You’re a Reel Expert!


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 first Wednesday of the month it is my turn to host the sketch.


For my card this week I am using one of the new stamp sets which will be released next week on Tuesday 11th June. The stamp set is Pure Innocence Gone Fishin’ … isn’t she a cutie. I paper pieced her top using designer paper.

I stamped her onto white card which I cut into a circle using the Die-namics Circle STAX Set 1. I  also cut another circle using the Die-namics Circle STAX Set 2 and Red Hot card stock for the larger base circle on the sketch.

For the sentiment I used the Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX and cut a piece from Red Hot card stock and vellum. I stamped the sentiment on the vellum and then attached this over the red piece. I also cut another set of legs/feet for the girl and sandwiched that between the two layers so they could be seen.

The flower was created using the Die-namics Layered Rose with a Red Hot Button and Hemp Cord.

The base of my card is Blu Raspberry card stock.


Here is the inside of my card. I stamped another of the sentiments that is included in the Pure Innocence Gone Fishin’ stamp set. The fish are also included in this stamp set and I stamped them along the bottom using Blu Raspberry ink.

For the border piece on the right hand side I used the new Die-namics Peek –A-Boo Dots and Red Hot card stock.

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.
