MFT January Release Countdown--Day 5

Hello, Happy New Year, and welcome to My Favorite Things January Release Countdown!

Did you check out this post over at My Favorite Things? I'm excited to be back on the
Creative Team for another term, and doubly excited that some new designers have
joined the team! It's going to be a great year.

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and we're featuring new stamps, dies,
patterned papers, inks, and card stock, plus tons of inspiration from the design team.

I'm sharing MFT's newest member of the STAX family--Wonky Stitched Dienamics in
four shapes: rectangle, square, circle, and oval. They are so much fun, and add a touch
of whimsy to your cards and projects.

I used the smaller size from each set and made little lunch box notes. The images are
from Lisa Johnson's All Heart stamp set, stamped with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink,
then colored with Zig Markers and a waterbrush.

It's hard to capture on camera, but I added a bit of clear Wink of Stella to the hearts
and made them all sparkly as the sentiment says.

I adhered one of the notes to the next larger size rectangle for a bigger note card
so you could include a little handwritten note. I love the detail of the wonky
stitching--it's like sewing the edges without pulling out your sewing machine!

Be sure to stop by today's countdown post at the MFT blog for links to participating
designers and leave a comment there for your chance to win prizes.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and hope to see you tomorrow!
