Hi everyone! Welcome to the August VIP hop with My Favorite Things! If you’ve just popped in here, you might want to go back to the beginning with Kim. If you’ve just come from Frances, then you’re right on track.
This month’s kit includes Who’s That Harvest Girl ($15.95), Girly Net Ribbon Collection (two yards each of netted ribbon in Lipstick Red, Cool Green, White Tulle, Sassy Black, Girly Pink–$5.95), five yards 5/8” Black Saddle Stitch Ribbon ($3), Olivia Basic Grey 6×6 patterned paper pad ($6), set of 10 Scalloped A2 Notecards in Black Linen ($4.85), and a Garden Goodness mini stamp set (FREE, $9 value), all for $36. You can find it HERE.
To go along with Who’s That Harvest Girl we have an additional release tonight of a Strawberry Carton and Strawberries Template for $3.95. (I’m sure you’ve seen it along the way in tonight’s hop. It’s SUPER cute!) You can find it in the MFT store HERE.
That’s Just Rotten
I used my favorite sentiment from the set. I love the play on words.
The basket is actually empty, the set coming with several different items with which to fill it. I chose apples. I tried my best to make my apples look somewhat rotten without making them look like a bunch of dark brown blobs. I didn’t want to add too much color though.
Once all of the paper-piecing was in place, I added the stitching and a bit of shading with gray markers.
On the actual stamp, the bottom left corner of the basket is cut straight across, even with the bottom of the image panel. Since I wanted it to extend past the border a bit, I did not ink that corner of the basket (the straight line), stamped, then drew in that corner with a black marker.
For a coordinating finish to the inside, I used the same papers and a “thinking of you” type sentiment (from MFT’s Essential Sentiments set).
Your next stop along the hop is with my sweet friend, JODY. I’m sure she has something amazingly creative to share! (She’s like that.)
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
