Thinking of You!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

MFT is super excited to announce that Wednesday Stamp Club will now be centered around a weekly sketch. We know your stamping time is precious, and we want you to maintain as much creative freedom as possible. Sketches are the perfect starting point to a card. Use it as a blueprint, and create a card using the stamp set and supplies that strike your fancy. You can turn to the sketches time and again for creative inspiration.

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. All you need to do to enter, is upload your card to the gallery at SCS, and enter 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.

Here is my card for the first sketch, MFTWSC1! I used the GORGEOUS new Pure Innocence Because of You, which was released last night!

I colored her with Copic Markers and paper pieced her little sweater with the same paper I used on my card, Modern Homemaker from October Afternoon. Not sure if you can tell, but I am obsessed with Die-Namics (grin!), and used a bunch on this card. The Die-Namics Button Quartet may just be my favorite!

I finished off the inside of my card with the same paper, a different border die, this time using the Die-Namics Little Open Scallop Strip, and another sentiment from Pure Innocence Because You're Special. I added tons of stitching to this card...it makes me happy!



Thanks SO much for stopping by!! We hope you'll play along!
