MFT Wednesday Stamp Club

Hi there, it's Wednesday, so that means it's My Favorite Things' Wednesday Stamp Club day! Are you ready to play with a new sketch? Well this past week I have been able to get so many newly CHA released pretty papers in my hand, so for today I used brand new Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe line.

It comes with gorgeous buttons and all and while I purchased the buttons, I also just received my MFT Die-namics Buttons dies on Monday, and I wanted to recreate the buttons that came with the Emma's Shoppe line. So here is my card which uses a sweet Butterfly Kisses PI.

I started coloring her in during my Copic Certification class last Sunday, but I really wanted to do paper piecing on her and also wanted to use my Luminarte Twinkling H2O's to paint her wings in and I am happy the way she turned out.  Hope you like her as much as I do.  

And now let's talk about the button you see on the pretty flower.  Here is a close up of it.

So, I used the Button Quartet Die-namics. I cut it out once with regular card stock and also with chipboard, as I really wanted a sturdy button.  Once I cut them out, I painted my card stock button with Twinkling H2O's and also started painting little flowers on it.  Once they were dry, I just glued them together with liquid glue.  Again, I was inspired by the Emma's Shoppe buttons, which are sooo super sweet!  Of course now I may just hoard them, as I can make something like them..LOL  As a final touch I added some yummy Twinery Twine. So, what do you think???  Like, no like????

Ok, so here is the list of the dies I used on this card.  I know you want to know, right???  

Make sure you stop at Kim's blog for the sketch and the list of the MFT gals who are playing along this week.  Then head on over to the MFT forum at SCS and upload your card using the keyword  MFTWSC10You could be the lucky winner of a $15 voucher to spend at the store and if you use MFT stamps, than you could win $20!  

Now, before I go...I want to invite you for this Sunday.  Join me to create anything with Butterflies and link it up to my blog post using MR Linky.  The post will go live Sunday at Midnight EST and you can link to it anytime during Sunday, so everyone can see.  Won't that be fun???  If you love Butterflies, like I do, join us!!!

Well, that is it for today! Have a FABULOUS day!!!
