Digital Designs Day and the WSC!!!

Today we at My Favorite Things, are working together to show you some of our NEW Digital Designs...and man are they FUN!! Today, we are releasing:

Halloween Dotty Papers
Bird House Template
Full Circle Treat Box Template
All-Season Wagon Template
Pumpkin Box Template

I decided to work with the Pumpkin Box Template. Now, here is the SUPER cool part about MFT's templates(especially for those of us that don't own fancy cutting machines), most if not all of MFT's templates include several versions to work with whichever software or machine you own...but they also include a cut and print file, for those of us still workin' da scissors!! LOL!! I don't have a fancy schmancy machine, so my template was cut out and put together, rather easily I might add!!

My base and lid were cut out of Orange Fizz cardstock, and my stem was cut out of Sour Apple cardstock(both from MFT). I added some Bo Bunny Googlie Eyes, and some Mark Richards bling for the mouth. My ribbons are a combination of MFT and SU ribbons.

So that my box wouldn't be lonely, and so that you all wouldn't think I had started to like 3-D projects, which I DON'T, I made a little 3x3 card to go along with it!!

THAT'S where the Wednesday Stamp Club challenge comes into play!! This week's challenge is to Play Dress Up....whether it's dressing up for Halloween, or a night on the town, we want to see you get dressed up!! I used my super cute little Ghostie from the Tiny Town set...I know, I'm obsessed with this set!!
So, want to see some more AMAZING stuff??? Head on over to Kim's blog, where she will have a master list of all the other designers playing along, at 11am EST!! Have fun!! Thanks for stopping by!!

For my card today, I used the layout of the inspiration piece to inspire mine, as well as placing buttons to mimic the white dots on the walls. My images are all from the Home Sweet Home Halloween Additions set. I colored them with my Copics, and layered them with Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Black Licorice. My ribbons are from SU, except for the black wide ribbon which came from MFT. My buttons are from Basic Grey, and my spiral clips is from Creative Express.
Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
