MFT is Getting Sketchy!

**Please press Ctl-F5 to “hard” refresh if you’d like to make sure you are seeing my latest post.  Thanks!**

MFT is super excited to announce that Wednesday Stamp Club will now be centered around a weekly sketch.  If you’re like me, sketches are major time-savers.  I can color my image, choose the papers and embellishments, and then spend two days trying to decide what to do with everything.  I LOVE sketches. 

A new sketch will be posted each Wednesday at midnight on the MFT blog.  You’ll also find the sketch in the MFT forum on SCS on Wednesday morning, as well as in the weekly newsletter.  Our talented Challenge and Design Teams will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

We encourage you all to play along, and to enter your card in the weekly draw for a $15 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique.  Simply follow the sketch and create a card or other paper creation.  You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish.  Each week, a keyword is assigned to the sketch.  To enter, simply upload your card to the gallery at SCS and include the given keyword in the “keyword” box during the upload process.  After the deadline, we randomly choose a winner from that week’s entries and the winner will receive a $15 gift voucher.  If the winning card uses MFT stamps, the participant will earn a $5 bonus, for a total of a $20 gift voucher!  That is up to $100 per month in prizes, JUST for playing along.  We hope you’ll join us in 2011.

Thinking of You

For this week’s sketch, I used one of our new Pure Innocence releases, Thinking of You.  Along the top I placed two die-cut strips of striped paper, cut using MFT’s Jumbo Scallop Die-namics.   I layered and stitched a strip of red patterned paper then tied the twill.  …It’s like aJoannecard.  (I always love her bows.)

I colored with markers and paper-pieced her little dress and jacket.  (You wouldn’t believe the small pieces I used for that. Luckily I had saved them because my papers from Cosmo’s Togetherness paper pad are seriously dwindling.)

On the inside, I used a second sentiment from the set and stamped the girl using Memento Desert Sand.

You can find a complete list of sketch details and MFT participants HERE on Kim’s blog.  I hope you’ll play along!
