MFT - I Simply Adore You

Do y’all know what I simply adore? MFT Stamps...especially their Dienamics! I have been wanting to participate in the MFT Stamps Monthly Guest Designer Contest for awhile now. Since I had some “hurricane days” off from school while we rode out Hurricane Isaac, I made several cards in my stamp room to pass the time while we were without power. This was one of them. Oh, I had to do the sewing after the power came back on. ;) That's true stamping right there. LOL!

This is a stamp set that I have had for quite some time, and I am glad I finally got a chance to use this sweet little Pure Innocence Being Cute is What I Do stamp set because she is a cutie-pa-tootie!! I colored her with Copic markers. My card layout is the contest sketch. The papers are from the Simple Stories Fabulous line…one of my favorites! I even paper-pieced her top with coordinating paper. I stamped the sentiment on a little white cardstock that I cut out with the MFT Oval Tab Dienamics. I embellished my card with lots of stitching, a little lace, a few rhinestones, and a felt flower that I made using the MFT Rolled Scallop Flower Dienamics.

I am so happy with how this card turned out! I love when that happens because I don’t always like the cards I make.

If you’d like to play along in the contest, too, you can check out all the details over at the MFT Forum at Split Coast Stampers.
