MFT Teasers Day 1 and A {Simple} Sketch For You To Try

Well, Saturday is finally here and I've got lots going on today on my blog (whenever I type that word, why do I always type "glob"?). So let's jump right in and get started. Let's see, I think I'm covering 3 bases today with this card--Jen's Sketch For You To Try, Day 1 of Teasers for My Favorite Things, and Jen and I are hosting MFT's Guest Designer contest this month and it's my sample for that as well. Yay me!

Taking a cue from the sentiment, I kept this card pure and simple. I used a new "DUO" from My Favorite Things called Polkadot Greetings/Frame Duo. It's another must have sentiment and frame stamp set/Die-namics Die that is only sold as a pair. This one is super easy to line up and stamp after cutting the die out and the greetings fit perfectly inside each of 3 frames included in the stamp set. I also am peeking another new Die-namics die called Button Quartet. I love this little flower button! The button dies are the perfect thing to reduce bulk on your cards for sending them in the mail, but still getting the look of buttons! Both of these new items will be available on October 6th.

Jen's sketch is a fast one this week, especially if you want to let a quote or sentiment take center stage. Speaking of taking center stage, now's your chance to compete for October's Guest Designer spot for My Favorite Things. We've come up with a color challenge and ya'll can find all the info about how to enter on our Splitcoast thread HERE.

Ok, as always, Kim has listed the MFT Design Team girls who are spotlighting this set and another one today over on her blog (glob) HERE. You don't want to miss out on all the happy goodness.

SUSIE Q-TIP: When using rhinestones or Swarovski Crystals, especially the teeny tiny teeninsy ones, place them where they are going to be stuck down with tweezers or a gel picker-upper-placer-downer. Then just push them slightly over with the tweezers again, one at a time and make a mental note as to where it was. Use a Quickie Glue Pen to dot some glue where its final destination is to be and pick them back up with the tweezers and adhere them. Do not answer the phone or pet your dog in between moving them and making that mental note. You WILL forget where you wanted your crystal and you WILL put your glue in the wrong place. Don't ask me how I know this. I don't want to talk about it.

See how fun this sketch is? Check out what my SFYTT sisters have done with it. I bet there's anywhere from more pure and simple to off the charts fabulousness to be found among them!
