hot chocolate makes everything better


Welcome to the start of the MFT Stamps November Release Countdown! For the next few days we will be sharing projects featuring the new stamps, dies, stencils, and colors that will be releasing this month. You will be able to purchase any of the products you see over the next few days on Tuesday, November 3 at 9 pm Central.

Hot chocolate is one of my love languages. I love hot chocolate. A lot. And while I love it, I might possibly love the giant marshmallows even more. So when I saw Die-namics Hot Cocoa Cups, I was thrilled to see a large marshmallow! 

I stamped my Kraft card stock base with Polka Dot Background using Natural ink. A strip of paper from Dots & Stripes Fresh Paper pack was adhered to the base. The sentiment, from the stamp set, Hug in a Mug, was stamped in Hot Fudge ink. I chose that color to match the hot chocolate in the mug. Awesome detail from Die-namics Hot Cocoa Cups!

The mugs are Electric Red card stock because I have a set of red mugs that are my absolute favorite! Given to me by a former student years ago, they are my favorite color and always warm and brighten my day when I use them.

I added these cool stitch marks using Die-namics Homespun Stitches. These dies are a set of borders that will cut stitches. They will not cut anything away, or create a shape, just the stitches. Check out how great they look! Sewing and I do not get along, so I am pretty excited to have these to be able to create the illusion of stitches!

Visit the MFT Stamps blog for all the information you will need about the upcoming release. That includes product images, product videos, links to the design team projects, and more! Plus, there always seems to be a chance to win!

thanks for stopping by!
