MFT November Release Blog Hop!

Welcome to the MFT November Release Blog hop! If you just happened upon my blog and want to start for the beginning, hop on over to Kim's blog! After the hop, which if full of inspiration, you can shop HERE for all the new goodies, including the 11 new stamp sets!

First, I have to say how much I have enjoyed being the Guest Designer this month. What could be better??

Having Kim and Jody call you early one morning and ask you if you would like to be an official member of the Design Team!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, I couldn't say YES fast enough. I am so excited, nervous, and absolutely thrilled to join MFT's fabulous team. I am so honored and really can't thank Kim enough for having confidence in me!

So on t0 my first post as an official Design Team Member!

I absolutely love the new Pure Innocence stamps. For this project I used Snow Day. I made a little gift set that would be prefect for Christmas or any winter holiday, party or birthday.

I stamped the sweet image and paper pieced her hat and scarf. I colored the rest of the image with copics, adding stickles to the snow, snow balls, and the tassels on her hat. I added a border punch, ribbon, and a little snowflake charm, hung on jump rings. I highlighted a few of the snowflakes on the paper with rhinestones. The sweet sentiment, included in the set, is accented with a heart button.

I duplicated the stamp on the card, but cut it out in a circle to fit the box. I have to say I love how this little box came out. The box is just a paper box that cost $1.00. Then I painted wooden knobs and attached them to the bottom of the box. I painted the top, and added chipboard snowflakes and a heart shaped rhinestone.
Here is how it looks from the top.

Now it time to hop on over to Kathy's blog. I am sure she has something wonderful to look at!

THANKS SO MUCH,
Melody
