Good Times with My Favourite Things!!


I'm so excited to share my first stampin' creation as a Design Team Member for My Favorite Things!!! Heehee!! I had so much fun yesterday inkin' up these stamps, I gotta tell ya! I've loved Meet Me at the Cafe since it was released and it was the first set I had to play with on my 'me' day!! (Remember how I said that I was stampin' just for me??)

Well, I knew that I wanted to paper piece these lovely ladies' outfits, so I found some awesome SEI patterned papers from the Sweetie line which has some great corals, pinks and soft sky, believe it or not! So then I looked around my studio (okay, really it's just a small spare bedroom, crammed full of all my paper, inks, tools and embellishments.....and two desks, two bookshelves and a computer) and my eyes landed on an unopened box on the floor (yes, the floor....nevermind)that I got on my last trip to Michael's. I had to use my 50% off coupon on something, so I picked up a box of Glittered cards by DCWV. Well, one of the colours in there is this gorgeous light coral colour, just a shade lighter than Cameo Coral and the whole front of the cards are covered in GLITTAH baby!! It was perfect!

Anyhoo, I started by stamping the image of the ladies at the cafe on Fabriano watercolour paper in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and after finding the right combo of the patterned papers (that took me the most time), I coloured the rest of the scene in using my SU markers. I stamped the awning on Cameo Coral cardstock and stamped some black polka dots on it using Itty Bitty Backgrounds. I framed the scene with Basic Black cardstock and then made a cute scalloped piece for the top of the card with some more black and added Soft Sky stitched grosgrain ribbon across the top. I stamped the sentiment Good Times on some Soft Sky and punched it out using my large oval punch, pop dotting it and adding some tiny Prima flowers that were a perfect match! Then, to finish it all off, I added some clear rhinestones by Heidi Swapp in the middles of the flowers and made the wine all sparkly with my Sakura Stardust gel pen!

I'm overjoyed with the way it turned out.....I just hope it stacks up against the other MFT DT members.....a bit of nail biting here....what do you think?? Do you like??

Anyway, today is Celebrate MFT day today over at Splitcoast. The challenge is just to create a card or project using your My Favorite Things stamps!! It happens on the 20th of every month!! Go on over and join in the fun!!!

Oh and hey, I've got some more cool MFT designs for you to see....so come on back!!
