A is for Apple


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. This week it is my turn to host the sketch.


For my card this week I decided to create a thank you Teacher card using the Die-namics Red Delicious as the focal point. On the front of the apple I used the letter “A” from the Die-namics Bottom Line Alphabet set. Under the letter “A” I used part of a sentiment from the Pure Innocence Caramel Apple stamp set.

My card uses Wild Cherry card, Kraft card and Factory Green card.

Along the left side of my card I added three banners which were created using the Die-namics Fishtail Banner set. On the top layer of the banner I have used one of the borders from the LLD Border It - Mod Borders stamp set using Wild Cherry ink.

On top of the banner I used Factory Green Buttons and Hemp Cord.


Here is the inside of my card. Along the bottom of my card I used one of the borders from the LLD Border It - Mod Borders stamp set using Wild Cherry ink. I added the letters “A B C” along the top of the border using the Die-namics Bottom Line Alphabet set and Black Licorice card.

On the top left hand corner I added one of the sentiments from the Clearly Sentimental about Teaching stamp set and Black Licorice ink.

Here are the MFT Products I used on my card today:


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 2013.
