8 years ago…

I married my hubby, Martin.  THE greatest hubby in the world and one for which I am eternally grateful, every single day.  I love you handsome, with all my heart, forever…

I used one of the new sets coming out TOMORROW (can you believe it’s that time already?), Peppermint Cats, to make a non-traditional anniversary card.  I think it worked!  This has become my new favorite layout, probably more than a little inspired by Jen Del Muro.  

What you can’t see in the pic is all the sparkle from SHIMMERZ which we are loading into the site as we speak!  I originally ordered 15 colors, but the day after I received them, I ordered the remainder. These things are COOL!  We should have them up for the release, so I hope you’ll check them out.

Speaking of the release, there is always a party, and it will be held right HERE!  I hope you’ll join us tomorrow night at 9pm EST for some serious fun!

You also have one more day to enter for the blog candy!!!  Interested?  See THIS post!

I’ll be back tomorrow with more teasers!

MFTeaser time!

Howdy all!  Wednesday night marks our new release party, and we have all been having a blast with the new stuff!  I thought I’d show off a couple peeks today, and then a couple more tomorrow.  I made time this w/e to actually do some stamping, some successful and some not-so-much, but hey, I’m not complaining!  This card is made from one of the new sets, Christmas Owls, illustrated by Stephanie Fizer.  It’s paired up with paper and ribbon from the Chillin collection, which I LOVE!!

This card is made following the MFT sketch challenge on Thursday, and features A Scarf for Three, also by Stephanie Fizer.  I love her style, so stinkin’ adorable!!!  I used some digital paper from MFT, and the star sticky is from Jody’s sticky share.

So join us Wed night, from 9-11pm as unveil the new sets and products, and don’t forget to enter for an MFTreat on THIS post!

Oldie PLUS Goodie Friday…and MFTreat Time!

Good morning (here at least) it’s Friday!  I created this simple boxy bag, originated by Jody Morrow, for a make n take project we’re doing at a Rep show next month.  It was SO stinkin’ simple, I looked at it initially and thought it looked very complicated, but once I really started the process it came together in a jif. I used the Chill Out image from Annie LaPoint, and stamped it twice, once on white cs and once on pp.  I needed to create something you can replicate within 10 minutes, so a lot of coloring was not an option!  Inside I packed a Chill Out stamp, so at the end of the make n take this can be handed out as a door prize!  

Today is Oldie PLUS Goodie Friday on the MFT SCS Forum, the challenge is an inspiration card, so check it out!  The PLUS Goodies part refers to the $5 gift certificate someone will win just for playing along today.

As the Oct 1st release draws near, it’s also time for an MFTREAT!!!!

Many months ago, Cindy Haffner emailed me asking if we could carry some kind of hard plastic case to house our MFT stamps.  I thought that sounded like a clever idea, and went to work finding a company to manufacture them, IN FULL COLOR!  I mean really, your MFT stamps are stylish, and deserve a home as fashionable as they are, right?  So no plain Jane case for us!  These will go on sale Wed night during the release, and we are incredibly excited about sharing them with all of you!  I will post next week with my labeling suggestions, and exactly how much you fit into one of these babies, but for now, let’s just play!

The MFTreat will consist of one storage box and TWO of the retiring sets of my choosing, both of which (and then some) will fit inside this storage box!

How is that for some good, clean fun!

Leave a numbered comment below and I’ll pull a winner Wed afternoon!!!

Pamela Harris is getting a Scor Pal!

And a Scor Mat!  Pam, email me at kim@mftstamps.com to let me know you are ready to have me send them out!  Pamela won these fabulous products in a random drawing to all who made purchases in support of the Alzheimer’s Association.  Pam, I hope you enjoy it!

The card in this post was made by none other than Stamp Owl herself!  It meets the current sketch challenge AND the Monday Who’s That Girl? challenge!

Cammie’s blog candy is still going on, tomorrow is the day she pulls a winner I believe, so if you haven’t participated yet there is still time!

I also modified the special below slightly, as apparently there are many MFT fans who already have all of our Halloween sets!  So, I modified it so that if you purchase any 3 sets, you can choose one of the sentiment sets in the post below.  If you purchase any 2 sets, you can choose from the MINI sets in the post below this one, and if you purchase 5 sets, well you can pick one of each!  

Don’t add them to your cart, just list you free set choices in the comments box.

How exciting to have so many loyal fans, you guys ROCK!   And make this such a wonderful experience!

It's What's Up Wednesday!

I know it’s not officially Wednesday, but I will be out and about so much tomorrow that I wanted to post early so I wouldn’t forget!

I didn’t need to make a wedding card today, but I really felt like playing around with the bride from Goin’ to the Chapel.  I used my Fiskars Treading Water punch at the card bottom, the pearlescent paints on her dress, and Liquid Pearls for the edging around the scallops.

So what’s up this Wednesday???  Good stuff, that’s for sure! We have two things new for today, the first is a new product, Petaloo FELT flowers!  I originally saw these in Feb at CHA, and fell in love! They weren’t shipping until recently, but we finally got them!  There are several colors but in limited quantities, so lemme know if I need to order more!

Second, I thought with Halloween right around the corner, we need to show a little love to our outrageously adorable Halloween sets!  We currently have 3 Halloween sets, Totally Witchin’, Monster Squad and Fright Night.  

If you purchase all 3, you’ll receive a full sized sentiment set for FREE!  You can choose one of the following:

Grateful Greetings

Happiest Birthday Wishes

Lotsa Love

Tis the Season

If you purchase 2 of the 3, you’ll receive a FREE MINI set!  You can choose one of the following:

Baby It’s Cold Outside

Serenity Now!

What’s the Story?

Be Mine

Just list your set choice in the comments section when you place your order, now through Friday!

And if you’re feeling chatty this evening, we’ll be hanging out in our SCS Member Company Forum Wed night starting at 9pm EST!  We might even feel inclined to give you a peek of what’s coming in the Oct. release…

Two-fer Sunday

I spent all morning yesterday cleaning my office, and in the process found lots of pieces and parts of half finished cards.  So, once my office was tidy, I just HAD to play!  I took these two main images and put them on cards and finished them off.  

The first card is colored with colored pencil and is more vibrant than the photo shows it to be.  The second card, looks so much nicer IRL, the edges of the white panel are glittered, and it doesn’t show up at all in this photo!

Today is the last day for the Cammie 10% promo, simply enter Cammie as a coupon code at checkout to receive a 10% discount on all stamps, and I will donate 10% of all sales to the Alzheimer’s Association.  I actually donated this morning, since they were running a promo to match donations through today, so the money we raised is actually 20%!

Today is also the day Cammie is having the biggest blog candy known to man, so please check it out!
