A Hooga Booga Sketch

I decided that I needed some stamping therapy today, so my nephew was patiently wheeling about my house in his walker chasing the dog while I stamped a little. Luckily, I have been thinking about this card since I saw the sketch this morning, so when I sat down to make it, it was easy peasy!! Before I get into all the details, here is some news about all the happenings over at My Favorite Things. On Monday, Michelle posted the weekly spotlight. This week’s spotlight with My Favorite Things is on the 6″ x 6″ paper packs. They are currently available in Spring and Summer collections. There are 25 sheets per pack, five patterns, five sheets of each. Be sure while you are there to check out the matching ribbons, as well as all the new sparkly goodness that MFT has to offer!! We also announced the new Bubble Bin? The Bubble Bin is a selection of stamp sets that may be retiring or there may just be too many of a particular set in inventory that week. Each Monday the sets will change, quantities may be limited and sale prices will run from Monday to Sunday (or until they’re gone), so be sure to check it out each week to see if there’s something you “need” in the Bin! Also, this weeks HTDT tutorial, as well as the weekly challenge, is up, and our very own Amy has done a BANG UP job!! Her cards really are some of my most favorites, and her style is one that I envy. She is teaching Paper Pleating this week, so be sure to check it out!!
Okay, before you go into overload, and my nephew gets bored, here is my card for today's Sketch Challenge. I chose to use my Summer Paper Pack(the one that is on sale..hint hint) and the matching ribbon(actually the pink one is from the Spring Pack and the organdy from the Summer). I paper pieced my girl monster from Hooga Booga, and then colored the rest of her with my Copic markers. Her face was cut out separately too, to give it more dimension. Then I covered her and her hair bow with Dazzling Diamonds glitter using my two way glue pen. The flowers and brads are from MFT(couldn't find them on the site, so I think they may be unavailable). Okay, his patience is wearing thin...gotta run!! Have a great day!!

Prettie Wednesday-Jackie's Color Combo

So, Two weeks ago, Miss Jackie P.(Officer Jacque to some), challenged all the Prettie's to make a card using Kraft, Chocolate Chip, and Baja Breeze. I was SUPER excited cause I am in LOVE with my Parisian Breeze paper, and those are it's main colors. I decided to use an older Paper Pretties stamp, Cuddle Me. It is by far still my most favorite Sophia. I love all the other ones, but this one sorta started it all for me, so it is hard not to, kwim? I stamped her in Gina K. White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then paper pieced her dress with some PB DSP. I used my Copics to color the rest of her in. The sketch is from Jen's Sketch For You To Try from Saturday. all the ribbons are from SU, and the brads are from Doodlebug. I used my Oval Nestabilities to cut out Sophia, and my Ribbon Slide tag dies to cut out the sentiment. All the DP is from the SU Parisian Breeze pack.
Wanna play along? Just make a card using this color combo and leave a link here or on one of the other Pretties posts and show us what you got!! Speaking of Pretties, don't forget to go around and check out what GORGEOUSNESS they have created for this challenge...I am sure they are all amazing!
