MFT Product Tour Time!!!

Hello MFTers!  I hope that you are enjoying the Product Tour!  For a full listing of participants, go to Kim's Blog!

Today, I am focusing on my little cutie, the Pure Innocence Heartwarmer!  I wanted to come up w/ a clever idea of what I could do with him and his snowballs (thought of stamping a PI buddy and having a good, old fashioned snowball fight), but, I wasn't sure how well it would photograph.  I might try that at some point....
I went onto Pinterest, and saw a cute idea of a snowman inside a jar!  And then I got my idea!
A Snowball Fight In A Jar!

 I used a regular mason jar that I found in my laundry room.  I painted the lid white, and adhered the silver ribbon that you see that's kind of frilly and wild and crazy.  I used the Fancy Flourish and Let It Snowflake die-namics to create my scene.  Along w/ the Wonky Scallop Border.  The Fancy Flourish is to mimic wind and on the wind are snowflakes falling onto the snow already piling up at the feet of our little Heartwarmer!  The rhinestones are the sparkly snowflakes falling even faster than the regular flakes!  All you see are the flashes and sparkle as they fall from the sky!  I used my brand new Icicles Border Die for the top to add some detail and make it look even colder!!!!

Inside you will see 2 white circle punches.  These are to signify snowballs.  I took white liquid paint, and mixed it w/ water, and sprayed the inside of the jar to make it look like the jar got hit w/ snowballs.  Of course, my camera couldn't pick up that detail.  But, in real life, it's speckled under the snowballs!  There's one to the upper right of the Heartwarmer, and then behind him to the Left.  You can see it in the next picture.


 This is just a different angle of the jar.
This is what the jar looks like on my hutch in my kitchen!  I used fresh pine all throughout my house this year for Christmas, and I LOVE how it turned out!  This is just one of my shelves!

Happy Shopping my friends!
