The Paper Players: Warm & Cozy

I have a die set that's been in my stash forever that's just perfect for the current challenge at The Paper Players.  It's from My Favorite Things - the gloves and the mug.  (It's actually two sets, the smaller one was a stand-alone set and the larger sized dies - used to cut the white around the patterned paper  - actually coordinate with a stamp set - which is still sitting in my unused stash.)    Sadly, you might have noticed the word "was".  The stamps and the dies have been in my unused stash for so long, they actually are retired. 

TPP Warm Wishes

You can see that I was totally inspired, right down to the colors and the snowflakes!

The fact that I have unused stash that is so old it's retired seems like it might help my budget this Black Friday morning.  I think every stamp company out there is having a big sale.  I have my cart loaded in multiple places - but I just haven't hit the checkout button.  I love it all - it's all stuff that's been on my wishlist - but I'm feeling this need to just give my unused stuff some love instead of buying more to stack on top of it!!  (And that's not a thought that I've ever had before!!)


Stamps: My Favorite Things (MFT) Hand-Lettered Holiday
Dies: MFT Warm & Cozy dies (frames), Warm & Fuzzy dies (smaller), Rectangle Peek-a-Boo Window
Paper: MFT Trail Mix Paper Pack (the gloves), Dots & Stripes Fresh Paper Pack (the mug)
Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh Holiday Snowflake Mix, Sparkling Clear Snowflakes
