Last month My Favorite Things introduced a new line of stamps called "Pure Innocence" by Heather Ellis. They were an instant hit with me and with all the other MFT junkies. Well, I predict that this month's release of PI stamps are going to be equally well received and I recommend that you be ready to shop as soon as the releases go on sale on Wednesday night. That way you will have plenty of time to whip up some Christmas cards with the ever adorable "Merry KISSmas" set you see being used here.
This month there are four new PI sets. If you didn't get here from Kim's blog then when you're done here click on the link and head on over there. Everyday during the sneak peeks, at 11:00 AM Kim will post a list of links to all the sites that have sneak peeks and if you visit everyone you are likely to see all four of the sets.
For both cards I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with copics. On the first card I paper pieced PI's jacket and scarf with a scrap of Making Memories "Meg Narrow Stripe" dp. I used a strip of that paper on the inside of the card too. The edge of the paper is sponged with VersaMagic "Spring Pansy". The cs mat and card base are from SU. The dp is Basic Grey's Wassail, on top of that there's some purple mesh from SU (thank you to good buddy Eileen for that gift which looks so cute here). On top of that there's snowflake ribbon, one of them is in the upper right corner too. The felt snowflakes are from Creative Impressions. There's Glitzy Glitter on the snowman for highlights. His nose and buttons are stickles, so are the red berries and the pompoms on PI's hat. The white mat on the inside is punched with the EK Success Snowflake border punch.
For the second card I went a little more country looking by distressing it. I haven't been doing much of that lately and I miss it. I know a lot of stampers have a hard time ripping and tearing their beautiful papers but once you try it, it becomes sort of therapeutic. Besides roughing up the edges they are sponged with a blue ink, but I forgot to write down what color is is, it's very similar to the color of the scalloped mat which is from DCWV neutrals. The oval and scalloped oval were punched out with Spellbinder's Nestibilities, the ribbon slider is also from Spellbinders. The green cs is from DCWV neutrals too. There are stickles on the pompoms, the berries, the snowman's nose and buttons and there's Glitzy Glitter on his edges. The snowflake dp is from My Mind's Eye Christmas pad. The snowflake bling in the upper right corner is from Hero Arts.
