MFT and Buttons Galore Blog Hop



I told you the other week that MFT was cooking up some summer fun this month. We already joined forces with The Cupcake Inspiration Challenge blog, A Sketch for You To Try, and now we are gearing up for a combined blog hop with Buttons Galore & More. 

  MFT has teamed up with Buttons Galore & More to do a Blog Hop showcasing products from both companies!  To see the entire list of participating designers, please head to the MFT Blog.  You'll want to leave a comment on EACH designer's blog because there is $100 in prizes up for grabs.  MFT will be giving away 2, $25 Gift Certificates, and Buttons Galore & More will be giving away 2, $25 button assortments.  The deadline to comment is July 29th and the winners of all prizes will be announced on July 30th on the MFT and BG&M blogs, so check back to see if you've won!  (I'm crossing my fingers for you).  








Soooo, I put together a Sew Special card for today's event.  I received these pretty creamy, opaque-like buttons, Ivory/Pearl Haberdashery and I really wanted to show them off.  I loved the flourished, almost monogram look of the center button. It was my chosen, special one and I added a double looped twine bow and hung a pair of scissors from it. Love those sewing themed charms that are included in the SEW NIFTY STAMP SET AND DIE-NAMICS. .  I added the buttons and twine to the BRACKET TAB DIE-NAMICS. 







The sketch is from this month's guest designer contest. Once again you have had a full month to   play along. If you haven't gotten your  entry in yet....don't fret, there is still time! It's a fun sketch, give it a go. It's SOOOOO worth the prize....over $200 in MFT Product and a spot to design right along with the DT during the next release. 

Here's the sketch






There are a few other details I'd like to point out.   First, the ease in which I cut the rectangles to show off my dress form and sentiment. I used the RECTANGLE STAX 1 & 2. A perfect fit every time. I added a MINI ROLLED ROSE  cut from PUFF WHITE FELT. I tied on another pretty button, thanks to Buttons Galore & More Color Blends






I tucked in a few CHEVRON STRIPES to match my background paper (Lilly Bee-Buttercup) and then there is a sweet little FISHTAIL FLAG STAX hiding there two. 

That's it for me. Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for the full list of participants for today's special event.

  8. I love the pearly buttons, and the silver monogram like button, and the teal button is pretty and shiny.The tiny scissors are cute. The zig zag teal paper makes me think of ric rac. The combination of the straight and zig zag stitching is a nice touch. I like the placement and style of your scentiment. Thank you for sharing.

  29. I love the blue scissors! I also love how everyone is making such incredibly different cards and all with buttons! Your choice of the sewing die set seems so obvious now - but I think yours is the first card I've seen using it! I am positive I would have missed it too! Just stunning having those silver buttons there and then the little one in the rose!
