MCS New Stamp Release Party Day #5- Merry & Bright

Hi Everyone! Welcome to day five of My Craft Spot's New Stamp Release Party! This week has been so fun! Tomorrow is the day you have all been waiting for, when all the stamp sets will be released and available for purchase! 
So exciting!! 
Today we are sharing a sneak peek of the new stamp set *Merry & Bright*. Lot's of versatility with this new set. Wonderful sentiments that are sure to make your holiday projects special. 
Here is my project:
I love how this card turned out. As you can probably tell, I'm hooked on the red & aqua color combination for this year's Christmas holiday projects. :) I saw a tutorial on tinting clear acetate with Copic markers-I thought it would be the perfect technique for creating the blue/aqua colored Ball glass jars that I love so much. For this project I used the SU Blendabilities markers-Coastal Cabana. Basically I colored the clear acetate with my marker, made sure it was dry, and then cut out the jar shape from the Jar Basics Metal Die set. Now you can see the flower stems through the jar. I stamped my *Merry Christmas* sentiment from the new *Merry & Bright* stamp set on a tag cut from the Ornate Labels Metal Die set.
I fussy cut flowers that were stamped from the Jar Full Of Flowers stamp set. The red border surrounding my sentiment is from the Ornate Labels-Christmas stamp set. The tied a Solid Red twine bow around the top of the jar. The scalloped trim was cut from one of the Fancy Edges Metal Die set.
