MFT's Fabulous Friends – Carolyn King

Happy Monday to all!  I hope some of you are enjoying a LONG weekend!  Today I have a fun feature to share called MFT’s Fabulous Friends.  Our first Fabulous Friend is Carolyn King, aka Cammie aka Camster aka Craphead.  All spoken most lovingly of course!

I thought it would fun to ask a few questions of our Fabulous Friends and pick their brains a bit, so here’s what I came up with.

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

Cammie:  Honestly, I am not sure I have one.  I tend to tire of one style of card so I change mine up a lot, depending on my mood.  I love CAS, detailed coloring and really detailed creations.  If I had to pick one thing that adorns MOST of my creations, I would have to say scallops.  Love em!

Q:  What’s your favorite MFT set and why?

Cammie:  My favorite MFT set has always been Boho Blossoms because it is very versatile and you can use it with so many other sets.  I love the Twisted Sentiments because they are craptacular!  But, I am really digging the new PI images too. Sigh! Indecision.

Q:  Any funny stamping stories?  Glitter mishaps??  SPILL!

Cammie:  Who me?  That stuff doesn’t happen to me.  I can assure you my every stamping experience has been a neat and tidy success (roll eyes!).  However, I will share that in my “early” days, I did walk around for the bulk of a day with a flower adorning my bum.  I must have sat on it in the morning and it STUCK with me all day. Gotta love good adhesive (wink!)

Now who’s ready to see what Cammie created?  I am!!!

Featuring You Make the Grade and AlphaDOTS Cammie created this SWEET little pail.  Don’t ya LOVE those gingham hearts??

Isn’t that delightful???  Sigh.  I can just imagine this pail filled with pencils and erasers and sharpeners and markers.  OR, filled with candies (especially truffles) or bath & body pampering items, the options are just endless!

Next up Cammie created this super sweet card using Grow Love and our Easter set, What’s Crackin’, that will be released Wednesday, Feb 17th (along with our VIP Kit).  I LOVE how she combined these two sets to create a spring card that is so fresh and fun!

You can visit Cammie on her BLOG and I hope you’ll pop over and leave some love for her, letting her know you think her Fabulous Friend projects are precious!

Feature Friday – AlphaDOTS

Howdy all and happy Friday!  Today I wanted to show some love to one of my personal favorite sets, AlphaDOTS.  I don’t know about you, but alphabet sets (even those as amazing as the ones MFT offers) are often overlooked when I am shopping for stamps, but the first I end up looking for when I am creating!  What a dichotomy! So feast your eyes on this goodness, and have a wonderful weekend!

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”.

When you’ve finished your project, post it to your blog or the gallery on SCS using keyword MFTWSC021010.  Then pop over the to 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!

One Sheet Wonder is HERE

The one thing I found at CHA that I was truly impressed with is One Sheet Wonder Cardstock.  It’s a super smooth, slightly coated cardstock developed JUST for use with Copic Markers, so you KNOW I was ALL over it!  It has finally arrived in the MFT Store, and I’m so excited to share it with all of you!
