Merry Wishes

On the third day of MFTeasers I am previewing one of the FOUR new Pure Innocence stamps, Presents for You, that will be released on Wednesday night. Be sure to check out Kim's blog at 11:00 am EST to see a list of designers who will have more of the PI images on their blogs.

I am getting a nice pile of Christmas cards that I hope to start sending out next week. This one may be one of my favorites!

After coloring the image with my copics, I added Ivory Flower Soft to the hat, and then I added rhinestones to the presents. The edges are distressed with distressing ink. After cutting out the image with Nestibilities, I mounted it on a paper doily I distressing using a sponge and distressing ink. Then I punched slits to run the ribbon through. I added lace and one of the sentiments included in this set.

Then I made a matching stocking gift card holder. I cut out two of the stocking shapes and then stitched the toes to the front stocking shape, and then stitched the two stockings together to form a pocket. I added a top to the stocking and stamped the other sentiment that comes in the set. I also added a few rhinestones and a ribbon hanger.

I hope you are enjoying the previews! Be sure to join us at the release party on Wednesday night in the MFT Forum at Splitcoaststampers!
