Hello!

MFT FrontPorch wm

Hi everyone,

It’s day 2 of the MFTeasers, in preparation of the release of the new stamp sets which are all due to be released by MFT Stamps this coming Tuesday 7th August.

Today the Design Team are featuring 2 stamps sets. I am sharing with you a card I created using the Inspired By Front Porch stamp set.

It’s also challenge time again with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week being a brand new month we have a new challenge hostess which is Anne Harmon. Anne’s favorite color is red, so this week she has challenged us to use red on our cards. My red is a dark red, close to burgundy but that is still red!

I stamped the image onto my card using Creamy Brown Fluid Chalk. I used the Die-namics Award Seal and Die-namics Circle STAX Set 2 at the top left corner of my image. The Die-namics Award Seal is sized to work with First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics, or it can be used independently like I have on my card here. Along the left edge of the rectangular panel of card I used the Die-namics Triple Scallop Border, I used the smaller of the three borders from this die for this. The sentiment used the Die-namics Designer Labels 4 Stax, I cut this twice … once from white and once from black and then cut apart the black piece to mount behind the white one.

Here is the inside of my card. I added the chair in the lower left hand corner and another of the sentiments. This time round I used the middle sized border from the Die-namics Triple Scallop Border along the right hand side of my card.

Don’t forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs.
