Add some bling!

Hello! I am so excited to be hostessing my first SCS My Favorite Things Forum Challenge. You know I love My Favorite Things stamps, but sometimes I need a little push to use all that I have. To that end, Toni (Toners) and I will be taking turns featuring a Who's That Girl Stamp every Monday. This week it's the stamp set Rain or Shine with some added bling. I wanted to use the set a little differently so I chose the umbrella. I stamped it with VersaMark and Pumpkin Pie onto PTI white cs. I embossed it 2 times with clear ep and then a third time with Iridescent Ice ep for a pretty shimmery effect. I added some Platinum Stickles under the umbrella. The raindrops were also embossed with shimmery ep. It's so hard to capture how shimmery this card is IRL. If you have this stamp set and want to play along use the keyword MFTWTG1 when uploading to SCS. If you upload your card by Wednesday at Midnight you will be entered to win a $5 MFT store gift certificate.

Some of the MFT Design Team girls played along, go check out their stuff!


In addition to the challenge Toni and I are hosting, the rest of the team is busy with keeping fun things going on for each day of the week...

Mondays: Play along with Who’s That Girl?
Tuesdays: Find out more about MFT crew and fans on Thread Starter Tuesday
Wednesdays at 9pm EST: Chat it up MFT style!
Thursday: Get a little sketchy
Friday: a little Oldie PLUS Goodie

In case you want a head start (or order your set's:), here's the line up for the next 3 weeks

Time for Bubbly (Sept. 22)

Let's Go For a Walk (Sept. 29)

Meet Me at the Cafe (Oct. 6)

but you will have to wait for that day to see what the challenge is for that stamp;)

Thanks for stamping by!
