Top Shelf - Who’s That Girl? Hop!


Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. It time to join the MFT Stamps Design Team for another MFT "Who's That Girl Hop!" to celebrate the release of the MFT VIP Kit.

The hop started at Kim's (MFT Lady) blog so if you didn’t start from there you may want to head over there now so that you can start at the beginning of the hop. You don't want to miss anything and believe me there is lots to see!

Today only VIP customers have the opportunity of purchasing the WTG set "Top Shelf" TWO WEEKS EARLY!!!!!!!!!! There will only be 50 VIP collections available and then the set will be unavailable until the full release on May 5th at 10:00 PM EST.

For my first project today, I used the new “WTG Top Shelf”, I love that there are a number of different items to put on the shelves. I used MFT Stamps “My Favorite Paper Packs - Chocolate Kiss” to paper piece the girls dress and the panels on the base of my card. This paper is available as either a 6 x 6 paper pack or as digital paper depending on what you prefer. I also used brown & pink mini braddies which are also available from MFT Stamps.

The sentiment on the inside of my card is from the “Top Shelf Sentiments” which come free with the VIP kit today.


My second project today uses the new “Sheltering Tree” stamp set which is also released today along with the Sheltering Tree Digi Paper. Now I am sure any of you that know me know I love this set cause it has two cute owls hugging each other!

Recently at a stamp club I attend our project for the day was to create a box called the “Impossible Box” ….. so I decided to create one using this stamp set and the Shelter Tree digi paper.

MFT-Impossiblebox2-wm To create the base of the box I printed out the green digi paper from the digi kit at full size. I used my copic airbrush to apply the brown color to the back of the paper …. just on the top 1/3 of the paper so that when my box was closed I had a brown lid rather than white. Of course you could also print two different colors on the paper on either side.

I stamped the tree and the owls on white card, colored and cut them out and attached to my cloud paper panels which printed at a tiny size so I could get tiny clouds. That is the fun thing about digi paper you have control of the size you want the patterns. When I attached my tree I was careful to not apply foam tape to the top of the tree as the brown lid does come down over the cloud paper a little, as you can see in my first pic of this project.

MFT-Impossiblebox4-wm Here is another view of my box, you can see how the box opens at the top.

Well now it is time to say goodbye to me and hop on over to the marvellously talented Megan Lock's blog, to see what she has created.

Enjoy the rest of the hop and thanks for dropping by!
