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!

WSC – An Apple for You

Kathy Daume created an amazing sample and Caramel Apple Template for My Favorite Things featuring An Apple for You.

MFT's Fabulous Friend – Jen Del Muro

This week we are back with a new Fabulous Friend, Jen Del Muro!  A fun fact that you may not know about Jen is that she was the first ever person (besides me!) to post a card using an MFT image on Splitcoast.  Fun, huh?  So we go WAY back, and it’s a pleasure having her join us today, so welcome Jen!

Before I show off her amazing work, I thought it would be fun to get nosy!

1) What is your signature move?  Is there one style or technique that seems to adorn your every creation?
I have a very clean style that is enhanced with layers.  I love using ribbon, buttons and twine along with stitching on a project.  In addition, I can’t think of the last time I did a project without using a punch or die cut machine.

2) What’s your favorite MFT set and why?
You aren’t going to get me to profess my love for just one single set.  Of course, I absolutely ADORE ‘Nite, Nite Ellie’ simply because it’s cute and an idea I had using my daughter, Ellie, as the muse.  I love all the different lines that MFT carries for different reasons, as they are fresh and fun to work with.

3) Any funny stamping stories?  Glitter mishaps??  SPILL!
Bet you didn’t know that stamping could be dangerous!  I am sure that many of you, like me, have cut your finger on paper or a blade.  But have you ever split the top of your foot?  I have…yes, seriously!  It was a complete fluke.  I was cleaning my mounting blocks and one slipped out of my hand, hit my table and took a tumble to the floor, hitting my foot along the way.  The corner of the block met the bone at the top of my foot and my skin split open, a small split, but still a very painful one.  Fortunately, it was in the summer so I could wear flip flops that wouldn’t rub on my stamping boo-boo.

And here’s what Jen created using Lovin’ from the Oven & Sweetie Pie Flopsey

Thanks so much for joining us!  And if you’d like to see more of Jen’s work, check out her BLOG.  Make sure you stop by and let her know how much you’ve appreciated her sharing these gorgeous samples with all of YOU!
