Birthday Wishes


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 used MFT Stamps new Lisa Johnson Designs Peaceful Wildflowers stamp set and also Lisa Johnson Designs Wildflowers Die-namics.

The base of my card uses the new Die-namics Mini Album Square Scallop Stax and Red Hot cardstock. To make this into a folded card I folded my cardstock first before die cutting it and then placing the fold just in from the straight edge of the Die-namics die.

I have also used the Mona Pendleton Design Distressed Background Blocks and Red Hot Ink to create the background on both the base panel and the white rectangle panel. I am loving these new background stamps and I know you will too Smile.

The Wildflowers have been stamped using Steel Blue Ink and Red Hot Ink. The circles were all created using the Die-namics Circle STAX Set 1 and Die-namics Circle STAX Set 2 using Smooth White card and Steel Blue card.

The Steel Blue ribbon strip was created using the new Die-namics Blueprints 3 set.


Here is the inside of my card. I used the Die-namics Heirloom Label which has been stamped using the Mona Pendleton Design Distressed Background Blocks and Red Hot Ink. I sponged Steel Blue ink around the edge of the label.

For the sentiment  I stamped this onto one of the Fishtail Ribbons from the Die-namics Blueprints 2 set.

Here are the MFT Supplies I used to create 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.
