MFT - Wednesday Stamp Club

 Good morning all!!  Seriously...such an exciting day!!  Last night I was honored beyond honored to be chosen to be the next Guest Designer for MFT for the next new release in January. You can see my winning project here.  I'm still in shock.  There were so many amazingly beautiful projects that can all be seen here!  I'm crazy excited and LOVE LOVE LOVE working with the amazing artists and wonderful women at MFT

So I'm jumping right in and playing along with this week's sketch which is SUPER fabulous and can translate to many different styles.
It can be flipped or flopped or twisted about!  You choose!  Here's how I chose to interpret this design:
I used papers from Basic Grey, Crate, and SU! as well as some from my stash and a few pieces that a friend sent me recently.  I reached for my First Class Friend stamp and die set. The reason I am differentiating that I used the stamp and die set is because those smart SMART lovlies at MFT are now selling the dies separately!  It's so fabulous whether you simply want the dies sans stamps or if you need an extra die to add to your collection!  The option is amazing.  SWOON!!

I stamped HUGS, KISSES and STAMP OF APPROVAL using SU! ink, my XO is stamped with Colorbox ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder.  I added a bit of red ribbon before I adhered my postage frame and in lieu of the three elements I added an owl clip tied with a simple twine bow.  I used a teeny dot of Glossy Accents on the knot of the bow to keep it stable.
To add extra detail to my interior, I've used my snowflake stitch on my sewing machine.  I added a rhinestone flourish over my sentiment layer and left a bit of space for a handwritten message.

I do hope you come play along with us over at the forum on SCS!!  It's right here!!  Come KNOW you want to play!!  =)

Congratulations! I love the rainbow colour tags project. Reminds me of the Cat and the Hat rainbow song.

Love your card for the sketch. Where you moved the brads is perfect. The inside is very yummy. How cool is that snowflake stitch, LOVE IT, my machine will NOT do that.
