Hello, hello, hello!
We meet again!
And guess what? We are a day closer to the October release (cough… Oct. 14th… cough) from My Favorite Things.
So here we go. Cha-cha! (<—- Sorry, had to do it.)
Here’s card #1.
I am such a fan of making little scenes so that’s what I did here. And I am a big fan of stamps and dies that work together so I did some high levels of mixing and matching here. Took a stamp from here. Added a stamp from over there. A little bit of this. And a little bit of that. And so on.
I cut and stamped the snowman with the most adorable Christmas Cuteness stamp set and coordinating Christmas Cuteness Die-namics dies. There’s a tree in that set (and it’s ADORABLE), but I decided to pair the snowman up with a tree from the Jingle All the Way stamp set. Remember the trees from this post? It’s like those. 😉
If you look at the sentiment, you’ll see I went kinda crazy there too.
I stamped the words from the Many Merry Messages stamp (you’ll be hearing lots more about this set in couple days) with Sno Cone ink and then again but slightly off-set over them with black ink. The peace word was die-cut with the Peace, Joy, Love Die-namics (which … surprise… you’ll be also hearing about in a couple days).
Like I said, I love it when you can mix and match things together. MFT’s October release is FILLED products that allow you to do that. (This crafty girl says, “Thank you, MFT product designers. Thank you.”)
And meet card #2.
I wanted to do something clean and a little unusual with MFT’s new Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics. Sure, you can make snowy hills with them like I did with the first card. But I think they make really cool design elements too. So, yeah. I took three pieces of cardstock and then used one of the dies to cut the pattern at the bottom. Sorta kinda love how they look all stacked up together.
I finished the card off by die-cutting a snowflake with the new Pierced Snowflakes Die-namics and then chopping it in half and slapping a “thanks” word (cut with the Many Thanks Die-namics) in the middle of the two pieces.
