Sorry, I have NO IDEA why the Sesame Street song emerged today. I'll do my best to keep that from happening again.
Today was Celebrate MFT Day, which is the 20th of every month. Why the 20th? Well, if you ordered at the release, you probably have them in your hot little hands and are ready to ink 'em up!. This date does not conflict with MFT or other companies release dates. It's just a day to have fun and get busy with any of your MFT stamps!!
This is a project I made a couple of weeks ago using the Happy Occasions Set. Using another Chinese takeout box as a template, I made my own version out of Kraft paper, stamped the "happy" stamp in Stampin Up Craft White, and created a little tag to match. I used some digi-paper printed on thin watercolor paper, stamped the Happy stamp in Versamark and embossed in clear ep. Then I positioned the heart where it would cover "Happy" and did an emboss resist with it. Basically, I stamped it on top and wiped away the ink from the embossing powder. Fun, huh?
I think I may do an easier version (maybe a 2,4,6,8 box?) of this for Caleb's class for V-day... wish me luck in fitting that into my schedule! *wink*
I've been working hard getting some stuff ready to submit for publication...so if I'm not around, I'm burnin the midnight oil in my stamp room! Wish me luck!
