Celebrate MFT Idol Top Ten

This is my project for Week One of the MFT Idol. Much to my surprise I made it into the Top 10! There were so many wonderful entries. The theme this week is Celebration, show how happy you are to be in the Top 10. So after racking my brain for days, I used the MFT Meet Me at the Cafe for my project. What would a celebration be without a pretty party invitation, a toast for the occasion, and maybe even a party favor! Be sure to hop on over to Splitcoaststampers in the MFT forum to vote for your favorite! You have from 10:00 pm EST tonight to 10:00 pm EST on Wednesday to cast your vote.

My Celebration set includes an invitation, a bottle gift holder, and a party favor box. I used DP from October Afternoon to set my color theme. One of the things I just love about MFT stamps is that you that you can take them so many different directions, from elegant to whimsical, and for so many different age groups, from young adults to Grandmothers!

This is my invitation to the party. The dress and skirt are paper pieced. I colored with Copics. I added velvet rick rack and some MFT ribbon. The edges are distressed with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Tea Dye. The awning is cut from a piece of flocked paper. I inked up my Cuttlebug folder before embossing.

Here is the inside of my invitation. I glass stamp is from MFT Time of Bubbly.

I have had this bottle gift holder is my stash for awhile and decided to give it a try. I covered with DP from October Afternoon and did all the distress with Tea Dye distressing ink. I stamped the MFT image and cut in half. I used the SU scallop punch for my edging and added more black velvet rick rack. The I stamped "CELEBRATE" with the Bling "bet and added lots of rhinestones.



I also made a party favor box with some extra DP. Thanks so much for stopping by! I feel very honored to be in the Top Ten! Remember to stop by Splitcoaststampers and vote for your favorite.
