Want to WIN over $200 in stamps and Die-namics from MFT?

If you love My Favorite Things, then you won't want to miss out on our Guest Designer Challenge where you can WIN over $200 in stamps and Die-namics!  The winner joins us for our Wednesday Stamp Club challenges as well as Teaser Time for the following month's release.

And now, you've got a full month to enter your submission.  This month, the challenge is a sketch challenge!  How amazing is that?  Of course, I had to pull together a little sample for you using this fun little sketch.

I'm using the à la modes: Picture Perfect stamp set which I've paired with my new My Mind's Eye Indie Chic patterned paper.  My accents are all with the Black Licorice card stock, and just a smidge of Fossil Cardstock for my sentiment.  My Mini Tabs Foursome comes to the rescue for the second time this week. Really, they're pretty fantastic if you didn't pick them up yet.... My flower embellishment was created with the Pretty Posies Die-namics cut from a scrap of text printed paper.

I added a little touch on my patterned paper that I haven't done in a while. (I've been too afraid of messing up my nails.)  If you only secure the middle of your patterned papers, you'll be able to pry up the very outer edges after any stitching and lightly distress with your fingernail.  This is an especially cool effect with double sided paper.  You can even ink up those rumpled edges slightly too for a little extra dimension on those crumpled edges.  And besides, you don't need that much adhesive if you're sewing - it will serve only to junk up your sewing machine by sewing through that....

So, here's the details on the MFT Guest Designer Contest. But you'll find ALL the information on this thread. You can enter as many times as you would like, but you may enter ONLY a CARD. One card per entry. Submissions are due by June 4th at 12pm EST.  (Please note: this is 24 hours earlier than past deadlines as we need plenty of time to consider all of the entries.) 

My best advice is:

1) Take GREAT pictures of your project.
2) When posting on your blog, show us how YOU will represent MFT should you win the contest.
3) Put effort into your card. The prize is HUGE and the honor is HUGE.
4) Have fun!

We're looking for well- executed cards and great technical work.   Jody and I are the contest judges and will announce the winner at the Release Party on June 5th at 9:15pm EST.  The winner of the contest should plan to participate in 3 (of 5) Teaser Days as well as the release blog hop.

Here's the sketch for you to follow to play along, and I really really hope you will!

So cute, Joanne! I love this stamp - it's one of my faves and your card is absolutely picture perfect!

Well Joanne, I love your card and the strips of herringbone! And one of these days I'm going to have to start trying out for the DT -- based on how much I spend anyway! :)

Heather Jensen said... you are making me want those flower dies too! Darn it! I already have several of the flower die namics, now I need to add another to the list. Great sketch too! :)
