Welcome to MFT's VIP hop for August. The VIP kit is now available in the store until midnight Wed. or while quantities last. This is your chance to get this month's "Who's That Girl" set two weeks early as well as some other fun new products in a kit. If you've come here by way of Kim's blog you're right on track! If you've just stumbled upon my post, then you'll want to go back to Kim's blog to start at the beginning!
I LOVE this month's Who's That Girl! I love the bigger scale, and all the things that you can stamp in her basket, and her sassy sentiments. Because peaches are my very favorite, I chose to use them for my card. It's still a touch early here for local peaches, but when I was visiting Niagara-On-The-Lake I picked up some yummy peach jam at Greaves. It's an institution in NOTL and has been making yummy jams & jellies forever! I always pick some up when we're there.Can I tell you how easy it is to line up this set? Every time I've used this set I've been able to match up the basket with its contents perfectly! I love it! I paired my peaches with some DCWV Cafe Mediterranean papers and was so excited to pull out my Banner Day Die. I hung my banner from a couple of yummy buttons from the Earth Girl scoop. I added a bit of a basket weave texture on my basket by drawing it in with my colorless blender.
I finished off the inside of the card with some matching patterned papers cut with Die-Namics dies and a sentiment from the Framed Greetings stamp set. I also stamped some more peaches along the bottom border of the panel and quickly coloured them.
I made a woven basket from cardstock to hold my jar of peach jam. Actually - I should say "we". My best friend is here visiting and she assembled the basket after I cut and sponged the pieces - it was a joint effort! I used the Framed Greetings die and a sentiment from the Who's That Girl set for the front of the basket.
