Hello and happy Monday to you all -- I hope all my U.S. friends are enjoying a little time off on this long holiday weekend. I had the chance to do a little stamping and have a birthday card to share with you -- it uses the current MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch #191. You can find out more about MFT's weekly challenge and how you can participate, to possibly win some stamping goodies (and find all the entry samples using this sketch) over at the MFT blog here.
I started with a kraft cardstock panel and stamped MFT's new Spotlight Sentiments with Sweet Tooth pigment ink. Once dry, I highlighted one of the spotlight sentiments by coloring it with Pink Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Pen.
Next, I placed strips of watercolored cardstock I had left over after trimming them from my September calendar (in the post below this one) in between the stamped rows -- I thought they gave just enough hint of color to accent the lower right pink panel and butterfly.
The Pink Lemonade corner panel was sponged with Sweet Tooth ink through the Diagonal Stripes Stencil. It was topped with a kraft cardstock stitched circle (from Blueprints 18). BP18 is also the perfect die set to help you make these type of diagonal panel cards perfectly and with ease! Another strip of the watercolor paper accents the center of a Razzle Berry cardstock Fancy Butterfly Die-namics.
You still have until tomorrow at noon to play with the current sketch and enter your own creation. We hope you'll join us!
