Celebrate MFT Customer Blog Hop

My Favorite Things has decided to start a Customer Blog hop each month - to recognize some outstanding contributions using My Favorite Things stamps. The natural time to do it seemed to be Celebrate MFT Day on the 20th of each month! Each month, between five and eight stampers will be invited to the Celebrate MFT Blog Hop – and the participants will be a secret until the day of the party!

So you can imagine my excitement when Joanne sent me an email asking me to included in the first group. I have had a smile on my face all week! If you just happened upon my blog, and want to start at the beginning, the hop is kicked off by Joanne!

One of my niece's is having a birthday this month and I want to get a little something off in the mail to her. So I pulled out my MFT set "The Poppies". This is just the cutest set! I stamped up two of the three little rockers and used one of the MFT 16 ounce squared jars.


For the card I used the drummer and stamped the cute skull on the middle of the drum. She is colored in Copics and I added a few rhinestones to her drum set and the bow. The pink section is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. After glueing down my layout I added some zig zag and straight stitching with my sewing machine. I added the sentiment, some polka dot ribbon, and some eyelet lace. Then I punched out some of the circles from the DP and popped them up.



A while back I had ordered this square 16oz square jar from My Favorite things. I can think of so many used for these cute jars! I used the second image I had colored and used my nestibilities to cut out the circle. The are lime green Stickles on her dress. Then I cut a band from the DP to go around the jar and added some matching ribbon. Then I decorated the top of the jar.

Here is a closer look at the top. Again I used my nestibilities to cut the circles and my punches to punch out the skull.

To continue on hop on over the Bonnie's blog, another talented MFT stamper!
