BCDzyns New Release Blog Hop!!

Hey everyone and welcome to the BC Dzyns blog hop!! BC Dzyns is a line of stamps put out by My Favorite Things. If you are just now finding the hop, please go to Kim's blog(the MFT lady) to get started. If you are not familiar with the way a hop works, just go to the starting point and it will link you to the next blog and so on and so on. So, the new set from BC Dzyns is called "and then I said...". It features this GORGEOUS girl and several sentiments to go along with her. I stamped my image on Whisper White with Black Stazon and colored her in with my SU markers, blender pens and SU reinkers. I used my Cuttlebug and circle nesties to cut out the image and her layers. The colors on this card are Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette. I pierced a border around the image on the PP layer and then used my 1/16ths punch to create the holes in the scallops. The DP is from the SU Bella Rose stack and it is layered with some Riding Hood Red that was scalloped with my SU scallop punch. I added some RHR taffeta, Kiwi Kiss satin around the DP panel as well as on two silver spiral clips. I ran my Whisper White layer through the Cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder. I added some large silver brads to the corners and stamped my sentiment in the bottom corner. This card is pretty simple, but that image is so gorgeous I didn't want to take away from it. That is it for me now...Hop on over to Joanne's Blog(my fellow Dirty Girl, wahooo!!) to see the next sample with this AMAZING set!! I am pretty sure that she is has some BLOG CANDY for you to!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Prettie Tuesday

So, I really wanted to use this image of Sophia dressed up as Mary for my Color Challenge card today. What I didn't count on is the fact that the colors would be Real Red, Kraft and Basic Black...hmmm. So, I did the best I could with it, since I was DETERMINED to use this image from Paper Pretties on my card. The image was stamped on watercolor paper with black ink. I then used my SU markers to color her in. Mary and all her layers were cut out with my Cuttlebug and Oval Nestabilities. I added some piercing, a spiral clip with Kraft taffeta and adhered it to my card base. The base is the challenge colors with Whisper White and then some Kraft patterns paper. I added a RR scalloped piece underneath of it and then wrapped some more Kraft taffeta and some RR grosgrain. The sentiment is also from Paper Pretties and it was punched out with my two largest oval punches from SU. I added some Antique Brass brads and it was done. This image is so gorgeous, it really doesn't need much else, kwim!! Lastly, Paper Pretties is moving and we need to clear out our inventory because we do NOT want to move it!
