Hope Your Holiday is Frosty and Sweet!
Ha... I totally love the sentiments in this new set from Stampendous. I know it's hard to see in the photo, but on the tin window stamped in White Stazon, it says, "Hope Your Holiday is Frosty and Sweet!" Frosty and sweet... indeed.
This set is brand new, and you can only get it from eP. It's called Merry Muffins and it's SO cute! Today! You can get it today! Oh, Fridays are indeed awesome aren't they?
I think I will add some chocolate, covered with matching designer paper and also make a matching designer paper gift certificate holder. Sorry I didn't get it all done, but you get the picture.
The side of the tin is all glitterfied with Celery Chunky Glitter from Stampin' Up! I used my favorite Scor-Tape to make it sick. The paper on the bottom inside is from Heidi Grace (Jolly and Bright) and the paper on the outside is from a 8x8 stack my Aunt shared with me called Rose Colored Glasses (GCD). The paper on the clipboard is also from the Jolly & Bright line. Can you see the little charm? Yep.... I got out my shrinky dinks! I totally forgot how much fun it is to shrink up charms. I used Black Stazon and colored with the atyou Spica Glitter pens. OMGosh... when it shrunk up, it turned even more sparkly! I LOVE those pens! I punched the hole with my crop-a-dile, then stuck my stylus in the hole to hold it still while I zapped it with my embossing gun. It shrinks all up and you think it's stuck in ball... but just keep that gun going and it will straighten out and end up perfect!
This will be such a fun gift to give and you can put a ton of different goodies in there. You can see in the photo the Shimmerz Glitter Paint I used. This color is called Bubble Gum Pink. I used the Royal Red on the cherry, then added Glossy Accents to the top so it stands out. The cool sparkly dot line stickers are from Stampendous too.... the shine is unbelievable and the silver really makes the tin gorgeous!
How did I get the image stuck to the front you ask? Back when I was a guest designer for Gina K., she sent the design team these cool labels. I'm not sure what the material is, but it's awesome. After you stamp and color, it's permanent. You can even run water over it and nothing will smear. I used one of the labels, then cut the image out, then peeled the back off and stuck it down. Easy peasy and it looks perfect from the backside too.
