Today I'm thrilled to be playing along, I've used this week's Wednesday Stamp Club sketch for inspiration, and I'm previewing the new Fly a Kite Die-namics Die as well as a spectacular new set, The Great Outdoors.
If you're not already playing along in the Wednesday Stamp Club you are missing out! Here's this week's sketch, and you'll want to play along each week, for a chance to win up to a $20 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique!
Here's a closer look at the fabulous new Fly a Kite Die-namic. You'll see there is the main kite body, four panels for your kite, and the sweet kite tail. I cut my main kite with Saffron cardstock, then cut out the panels from patterned paper. I did a mixy-matchy with the panels for a little extra interest. This is a *fun* way to use up those tiny paper scraps too!
This new stamp set set is just filled with sentiments specifically designed to ccoordinate with your "collection" of Die-namics dies for a fun, and scrappy card. This one reads "A cloudy day is no match for a sunny disposition. William Arthur Ward"
I combined a little bit of felt, some of the My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy patterned paper and a piece of ledger paper, and lotsa, lotsa sewing. I added a bit of Divine Twine for the kite string and added two tiny kite tails with the help of glue dots.
I finished off the inside with the new Layered Labels Die (if you didn't already pick this one up, trust me, you'll *need* it!) and added a Die-namics Sunshine. I used only two of the three layers of the label, but that's what great is that they work amazing either together or in pieces!
With the crazy amount of snow in Boston here this winter, I'm already itchy for spring. Just looking at these sweet clouds, kite, glowing sun and cheery sentiments remind me that in time... it will be here.
