MFT Guest Designer Contest – October 2012

Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a Happy World Card Making day. I spent mine working on my very first contest entry.

The card I am sharing with you today is for the Guest Designer contest at My Favorite Things (MFT) using the MFTGUESTDT1012 sketch.

About a year ago I discovered the Pure Innnocence collection of My Favorite Things stamps at my LSS.  The quality of the impression was important for my coloring and the price was great. I purchased my first stamp and used my Copics to color the girl with brown skin. I loved the result and how easy I could paper pierce or color them.  My crafting girlfriends liked the way I changed her ethnicity with color.  I was hooked from that day forward.

This is my entry for the MFT Guest Designer Contest.


My entry for the MFT Guest Designer Contest


Isn’t she so cute set among the leaves?

I love using this Die-Namic because it is the perfect size for all of my cards and the edges are so elegant.  I paper pierced the little girl’s shirt and colored her and her pants with my Copics.  I used dimensional adhesive to raise the wagon for a 3D effect.  The Jillibean Soup label was just begging to be used with this stamp  so I kindly obliged. Twine was my go to instead of ribbon to compliment the theme. I just had to use the blossom gem since it echoed the blossoms in her shirt and who could resist a little bling?


I put the pop dots to make the wagon 3D

  1. Brenda, I really love this card and that image is just way to cute. I have a couple of the images, but no new ones. I really need to check them out. You should enter a challenge a week just to get over your fear. Joynana

  2. She looks great among the leaves! It’s so great to see a stamp colored as something different than generic-white-person, I hope you have more up your sleeve!

  3. Lovely card Belinda I’ve got to ask, what are the colors of the markers you use to color your images! I want to get that down pack before I start buying markers willy nilly and dont apply them to the craft! Thanks Tamika
