MFT Wednesday Stamp Club {cool beans}


This cool chick is from the newest stamp line released at My Favorite Things last night called Doodle Garden. This particularly cute set is called Far Out and she makes me giggle every time I lay eyes on her...so.stinking.cute, and she's always looking at the glass half full in her 'rose colored glasses'!

 I have to tell you a little story about her paper pieced bell-bottoms. When I was in grade school, a new girl moved into our neighborhood, and she always had the coolest stuff: beautiful wavy hair, a Schwinn bike AND pink & purple plaid Toughskins jeans that were way.cool.! The best thing about Terri was that she was and is one of those really good persons, with or without all her 'cool stuff'.  So, the first time I saw Far Out, I knew I had to put the inspiration of my childhood friend to work.

I've had a collection of blank rings sitting on my stamp table for about a month now purchased from Pick Your Plum about a year ago. I decided to pair up a few extra blooms I'd cut from the new Die-namics Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose die and make a matching ring for my card. A giant pink gemstone fits perfectly in the center of the flower for one fun and fancy-schmancy ring!

It was hard to photograph the ring, and I thought about taping a 'HSN type' video to model my new ring, but alas, no time for a manicure, so I scrapped that idea!

And, finally, a shot of the finished inside using the new Die-namics Layered Heart Border and tab from Accent It - Labels and Tabs in coordinating colors and papers. For this week's MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch (keyword: MFTWSC106) head on over to the MFT Blog along with a full list of this week's participants. 

Thanks again for stopping by for this week's MFT Teasers, New Product Tour and today's WSC card! I've loved being part of the MFT family the past month and look forward to playing along with their weekly sketch and more!
