December Product Tour!!

Hey everyone, it's finally here!!! Tonight is the November My Favorite Things New Release!! You have (not so, lol)patiently waited through all 7 days of teasers, and now it is FINALLY time to SHOP!! But before you do that, it is time for this month's New Product Tour! We are no longer having blog hops, but all the designers are working SO hard to show you all the sets being released tonight, so be sure to head to Kim's Blog for a list of who, what, and where!!

Tonight, my job is to show you the new Pure Innocence Good Fortune set...possibly my most FAVORITE yet!! I spent 5yrs on Okinawa with my family(Dad was in the Army), and I used to do home exchanges through the girl scouts there. Some of my most fond memories from living there, are going on these home visits, going to the Japanese festivals, and being dressed in a kimono...those things are HARD to walk in, and don't get me started on those un-comfy wooden shoes!!

For my card tonight, I started by stamping my girl on X-Press It Blending card, and some MME Sunshine paper. I paper pieced her kimono, and colored the rest with my Copics. My card stock colors are Black Licorice, Fossil, and So Saffron. I cut my flower out with the new Fringed Perennial Die-namics. I used the Double Scalloped Border Die-namics for my scallops, and the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics for my sentiment. My ribbon is Black Seam Binding from the Ribbon Carousel. My brads are from Michael's.

For the inside of my card, I used more of the same supplies, and another sentiment from this set.

This little cutie pie sells for $9.

Here are the Die-namics I used:

The Cherry on Top is earned when you spend $150 before shipping and tax, earning you $15 off your order. Once that amount is hit, the coupon code will pop up on your screen, which you can write down and then apply to your order in your shopping cart. If you remove things from your cart, making it fall below $150, the coupon code will be removed automatically.

Also, remember that SOMEONE out there is giving out blog candy, and the BEST way to win, is to comment on ALL the designers blogs!! Good luck!!

Now, off to Kim's Blog for a full list of designer's participating!! Happy Stamping!!

For my card tonight, I started out with the Ribbon Carousel challenge. This week's challenge is a GORGEOUS set of pictures that my DT mate, Wendy, got off of Etsy. The theme was "peppermint", so I went with it!! I started by stamping my girl, from the new a la modes- Cocoa Cutie, on X-Press It Blending card and some Be Merry MME paper, and then paper pieced and colored her with my Copics. She was then layered with Bubblegum, Wild Cherry, and Fossil. I also used Sweet Tooth. My ribbon is Satin Edged Grosgrain from the Ribbon Carousel, and I also used Maraschino and Blossom Twine. My brads are from Michael's, and my buttons are from SU. I used the NEW Oval Open Scalloped Doily Die-namics for my background, and the Mini Tabs Die-namics for my sentiment. As an added embellishment, I used the Always Time For Tea Die-namics, and cut out a cup and spoon. For a little bit of fun, I did add some White Liquid Applique to my marshmallows, to make them PUFFY!!

For the inside, I used another sentiment from that set, and some more of the paper. I also used the By the Letters Die-namics to spell out hot cocoa....which is totally making me want some, lol.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:

Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to check out Kim's Blog to see which other designers are participating in today's teasers.
