MFT Meets Scor-Pal Blog Hop!!

Today, we are teaming up with the SUPER talented ladies at Scor-Pal for a Blog Hop, and we are SO excited!! I am a DIEHARD fan of Scor-Pals, and not only do I have the big Scor-Pal, but I LOVE my new Scor-Buddy.....makes my life SO much easier!! My Scor-Pal, and mat, are my work surface, so having the Scor-Buddy makes it to where I don't have to clean off my work surface every time I need to use it!

The master list of everyone hopping can be found on the My Favorite Things Blog, so be sure to head there after you are finished here to see who all is participating!!

For my card tonight, I started with the Inspired By Flowers 2 set, and stamped my Rose on X-Press It Blending card. I colored the rose with my Copics, and then cut it out with my Oval Nesties. After stamping, coloring, and cutting out my flower, I used my Scor-Buddy to create a grid pattern on the main image. LOVE the way this looks. I then layered it with the Oval Open Scalloped Doily Die-namics in Black Licorice. My paper is from the Echo Park Yours Truly pack. I used the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics for my sentiment, and added a tiny rose with my Mini Rolled Rose Die-namics. I embellished my card with some Black Seam Binding from The Ribbon Carousel, and some brads from Michael's.

Here is a close up of the grid.

And here are the Die-namics I have used:

Well, that is it for me for now!! Now, off to the MFT Blog for a full list of designer's from both companies participating in today's hop!!

Nursebot Blog Hop Challenge

Hey Everyone!! It is time for this month's New Release Blog Hop Challenges to start for There She Goes, and we are SO excited!! This month's sets are SURE to have you at first sight!! We can't wait to get started!!

No "bots" set would be complete without Nursebot! Torico has done it again. She warmed your heart last month with Lovebots and this month she’s going to make you feel all better with Nursebot. What a great way to send well wishes then a visit from the Nursebot!!

Nursebot is a 4x4 set that includes a total of 11 stamps and will sell for $10.00.

For my card today, I started by stamping my Nursebot on X-Press It blending card, and then colored him/her with my Copics. I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch, and paper from the MME Lime Twist Out of the Blue pack. I paired it with Night of Navy, Tangy Orange, and Sour Apple cardstock. My ribbon came from SU, and my Stone Twine is from the Ribbon Carouse. I used Michael's brads, and a Creative Express spiral clip.

Would you like to win the new Nursebot stamp set? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go.
