MFP OCT Blog Hop-Day 1-"Holly Greetings"


Hello! Welcome to the October 2011 MFP New Releases Blog Hop! 


Today's Featured set is

"Holly Greetings"

and below is my sample for you:


Supplies:
MFP stamp set "Holly Greetings"
Spellbinders "Large Scalloped Octagons"
Crystal Lacquer by Sakura
Embossing folder by Provo Craft "Herringbone"
Copic markers
pop dots

After airbrushing the Spellbinder diecut I stamped greeting and applied 
crystal lacquer over colored circles to imitate more holly berries.
Fussy cut holly stamps for corners and put more lacquer on the berries 
with a 5th holly "corner" popped up
beside focal image.
**this stamp would make a great custom frame by stamping
it repeatedly around a masked shape**

Thanks so much for stopping by today and be sure to come back tomorrow!!
Connie
