MFP Blog Hop - Day Three and Stampin'B's Challenge #93

Welcome to the MFP January Blog Hop! This month, we are releasing 4 NEW SETS!


And…LOOK for the WINNERS of the Blog Hop Saturday!

Our New Sets are: In the Forest, Happy Pansies, Sew What, and Floral Tea.For your convenience, all 4 stamp sets are available for purchase TODAY!

For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, (a set that will be released NEXT month), visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs TODAY. On Saturday, January 15, 2011, a winner will be chosen from those participants who visited all the blogs listed for today. (There will be four different winners, one winner for each day of the blog hop. You DO NOT have to comment every day. However, the more days you comment, the more chances you have to win!) If you miss a day, you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning.

My card for today's set, Sew What?, also doubles as my entry in the Stampin'B's challenge, which is to use a die cut -- in my case the Nestabilities Petite Ovals.



I stamped the dress form with Palette Nude and then colored the skirt using Copic markers. I found some DP with the same dark stripes and used it for the background.



My second project is a pincushion, which I made from a Prima flower container and some polka-dotted material. I stamped several of the smaller images on a long piece of white cardstock and glued it around the container, adding some red rick rack to the bottom and the lid.

Be sure to check out the blogs of the rest of the Design Team to see what they did with this set, which I think is my favorite this month.
