MFT Wednesday Stamp Club 172

Welcome to the current Wednesday Stamp Club sketch post with My Favorite Things! You'll find complete WSC challenge details along with the original sketch over at the MFT Blog, AND direct links to everyone playing along, which equals inspiration avenue!

I took the opportunity to use a few leftover scraps that were just lying around (on, under, behind, etc.) my stamping 'area', and put them together to come up with a Sex in the City meets Heart of Texas type Christmas card, ha! I know - perfect timing for a Christmas card when Easter is three days away!

The cityscape is from the latest and greatest You're Super, and the sentiment is from a tried and true Seasonal Sentiments.

I added a bit of texture embossing the Green Gumdrop layer with Stencil Stripes, and then finished it off with Primitive White stars from Centerpieces Congratulations Shaker and Sun, Moon & Stars Die-namics.

The inside uses more elements of Sun, Moon & Stars, along with another cityscape in Electric Red ink on Red Hot card stock.

Please look to the bottom of this post for a complete list of MFT products used on today's card. I hope you get a chance to play along with this week's sketch for your chance to win a voucher for the MFT store.

MFT Release Rewind - shakin' it up!

Welcome to MFT Release Rewind - Day 2! I hope to inspire you with more ideas for those goodies you've purchased and are patiently waiting to be delivered, or to help you finish up your shopping if you're still on the fence.  Direct links to all products used on my cards can be found at the bottom of this post for your shopping convenience.

Both of today's card use the Centerpieces Congratulations Shaker Die-namics from which I've created two totally different shaker cards. Take a look!

First up is the Baby's Bib Die-namics with that sweet little ducky from the Die-namics Oh Baby.

That sweet little ducky is floating in 'bubbles' made from the circle confetti die of the Die-namics Centerpieces Congratulations in Blu Raspberry and Sno Cone card stock. To make the Banana Split safety pin look even more realistic, I snipped out a portion of the left side, making it appear to go through the bib.

Inside, I've stamped a sentiment from Beautiful Baby in Sweet tooth ink on a Blu Rasberry Stitched Circle STAX to match the stitched edge of the bib.

My second card again features the Die-namics Centerpieces Congratulations, but this time in the form of a Christmas card, ho ho ho!

I've used 2 of the confetti elements of Die-namics Centerpieces Congratulations for my shaker - circles and stars in silver and vellum card stock to coordinate with my silver embossed Star Background. I've also used the new TRANSFORM-ables Say Hello as my shaker opening and love that it leaves such a nice size opening for all that shakin'!

MFT New Product Launch - Star Background

Welcome to the New Product Launch with My Favorite Things! All products from this release are NOW AVAILABLE for purchase at the MFT Store. Check out the click-n-shop links at the bottom of this post for your shopping convenience.

I have three cards to share with you tonight featuring Star Background, a must-have backgrounder in your stamping arsenal. Think Christmas, Halloween, July 4th, babies and super heroes!

Speaking of super heroes, I've got a fun 'super baby' card up first using Star Background in combination with Oh Baby Die-namics and You're Super Die-namics. I hope this one puts a smile on your face!

I started with a Blu Raspberry A2 card base and stamped it with Star Background in Sweet Tooth ink and then let the layering fun begin, starting with a Starry Night Stencil embossed diaper held together with Lemon Drop tabs and a Night of Navy badge from You're Super.

Inside is a strip of collage background stamping using You're Super.

Second up is another baby card using Star Background stamped in Grout Gray on the Baby's Bib Die-namics.

The Sun, Moon & Stars Die-namics coordinates perfectly with Star Background to create a dreamy little bib for baby. I borrowed the button from Blueprints 14 to finish off the bib closure and trimmed the Kraft card base with a strip of Sno Cone card stock using the Starry Night Stencil to add embossing.

Inside is another matching strip of embossed Sno Cone, Banana Split stars and a sentiment from Beautiful Baby in Sweet Tooth ink. I used the stitched edge of the Blueprints 14 square to die cut the top edge of the Sno Cone layer to coordinate with the stitched edge of the bib.

My third card tonight uses the Star Background stamp in a patriotic way with Red Hot stripes, Nightshift Blue, and a gold embossed sentiment from Happy Graduation.

The embossed stars and sentiment give this card a nice, crisp finish. The single Red Hot star is die cut from Sun, Moon & Stars Die-namics.

Inside is a simply stamped sentiment, also from Happy Graduation in Sweet Tooth ink.

And there you have another look at Star Background now available at My Favorite Things! Before you go: MFT is generously awarding two $100 gift vouchers to be chosen at random. Simply leave a comment by the end of the day on Thursday, April 10th for your chance to WIN!
