A little bit jaunty and a lot bit jolly — here comes Santa Claus and after a year of rest, he’s ready for action! Choose from a sack-bearing Santa, present-piling Santa, or Santa-in flight and then complete the scene with accessory images like a stack of gifts and a cozy little elf hut. And we all know old St. Nick would be lost without his trusty reindeer so we’ve included one of those as well.

Add Depth and Texture with Speedy Watercolor Washes of Color

Yesterday Jessie shared a pretty watercolored scene featuring a delightful die cut and softly-colored background. Today, she’s brought back the loose background color but paired it with some high-contrast coloring.

The whimsical Cool Christmas images steal the show…maintaining a clean and simple background keeps the focus squarely on this adventurous snowman clan. The blocky sentiments included in the stamp set are simple but packed with personality — Jessie used hers to ground her frosty family as they whoosh their way to a holiday gathering.

Pretty layers of color act as a subtle backdrop, adding texture and depth in mimicking a crisp winter sky. This technique is a great starting point for a novice painter but one that can be expanded upon as your confidence and experience grow.

Big thanks to Jessie for joining us this month, sharing her ideas, and leading us into our November Countdown that starts tomorrow. We can’t wait to unveil another festive release so make sure you stop by tomorrow for the first of our countdown posts.

Sales like this don’t happen often. HUGE discounts, no coupon needed (stack your savings by applying one of our Shop to Save Discounts!), plus FREE shipping on qualifying orders, and a Free Die-namics with each order of $60 or more — what a deal! Don’t wait long to fill your bag though. With prices like this, these items will go quick. Browse the MFT Sidewalk Sale HERE.


Jessie Banks always brings the color to her stamped images, but today, she’s joining us here on the blog to share something a little bit different. Color still plays a major part in her look but this time, it’s softer, looser, and the result of lots of experimentation and play.

Die-cut elements provide the perfect opportunity to try your hand at watercolor. When you’re simply creating swaths of color, adding depth and texture to an element without concerning yourself with “staying in the lines,” you have much more freedom to hone your skills and practice your technique.

With the initial plan to create a snowy winter scene, from conception to execution, this card was quite the journey. Jessie’s documented her thought process, coloring, and assembly in a video today — be sure to check it out to see how she adapted and overcame challenges to create the charming finished look you see here!

Big thanks to Jessie for joining us today! She’ll be back again tomorrow with another look so make sure you check in to see what she’s done. And if she’s inspired you to do some watercolor yourself, tag #mftstamps when you upload your projects so we can check them out.

Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly in This Week’s MFTv

A Christmas tree branch evokes so many holidays feelings. It conjures memories of hanging favorite keepsake ornaments on the tree, immediately brings to mind that unmistakable piney scent, and helps us envision a home adorned for the holidays. Stephanie wanted to recreate that feeling for this week’s card, and despite not having the perfect stamp image for the branch she visualized, she’s managed to bring her vision to life anyway.

Handmade card from Stephanie Klauck featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Improvisational crafting sometimes produces the best possible outcome — this tree bough Stephanie created with a simple bit of greenery proves that. Don’t be limited by what you *think* you have…you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what you can create with what you have on hand.
