My Favorite Things!

Hi Friends!

Today I'm highlighting some of my new MFT Stamps for a chance to win MFT's Guest Designer Contest!    The rules are simple, follow the sketch, post, and hold your breath!!  (LOL!!_

So here's the sketch, which I was originally verklempted about.  I finally printed it out, rotated it a few times, and suddenly ideas started coming!  So tilt your head to the left, (so wavy strip is on top and flag is on the left), and check out the results!

xMFT Favorite Sentiments, Graphic 45 DP, rag ball ribbon, Want to Scrap bling

This card features a newly released sentiment set called "My Favorite Sentiments".  The sentiments are big, bold and easy to use as the focal point on your card.  I love that!!

I traced a small envelope pattern onto Graphic 45 DP and cut it out, leaving the top flap open.  I stamped my chosen sentiment onto more Graphic 45 DP and inserted it into the envelope.  Those become my top two panels of the card. 

The shabby ribbon I used is actually fabric that has been torn into thin strips.  A totally fun embellishment that my sister spotted for me at a local Antique store.  The assortment of 15 rag balls came in a basket and I just knew they belonged to me as soon as I saw them!!  I used it to make this "You Inspire Me" card for my sister for finding the ribbon for me!! 

This card uses MFT's  new "Dienamics Airplane Greetings and Stamp Set".  This is about to be my most favorite thing this year!  The fun die comes in several airplane-parts pieces so you can customize your plane in lots of different ways.  The coordinating stamp set comes with stars and stripes to decorate your little plane and 21 great sentiments designed to fit on the little flag that can trail behind the plane!  Brilliant, I say!

I die cut the plane out of Cherry Cobbler and silver "mirror" cardstock. I stamped a stripe across the body of the plane in Island Indigo, and then a little decorative star from the set onto white CS.  I cut out my little round star and covered it with a round epoxy sticker, then stuck it onto the plane at the end of the stripe.  I assembled all the pieces of the plane and adhered them to a map with dimensionals.

The screaming lady in cockpit was an afterthought I couldn't resist!  It's a stamp I purchased from an Etsy shop "Papershow" that has the quirkiest little stamps, I couldn't help myself!  I posted another card on SCS using this "Hair Raising" stamp here.

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!

I love both of these. Love the colors and that rag ribbon on the first one and I've been eyeing this airplane die/stamp set since it was released. Absolutely love that image you put in the cockpit - so fun!!
