You're Such A Smartie!

Hi everyone!! Happy Wednesday! Are you ready for another MFT Sketch Challenge? It's another amazing sketch!


Isn't this a FAB sketch? I had SO much fun with this one and plan on using this layout lots more!!! I knew I wanted to create a bright, fun card this week, and I started with the sweet Pure Innocence Emma With Her Backpack! I just LOVE this little cutie! I have all the Emma's in my stamp collection...they make me happy :)

I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X Press It Blending Card (sigh...LOVE this paper for use with my Copics) and colored her with Copic Markers. All of the patterned paper is from Campfire from October Afternoon, and I used a bit to paper piece her skirt too! Super fun!

I added some die cut stars, cut from both cardstock and patterned paper with the Die-Namics Stacking Stars Die. I LOVE these stars...like, totally LOVE them! I added some brads and cheated a bit and put my sentiment down low so it would fit on my card. I love the sentiment, "You're Such A Smartie".


I finished off the inside of my card as well, as I really wanted to use another sentiment from this set, "Have an Extra-ordinary Day At School". I added some more stars as well as a border cut with the Die-Namics Notebook Edge Die!






Make sure to head on over to Kim's Blog for a list of the participants today from the MFT Challenge Team and the MFT Design Team (seriously...still can't believe I am part of this amazing team!).

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.

Thanks SO much for stopping by!! We are expected to get a whopper of a blizzard today....which means a day off from work and time to stamp! WOOT!
