MFTeaser-Clearly Sentimental About You

It is time for another My Favorite Things release, and today is day 2 of our pre-release Teasers. Today, I am using the new Clearly Sentimental About You set. I am really enjoying our new Clearly Sentimental line, such gorgeous sentiments and quotes!!

For my card today, I started by using Jen's Sketch For You To Try. I stamped my sentiment on a piece of Vanilla cardstock, then cut it and it's Pink Pirouette and Bravo Burgundy layers out with my Cuttlebug and circle Nestabilities. My DP is from the Parisian Summer DSP pack. I used SU gold brads, gold spiral clips from a local store, and SU ribbons. My flower is also from SU.

For the inside, I used some more of the DP, and stamped another sentiment from the set. Sweet, huh?
Well, that is it for me now! Head on over to Kim's Blog to see what the other DT members have made for you to see today!! Thanks and have a great day!

There She Goes: Dance/Beautiful Spring BHC


Hey everyone, and welcome to this month's first There She Goes Blog Hop Release challenge!! This month we are releasing two full size, and three mini sets. Today, I have two of the mini sets to show you, but first I wanted to share some news with you, and tell you about the challenge. First, today we are saying goodbye to a few of our fellow Trendsetters. Maki, Dawn, Gretchen, Jackie, Julie, and Wendy are all leaving the team, and I am SO SAD!! I know I haven't been around much, and I can't say that I know all of them as well as I would like to, but I have enjoyed working with them and seeing their work each week. You will all be sorely missed.
Now, would you like to have a chance to win one of these sets? I thought you would!! Just be sure to go through the entire hop starting at Jessica's Blog. Leave a comment there, and then on each one of the participating Trendsetters blog's along the way. When you are done, head back to the There She Goes blog and enter your name in the Mr. Linky box. A winner will be chosen on release day(Saturday, February 27th). Now, onto my cards!!

My first card was made using the new Dance mini set. It is a GORGEOUS mini set, if you ask me!! I started by stamping my sentiment and flowers on an MFT Perfect Panel. The images were then colored using my Copics and then cut out. I used my Cuttlebug to cut out the sentiment panel and it's layers(Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, and Kiwi Kiss). My DP is from the SU Bella Rose pack, my brads are from Michael's, spiral clip from Amazon, and my ribbons are from SU.

For my next card, I used the new Beautiful Spring mini set. It was also stamped on an MFT Perfect Panel, and then colored with my Copics. I know I have been using these colors and DP(Georgia Peach, Regal Rose, So Saffron, and Old Olive) a lot, but they are so perfect for Spring, how could you not? My sentiment panel was created using SU punches, my ribbons are from SU, brads are from Michael's and my spiral clip came from Amazon.
Well, that is it for me now!! The next stop on the hop is at my girl Jodi's Blog. I love that chick and I am SURE she has something that is going to knock your socks off!! Thanks for stopping by and have fun!!

Celebrate...

I haven't had much time to stamp or blog of late, but I have had this card done for a week now, and just haven't had the time to post it. Uuuugh, life is so hectic when you have to actually go to work, LOL!! I know I had whined before about trying to figure out a good balance between my social/stamping/work life, and I have my moments where I do really well, and then others that aren't so hot. This past week hasn't been so hot....but things will get better, I am sure!!

For today, I have a card I made using the GORGEOUS new stamp from My Favorite Things, Birthday Balloon Jolinne. Isn't she pretty!! I stamped her on an MFT Perfect Panel, and then colored her with my Copics. I then paired her with my SU Cottage Wall DSP. The CS colors are Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence, and Old Olive. My ribbons are from SU, as well as the punches used for the sentiment. I got my brads from Michael's and my spiral clips from Amazon.
Well, that is it for me for now. Thanks for stopping by!!
