Warm Wishes

There's a stamp and die set from My Favorite Things that I purchased as soon as it came out.  I don't do that often.  Although you couldn't tell it by looking at my craft corner, I am actually fairly frugal.  I tend to put things on wishlists and if I still want them in a few weeks, or even years, I get them then.  Here's the sad ending - the stamps and dies went into my unused Christmas stash and disappeared until last week - I pulled them out to make this card and it turns out they have already retired!!

Warm Wishes

I wanted to add "warm" colors and went with orange with kraft in the background..  I love the contrast of oranges and blues - especially aquas - so I went with this unusual combination for Christmas.

Now I've used the mug and mittens twice.  I really should use the other stamps!!  I'm feeling a poinsettia card coming!!


Stamps: My Favorite Things (MFT) Winter Warmth, Hand-Lettered Holiday, Diagonal Stripes Background
Dies: MFT Cross Stitch Rectangle, Winter Warmth dies
Ink: MFT Orange Fizz, Orange Zest, Blue Raspberry, Chocolate Brown, Versamark
Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh Holiday Snowflake Mix and Sparkling Clear Snowflakes

I also have this set and I have never inked it up! Like you, I bought it right away. On my list to do something before December ends.

Meant to add: I really like your card - love the colors!

Interesting color combo—yet they go together to creat a colorful, happy card.

Love this!!!

This card just popped up on my pinterest, and I had to go look, because I was thinking, how have I not pinned it yet! It's one of my favorites and I too "had to have it". I am sad that it's retired- which is why I was so excited to see such a lovely (and newly made!!!) card with it!
