Yep, you heard me right, I FINALLY got to use an SU stamp!! It's not that I don't have plenty of opportunities, I just always seem to grab other stuff...well, not tonight!! I actually used ALL current merchandise too...but almost screwed it all up(it's always the DP that gets me)!! I am so bad about keeping up with what is current and what isn't, but I am hoping that with SU going back to one a year catalogs, that I won't have that problem anymore...wish me luck!!LOL!! Anywho, this is my card for today's Technique Lover's Challenge. It was to make a faux grid. I stamped my image from the SU Ever After set on a piece of Whisper White, and drew my grid with my Basic Black stamping write marker. I then colored the image with my makers, ink pads, and a blender pen. I used some Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, and paired it with Old Olive and Melon Mambo. The ribbon is white organza from SU, and the brads are from SU as well. I used a sentiment from Sincere Salutations, and punched it out with my scalloped oval punch. My layout is also today's Mojo Monday sketch!
Well, that is it for me now!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Little Paper Shop Monday

Hello everyone, and welcome BACK!! This card is my entry for this week's Little Paper Shop weekly blog challenge. This week's challenge was another sketch, and you KNOW how much I love those!! I started it by stamping my Topiary image on an MFT Perfect Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black. It was then colored in with my Copics. The image was then layered with Perfect Plum, Eggplant Envy, and Always Artichoke. My white layer is Gina K. 80lb. white, and the DP is from the VERY retired Cambridge DSP from SU. All the brads are from Hobby Lobby, and the ribbon is from SU. I did some piercing, and then slightly altered the sketch by adding my sentiment panel. It was punched out with my SU oval punches.
Be sure to check out the LPS blog for more details and to see peeks of their new sets..I am LOVING them!!

MFTeaser- Harvest Of Hope

It is time for the mid month My Favorite Things release, and FINALLY, Annie LaPoint is back with a new stamp set!!! I am THRILLED!! I was always a fan of the Who's That Girl? images, but Annie's cute little bathtubs and flower pots just make me HAPPY!! This month's set is GORGEOUS! I paired it with the MFT Spring Paper Pack. The wheelbarrow image was stamped on an MFT Perfect Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black. I then colored it with my Copic markers. The image was layered with Certainly Celery and Pretty In Pink. My ribbons are from both the Spring Ribbon Nest, and the Royalty Ribbon Nest. The spiral clips are ones that I picked up at Joann's, and the brads are from Hobby Lobby. I used my SU punches to make the sentiment panel.
