Hi!  It's á la modes time!  Isn't she sweet?  This is á la modes An Apple for Teacher and she's perfect for Teacher Appreciation week.  I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with Copic markers.  I also used my new favorite Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics behind the main image, and this time I layered two of them together.  




I stamped the sentiment on the inside, leaving enough room for a little note and then finished with a Pretty Posies Die-namics flower.

MFT is in party mode!  I made a wine bottle tag and matching card using Let's Toast Stamps & Die-namics for this fun duo.  I stamped the sentiments in Brilliance Graphite Black ink (which is perfect for those bold images and sentiments) and then on the bottle tag, I layered a few Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and wrapped some Buttercream Twine around the tag and tied it with a button and the circle charm from the Let's Toast Die-namics set.  

Here's a close-up of the tag:


For the card, I used Jen Shuts' DS45 and papers from Miss Caroline Be Happy 6x6 by My Mind's Eye.  The wine glasses are also part of the Let's Toast Die-namics and I used another circle charm and Buttercream Twine to bring in elements from the wine bottle tag.  


I used one of the larger Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics on the front of the card and a few Snow Pearls for accents.


I've used the same flag layering on the inside of the card as I did on the bottle tag and then added another circle charm sentiment.  I am SO excited about this fabulous set!  This was so much fun to make and I found myself wanting to add more and more to it.

Welcome to MFT teasers - day 3!  Today I'm giving you a little sneak peek at Clearly Sentimental about Anniversaries, which is this month's Triple Scoop Set.

The Triple Scoop reward is a full-sized stamp set offered to you absolutely FREE with a qualifying purchase of $60 or greater (before shipping and tax).  The set changes with each monthly release, and is not yet available for individual purchase, so there is always a good reason to spoil yourself with MFT!
  • Simply add the Triple Scoop product to your cart using the add to cart button, and it will be shipped with your order.
  • The Triple Set set can be combined with our Cherry on Top promotion as well for even greater savings!
  • PLEASE NOTE: We are not able to add Triple Scoop sets to your order once it is placed.  You will not receive it unless it is added to your cart.



I started off with Jen Shults' DS44 for the layout and then built the card around the sentiment.  I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics for the sentiment and I ran the die through my machine twice so I could create the fishtail on both sides.  I also used the Mini Rolled Roses and Vintage Flourish Die-namics to decorate the bottom of the card.


I left the inside of the card nice and open for a heartfelt note - just some simple sewing and another stamped sentiment.

Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers participating in today's Teaser.

Hello!  I so thrilled to show you Inspired by Knowledge today and I made a clean and easy card with it.  No Copics today, just quick and easy stamping.  I stamped the globe in Memento Rich Cocoa on kraft cardstock, which I cut out using the new Circle STAX Die-namics (woot!!).  The sentiment is stamped on the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics in vellum and then I also used my new favorite Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics, which I cut twice and then cut to size.  The layout is Sweet Stop's SSS151.


The inside is stamped again on the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and then I added a row of people with the Paper Dolls Border Die-namics.

MFT Wednesday Stamp Club

***This is my second post this morning, please scroll down or click here to see my TSG sneak***
 

Hello!  It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another fun sketch challenge from MFT!  Here's a look at the sketch:


I made a card using Pure Innocence Puppy Girl



I started by stamping her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored her with Copic markers.  I used the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics for the sentiment and added the Pet Charms Die-namics with a brad.  A little Caribbean Twine through the Open Scallop Doily Duo Die-namics does the trick.


I stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card and added the Double Scallop Border Die-namics to separate the patterned papers.

Please stop by the MFT Blog to catch a list of all the designers playing along in this week's sketch challenge.
