Thank You DOC

The MFT Guest Designer Contest is on now, and it's a sketch this month. So I thought I'd play along and give a little inspiration in case you're on the fence about participating (which you should definitely hop off and start stamping because the prize is A-mazing!!!). Read all the details of the Guest Designer Contest in this thread.


I used Pure Innocence World's Best Doctor to create this masculine thank you card. I received some new goodies from I {heart} Papers and I dug into the October Afternoon 9 to 5 patterned paper right away.

I paper pieced the doctor's lab coat. I know they're not usually so colourful, but this is stampy world and I can make things any colour I want, right? The rest of the image was coloured with copic markers. I used the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics to cut out the cream flag for the sentiment. I embellished it with a Sour Apple star which I cut out using the Stacking Stars Die-namics, along with a yellow button and some Honey Dew twine. I used my diamond plate embossing folder to add texture to the blue polka dot paper then sanded it a little to reveal the white core.

The banners were fun to create using a combination of patterned paper, Orange Fizz, and Sour Apple card stocks, along with the Mix & Match Banners Die-namics, the Circle 2 STAX Die-namics, and the By the Letters Uppercase Die-namics. The base layer is Blue Raspberry card stock.

I hope you'll take the challenge and get stamping with this sketch. But hurry, time will run out in about a week.

Here are the Die-namics I used:

That's what I love about "stampy world"...you CAN make anything ANY color you want. Love how colorful this whole card is....and I definitely need to get those letter dies. I see an MFT shopping trip in my future.
