Let’s Picnic!

mft-picnics-wm

Today is the start of the MFTeasers …. MFT Stamps will have 3 new stamps to release after the release party this Wednesday 3rd June.

For my first project today I have a card using the new "who’s that girl” set for this month which is called “Let’s Picnic”.

I paper pieced the dress and the picnic blanket. Each of the food items are individual stamps which I stamped and cut out and then attached to the picnic blanket … I love how they are all individual as this gives you more options. Of course you can’t have a picnic without ants ….. right! so I stamped the ants at the bottom of the picnic blanket.

For my second project I decided to decorate a tin using this set … the colors and paper piecing are similar to the card I created using this set which I featured on Sunday.

Anyway I remembered buying these plastic ants many years ago so I figured it would be fun to use them in my tin. Now this tin would be a great addition to the picnic hamper cause if you discover there are no ants where you go picnicking you at least have your own you can use hehehehehe!

Would you like the chance to win this month’s “One-Click Collection” of stamp sets that will be released this Wednesday 3rd June. Head on over to the MFT Member forum to find out details on the new MFT “One-Click Contest”, some lucky person will be a winner!
