MFT Wednesday Stamp Club

Hi!  It's time for another fabulous MFT sketch to get that crafty mojo kicking in.  First, here is a look at the sketch:

This week I used Pure Innocence Good Fortune -

Pin It

I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Choice Snow White cardstock and colored her with Copic markers.  I stamped her again on On the Bright Side Two 6x6 papers from My Mind's Eye and then paper pieced her kimono.  Since her shape is more square, I decided to let her be the focal point and fussy-cut her out and placed her directly over the patterned paper.  I used the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics to cut out the sentiment flag and then I added some Mini Rolled Roses Die-namics in Blue Skies Felt in the corner with Sour Apple Felt leaves from the Prima Donna Petals Die-namics set.

The inside is simply stamped with a sentiment from the PI Good Fortune stamp set and then I used the same On the Bright Side Two papers to decorate the inside.  I used the Open Scallop Edge Die-namics to create the scallop border, and then sewed around the borders.

Be sure to stop by Kim's blog for a list of all the designers playing along in this week's Wednesday Stamp Club challenge!

Here are the Die-namics I used on today's card:
