Prettie Wednesday- A Favorite Embellie- or Four, lol!

So, two week's ago Jodi challenged all the Prettie Girls to make a card using their favorite embellishment. Me being an equal opportunity embellishment lover, I couldn't pick just one, so I used four, LOL!! I also, after some smooth talking from the Pretties, decided that we could start peeking the new sets today instead of tomorrow so you get to see the AMAZING new set, Everyday Picnic too!! YAHOO!! Here are all the release details, and then we will get to the goods!!

On Saturday, August 1st Paper Pretties will be having their monthly Stampin In Your Jammies party!! The party starts at 8pm EST and will last until 10pm. We will be having three challenges, so be sure to come and play along!! Besides the challenges, chatter, and all around fun, we will also be releasing two new sets, Aloha Sophia to the public, and introducing our new Stamp Of The Month. Sneak peeks start on Wednesday July 29th!! Hope to see you there!!
Still here? Good!! Here is a look at the new Everyday Picnic set...isn't it FABULOUS!! It is this main image, and a few FABU sentiments that are PERFECT for many occasions! I had so much fun with this image. It was colored with Copics, then I added Crystal Effects to the wine glasses and bottle to make them shiny. The DP is from the Thoroughly Modern DSP and was paired with the new Soft Suede and Rose Red. The white is from Gina K. All the ribbons are from SU, the sentiment was punched out with an SU punch, and the brads are SU as well. I did a ton of piercing, and the spiral clip is from Joannes....see I told you, I used ALL my favorite embellies, lol!!
Well, that is it for me now!! Be sure to check out the other Pretties, listed in my sidebar, to see what they have in store for, I can't WAIT!!

SMOOCHing with MFT

Hey everyone!! Hope you all are having a good day/night, whatever your case may be!! My card today is one that I made using this past Saturday's Sketch For You To Try. It is also one of my samples for this week's How'd They Do That tutorial for MFT!! This week's tutorial is all about the new Smooch paints...well new to me!! Seriously, if you haven't tried these, you need to check them out!! My card features the new Bubble Bunny stamp from MFT. I colored just his ears and cheeks with my Copics, and paper pieced the tub with some of the Spring Collection paper from MFT. I used the Moonlight Smooch paints on the bubbles to make them shimmer and shine! I also used the spring buttons.The ribbon is from the Royalty Ribbon collection from MFT. My cardstock is from SU, Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink.
Well, that is it for me now!! Be sure to check out my tutorial!!
