Fun In The Sun!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Sunday! Sigh...I LOVE three day weekends!!!

I have had a bit of stampy time this weekend (yeah!!!), so I thought I would have some fun and play along with the June 2010 MFT Guest Designer Contest!

This month's theme is Some Like It Hot, and this card was swimming around in my head all night! I couldn't wait to get up and create it!!

For my card, I knew I wanted to use some the AWESOME new Cork from MFT (which I would bet is quite a "hot" product!!) as the sand in my beach scene. I simply cut a bit of a "wavy" piece of cork to look like sand dunes.

The patterned paper is all from Love Me Do by My Minds Eye. I LOVE the cloudy background and knew I wanted to use it on my card. After assembling the background of my scene, I stamped this DARLING PI girl from Beach Bum from MFT in Mememto Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar Crest White and colored her with Copic Markers. I also stamped the bucket, shovel and flag the same way, and using my Copic Multi Liner, I made the flag an American Flag in honor of Memorial Day.

I stamped (and this is my favorite part!!), the sand castle from Beach Bum in Memento Tuxedo Black onto the Cork and cut it out. I LOVE how cute it is!!! I cut out all of the images and arranged them on my scene. I paper pieced the bathing suit with the same Love Me Do pattern I used on my card. All the images were popped up with Foam Tape, and the sentiment, "fun in the sun" is also from Beach Bum and I created a little tag and attached it with a button. I finished off my card by sewing each of the panels on my sewing machine.

Thanks SO much for stopping by! I hope you like my HOT MFT card!!
