MFT Sketch



Good morning! I wanted to play along in the MFT Sketch Challenge that Cindy posted yesterday. This is a REALLY old MFT stamp that I haven't used since 2008 (oh my!)...I really love it though and thought it would work well for the horizontal panel. I also wanted to use some new toys that I got at CHA....the cork and the small scallop die-namics!

I stamped the tub twice, once on the Vintage Cream CS and once on the DP. The one from the DP was cut out and popped up on foam tape. I added some Stickles spraying out of the shower head and added some more on all the centers of the flowers on the paper pieced tub. Oh, and because the cork is thicker than regular paper, the left half of the main image is up on foam tape and then I glued down the right side (over the cork) with some regular Ad-tech glue.

Hope you have a great day!

Oh how pretty Denise!! I just love the soft colors you used and the addition of the cork. I have never used cork on my creations before but you have inspired me to try it.

I think that stamp is a classic that will never go out of style! I love how you worked cork into such a feminine card - it looks fabulous! I never could have imagined cork on anything but a guy card, but you proved me wrong! This is just beautiful!!!!

Very pretty, I really like the designer paper and the cork.

That's funny that you used that stamp a few days ago I was going thru a pile of cards that I kept for ideas and I found one that you sent me with this image...it was in purple.

Your cards are always so beautiful :)

Gorgeous card Denise! Love how you added some dimension to the bathtub. Beautiful dp too. Love the cork and that pink ribbon - oh my, how PERFECT is that pink bow!! Sometimes I take longer fiddling with ribbons and bows than I take to make the rest of my card!!

Amy Johnson said...

Ooh, I bought cork at CHA too and haven't used it. I'm not sure what to do with it. I never would have thought of cutting out butterflies with it. Thats really cool. Love the paper pieced tub. Such a neat card.

Marisa said...

Denise ~ such a delightful card. I got some of that cork several years ago and never used it. You made it look just wonderful on this card. And I love that stamp you used!

Still giddy over meeting you girlie. I FINALLY got my pics off the computer that got a NASTY virus on it as soon as I got back from CHA and Best Buy was able to save 80 out of the 175 I took :( I will post them to FB and send you the ones of us (they aren't infected, don't worry, LOL! I have them on my new Mac :)

Now-as for this AMAZING card-I NEVER would have thought to do cork butterflies-LOVE them!
