A Very Merry Christmas to You!

It’s time to begin teasers for My Favorite Things‘ November release!  Today we’re sharing samples using Stitched Stockings and Darling Dots from Lisa Johnson Designs.

Also available with the November release are My Favorite Things Wild Cherry and Jelly Bean Green inks!  WOOHOO!  I am SO impressed with these!  Perfectly even coverage providing amazingly solid impressions as well as a perfect match to the Wild Cherry and Jelly Bean Green cardstocks.  I can’t wait for the rest of the colors!

I adore Stitched Stockings!  Such a great assortment of images, sentiments and shapes!

I stamped all images, as well as the Darling Dots background using Wild Cherry ink on MFT’s Kraft cardstock.

I used Stocking Trio Die-namics to die-cut my stamped stockings, cutting two of each and placing foam tape between the layers.  I tied hemp cord around the sponged panel and “hung” my stockings from little loops created from the hemp cord.  A Kraft button was stitched over the little stamped button on each stocking.

On the inside, I stamped “Peace,” “Love” and “Joy” along the bottom edge.

Here are the details about the upcoming release:
