Shop Hop with MFT

Tonight's the night!!! My Favorite Things release night! Hopefully you've been hanging out in the forum, and having fun with us. If not, that's okay, cuz you found your way here. Be sure to start the blog hop back at Kim's blog so you don't miss out on all the details and great projects by each of the DT members. If you've come from Michelle's blog, you in the right place.
I was so honored to be this month's guest designer. Thanks for all your support and kind words. I'm so glad I discovered MFT stamps,! The products, the company, and all the friends I've made because of this company just make me happy!
Here's what I've got for you tonight! Of course I'm showcasing my favorite line by MFT-Pure Innocence. I told you the other day just how tickled I was when I saw Kim added this sweet little guy to the line up. Snatch him up quick, the PI stamps always fly off the shelf.

I knew right away I wanted to add him to a tin and store our hot cocoa in it (he's much cuter than the Swiss Miss canister from the grocery!). We got our first snow the other day and are expected to get another 4-6 inches tomorrow. The boys are having a blast playing outside and I always have a cup of cocoa waiting for them when they come in.

I used one of these tins and covered it with some retired SU dp. I stamped the Snow Adorable image on a white perfect panel and colored him with copics. I then created a tag,stitched around the image, and added the sentiment (it's one of 2 that comes with the set). I finished off the tin by stamping the letters to spell out cocoa with the Alphadots stamp set and did up the top of the tin. The letters were punched with my 1/2 circle punch.

Totally switching gears, from snow to rain.....I have one more card to share and it's done with the Umbrella girl Pure Innocence image. It's pretty simple with a little paper piecing and the addition of some glittered garnishes ( I used the Spring collection) to the centers of the flowers.

Okay, so enough babble from me. Off you go to the uber talented, Melody! and when your done, or maybe before your done, be sure to head over to the store and get your order in! Many hugs, Lisa

  21. Adorable!! We're looking forward to the snow (and consequently the hot chocolate) today! Yesterday my kiddos bundled up and walked to the woods (with their BB guns of course) and a while later DD called, almost in tears, asking me to come pick them up, she was freezing. I had to bundle up myself and nearly threw my back out trying to heave up our barn door to get the 4-wheeler out. By the time I got the darn thing running they were almost home. One in tears though! I don't think she'll be doing that again anytime soon.

    Anyway, I adore your rainy card too- the colors and your design are top notch! So going in my "cards to CASE" file! Love it!
