MFT Preview - Gifty Girl

The MFT Teasers for November have started, and I am so EXCITED to be the Guest Designer this month! AND you are going to love this release. This is the second day of sneak peeks, leading up to the release on Wednesday night. The set I am previewing today is "Gifty Girl". She was previously released as part of a MFT kit, but now she can be purchased as a single stamp.

She is stamped with Memento Ink, colored with my copics, and the dress and the shopping bags are paper pieced. This is new DP I recently picked up at my local LSS. I love the fall colors and the mix of patterns. I added a border punch accent, some lace up the side, tied a ribbon, and added a button, tied with twine, and a tag with a sentiment from the set.

I think this stamp set if so perfect for giving a gift card! On the inside of my card I made a pocket with some of the same elements I used on the front of the card and stamped another sentiment from the set. I added a piece of DP to the left side of the card to give it a finished look.

Don't forget to hop around to visit all the designers on the team today, you'll find samples from Kim, Frances, Jessie, Joanne, Cindy, and Christina.

Would you like to be next month's Guest Designer? The challenge for this month is going on now in the MFT forum at Splitcoaststampers! The challenge this month is to use white as the primary color.

Thanks for stopping by,
Melody
