Happy Monday!

Copic markers are the product spotlight with My Favorite Things this week. You’ll see why with this weeks HTDT? feature by Candice!  I won’t say more….just make sure you check it out on Wednesday.

Your Spotlight Savings:

This week only, when you purchase a box of Copic markers (one set of 36), you will receive a FREE mini set of your choice.  Simply list your set selection in the comments section of your order.  Choose any set that retails for $9.  Want more than one box?  No problem!  This bonus is good for any number of boxes purchased.  Offer is good from 2/16-2/20.  (This offer not good in conjunction with gift vouchers.)

Here is a peek at the card created by Michele Boyer for today’s Weekly Spotlight, and in addition to being a gorgeous card, it is hilarious, as is her post!  There is also a good hint in her card for the contest mentioned in the post below…

Here is another of the Spring Sample Board cards.  I’ve combined 4 sets in this card, can you tell which ones?  The original design for this card came from Jody, she was helping me with design ideas for the board.  It’s actually quite difficult to design four cards using 1) one specific paper pack, and making sure to demo all 5 colors, (HUGE contest hint) 2) Using one ribbon pack and again demoing all 5 colors, 3) Using 5 stamp sets and demoing them all in easy to replicate, but noticeable ways.  That would be a fun challenge for everyone next time they really want to get the creative juices flowing!  And, as my experience details, it’s OK to phone a friend…I did!

Supplies Used:

Spring Paper Pack

Can Ya’ Dig It

It’s Elemental

Eggstra Special Easter

Punch a Bunch

Brilliance Ink

Copic Markers

Spring Ribbon Bundle

Can ya' Dig It?

Happy Sunday/Monday all! (depending on when you receive notice this blog has been updated)  You are My Sunshine..I love that song and this sentiment, it makes me smile…

I had a clever, although not original idea, to make a little *garden* as the focal point of this card.  When I was creating the Spring Sample Board that our wholesale stores receive, I wanted to show some out of the box options for the sets.  Something beyond just seeing the main set image in a traditional way.

I stamped the seed packets, colored them and punched them out using the smallest square punch I had.  I then taped half a toothpick on the back to create the “stake” and mounted them to the front panel.

Since one of the sets in the Spring Sample Board is It’s Elemental, I used the ric rac stamp in an out of the box way to create the ground.

For some reason, the peas stake shows up crooked n this pic, but it doesn’t appear that way IRL, so who knows what happened!

I am running a fun little contest right now, if you’d like to enter, email your entry to kim@mftstamps.com.  Here’s the two questions you need to answer to be entered in the drawing:

1) We are releasing a new set Wed night (2/18), can you tell me what it is?  Here’s your hint…Let’s twist again…like we did last year!

2) MFT is releasing a Brand Spankin’ New exclusive product, (two of them actually).  Something we’ve never made before.  Can you tell me what it is?

All correct guesses will go into a drawing to win one of each!  The winner will be announced Tuesday night on my blog.

Have a great day!

And after all that GO-ing, help Who’s That Girl? relax with Serenity Now!

Retail of the 3 sets is $49.85, but with the bundle, you get Serenity Now! FREE of charge!  But wait…there’s more! (I am SOOOO cheesy, but I love saying that!) The real WUW Hook-Up is that the bundle is also on special, today only, for $45!

And the winners are….

This month it was impossible to select only one Guest Designer, so we chose two!

Mrs. Mac created this amazing pyramid box that is a pictoral of her stamping resume.  Now she can add one more achievement!

Not only was the project a completely original idea and template, she also used several MFT sets, and the newest digi papers. Chocolate Kiss.

We were completely smitten by this acetate chocolate box created by cadnileb, it’s just too cute!

Both girls will receive our March Who’s That Girl? set, and Mrs. Mac will receive the remainder of the MFT March sets, and cadnileb will receive the MFT Presents sets.

I’ll be back tomorrow with our Ambassadors, and you WON’T want to miss their incredible projects!

Weekly Spotlight

The Weekly WOW has become the Weekly SPOTLIGHT!  We are making some refinements to the MFT Weekly line-up, mostly to streamline all of the fun things we do each week into a cohesive, easy to follow (and play along!) format.  Instead of a week long Weekly WOW, we are instead spotlighting either a product or a set each week.  We hope this inspires you to create with your beloved MFT sets!  Each Monday, the Weekly Spotlight will kick off with Michele Boyer, giving all of us some much needed eye candy to start the week off the right way!

Here is a little TEASE of her card, so you can head to her blog to see it in all its glory, and read her post, which I found quite humorous!

We will also be streamlining the WUW format as well, again to make it easier to follow and so that everything we do will have a cohesive, purposeful feel.  Over the next couple of weeks, and under the capable helm of Jody, watch how it all comes together!

Today we will announce the March MFT Guest Designer, so I’ll post details as soon as I have them!

Did you see this?

Sigh….the beauty above was created by Amy, and since it just brings me joy seeing it, I thought I’d share it with all of you!  It’s been awhile since I’ve done a “Did you see this?”, so now’s a great time!

I LOVE how she used an alphabet as the main image!  Bling ‘Bet is one of those sets that just *shines* when you see it in action.

There’s still time to participate in this month Guest Designer challenge, and March is a terrific month to join us!  For more info, you can read all about it HERE.

Have a great day!
