STAY TUNED...


 Hi there, stamping friends!
I had a chance to use some fun new stamps and dies from My Favorite Things today and couldn't wait to share!  

There are two challenges going on now, too, so it was a perfect time for me to play along with these new goodies that I received at a craft retreat a few weeks ago.  

Here are the graphics for the current MFT Card Challenges!




After getting the Sour Apple Card Stock card base ready and adding a couple of angled patterned paper panels, I went to work on the super fun focal point...that TV!  When I first saw that LLD Stay Tuned stamp set and Die-namics LLD Television, I instantly began reminiscing about my childhood when we had to get up off the couch and "flip" the channel knob manually!

For the card, I layered all of those fun pieces of the television together and added a sentiment stamped over a piece of vellum to adhere across the center.  This card is perfect for my oldest son who will turn 15 at the end of the month....he watches a bit of TV also and should get a chuckle out of this retro TV style that his mom and dad used to watch "back in the day."  LOL!


Thanks for stopping by the stage!

LOL. Stacey I remember those TV's too. Its funny how fast things have changed. Our kids don't know anything about the days of having to "get up" to change the channel!
Too funny.
I love your card. I have a TV die and have made shaker cards with them (for Father's Day cards), but I like what you have done here. I must try that.
