Anyone for more MFT Sneak Peaks?

Day three is all about Pure Innocence! "Better Get Better" is so loveable! The bandaged teddy is just the sweetest. I remember playing hospital with my stuffed animals when I was a little girl. This time it I used Cosmo Criket CS along with some PTI and SU! Layered some Nesties for a great background efffect, then finished up with a couple Prima flowers and the punched sentiment.
"Pure Innocence, Blooming Good Day". Isn't she just so sweet!! This Cosmo Criket CS goes perfectly with the springy image. I sponged some CS I cut using my Oval and Labels Nesties. Colored with Copics popped her up with foam tape and added some ribbon, primas with brad centers. Oh yeah, did I mention there will be 3 new Pure Innocence sets and 13 new sets in all this month!!! Check out KIM'S BLOG for all of todays samples!

My Favorite Things February Release Sneak Peaks Day 1

Day 1 sneak peak of "Basket Full O' Flopsey" . I used the heart basket insert but there are also eggs, and flowers plus several sentiments, which makes this a very versatile set. I colored with Copics, used my square classic and scalloped Nesties. CS is basic Grey and SU! I chose a wonky(yes that is my word for different) fold for this card. I added a piece of ribbon and extra CS on the back to help it stand up. For all of Day 1 sneak peaks visit KIM'S Blog for all the links.

Pure Innocence

There was never a truer name for a product line than My Favorite Things, Pure Innocence. These little guys and girls are just the sweetest images. For the card above I used Snow Adorable, colored them with Copics and paper pieced using SU! DSP. Also used Basic Grey CS. Nestibilities where used to cut out the sentiment and to layer the image. My favorite part of this card is the little flower I made. I used Nestibilities Peony in the three smallest sizes to cut out flowers, two of each size, I just used an old book with newsprint type pages, crumpled them up, then swept them across a Distress Ink pad, color is old paper. Crumpled again then simply organized them how I liked, punched a whole and placed a brad. That's all!
This cutie is My Umbrella. Her little rain coat is perfect for paper piecing, I used PTI DP. Also used PTI Kraft and blue CS. The gingam ribbon is SU!. I used Glossy Accents to give the umbrella top a slick look. Of course my go to Nestibilities, this time I used ovals to cut the image and layer it. I also used Labels 3 and double cut it to create a frame for my ovaled images.

Did someone ask for Buttons?

Yes Miss Frances did...Every other Tuesday beginning this week(see why I am late in my previous post) the Riley and Company Design Team will take turns hosting challenges. My week is February 9th but you will have to check back to find out what the challenge is. So I used Get Well Riley and let me just say that he is a blast to color with my Copics! I used my Nestibilities, Basic Grey and SU! CS, some misc. Ribbon and of course my three Brown Buttons tied with a bit of Hemp Twine.

I'm really not a loser, I promise!

Sorry it has been over a week since I posted! One of my lightbulbs burned out in the lamps I use for my table top light studio. So I have spent countless hours trying to find replacements! Let me just say how ridiculously stupid it has been with ZERO luck. So not only did one burn out, but I knocked the other lamp over and broke the other bulb. Well anyway I finally found the bulbs I need on Ebay at a great price and the best part they came today, only 3 days since I ordered, YAY!! I promise I will have some adorable(well I think so) cards up tomorrow! Thanks for hanging in there!!

Raspberry PTI ribbon and SU! green ribbon. I used my Labels Large and Rectangle Nestibilities with my Cuttlebug. The image is stamped ith Momento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics marker colors B41 & 45, E33, 35, 37, 42, 43 & 44, G07 & RV14. Hardware is retired from SU!. The notepad comes in a 12 pack at Office Max, I believe they are 4"x6".

A simple Journal...

I have a journal in my studio where I write down ideas for projects, requests for a particular project and card orders. I was looking at it today an deceided that it needed some sprucin' up. So real quick I covered it with some patterned paper, colored SCHOOL BOY RILEY with Copics (I attached a picture of the colors I used) and added him and some felt flowers to the cover. You can get the entire line of Riley and Sophie Moose stamps at RILEY AND COMPANY.

How about a little UNITY...

I used the Cherries in the Unity Stamp Co. set "Mix Up of Cuteness". I found the DCWV cherry paper in my stash and it just happen to match the Copic colors I used on the image. I used Copics R43 & R45 and G24 & g28. Label and circle Nestibilities, cardstock colors are SU! Cameo Coral and Certainley Celery.

This adorable whale is also from "Mix Up of Cuteness". As soon as I saw it I had to make a super simple baby card. I used Copic colors V12 & V15. Circle Nestibilities by Spellbinders, paper is by PTI and the punches are from SU!

How about one for the boys? Mr. Owl is from the Unity Stamp Co. set "Mix Up of Cuteness" with the sentiment beign from a PTI set. I had already colored him without writting down the Copic color numbers, sorry. CS is SU! & PTI and patterned paper is DCWV. The tasty twill ribbon is also PTI and the Hardware is SU!
