MFT Blog Hop Recap!!

Hey everyone and welcome to another My Favorite Things Release Blog Hop!! This month's hop started with Kim, so if you are here, and you haven't been there, better go there now to get started!! If you are here now, you should be coming from the SUPAH talented, Amy's blog!! I am the end of the hop this month, so on top of my projects that I have to share with you, you will find all the need to know info about this month's release and special promotions at the bottom of my post!! As always, if you have any questions, feel free to ask!!
My first project is with the SUPAH cute new Sweetie Pie Flopsey. I stamped Flopsey on an MFT Perfect Panel and then colored him in with my Copics. The pie and hat were stamped separately and the pie was popped up. I used Ruby Red and Baja Breeze cardstock from SU, and Spring Moss from PTI for my card. The DP is from the Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl line...one of my personal faves!! I used the SU modern label punch for my sentiment and the ribbons are from SU and PTI. My sketch is Jen's SFYTT from a week or two ago.
For my next card, I used the ADORABLE new Who's That Girl set, Santa Baby. I stamped my main image on an MFT perfect panel and then colored it with my Copics. I then added Liquid Applique to Santa's beard and cuffs to make them fluffy. The candy cane is part of the set and was colored and cut out separately. All my ribbons are from SU, as well as the brads. I used Riding Hood Red, Mellow Moss and Bashful Blue Cardstock and my DP is from Deja Views. I used the MFT 100th sketch for my layout as well.

MFTeaser- Garden Of Joy

Hello everyone, Happy Tuesday!! I know I have mentioned it before, but due to my new life situation, my stamping time has been suffering. It's not always that I don't have the time, because more often than not, I do, it's that I just don't know where to start and I get overwhelmed. Today, I KNEW I had to stamp(and to be truthful, I have a TON more to do), so I decided to start with today's SCS color challenge!! Today's challenge was to use Mellow Moss, White and Kraft or some Taupe-ish color. I chose to use Creamy Carmel. I am getting low on Kraft paper and now that I am no longer an SU demo, it is harder for me to replenish my stock, if ya know what I mean!! Today I also have a teaser of the new My Favorite Things set, Garden of Joy, which is being released tomorrow night!!
I started by stamping my main image on an MFT Perfect Panel. It was then colored with my Copics and layered with the challenge colors. I also added some Crystal Effects to the handle to make it shiny. The DP is from one of the SU Prints Packs, and all my ribbons(except the white) and brads are from SU. The white is from May Arts, and my spiral clips are from Joanne's. My card is 4x8, for anyone that is wondering!!
Well, that is it for me now!! Be sure to check out the MFT blog for all the happenings around MFT, and trust me, there are LOTS!! Tonight's Blog Hop starts at 9pm CST, so don't forget to come back and see what goodies I will have for you then!!

Have a great day!!
