Designer Snowflake!!!


Wow!! What an evening!! Last night was the December Release Party on SCS for the new My Favorite Things stamps and let's just say my head is still spinning!! I got to see a lot of you over there, so you know what I'm talking about!!

We all met in the MFT forum at 9pm EST and had a blast!! Everyone was yakkin' and asking questions and the thread was moving a mile a minute!!! There were some sneaky peeks of the new sets, there is a contest to be a Guest Designer which ends tonight and there was a gift to everyone from Kim at MFT!!!

To be a MFT Guest Designer for January, see this thread for all the details!! You can win all the January release stamp sets and be on our Design Team for January!! We will be running this contest every month and it's gonna be fun!!

Also as a holiday gift to YOU, there is a coupon code for 20% off most items in the MFT store so be sure to use the code SCS1207 when you place your order. This code is good for a couple of days so don't miss out!!

So here is one of my creations for the release using Baby It's Cold Outside!! Actually I think this is my favourite of my own creations this time around. I got a bare wood cutout of a snowflake at Michael's in the $ spot and brought it home, knowing exactly what I wanted to do with it!!!

First I traced the snowflake onto this awesome designer paper by Heidi Grace and attached it to the wood. I stamped the BICOutside image onto SU watercolour paper and coloured her in using my SU markers and outlined the snowman and the snow using my Sakura Stardust gel pen. I also paper pieced her winter coat using some coordinating dp, matted the whole thing and added a snowflake brad by Karen Foster. I used a length of grosgrain ribbon to hang it from and added some yummy white organdy ribbon at the top and bottom. The bells charm at the top is actually from some wine charms that I found and I added it to the tag I made at the top using the BICOutside sentiment. Then I finished it off by placing some of my Mother of Pearl Bellas Baubles on each point of the snowflake.........aaaaaaaaaand I just noticed now that I missed a few of the points.........how embarassing!! Well, I guess now you know that I'm not perfect........baaaaaahahahaha!! I'll have to go back and fix that. Whoops.

Anyway, have a wonderful day. I hope you are getting all set for the holidays but enjoying yourself at the same time!! And in order to do that, you MUST stamp something.....Kimmie says!!

oooh ahhhh, Kim! This is so pretty! I love the paper piecing and sparkles! Late congratulations on becoming a design team member for MFT! I snuck in there a few times, but was distracted with Spiderman 3 and making cards! Can't wait to place my next order!
