An Apple for Teacher...

Hey there... doing a quick post with a card I made for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge (MFTWSC69).    I recently got the MFT ala' Mode An Apple for Teacher set and had been wanting to make a card with it ever since.  When the new sketch came out last Wednesday I knew I was going to use that set for my card.  I also used the new MFT Die-namcis Fishtail Flag Stax set and one of the little doilies from the Die-namics Mini Doilies set.  How cute is that little doily???  I just love so many of the MFT Die-namics dies... my collection of them is growing by the month!


I used some yummy papers from the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Howdy Doody 6x6 pad.  I have used up almost all the papers in the pad, but thankfully I have a new pad on its way to me, along with some other My Mind's Eye goodies.  I did a bit a paper piecing with the apple and then colored the rest of the image with Copic markers.  I tried to pull out some of the colors from the patterned paper, but not sure I succeed completely. I trimmed her out and popped her up on fishtail flag die cut from cork.  I'm really liking the added texture that cork brings to a project.   Button tied with twine was added to the center of the mini doily die cut.  Was so thankful I found a button that was fairly close to the peachy color I used as a mat!   Finished off the inside of the card, as well.

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Bazzill peach; PP:  My Mind's Eye; Stamps:  MFT; Dies:  MFT; Button:  PTI; Twine:  May Arts; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers

Hi, Rosemary! You've created another beauty with some fabulous MFT products! Even though I don't have any MFT dies or stamps, I do love seeing them used. Beautiful card!

I signed up yesterday to receive your posts via email, and today was the first one I received. YEAH!

I really love these stamps but just can't decide which to go for! The giant paper pieced apple is brilliant and loving all the wood and cork textures too :0)
