Warm & Fuzzy Winter Wishes

We have a fabulous sketch for you this week. I decided to ink up the adorable Warm & Feathered Friends stamps set. I stamped the image on X-Press It card stock, I coulored it with Copics and finished it off with a few strokes with Pablos pencils.

Sassy Pants Holiday

We are back with a few of our favourite friends to take another look at the new release. I created a couple of projects to share with you that feature the Sassy Pants Holiday stamp set. I love the fun sentiments in this set, they aren't for everyone, but I know lots of people will enjoy them.

I paired a fun sentiment from Sassy Pants Holiday with five festive martini glasses from the Martini Time stamp set. I stamped the martinis in Green Room and Wild Cherry Premium Dye Ink.


There always seems to be lots of wine flowing during the holidays so I like to make sure that I have a few extra wine tags on hand for Christmas giving. 


Here's a closer look at the wine tag. I created a shaker tag with the Christmas Tree Window Die-namics. I die-cut the tag in Smooth White card stock and inked it up with Broken China Oxide Ink. The ornaments on the tree were coloured with Copics. The sentiment from the Sassy Pants Holiday stamp set was the perfect finishing touch.

Snowflake Window Luminaria

Thank you for joining me as we count down to the MFT release. We are four days away from the big day! All the new Stamps and Die-namics will be available on Tuesday, November 13 at 10:00 am EDT. Be sure to check out the MFT Blog to see all the new items being revealed today. Don't forget to leave a comment on the MFT Blog countdown posts, YOU could win one of the five $75.00 gift vouchers. 

Today I am sharing a project with one of my favourtie dies from this release, the Snowflake Window Die-namics. As soon as I saw this die I knew I was going to make a luminaria. To start I die-cut pieces of Brushed Silver card stock with the Snowflake Window Die-namics. I cut two pieces of Blueberry card stock to 8 1/2" x 5" and scored each piece at 3 3/4" and 7 1/2". These two pieces will create the four walls of the luminaria.

I placed a rectangle die centered in the middle of each pannel, and I die-cut out the rectangle. I added sheets of vellum to the backside of the card stock, and then I adhered the silver snowflake windows to the front side of the card stock. The two pieces of card stock were then folded and adhered together. 

I created a top for the luminaria, you certainly don't need to, but I like the way it finishes things off.  I cut the top piece at 4"x4" and I scored all sides at 3/8". I used a battery operated light for the candle.
