New Year! New WSC!

MFT is super excited to announce that the Wednesday Stamp Club will now be centered around a weekly sketch. We know your stamping time is precious, and we want you to maintain as much creative freedom as possible. Sketches are the perfect starting point to a card. Use it as a blueprint, and create a card using the stamp set and supplies that strike your fancy. You can turn to the sketches time and again for creative inspiration.

A new sketch will be posted each Wednesday at midnight on the MFT blog. You'll also find the sketch in the MFT forum on SCS on Wednesday morning, as well as in the weekly newsletter. Our talented Challenge and Design Teams will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

We encourage you all to play along, and to enter your card in the weekly draw for a $15 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique. Simply follow the sketch and create a card or other paper creation. You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish. Each week, a keyword is assigned to the sketch. All you need to do to enter, is upload your card to the gallery at SCS, and enter the given keyword in the keyword box, during the upload process. After the deadline, we randomly choose a winner from that week's entries and the winner will receive a $15 gift voucher. If the winning card uses MFT stamps, the participant will earn a $5 bonus, for a total of a $20 gift voucher! That is up to $100 per month in prizes, JUST for playing along. We hope you'll join us in 2011.

You can stop by Kim's Blog to see the list of all the designers sharing projects with the sketch.

I am very excited about the new weekly sketch! I just love a good sketch as my starting point! This cute little PI is called Because You're Special. She is colored with Copics, the background is sponged, and I added a small pearl to her flower. The sentiment is included in the set.

I used the new Mini Rolled Roses die and felt to create my flower. This is the larger of the two dies.

I kept the inside simple, just stamping the cute little PI's face!


Thanks,

Melody
