Prettie Wednesday-Inspiration

So, two weeks ago, I challenged the Prettie girls to be Inspired!! I asked them to find a picture or object, or whatever to use as inspiration for their card. Here is my inspiration piece. Isn't is such a cute bedroom!! I can't wait to have kids of my own!! Anyway, I used the colors from this room, which I interpreted to be Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette as well as the polka dots. The DP is from the SU Bella Rose pack. My image is the NEW Stamp of the Month Club, for November. You have until October 31st at midnight to get signed up in order to receive this stamp a month before it is actually released in December. Be sure to get signed up, and don't forget to tell them I sent you!! Anyway, I stamped my image on water color paper with Black Stazon and used my aqua painter and re-inkers to color her along with my SU markers. I keep getting asked which marker I use to do my shadow, and for some reason, I don't know why I don't ever list it in my recipe. It is a Cool Grey 20% Prismacolor marker. The ribbon is all from SU, although the narrow pink organdy is retired. I used a bunch of silver brads and piercing, my word window punch to punch out my sentiment, and I ran my white layer through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. This card was also made using the SCS sketch challenge. That is it for me now, I have an ENORMOUSLY busy day, so wish me luck!! Also, be sure to check out the other Prettie Girls to see what they have cooked up for ya!! Jodi is our challenger for this week, so I can't wait to see what she will come up with!!

Another Teaser/SCS Sketch

I know, don't I just come up with the most original titles for my posts---NOT!!LOL!! In all seriousness, this is My Favorite Things new Reading Flopsey set which will be released tonight at the MFT release party.Here are the details: My Favorite Things ( is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, October 1 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern time. This month there are SIX new sets being released, plus a new storage system for your MFT stamps that you are gonna love!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. So, I decided to use the Reading Flopsey set today because I thought the image would work WONDERFUL with the SCS sketch challenge. I used a combination of markers, re inkers, aqua painter and blender pens to color my image. The ribbon is SU cream grosgrain and the gingham is from JoAnns. I added a ton of silver brads, some piercing, and I used my YUMMY Parisian Summer DP from SU. I know, I have not kept it a secret that I really dislike Bravo Burgundy, but hey, I am female, which totally entitles me to change my mind!!LOL!! Okay, so I don't really LOVE it, but I do like it now, especially with this paper, how could you not??
So, tonight is both the MFT release party and the Paper Pretties Stampin In Your Jammies party, can you SEE my head spinning from where you are sitting??? Should be LOADS of fun, from which I am sure to pass out with exhaustion from afterwards, LOL!! Hope to see you at one, or both!!
