Hello. :) It’s time for Wednesday Stamp Club with My Favorite Things. As I did a couple weeks ago, I made two cards. The first one I didn’t (don’t) really like, but I’ll show it to you anyway…after the one I (kind of) do like.
It’s been a bad week for mojo.
For my first card, I turned the rectangular box on the sketch into a birdhouse and the vertical strip into a tree.
Hey Sweet Stuff
(I made the picture smaller because I don’t like the card. I thought about “thumbnail sizing it” but I didn’t want to be TOO negative. However, if you click on the scary picture, you can see it larger and more clearly.)
I used the super-fun new Sassy & Sweet set. I felt like the sentiment panel was too much empty white(ish) color so I stamped a few flourishes around the edges. Then I decided that still wasn’t enough so I added the rhinestone flourish. Now, it’s too much. **shrugging**
To create the rosette, I used MFT’s 1/4″ Rosette Die-namics. (I am seriously rosette-challenged so please don’t look to0 closely.) I tried layering two different patterns. I had pieces popping up and flopping around all over the place. It just was not a good day for rosettes.
On the inside I stamped a sentiment from Polka Dot Greetings. (I like the inside better than the outside. It’s not so busy.)
SO….if you’ve made it through all of THAT, here’s what you need to know about Wednesday Stamp Club.
You can find direct links to more DT samples HERE on the MFT Blog. The info is also posted in the MFT forum on SCS. (Look for the most recent WSC thread numbered 10). And remember, if you upload your card in the SCS gallery using the keyword shown on the sketch, you will have the chance to win up to $20 in MFT money! One winner is chosen at random each week.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
