I saw the funniest thing photo on Facebook the other day, it was a little sign outside a liquor store which read: “Be sure to buy Mom a bottle, after all you’re the reason she drinks!” This totally cracked me up, but it also sparked a little project idea. I pulled out my Let’s Toast stamp and Die-namics and got to work. I love being able to dress up a little gift to create something personalized with all the crafty materials I already have on hand.
So, in today’s feature Friday Video I’ll show you how to create a frame using the STAX Die-namics, and how to assemble our Cupped Flower style Die-namics. In this case, I’m using the Fringed Perennial Die-namics and I’ve added on the new Royal Leaves Die-namics.
For nice bold sentiments like this, I really prefer using Brilliance Ink. It has a nice even coverage, and dries so nicely. Yes, it will take a moment to dry fully and, yesyou’ll have to be careful not to smudge the still drying ink…. But its all worth it when it covers so richly like this.
For today’s video, I did all my stamping and Die-cutting in advance so you can see how all the elements come together. Pattern papers are from My Mind’s Eye – Indie Chic. Remember, you can find LOTS of product videos on the MFT YouTube Channel.
Here’s the products used in today’s video:
At last, here’s a finished photo of my project today. A great little decoration for a bottle of white or red for Mother’s Day, a hostess gift, or if wine’s not your thing, you could even dress up a bottle of artisan water! You’ll find the stamps and Die-namics used today in the MFT Boutique.
