Hello {MFTWSC109}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 109.

I flipped this week's sketch because I really wanted to use the brand new Trellis and Vine Die-namics, which is part of the MFT February release and will be available for purchase on Feb 4th.

I started with a card base of Sweet Tooth then added a layer of Kraft and Grapesicle. I ran the Grapesicle layer through my swiss dots embossing folder then added a green patterned paper from the Lilybee Design Picket Fence collection.

I used the Trellis and Vine Die-namics to cut out the Sweet Tooth trellis then cut the vines from Kraft cardstock. The flowers were cut from Grape Jelly cardstock and the leaves from Sour Apple. I added some clear rhinestones to the center of each flower for a little sparkle.

For the horizontal element I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics to cut out the Sweet Tooth flag then stamped the sentiment from Finishing Flourishes using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. I wanted another pop of purple so I used the Sentiment Strips Die-namics to cut out the Grape Jelly flag. I didn't want the purple to show through the trellis though so I cut out the middle and only used the ends of the flag.

TIP: The Sweet Tooth fishtail flag wasn't long enough to reach across the card and cut the other end into a flag so I simply cut out two flags and had them meet behind the left side of the trellis where the joint wouldn't show.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from Finishing Flourishes using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

There's a prize each week for one participant, chosen at random. You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish. Each week a keyword is assigned to the sketch, and this week's keyword is MFTWSC109. All you need to do to enter is upload your card to the gallery at Splitcoast and enter the given keyword in the keyword box during the upload process. After the deadline (noon Eastern on Tuesday) we randomly choose a winner from that week's entries and the winner will receive a $15 gift voucher. If the winning card uses MFT stamps, the participant will earn a $5 bonus, for a total of a $20 gift voucher!
