasers!
Thanks for stopping by!
Karen

I love how you have the little girl's hat pop over the scallop border. Very clever and gives a great 3-D effect.

How do you get your inspiration each week for each card? I know I have noticed you doing the holiday cards since I've followed your blog for sometime. Just curious what gets you motivated with each creation and do you have 52-53 images to choose from or do you find you duplicate them occasionally?
