Who's That Girl and Snowflake Flopsy

Welcome back to Day Five of MFT Teasers and sadly my last day of being a Guest DTM :) But I had fun! Remember you can visit MFT blog at 11 EST and check out the list of all the DT's eye candy creations!! I know I will! Tonight come and join us for the Release Party starting at 8 PM EST, on the SCS MFT Forum! And please don't forget, after the Release Party, MFT is having a Blog Hop, starting at 10 PM EST.When these stamps will be available :)

Ok, I think Flopsy is a cutie! This stamp set makes me smile, and it's perfect for a quick Christmas card. So here's my simple card.
I love simple cards with clean lines, and that's what I wanted for Flopsy. I stamped and embossed Flopsy then used my craft knife to cut the image out.  For the snowball, I inked up the snowflake that comes with Flopsy, and heat embossed it. Then I tapped my glue ink pad all over it, and heat embossed again, so it would have a "texture" to it.

I'm sure you all know I love my WTG stamps, and this set is no different! Don't you just love the new WTG "Winter in the City" set? :)
For this card, I really wanted a "sepia" look, like a vintage photo has, to it.   


I decided not to color anything in, but the lamps, to keep with the clean sepia look. Spellbinders Fleur de Lis dies and some of their Labels line, made the perfect frame. It holds a flourished transparency, that represents the sweeping wind. I sponged it all off in creams and a very light brown. I apologize for the lighting, but I deliberately kept the light low and in a contrast, so you could see the transparency I used as the base of my card. It's written in French with all white ink, and it's hard to photograph, but I hope you can see the detail.


That's all I have for this morning, but I hope to see you this evening at the MFT Release Party and the Blog Hop & Shop!! I'll have two more creations to show you, and I'm So EXCITED I can hardly wait!!! :)

    Kaye, the flourished transparency is from My Mind's Eye, not a stamp, though I wish it was. I hope that helps :)
