Hi everyone,

It’s time for another Wednesday Stamp Club over on the MFT Stamps Member Forum of SCS.

MFT is super excited to announce that Wednesday Stamp Club will now be centered around a weekly sketch. We know your stamping time is precious, and we want you to maintain as much creative freedom as possible. Sketches are the perfect starting point to a card. Use it as a blueprint, and create a card using the stamp set and supplies that strike your fancy. You can turn to the sketches time and again for creative inspiration.
A new sketch will be posted each Wednesday at midnight on the MFT blog. You'll also find the sketch in the MFT forum on SCS on Wednesday morning, as well as in the weekly newsletter. Our talented Challenge and Design Teams will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.
We encourage you all to play along, and to enter your card in the weekly draw for a $15 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique. Simply follow the sketch and create a card or other paper creation. You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish. Each week, a keyword is assigned to the sketch. All you need to do to enter, is upload your card to the gallery at SCS, and enter the given keyword in the keyword box, during the upload process. After the deadline, we randomly choose a winner from that week's entries and the winner will receive a $15 gift voucher. If the winning card uses MFT stamps, the participant will earn a $5 bonus, for a total of a $20 gift voucher! That is up to $100 per month in prizes, JUST for playing along. We hope you'll join us in 2011.

This week it is my turn to host the challenge! Upload your creation to the SCS gallery using keyword MFTWSC1 for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate! You have until noon Tuesday, January 7th to take part.

For my card today I used one of the new Pure Innocence sets that MFT Stamps released yesterday. This one is called Peek-a-Boo … cute eh! I paper pieced the little girls dress and also added two red mini brads where the buttons are. The scallops at the top of my card were created using the MFT Die-namics small scallop border die.



Here is the inside of my card. I stamped the little girl again in the corner of my card. The sentiment is layered using the Die-namics Layered Label Die, which was also released yesterday.
