Here is my card featuring Rainy Day Friends.

For my card I kept everything summery by using the Summer Color Collection:

Paper Pack, Glittered Garnishes, Skinny Ribbon and Fossil cardstock.  I also used a piece of Spring paper to create this fancy little flower from a technique I learned from Joanne, so stop by her blog and ask her for a tutorial!

ALL orders will receive a FREEBIE

ALL orders OVER $75 will receive a FREE Rainy Day Friends set!

WSC – Patchwork Easter (03.31.10)

Happy Wednesday all! I’m back with another edition of Wednesday Stamp Club, and today we are making good use of all those bits and scraps of paper lying on our (or maybe just mine?) desk top!

Here is my completed patchwork Easter card featuring What’s Crackin:

To create the patchwork panel, I punched 8 squares from the Spring Paper Pack and glued them onto my Sour Apple panel. I didn’t glue anything in the center because I knew my main image would go on top.

Then, I ran the patchwork panel through my Big Shot with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. It really made it look complete, and pulled it all together!

Your WSC Challenge this week is:
1) Create your own patchwork panel and incorporate it into your project

2) Create a card using my layout

When you’ve finished your project, post it to your blog or the gallery on SCS using keyword MFTWSC033110. Then pop back over to the MFT Blog and leave a link on our Mr. Linky! (If you don’t have a blog, you can use the URL of your gallery post as your Mr. Linky link.)

Come play along with us for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the MFT Store.

Supplies Used:
What’s Crackin’?
Glitzy Glitter
Spring Paper Pack

WSC – Glitzy Glitter (03.24.10)

Hi all! I’m back with a new Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge, creating unique and fun embellishments with Glitzy Glitter.

We all know how to add “snow” to a rooftop, or “icing” on a cake or cupcake, but this week let’s think a little more creatively and see what uses we can find for Glitzy Glitter.

Here is the card I created:

I decided to create a glittery sun and some glittery grass for my project. I basically I cut a small white panel, coated it in Diamond Glaze and covered it in the Spring Glitzy Glitter. I allowed it to dry thoroughly, then snipped the paper to create little blades of grass.

Here’s a close up of the grass:

For my second example, I have to admit I am tickled pink over this one, I used a foam dot as my flower center, and then added glitter on top of the foam dot (after exposing the adhesive) to create a glittery flower center. I can’t show you the whole card because the image won’t be released until April 7th, but I can “bear-ly” wait until I get to introduce you to this sweet fellow!

Supplies Used:
An Apple for You
Spring Paper Pack
Skinny Spring Ribbon
Spring Glittered Garnishes
Perfect Paper Panels
Spring Glitzy Glitter
Glitzy Glitter

Your WSC challenge this week is:

1) Create a custom embellishment using Glitzy Glitter (or glitter of your choosing)

2) Create a card or project featuring hand snipped grass

3) Create a card using my layout
When you’ve finished your project, post it to your blog or the gallery on SCS using keyword MFTWSC032410. Then pop back over here and leave a link on our Mr. Linky! (If you don’t have a blog, you can use the URL of your gallery post as your Mr. Linky link.)

WSC – Go GREEN

For this weeks Wednesday Stamp Club, we are going green!  But maybe not in the way you are thinking…what with St, Patrick’s Day right NOW.  I am using the term in the reduce, recycle, reuse category.

You might remember the card I posted in yesterday’s VIP WTG Hop, but what I didn’t mention is the fact that I’d used a page from Emma’s Hello Kitty coloring book!  Can you see it??

Can you see it now???  Yes, Emma had colored away, but on this side, the page was this interesting grid that I thought would work on this shabby baby card.  Clever huh?  And you thought all that artwork was for naught?  LOL!

So your challenge this week is:

1) Reuse or recycle anything you can find that would work on your project

2) Use green or anything with a St. Patrick’s Day theme

When you’ve finished your project, post it to your blog or the gallery on SCS using keyword MFTWSC031710.  Then pop back over here, to the MFT Blog and leave a link on our Mr. Linky!  (If you don’t have a blog, you can use the URL of your gallery post as your Mr. Linky link.)

Come play along with us for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the MFT Store.

And would you like to know who won this week? It’s Sonja with this beautiful creation!

WSC – Flopsey Unfinished

Happy Wednesday to all!  This week I wanted to focus on our favorite bunny, Flopsey, but to take it a bit further and challenge you to leave him UNIFINISHED!  Yep, uncolored, unfinished, as is.  Now I know this is striking panic in the hearts of all of us coloring, paper piecing girls, BUT, the purpose of WSC is to Learn. Grow. Know., so I’m confident we CAN do this!  I will give you one little cheat…you CAN paper piece him!

I found some amazing examples from Joanne and Michele to get you started, and I believe Julie has something she’s working on as well!

This weeks WSC Challenge is:

*Use any Flopsey (DIGI’s count too!) image

*Use any main image and leave it completely colorless or paper pieced

Upload your creation to SCS using keyword MFTWSC02242010 or to your blog, and then link it back here (you can use your gallery url if you don’t have a blog) to our fabulous Mr. Linky for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate! You have until midnight Tuesday, March 2nd to play along.

Who’s ready for a SWEET TREAT? In celebration of Flopsey, you can select your favorite Flopsey set today through Friday and save $2.50!!!  (Only one per order, maximum of two orders) Enter code FLOPSEY at checkout to save on your favorite bunny.  You’ll need to add him to your cart in order for the code to work.

WSC – A Tisket, a Tasket, a Sweet Little Basket

For this weeks WSC, I’ve created an Easter Basket using our new Basket Template designed by Mel McCarthy, but this could easily be a treat basket (and many other things as you’ll soon learn!) as well.

I printed out my Easter Basket Template, and the Liner and Handle Templates (included) on the Easter DIGI Paper Pack.

Here is the bottom of the basket; cut, scored and glued.

Here are the inner liner pieces and handle cut and ready to add to the inside of my basket.

Here is my empty basket once all the pieces and parts are added together.

And a view from the side.

Using a nestie tag die, and some Spring Ribbon, I added a sentiment tie around the basket so that both the front and back sides are decorated.  I secured the ribbon using some Baby Braddies.

Here’s a close up of the sentiment.

Here is the front of my Easter Basket.  I used the One Sheet Wonder white cardstock as my base and colored in my bunny in very soft, pastel colors fitting for Spring.

I added Glitzy Glitter to the eggshell for extra texture and sparkle!

Then I loaded it up with Truffles!  How long do you think they will last?  I’ll give you a hint…they didn’t!

This weeks WSC Challenge is:

*Use either the Easter Basket Template, or another MFT Template

*Create something for Easter or Spring

*Use any MFT DIGI Paper Pack

Upload your creation to SCS using keyword MFTWSC02172010 or to your blog, and then link it back here (you can use your gallery url if you don’t have a blog) to our fabulous Mr. Linky for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate!  You have until midnight Tuesday, February 23rd to play along.

WSC – Love Birds – 3 Different Looks (02.10.10)

This week on Wednesday Stamp Club, we are all about L*O*V*E. We’ve got 3 cards, all created with Love Birds and featuring the Chocolate Kiss Collection of Papers, Ribbons, & Crystals.

Come play along with us for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the MFT Store!

Starting simply, I stamped my bird couple (don’t ya LOVE her foot up in the air!) and tree in Chocolate Brilliance.  I made a three layer flower using Nesties and then added some Sweet Thing Glitzy Glitter on the hearts.

Here’s a close up of my flower with a tiny Chocolate Kiss Button!  You can kinda see some of the Glitzy Glitter too.

Stepping it up slightly, with this card I used just the tree image, and punched tiny flowers out of Chocolate Kiss papers and attached them to my tree.

Here’s a close up of the tree so you can see the dimension of the flowers I popped up.  I also added some Chocolate Kiss Crystals to dot the “i’s” in the sentiment.

For this card, I stepped it up a bit and added some felt clouds using the Labels #6 Nestie Dies, some larger Chocolate Kiss Buttons and some Chocolate Kiss Baby Braddies.

Your WSC Mission…

Doesn’t that sound so “official”?  There are many ways you can play this week, and here are a few starters:

  • Use Love Birds
  • Use any products from the Chocolate Kiss Collection
  • Create Valentine cards
  • Use one of the layouts from these 3 cards

Isn’t that simple?  Remember, Wednesday Stamp Club is about inspiring your creativity, and should be used as a jumping off point, not as a “should”.

Wednesday Stamp Club – 1.27.10

Hi everyone!

Kim asked if I’d host this week for Wednesday Stamp Club!  This week, I’ve prepared a little video for you too which you can find HERE.  The challenge, is to use your MFT Stamps to create a piece of altered art/home decor.  I just love filling my house with little bits here and there.  Its so much more fun (and less expensive) than buying something ready made from the store. And besides, you get to show your stamps some love!

Here’s my sample using MFT’s Bling Bet and the MFT Perfect Plaid Ribbon.

This week’s chatter thread has been set up, I’d love to chat with you, so please come on by!  You can meet us here:

To enter this week’s challenge – you’ll need to create your own piece of altered art and upload it to your blog, or your online gallery if you don’t have one.  Add the URL of your piece to the Mr Linky below.  Entries will be accepted until Tuesday, February 2nd at Midnight EST.

How could I forget to add the winner of last week’s texture challenge…. drum roll please…. congratulations to Chris! I just LOVE the ruffled treatment around her card, and that cuttlebug moon. So very sweet!

See you on the forum!!

((hugs)))

Joanne

WSC – Birthday Card Bonanza (1.13.10)

Welcome to the first Wednesday Stamp Club of 2010!

This week we are creating quick, simple and fun birthday cards. I always find myself needing a birthday card, and inevitably end up making one at the last second possible, so would like to get a jump start this year!

This weeks Stamp Club is not only about getting organized, but also shows how to use open line art images WITHOUT coloring them in!

MFT is known for its open line art images, and while that’s a plus when you are as addicted to coloring as I am, it does not come in handy when you have 15 minutes to make a card.

To make it super simple, I’ve created 4 (yes, read it and weep, 4!) cards using MFT images and did NO coloring. Heck, I took it one step further and even added a video! See how thoughtful I am?

Thoughtful, yes; videographer, no. This is my first ever video, and as it turns out I have MUCH to learn about iMovie. Sigh. But there’s always tomorrow…

If you’d like to see it a bit larger, or subscribe to the MFT Channel, HERE is a link to YouTube.

Here are pics of the four cards I created for this weeks Birthday Card Bonanza:

This week make sure to upload your creation to the SCS gallery by using keyword MFTWSC011310 AND/OR upload it to your blog. Either way, head back here and link it below in our Mr. Linky box for your chance to win a PRIZE!  What can you win?  A $15 gift voucher to the MFT Store!

Are you ready for this weeks Scoop Special?  We’ve got two!  How’s that for a treat?

*Wednesday Only – ALL orders receive a FREEBIE!  Something fun, fabulous and FREE!

*Wednesday through Sunday – All orders receive a FREE Single Digi Paper Pack!  Add the single paper pack you would like to your cart and enter code GETDIGI at checkout to deduct $3.00.

You MUST add your selection to your cart or you will not receive it.

You MUST add the code GETDIGI in the area that says discount codes/gift vouchers or your order total will not be discounted.
