Bling Bet Bounce

Welcome to the Bling Bet Bounce!! For this month's My Favorite Things release, we are having TWO hops!! One is this one, obviously, so if you are just not seeing this, head on over to Kim's Blog to get the party started!! You back from Jen's blog? GOOD!! Okay, before I get into the gory details, here is what you need to know about the release!!


My Favorite Things (http://www.mftstamps.com/) is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, February 4th from 9-10 p.m. EST. This month there are THREE new sets being released including a Who's that Girl set that is GOING DIGITAL!Head over to the MFT forum on http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ to find out all the details and to find out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. We hope to see you there on Wednesday night.

Alright, now onto my projects....I don't know about you all, but I LOVE it when people LOVE what I do, kwim? I love it when my family opens my cards and gifts and ooh and ahh over how cool they are and how talented I am....seriously, I think we all need a little reassurance. For my sister's last birthday, I made her a personalized notebook...I don't if she likes it, I don't know if she uses it, but I KNOW she thought it looked cool. She called me not to long ago and told me that my nieces friend, who is appropriately named Jessica(awesome name), is in LOVE with the notebook I had made for my sister. She kept hinting that she wanted one, so my sister asked if I would make one for her for her birthday that is coming up soon. She goes by Jess, so when I saw the Bling Bet being released this month, I KNEW I wanted to use it!! I stamped the letters with Chocolate Chip ink and then added some Icicle Stickles to the holes. Be sure when you use the stickles with this alphabet, which was specifically made so that you could do whatever you want in the holes(in fact, I think Kim will have an awesome tip sheet available the night it is released), you don't squeeze to hard-a little goes a LONG way!! I took my composition notebook and covered it with some 3 Bugs in a Rug Cocoa collection paper. I added some yummy ribbon, a tag that came with the kit, some buttons from SU and a punched butterfly(Martha Stewart). I REALLY hope she likes it!!
For this next project, I wanted to show how it could be incorporated into a card, so I stamped the letters in Versamark and heat embossed them with Black EP. I then cut them out and colored the holes in with my Kiwi Kiss reinker and a blender pen. This card is VERY simple, but I LOVE the colors and you GOTTA love that ribbon!! The black is got AMAZING texture to it, it is from May Arts(thanks AGAIN Julie!!) The Kiwi Ribbon, buttons and paper are from SU. I scalloped the edge with my SU scalloped edge punch. The big button has white taffeta from SU through it and the two smaller have black brads. Like I said, super simple, but I am LOVING it!!
So, you ready to see some more EYE CANDY??? I thought so, BOUNCE on over to JOANNE'S blog for the next stop!! Thanks and have a great day, see you tonight(technically tomorrow night right now, but you get the idea) for the MFT release hop...I am a hopping/bouncing fool!!hehe
