MFT June Blog Hop and Shop!

Welcome to the June MFT Blog Hop and Shop!! If you came here from Jody's Blog you are in the right place. If you want to start at the beginning of the hop go on over to Kim's Blog.

The new stamp set I am working with is What a Day! It is a little sentiment set that just has lots of words and phrases that come in handy when you are looking for the perfect sentiment.

One of my favorite sentiments in the set is "I only stamp on days that end in y"! It inspired me to make myself a little sketch book for my desk, where I can jot down ideas, sketches, cute embellishment, etc.

I covered the journal in a piece of Graphics 45 DP that I have been saving for some special. I stamped the image, Who's That Digital Girl, colored with Copics and paper pieced her dress. I sewed around the edges and sponged on some distressing ink. Then I added the sentiment.

At the bottom of my book I used the Scalloped Scallops and Jumbo Scallop Dies, for my border. Then I stamped the days of the week, which are included in the set, on Kraft, and added a little more stitching. I love how it came out!

Next up I used another sentiment from the set along with the new PI, A Cart Full of Friends. She is also colored with Copics and her dress is paper pieced. The sentiment is stamped on the larger cloud in the Cloud Trio Die Cut, embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, and sponged with distressing ink.

I used the new Die-namics Fresh Cut Grass Die and the MFT Felt to make my grass. I finished the card off with a little lace.

Here the inside. I stamped the days of the week, ran it through my Cuttlebug and sponged the edges. Sewing and another border with the Scalloped Scallop Die finish the inside.

Hope you have enjoyed this month's fun release!!! Now it is time to hop on over to Frances's Blog. I know she will have something wonderful to share!
