My Favorite Things Stamps...October Guest DT Contest and a little Blog Candy!


Hello stampin' friends! Thanks for stopping by today! I made a card with the great sketch that we have this month for The My Favorite Things Guest Designer Contest! The October Guest DT Contest is up and running and the winner will receive over $200 in stamp sets and Die-namics, AND have the opportunity to play along with the design team for the next release and all the Wednesday Stamp Club Challenges for the next month. MFT always has amazing stamp sets around the corner and getting (and stamping with) them early is a special treat.
Once again, the challenge will be a sketch challenge, and you have until October 8 at 12pm EST to submit your entry.  Be sure to check the THIS POST for the full contest details.
Here’s the sketch to get you started, we can’t wait to see what you come up with.  Be sure to include the keyword, MFTGUESTDT1012, in your upload to the Gallery at Splitcoaststampers.


I have some yummy Blog Candy to give away today! I used this cute PI Home Sweet Home stamp on my card and if you would like a chance to win a PI Home Sweet Home Stamp set, a Simply Scallop Border Die-namics, Bubblegum Grosgrain Replenishments Ribbon and the AC 6x6 paper pad that I've used on this card, then please enter my Blog Candy in the link tool below.

For my card, I coloured the PI Home Sweet Home girl with my Copics and paper pieced her outfit. I also used the Rounded Banner STAX Die-namics as per the sketch and added a little brad to be the door knob. I cut apart a Large Fancy Flourish cut from Hot Fudge Heavyweight card stock. I added some pretty Bubblegum Grosgrain ribbon and tied a Kraft button on with the fab Hemp cord. The sentiment from the set is stamped on Kraft card cut with the Dog Tag Die-namics.   


Here is the inside...I stamped the PI girl again and used my all time fave Layered Labels Die-namics for the sentiment panel. I stamped one of the other sentiments from the set on Kraft card cut with the ribbon die from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics and tucked a few more pieces of the Large  Fancy under the panel.


Here is a pic of the Blog Candy that I have up for grabs!

 All you have to do for a chance to win is add you name to the link tool, help spread the word about my candy by posting it on your blog sidebar and if you wish, follow my blog! You will have until Thursday September 27th at Midnight  EST to enter and I will then select the random winner and announce it on my blog Friday, September 28th! This blog candy is open to ALL...I will ship it any where around the world!!!
