Prettie Wednesday- Texture and a Sketch

Hello again everyone, it is time for another Prettie Wednesday challenge!! Two weeks ago, Danielle challenged the Pretties to put some texture onto their cards, but it couldn't be ribbon or primas...well, I hope mine counts, cause it wasn't a prima, but I KINDA made it look like a flower. First of all, I followed the SCS sketch, and cut out all my panels. I used some Old Olive DSP and CS as well as some Pink Pirouette DSP and CS. I stamped my image from Simply Special on Whisper White and then colored it with my Copics. The pink ribbon is from May Arts and the white is some that I got at My Little Ribbon Shop. For my texture, not only is the base embossed with my Argyle folder, but I took some pink felt and cut it out using my small scalloped circle nesties. I then took my scissors and cut up towards the center of the "flower" in between each scallop. On top of that, I added a Heidi Swapp ghost flower and a build a brad. Well, that is it for me now, go check out what my other Pretties have done!! Thanks for stopping by!!
ETA: One should NOT write blog posts at 1:30AM, you always forget something. It is my week to challenge my girls, so here is my challenge to make a card using my new favorite color combo..Rose Red, Cameo Coral, and Kiwi Kiss(you can substitute Old Olive for this). Yayyy, I love a good color challenge!!

Welcome to the February Hop!!

Welcome to the February My Favorite Things Blog Hop. If you are just now joining the hop, be sure to go to Kim's Blog to get started. If you are here now, you should have come from Holly's blog!! I am sure you have seen some MAJOR eye candy before me, so hopefully I don't disappoint!! Today I am going to show you TWO cards that I made using the Tea For Two set by Stephanie are the details for the release!!

My Favorite Things ( is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, Februray 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 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.

For my first card, I used some of the super cute Twitterpated paper from Imaginisce. I colored the cup and mouse in with my Copic markers after stamping it on Gina K White 120lb. paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I paired it with Real Red and Mellow Moss card stock. The ribbons are all from SU, as well as the punches that were used to create the sentiment panel. The white brads are from Doodlebug and the Spiral clip is from Spare Parts(Hobby Lobby). I did stamp the cup twice and popped the bunny butt up. I then added some white liquid applique to his tail to make it poofy.

My second card I actually made for the How'd They Do That tutorial over in the MFT member forum. I am demonstrating the Paper Tole technique, which I think REALLY adds a lot to these images. For more details on this technique, you can check out my tutorial on SCS. As far as the supplies for this card, it is all SU except for the spiral clips, which are also Spare Parts. The DP on the cup and the background are from the now retired(wahhhh) Parisian Summer DSP.

That is it for me now..the next stop is the ever talented Joanne Basile!! Thanks for stopping by!!
