Happy Friday! Today I am delighted to be guesting over on the MFT Blog. I have been a huge fan of My Favorite Things for a long time so getting to share a project created with the amazing MFT collection of products is a dream come true for me!
For my card today, I created a snowy scene that would work not only for winter but would make a lovely Valentine’s Day card as well.
I die cut my background from Grout Gray Cardstock using the largest Die-namice Rectangle Frames die. I set the frame portion aside for another project and stamped the inside piece with the Confetti Background Stamp using white pigment ink. The confetti makes the perfect falling snow, don’t you think?!!!
I die cut and stamped the adorable little girl from the Warmest Wishes stamp set and colored her in with Copic Markers (I've listed the individual Copic Marker colors and what I colored each area with below the next photo). I adhered her to the snowy scene.
I wanted to use the greeting from the Warmest Wishes stamp set but couldn’t make the horizontal sentiment work with my card design. No worries! I simply cut apart each word carefully with sharp scissors and created a vertical greeting by stamping each word individually one on top of another with the Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and Wild Cherry Hybrid Ink. If I want to use the greeting in it’s original form next time, all I have to do is piece it back together on an acrylic block. Easy peasy!
I die cut several hearts from Insulation Pink Cardstock, Whip Cream Cardstock and Wild Cherry Cardstock using the Mason Jar Die-namics collection heart die. I colored over each with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker to make them shimmery and adhered them to my scene.
Copic Markers Used: R00, R30, R32 (dress), R14, R27, R29, R59 (scarf, hat, mittens), E00, E11, E13, R20 (skin), E53, E55, E57 (boots), E55, E57, E47, E49 (hair)
Detail on hat and dress: Sakura White Gel Pen and Sakura Stardust Glitter Pen
I LOVE the Cozy Mittens Die-namics and thought it would be fun to create some quick felt ornaments for our red and white Christmas tree (these would make a cute gift topper too!). I die cut the mittens and snowflakes from Whip Cream Felt and Wild Cherry Felt, hand stitched the snowflakes to the mittens and then whip stitched the two mittens together, leaving about an 1.25” opening to stuff them full of polyester fiberfill, then I stitched the mittens closed. I think a string of these would make a fun garland.... ;)
