March VIP Tour

Hey everyone, and welcome to March's VIP Product Tour!! This month's collection is SUPER fun, and I am IN LOVE with the VIP sentiments set!!!

If you aren't familiar with the VIP Package it is a LIMITED QUANTITY product (NOT a one-day product - it will be available until it sells out), that allows you the opportunity to purchase new, unreleased sets TWO weeks early. This month's package is: 

Pure Innocence Magician stamp set
Pure Innocence Scientist stamp set
Amazing & Magical Sentiments mini (VIP exclusive stamp set - will never be offered for sale or be available again $9 value, FREE)
Chevron Stripes Die-namics Die
Pinking Edge Die-namics Die

For my card tonight, I used the Pure Innocence Scientist set. My sentiment is from the VIP Sentiments set, which I love! I personally am AMAZED by Science, so this sentiment worked PERFECT for me!! I stamped her on X-Press It Blending Card, and then colored her with my Copics. She was then layered with Bubblegum, Berrylicious, and Jellybean Green. I used the Chevron Stripes Die-namics to create my background panel out of Lilybee Designs Victoria Park paper. I also used this paper for her pants. My ribbon is the new Jellybean Green ribbon from MFT, and my twine is Blossom. I used Michael's brads, and a spiral clip from Creative Express. 

Here are the Die-namics I have used: 

Well, that is it for me for now!! Be sure to check out Kim's Blog for a full list of designers participating in today's post!!

For my project, I used the supplies from the March Key Ingredients Kit, a small clipboard(6x9), and a blank note pad. It's what I am going to be using for my shopping list, now!! I stamped a flower from Hello Spring onto each page to make it prettier! My sentiment is from the Moka Olivia set. This month's kit included the Echo Park This&That pad and matching brads. My papers are all from Bazil(Pomegranate, Quartz, and Lizard). I used the ribbon provided in the kit, as well. My scallops were made with the MFT Simply Scalloped Medium Die-namics.

RCC45 Showered With Twine

Hey Everyone, and Happy Tuesday! It is time for this week's Ribbon Carousel challenge, and even though it's not my week to post, my card fit the challenge perfectly, so I went with it! 

This week's challenge is being sponsored by The Twinery, and our challenge was to OF COURSE use Twine...which I use all the time, so no biggie, right! 

For my card tonight,I CASEd a card I had made previously using the MFT Umbrella and Die-namics set. I had it requested as an order for a Wedding card, using more "peacock-y" colors, so I hope Igot it close to right, LOL! I used the MME Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky pad, and paired it with Night of Navy(SU), Blu Raspberry, and Sour Apple(MFT) card stock. I used both the Notched Tag, and Hearts Die-namics for my hearts. My sentiment was cut out with the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics.  For my embellishments, I used brads from Michael's, Satin Edged White Grosgrain Ribbon and Caribbean Twine from the Ribbon Carousel. I used the Center Step Card tutorial on SCS for my design, as well.

For the inside, I used a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Romance, and Inspired by Flowers 2.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:

Well, that is it for me for now! Here is a list of all the designers participating in today's challenge/hop. Have fun, and happy hopping!!
