Welcome to the Hop!!

It is FINALLY time for another My Favorite Things blog hop, and I am SUPER excited about this month's release!! On top of 4 FABULOUS sets, we are releasing several new accessories that are to DIE for!! If you want more info on what is being released, check out this thread!!
Today's hop started at Kim's blog, so if you haven't been there..you need to go back!! Now, if you are here, you should have come from Jody's blog, where I am SURE she had something fabulous for you to see!! After you leave here, you will need to go to Frances' blog, but don't leave yet..you haven't even seen my cards, LOL!!
Okay, all kidding aside...the first set I am using today is the new Stephanie Fizer set, Owls and Blue Bells. As you can see, my bluebells are orange, but I decided long ago that when stamping, animals and flowers can be whatever color I want them to be, and I am sticking to it!! I started by stamping my image on an MFT Perfect Panel and then I colored it in with my Copic markers. The sentiment was stamped the same way, then punched out with my middle sized oval punch. I then layered it on my circles(all SU punches), in Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, and Chocolate Chip. The DP is from the Hawaiian Papaya DSP. The ribbons are all from SU as well, but the spiral clip is by Creative Express.
For my next card, I used the second new Stephanie Fizer set, Snuggle Bunnies. I stamped my bunnies on an MFT Perfect Panel and then colored them in with my Copic markers...see pink bunnies..CA-UTE!! My sentiment was added to it as well, and then I layered it with Pink Pirouette and So Saffron. I added some DP from the Delicate Dots and Pink Pirouette Patterns DSP from SU. Bot ribbons are from SU and the spiral clip is from Creative Express. My Scallops were made with the SU Scalloped Edge punch. Aren't they sweet!!
Okay, that is it for me for now!! Now, off to Frances' Blog to see what fabulousness she has cooked up for you-what do you want to bet there are a few owls flying around there??!!

A New Flopsey!!

Here we are at day two of the My Favorite Things release teasers!! For you today, I have a card using the soon to be released Birthday Flopsey. Seriously, I couldn't love this little bunny more if I tried..his big ol ears sucker me in every time!! For my card today, I also used some of the NEW Chocolate Kiss Paper...yummmy!!! It will be released this week, along with a few other new embellishments and accessories that are to die for!! The party happens in the My Favorite Things member forum on Wednesday, May 6th from 8pm to 10pm EST. There are lots of release night specials too, so you wanna make sure you are there to take advantage of them. Kim has all the details lined out for you here, so if you want more info on the release, what's being released, and all the specials...check out this thread!!
Onto my card!! For my card today, I started by stamping my Flopsey on an MFT Perfect Panel. He was then colored with my copics, cut out using the out of the box technique, and then layered with Regal Rose from SU, and Dark Chocolate from PTI(I know, I fell off the SU only CS wagon and bought a BUNCH of their colors...oiy). The chocolate and light pink ribbons are both from the new MFT Chocolate Kiss Ribbon Nest!! The DP's are both from the Chocolate Kiss 6x6 Paper Pack...seriously, these papers are GORGEOUS!! I added some silver brads, a spiral clip, did a ton of piercing, and my sentiment panel and it was done(the sentiment was punched with my SU oval punches and the Rose grosgrain under the chocolate satin ribbon is from SU)!!
Well, that is it for me now!! Wanna see more peeks..come back tonight at 10pmEST when this months blog hop will start!! Also, check out this gallery on SCS for more peeks of the 4 new sets!! Thanks and have a great day!!
