MFTWSC99- You Shine

Hey everyone, and happy Wednesday!! That means it is time for another Wednesday Stamp Club challenge from My Favorite Things! It's MY favorite sketch challenge.

For my card today, I used the new a la mode-You Shine stamp set. She was stamped on X-Press It blending card, and then I colored it with my Copics. Her shirt was paper pieced with some Lilybee Designs Christmas Cheer paper pad. My cardstock colors are Wild Cherry, Sour Apple, Berrylicious, and Sweet Tooth. For embellishment's, I used Wild Cherry Grosgrain, Michael's brads, and a creative express spiral clip. The Oval Tab Die-namics was used for my sentiment, and I used the Scallop Ribbon Die-namics for my scalloped panel.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:

Snow Globe Blog Hop Challenge

Our second day of our regular release Blog Hop Challenges at There She Goes, and today is EXTRA special!! 

I told you yesterday that you had to wait until today to see WHY the new Holiday Cheer set was so versatile…well, wait no more! Not only is it a set that stands alone, the SUPER cute images were designed to fit into today’s set, Snow Globe! Along with a matching die, Torico has really out done herself!!

Snow Globe and Die is a 3x4 set that includes a total of 4 stamps and will sell for $28!

For my card tonight, I paired the new Snow Globe and Die-namics with yesterday's peeked set, Holiday Cheer. I stamped the globe and image on X-Press It blending card, and then colored it with my Copics. My snow globe was also stamped on Fossil cardstock, and just the base was cut out. I added some shading, and some hemp cord around the base. On my snow, and Santa's hat, I used the Sakura White Glaze pen. My paper is from the Basic Grey Aspen Frost paper pad, and I paired it with Wild Cherry, Jellybean Green, and Fossil card stock. The snowflake's I used were made with the MFT Let It Snowflake Die-namics, and I used Michael's brads as well.

Would you like to win the new Snow Globe and Die set? Here is what you need to do-visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post.

You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday, November 24th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.
