MCT 38th Release Blog Hop: Olaf Candy Holder

by Veronica

The view from my studio window
Welcome to the 38th Release Blog Hop! You've probably arrived here from Kim's blog. If not, you can start this Hop from the beginning at the MCT blog.

Is it cold where you live? I'm in Southeast Michigan and we're experiencing cold temperatures and snow. Now, as a Michigander, I'm no stranger to snow, but mid-November is quite early for us to be having this fluffy stuff. It's going to be a long winter. Thank God we have a snow blower.

Today, I'm showcasing the FREE stamp set (details below), HELLO You.

Since I don't have kids, I don't usually get to join in on the latest kid craze. But when I saw a little Olaf made using punches, I just had to try my hand at making him with MCT dies! Plus, Olaf is my favorite Frozen character. We might might not have kids of our own yet, but we have 11 nieces and nephews to 'borrow' (#12 due in March). We took our 7-year-old niece, Evelyn, to see Frozen when it was in the theaters.

MCT Products Used
Bunch of Fun Circles (belly and feet)
Oh Deer (eyes, nose, buttons and 'hair')
Stitched Decorative Banner (sentiment flag)
Stitched Sweetheart Die (head/cheek layer)
Stitched Lollipop Holder (base layer)
It's A Magical Season (snowy background)
NEW! Stitched Oval Die (head/face layer, mouth and chest)
NEW! HELLO You (sentiment)
*The arms, teeth and eyebrows were hand cut.

This little guy was so much fun to create! I love using products I have and re-imagining them into something new. Now that I think about it, it wasn't snowing yet when I made him. Oh no!!! Did I bring the snow?!?!
