MFT Fabulous Friend – Dawn Easton

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had an amazing and relaxing weekend and are ready to take on a SUPERCHARGED week!

I’m back today with a new Fabulous Friend, and one I had the pleasure of meeting over the winter at the CHA Supershow in CA. She is ADORABLE. I wish I’d had time to just hang out and chat with her more because I just loved her!

Let’s learn a bit more about Dawn before I show off her incredible samples!

What is your signature move? Is there one style or technique that seems to adorn your every creation?
It’s funny when people ask what my style is and I’m never quite sure what to say. Although I do get comments saying that they knew it was my card immediately in the SCS gallery! LOL! If I had to pick something, I’d say it’s that I make cards that contain many layers. I used to paper pierce a lot and still do but I’ve started to move to sewing now. It’s all the rage and I thought it was time I hopped on that bandwagon ;) Just don’t look too closely at my stitches, they need work! Ha!

What’s your favorite MFT set and why?
You seriously, want me to pick just one? Do you know that I just went on a roadtrip with some girlfriends to a scrapbooking store (1.5 hours away) just so I could get new MFT stamps?! I love them all! I’ve always loved the Who’s That Girl line though. There is something about her that we can all relate to. Everyone that I’ve given a card to using those images, just loves them! The new Pure Innocence line is fast becoming a fave of mine too! She’s just adorable and so fun to colour with copics!

Any funny stamping stories? Glitter mishaps?? SPILL!
Well I’m not known for having the tidiest stamping space. Just ask my daughter! LOL! I call her down to the basement to help me find my tape, foam dots, ink pads or whatever it is that I happen to be missing at that time. She almost always finds it right in front of me…ha! I don’t think I can stamp a card without making a mess. It’s amazing that I don’t spend more than 30 minutes with all my issues…lol

Dawn created three beautiful samples using Wrapped in Love, Miss You Much Jolinne and Love Birds.

Please take a moment and hop over to Dawn’s BLOG and let her know just how much we appreciate her sharing her tie and talen with all of us!

Friday Feature – Tote-ally Fantastic

Happy Friday to all! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend in store, and just in case you need to stamping “inkspiration” I am back with another Friday Feature.

This week, I am featuring Tote-ally Fantastic, which is available for $11.95 now through Monday. In case I haven’t mentioned it recently, I am a purse-a-holic. I LOVE real, designer purses, especially those found in shops named Chanel, Gucci and Dior. It’s the one item that I truly covet. If only my budget were as limitless as my imagination…

Well. once again I will live vicariously through Who’s That Girl! Here are some amazing “pretend” purse shopping samples that we can all afford!

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!

MFT Fabulous Friend – Amy Rohl

Happy Monday!  Today I’m excited to be featuring Amy Rohl, whom I had the pleasure of meeting last summer in Orlando.  I fell in love with her personality, and incredible humor, and just loved getting to know her!  Her work, for those of you that follow her, is always delightful and often enexpected!  I love it when I see a clever “trick” and scratch my head wondering why I hadn’t thought of it before, and I find myself doing that on almost every project Amy creates.

Before I show off Amy’s gorgeous projects, let’s get nosy!

What is your signature move?  Is there one style or technique that seems to adorn your every creation?

Boy, this is a tough one because I usually try out something I’ve seen someone else do, make it my own, hold onto it for a month and move to the next best thing I’ve seen. Right now, I’m loving Bingo cards and big bows with buttons…how’s that?!

What’s your favorite MFT set and why?

Right now, anything Pure Innocence, and if I have to specify which one, I would have to say You Make the Grade, even though I haven’t inked her up or paper pieced her…yet!

Any funny stamping stories?  Glitter mishaps??  SPILL!

I think the funniest, cutest thing I can think of was sitting down at my stamping table and detecting that “something” wasn’t right…a stamped image on my grid paper, ribbon lying about that I hadn’t used, scraps of paper that I hadn’t cut…only to find out later that my dear husband had been stamping a Christmas card for me while I was at work…I know, makes your tooth hurt, doesn’t it?!

Amy created two projects this week using An Apple for You and Happy Mail.  Sigh….  Aren’t they beautiful??

Now don’t forget to hop on over and let Amy know how much you appreciate her sharing her fabulous work with all of us!
