Circus Spectacular!

MFT Circus wm

Hi everyone,

It’s Wednesday which means it’s time for this week’s Wednesday Stamp Club sketch over on the MFT Stamps Member Forum of SCS. Being the 1st Wednesday of the month, it is my turn to host the challenge.


For my card this week I have used the other stamp set which is being featured today by MFT Stamps….. Lisa Johnson’s Circus Spectacular Die-namics and Stamp set , this is such a fun stamp set. This set will be released with all the other new release stamps and Die-namics on Tuesday 7th August.

The circus tent is stamped and layered using the Die-namics Circle STAX Set 1 and Die-namics Circle STAX Set 2.  For the giraffe I used the matching giraffe Die-namics which is part of the set to cut it out. The tickets on the right side of my card use one of the tickets from the stamp set and these were stamped onto a piece I die cut using the new Die-namics Ticket Strip (this co-ordinates with Circus Spectacular). The Arrow is from the Die-namics Lead the Way set … love how fun this die set is!

Here is the inside of my card. I stamped the Elephant onto the right side of my card. I added the greeting which is stamped onto one of the sections using the Die-namics Ticket Strip.


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 2012.
