Hello, Hello {and Blog Candy}!

Hi everyone!! Happy Friday! 

I LOVE Fridays...the end of the work week is SUCH a delight in my world!  Plus, today is my anniversary, so Happy Anniversary to my fabulous hubby!!

Today I have a card to share with you that I created following the FABULOUS sketch that is the current MFT Guest Designer Contest Sketch!  YAY!   You can get ALL the deets on the contest right HERE!  We'd love you to play along...as many times as you'd like!  Everyone loves a sketch AND some new MFT right?

So, I LOVE this sketch.  Seriously, LOVE it!  I've inked up the ADORABLE Pure Innocence Freckles from My Favorite Things, and I stamped her onto X Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers.  I paper pieced her shirt, pockets and leggings with the same papers I've used on my card, Indie Chic Nutmeg from My Minds Eye (love).  She is cut out and layered using the Rectangle STAX 1 and Rectangle STAX 2 Die-Namics.

The sentiment, "Hello, Hello" is from the new Pure Innocence All Occassion Sentiments (must have!) and I stamped it onto a panel of Sweet Tooth Cardstock cut with the Mini Tabs Foursome Die-Namics.  The horizontal panels in the sketch were perfect to use the Chevron Stripes Die-Namics, which I love.  The card base is Kraft Cardstock.
 

Using My Favorite Felt in Banana Split, I cut a rose using the Large Rolled Rose Die-Namics, and added it to my card over some Jute Twine.  Here is a closeup of the flower:


And here is a closeup of this little cutie.  LOVE her!


On the inside, I added more patterned paper, along with two more sentiments from Pure Innocence All Occasion Sentiments, "XOXO" and "Hugs".


Here are the Copic Markers I've used on my card:


And here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:






Now...how about some Blog Candy?  I feel like it's been ages since I've done one, and here is what I have for one lucky commenter:

YAY!  I love Blog Candy!  Just leave a comment here and let me know what your favorite MFT product is!  I will choose a winner next Friday, May 18th at midnight EST!  Good luck!!

I am just beginning to collect some MFT stamps and Die-namic dies, but so far my favorite is the Dainty Lace Border, as it's the only one I own at present, it wasn't hard to choose, but hopefully the postman will change that today!

  28. I think I love the MFT stamps the best...WTG and PI always have the right scenario and sentiment. Oh, and of course a la Modes!

    Thanks for the candy!

  29. What a darling card Jodi, I love the colors and the paper piecing! TOo darn cute! I think my favorite item from MFT has evolved as MFT has added to their lines. It used to be WTG, then it changed to flopsey, followed by Joleen, then the PI images (which are all so cute!), but right now it is their Die-Namics! I love them all and there is such a variety to choose from! Thank you Jodi!

  32. How Cute Jodi, Awesome job paper piecing your sweet PI. Love the rolled rose...I have the dies for them, I just don't have the felt.. I must get some...since they are fabulous.... As for my favorite MFT product? I would have to say the dies, since I have much more of them. Every time they come out with new ones, it is hard to keep to a budget... Happy Stamping

  52. Wow....what yummy blog candy....and calorie free makes it even better!!! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!! I absolutely ADORE MFT's dies, but my favorite (and most used) is the rolled rose die!! I have all three sizes and use them so much I'm afraid they're going to break someday! LOL! Maybe I should buy a 2nd set.....anyway.....I love your card! Your REALLY good at showing where the light source is coming from with the shadows on her face, hair, shoes! I'm still working on getting better with that...it's HARD!! Oh....I just remembered....I LOVE MFT's Vertical Greetings stamp set and die!! I use those sentiments SO often for the Cancer patients I make cards for. Hmmm...I may have to buy the 2nd set of Vertical Greetings now, too!
