We've teased and tempted you all week, and it is ALMOST time for the New Release at My Favorite Things. And I do mean *nearly* - today we have our Pre-Release Pep Rally and then tonight at 10pm EST the new stamps and Die-namics will be available for sale.
I hadn't had a chance to use the new Jumbo Stocking Die-namics, let me say there are SO many spectacular Die-namics this month. I had cut a mini one out of burlap on Day One of teasers, but I loved it so much, I wanted to make another jumbo burlap one.
This Die-namics is large enough that you could hang it as a Christmas ornament, or add it to a piece of home decor. Today I'm using it on a gift bag. I like to keep a healthy stash of alterable bags from Michael's so that I can easily pull together a quick bag wrap. I've been on a Christmas tag binge lately, but gift bags will be equally handy in the next few weeks.
I opted to cut the holly leaf twice, and instead of the holly berries included in the die set. I used one of the new Paver Red buttons with a length of Hemp Cord. The cuff of the stocking was cut from Sweet Tooth Felt.
If you have a Vagabond, you'll easily be able to cut burlap by adding the Metal Adaptor Plate and a cardstock shim. If you don't happen to have a Vagabond, you can find some tips on cutting fabric or burlap with your Die-namics in this quick video I'd written a few months ago.
Pretty soon the Seasonal Sentiments Stamp Set will be available for individual purchase. If you didn't earn it already as part of the Triple Scoop Rewards program, you'll really want to pick it up come Tuesday night. It is loaded with beautiful holiday sentiments that you'll certainly be able to use over the next few weeks!
Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog today for a full list of designers with samples to share! I look forward to chatting with you tonight at the New Release Party HERE on the MFT Forum.
