MFT Wednesday Stamp Club

Hello!  It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another fun sketch challenge from MFT!  Here's a look at the sketch:

I made a card using Complimentary Greetings after I received the sweetest note from my daughter's teacher yesterday and I just had to make something special for her (this just shows you how last minute I really do stamp, haha!)  She makes me so proud and honestly, she makes me look like a fabulous parent - she's always kind to her teammates and classmates and she has this sense of humor that always cracks me up.  Quick as a whip!  

I started with a Kraft Card Stock base and some Collectable "Notable" 6x6 papers from My Mind's Eye.  I stamped the sentiment on Whip Cream Card Stock in Kraft Ink (have you noticed how much I LOVE this color??) and cut it out with a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics.  I used some Tangy Orange Buttons to embellish the flag.

I used the Open Hexagon Borders Die-namics as my vertical element and I filled in the negative spaces with various patterns from the Notable paper pack. 

On the inside of the card, I stamped another sentiment in Kraft Ink and then used more of the hexagons to fill space in the lower corner. 

Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for a complete list of designers playing along in this week's Stamp Club.

And you can find these fantastic items waiting for you in the MFT Boutique:

  1. Love this! Thanks for keeping it real too! I often create last minute as well.

  2. Hi Karen I haven't been blogging lately and just got back into my routine and you are always tops on my list for blogs to visit to get great inspiration. Your card is just so fabulous. You are so creative. LOVE it! I only have a few MFT stamps but I think I'm going to have to change that. They have so many cute stamps and dies. Thanks again for sharing your creativity.
