The Countdown Has Begun – It's TEASER Time!

Today we are previewing Clearly Sentimental about Birthdays & A Bunch of Bots.

Several months back we released Love Machine, and I have found when it’s time to make a masculine card, Love Machine is about all I reach for.  So, it was definitely time to bring on the BOTS!

Clearly Sentimental about Birthdays was last months Triple Scoop Set, and is now being released on its own.  I am so excited by how popular these Sentimental sets continue to be, I LOVE it!!!

All the new sets will be released April 7th at 10pm EST.  You can start partying with us early, and stay in the loop RIGHT HERE!

Today, prepare to be blown away….the following MFT’ers have amazing eye candy just for YOU:

Megan

Amy

Christina

Kerry (This months AMAZING Guest Designer!)

Melody

Joanne

Julie

Jessie (This months Guest Designer Contest Hostess, play along for a chance to win over $125 in FREE stamps!)

FREEZE Frame Day 4 – Jolinne

I’m back today with a FREEZE Frame featuring one of the two new Jolinne sets releasing April 7th at 10pm EST.

You might notice the font is a bit different.  As soon as I saw this new font, I immediately thought JOLINNE and had to change it. Isnt’ it lovely?  And so fitting for lovely Jolinne!

This set is called Jolinne – Sweet Spring.  Sigh…  Just beautiful, huh?

Our Favorite Find

What a crazy week, in a panic I realized that I didn’t announce the March Favorite Find yesterday!! We’ll just chalk it up to a little April Fools day fun right?

Each month, we will highlight just one of these projects as our very most Favorite Find of the month! The designer selected will receive a $20 coupon (good only towards stamps) to the MFT site.  We’ll announce our selection on the last day of each month, just in time for that designer to pick up some of the newest goodies at the upcoming release!

The designer that has been selected this month has had so many stunning creations featuring MFT Stamps, it was hard to single out just one of hers as the favorite…  Without any further ado, this month’s favorite find is this gorgeous creation from Sonja.

Please click the link below to stop by Sonja’s blog and leave some love on this sweet project (and be sure to check out all her other beautiful creations while you’re there!!)

blog it

Don’t forget that previews from the design team will begin on Saturday, and new sets will be shared every day until the release on Wednesday! Since it is preview week, there will be no Favorite Finds next week. I’ll see you for a full two week roundup on the 13th with all your gorgeous creations!

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
Sour Apple Cardstock
Perfect Paper Panels
Bakery Blend Ribbons
Spring Ribbon Nest
Spring Buttons

FREEZE Frame Day 2 – Millie the Mouse and Fred Bear

Hi all!  I’m back with today’s FREEZE Frames!  This month we are introducing two new characters, Millie the Mouse and Fred Bear.

Millie is the creation of Christy Beckwith, our WTG and Flopsey character, and Fred Bear is from a brand new, and quite famous Illustrator in the UK.  I am in LOVE with this guy.  Seriously.  We are releasing two Fred Bear sets April 7th (10pm EST) but I’m only FREEZE Frame-ing one set today.  You’ll just have to wait until teasers to see the second one…  I know, my meaness is completely uncalled for.

Pure sweetness, huh???  See you tomorrow…. :)

MFT Fabulous Friend Debbie Olson

This week I am honored to have a Debbie Olson join us as MFT’s Fabulous Friend!

As an interesting bit of MFT Trivia, Debbie was the very first ever MFT Guest Designer.

I have long been a huge fan of this stamping legend, and am always inspired by amazing artistry.

Before we get to her lovely creation, let’s get nosy!

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

I can’t stay away from my sewing machine. Somebody needs to lock it up! Buttons are a close second. If I had no buttons or sewing machine, I think I might need to quit stamping.

What’s your favorite MFT set and why?

Right now, I love the charm of the Pure Innocence line in general, but a favorite? Hmmmm–perhaps the Better Get Better girl and teddy bear. She’s such a darling image for get well cards!

What do you hoard?

I tend to hoard certain embellishments–chipboard, flowers, lace. I use ribbon and buttons, but save the other things–weird, I know. I’m not as bad about hoarding as I used to be, mostly because I have begun to learn that it’s better to use something when you still love it and when it’s fresh and trendy, than to wait until you don’t love it any more and it’s old hat to everyone.

Here is her sweet Happy Mail card…

Debbie was even kind enough to list her Copic color choices for us!

Please make sure you stop by Debbie’s BLOG to leave her some love and thank her for sharing her wonderful work with all of us!  She MIGHT even have more eye candy…
