Wednesday Stamp Club – MFTWSC3

We’re on our third week of our new weekly sketch format and it is a joy to stop by the Splitcoast Galleries and see your entries each day!  If you haven’t had a chance to drop by our forum on Splitcoast, you are all cordially invited to stop by, chat with our designers, and all of your MFT sisters!  Its a great opportunity to get inspired, share some tips and tricks or even pick a few up!

We encourage you all to play along, and to enter your card in the weekly draw for up to a $20 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 (each Tuesday at noon EST!)  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.

Are you a fan of My Favorite Things on Facebook?  Be sure to join us over there, we’ve got an album created with our sketches so far, and will be adding to it each week. What a wonderful way to have all the sketches on hand for ongoing inspiration! You’ll find the album HERE.

Okay, now onto this week’s sketch…  lots of possibilities here, I am can’t wait to see which stamps you will all choose!

To get you started, how about a stunning sample in purple from Karen Motz. Lots of paper piecing, sparkle and her signature perfect stitching too!

Wednesday Stamp Club – Getting Sketchy

From the looks of last week’s Splitcoast Gallery, you are all as thrilled about our new Wednesday Stamp Club format  we are!  And we were were simply overwhelmed with the HUGE number of entries! Thank you so much to each and every one of you that  participated.  We had over 100 entries in the SCS gallery!  To view ALL of week 1′s entries, click HERE to be redirected to the SCS gallery.

The winner, chosen at random, will be posted in the week 2 challenge thread on SCS.  Be sure to stop by to see if you are the winner and to claim your prize.  Remember, that in 2011, MFT is committed to giving away up to $1040 in gift vouchers.  That is a LOT of stamps.

The MFT designers and fans have had a ball this week chatting it up in the WSC chat thread.  We share creations, banter, and giggles as we all support one another.  Everyone is happy to answer questions, help you get started, and get to know you, so be sure to STOP BY.  At the end of each thread, there will be a link directing you to the following week’s thread, for your convenience.  The new threads are posted early Wednesday morning, so be sure to make it part of your weekly ritual to stop by and say hello to your MFT sisters.  You’ll find the thread posted in the MFT Member Company Forum.

Since we had so much fun in week one, are you ready for our next sketch! I really do hope that you’ll play along with us each and every week, and this week’s sketch, well based on the number of designers that are playing along today, I think you’ll agree, its a great one! Remember to add your creation to the galleries on Splitcoast using the keyword MFTWSC2 and be sure to stop by the our forum to visit too!

I’ve seen a sampling of what our designers have been up to, and I just adore this simply sweet project from Dawn – I adore her pleated ribbon down the center!

Wednesday Stamp Club – Getting Sketchy

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.

Are you ready for a peek at our first sketch?  You’ll see that it gives you the flexibility to play with such a wide variety of stamps, I can’t wait to see which one you’ll pick to help us kick off our new Wednesday Stamp Club format!

Be sure to upload your creation using the keyword: MFTWSC1! I’m including a beautiful sample from Jody this week using one of our new Pure Innocence stamp sets Because You’re Special

And as long as we’re making fun announcements, please join me in welcoming Karen Motz -  to our Challenge Team! You’ll recognize Karen’s name, and fabulous style as she’s been this month’s Guest Designer!  Karen will be joining us weekly to inspire you with our new sketch format!
