Swing your partner 'round and 'round,
We're gettin ready for MFT's Harvest Hoedown.
There's a new MFT challenge out called So You Think You Can Stamp? There's $750 worth of prizes to be won!! Yahoo!!!
I totally stepped outside my comfort zone for this week's challenge, complete with migraine meds, and tried a swinging/suspension card since I've never made one of those before. So, I pulled out my trusty Marvy punches and dusted off my coluzzle (yes, I still have one). Since my migraine sent me to the doctor on Friday again, I figured the easiest way to stamp was digital, I printed off the "I'm pullin for you Flopsy" twice, then colored him with prismacolor markers before punching him out with a Marvy mega scallop punch. Small challenge: I cut off his ears. So much for working on migraine meds. *rolls painful eyes* So now I had to pull out my stamp set of I'm pullin for you and stamp Flopsy twice again in memento ink and color once again, and then I had a lightbulb moment - there's a grass stamp in the set so it could be the tops of carrots, radishes, or any other type of veggie growing from the ground. Cool beans! Just not the actual beans.
So, then I punched out pumpkin pie, and lavender lace cardstock with my Marvy giga & super giga punches, and punched a hole in my card with the super giga punch; then stamped the front of my card with PTI artichoke ink. After cutting my stamped flopsy out and adhering with dimensionals, I made him "hang" for all of my troubles :) so he could spin to his hearts delight. lol A Jody ribbon on the top left corner finished the outside of the card.
For the inside of my card, I printed off Stephanie Fizer's digital Autumn paper and added some seed packets from the Gardner Flopsey set to finish it off.
