MCT Favorite Stamps of the Month

Welcome to the studio and to another edition of Fave of the Month. This month's favorites are So Grateful For You and Home Sewn.

For my first project I made this quick and easy card using So Grateful For You. I also used the hearts from Happy Mail and Game Night, the small cloud speech bubble, and the potty people guy-die. Super simple.

I've used the adorable Home Sewn set to go with my pics of Gracie's sewing class in home school. Here she is learning to thread the sewing machine. :)

These camera shots are more true to the colors than the above scanned page. Not sure why it does that; I guess maybe because of the blast of light in there. Anyhoo.....  Embellishments using MCT stamps and dies. Index tab die with the needle (threaded for realsies!) and title sentiment from Home Sewn, layered hearts dies turned buttons with twine added, the stitched heart stamp also from Home Sewn, and the spool of thread with real thread again. :) I love those details.

This stick pin was a putrid color of magenta. I had no idea what I would ever do with it but tossed it in the drawer about a year ago waiting for inspiration to strike. Finally this page was what I needed! I dipped the ugly pin in versamark ink then in white embossing powder and's actually pretty now. LOL Added a silver bead, cute little flag and there you have it. :) Sentiment from Home Sewn and scissors from the Chunky Jar Accessories stamps. Love!
