The Final Tease!!

These are my two final teaser cards for the MFT release that happened today at 9:30cst. I made the first one using the Goin' Places set, isn't it adorable!!! I love the colors on this, even though they were a STRETCH for me! The paper that I used was my inspiration and I got my colors from there. It is some retired SU paper(Dots and Dashes) that I didn't even know that I had!! The airplane and the banner are two separate stamps, and the sentiment is also from the set that I curved on my block to fit inside the banner(I practiced on scratch paper). That is one of the things that I love about clear stamps, you can arrange them any way you want on your block so that they stamp the way you want them too. I don't remember who I saw do this first, but they are a genius because honestly, I never would have thought of it myself!! I colored the image in with my SU markers and outlined it with my gray marker. I added the brads in the top and bottom corner(relatively) and then added a spiral clip with some yummy grosgrain ribbon. Hope you like it!!

paper-Green Galore, Only Orange, Ballet Blue, Whisper White and Dots and Dashes SU DSP
tools- spiral clip, grosgrain ribbon, brads, markers, aquapainter
My second card is from the set Friends Furever, and I have to say, it is my favorite set from the new release!! I used my SU markers to color it in and my spots were added with my Creamy Caramel marker. The paper is from SU(East Coast Prep) and I cut it into 4 equal pieces and added silver brads to the corners. I made my sentiment circle using several SU punches and some more silver brads. I pulled my colors from the paper. Again, the colors were a stretch for me, but I got them from the paper!! That is all for me now, I am worn out and need sleep!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! I am going to leave you with a few more pictures from my trip to Arlington-don't worry, I am about done!! The first one is of my roommates Vanessa(Loubella) and Melanie(mel mel), the second is me with Bev(TexasGrammy), The third is with Carolyn King(Cammie) and the last one is me with Christy(cpine)-the wannabe door prize stealer!!LOL

Another Teaser

This is my last teaser before the party, and then afterwards(if I am still conscious)I will post some more!! I am really loving these new sets and am dying to get back to stamping!! I think tomorrow(as if I haven't drove enough) I will go shopping for some much needed stamping stuff!! I was so good on my trip and didn't buy much, so now that I am home and have all the bills paid, I know what I got, and it is burning a hole in my pocket!! This is from the new set being released at the My Favorite Things release party being held in the SCS member forum! The fun starts at 9est(8cst) and the new sets will be available at 10:30est(9:30cst), and trust me when I say that you need them!! My card is from the set Goin' Places and it is a fabulous set for anyone who travels. I used some paper from the Basic Gray Two Scoops collection to paper piece her dress and add a panel on the lower half. I colored the rest in with markers, and besides that, the rest is pretty easy, but if you have questions, be sure to shoot me an email!! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you at the party!!

Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago Danielle(dlounds) challenged all the Prettie girls to make a masculine card, make it hard on us why don't ya!!! I tried every Paper Pretties stamp I own, but I just couldn't get anything to work for my "guys". If you haven't figured it out, all the men in my family are a little rugged. Hunters, fishers, retired military, you know, guys guys. I finally gave up and made this card, which I also used for my shoebox swap in Arlington. I need to apologize to Joni, because this hasn't even made it to the post office yet, but I promise it will tomorrow( I have a job interview there anyway)!! I used the SU set, Bronc Buster for the main image and Weathered on the bottom panel. For the shoebox swap, you had to have a 10 minute card, so this is pretty easy to make, but I did do a lot of distressing and sponging. Julie posted out challenge this week which is to Be Inspired by a website or blog and make a card or project based on that. We would love it if you would play along, just be sure to post a link to your card so that we can all see it!! Last week Christie challenged us to make a card using acetate(I guess I need to get started)!! That is all for this post, I need to get some of my MFT stuff posted, so I will see you soon!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!!
