TSG178 - Sew Glad We're Friends!

Hi there!! I am sneaking this card in at the last minute for this week's There She Goes Challenge #178. This week's challenge was a sketch challenge - my favorite kind! TSG always has such good sketches, and this one is definitely a new favorite! 

I used some older Cosmo Cricket Material Girl papers. The cream background and cream circle were embossed with the Polka Dots embossing folder, and the blue panel was embossed with the Seeing Spots embossing folder. I cut out the flags with the MFT Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics. I outlined the cream circle with a Cream Viva Pearl Pen. The pincushion image is from one of my favorite TSG stamp sets - Cute as a Button. I colored it with Copic markers, cut it out, and popped it up with a foam dot. Some measuring tape ribbon and a stick pin finished this card off. 



Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

TSGA - You're a Hoot!

Hi there!!

It is There She Goes Again Week at TSG Stamps this week, and we are featuring these three stamp sets:

I used the You're a Hoot stamp set on my card. I decided to make this a quick card and not do any coloring. I actually really like how it turned out. Since I didn't color my image, I wanted to do something to the image panel to add a little interest, so I used some White Opal Liquid Pearls. The patterned paper is new to my collection - Glitz Design Cashmere...love these patterns - especially the chevron!! I sewed around the edges of the papers and added some Black Vintage Seam Binding from the Ribbon Carousel. The sentiment was cut out with a Tag Trio Nestabilitie shape and tucked under the ribbon. I added three little black pearls to finish it off. 


Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Have a great day! :)

Supplies:
Cardstock: MFT Black Licorice, X-Press It Blending Card
Patterned Paper: Glitz Design Cashmere
Stamps: You're a Hoot by There she Goes
Embellishments: Kaisercraft pearls, White Opal Liquid Pearls, Black Vintage Seam Binding (Ribbon Carousel), foam dots

TSG Toadally Awesome Blog Hop Challenge

Hi there!! It is time for Release Week at There She Goes, and that means we have some GREAT sneak peeks in store for you this week!! 


Well, the name pretty much says it all, but this new set from Melyssa really IS Toadally Awesome! From Halloween to Birthdays, with a princess AND a frog, along with several punny sayings, this set is so versatile and CUTE!! Use it for birthdays, Halloween, and whatever else you see fit!!


Toadally Awesome is a 4x4 set that includes a total of 8 stamps and will sell for $12.00.

I just LOVE Melyssa's little characters. They are always super cute! My card layout is Sweet Sunday Sketch #169. The patterned paper is some old Halloween paper I dug from way out of the back of my stash - BasicGrey Eerie. I embossed the orange cardstock with the Seeing Spots embossing folder and added a scalloped border to it. I stitched around my card edges with some white thread. I colored my  image with Copic markers. I usually color hair brown, but I dared to be different this time and went with blonde. I definitely need to work on my blonde skills! It didn't photograph well, but I used LOTS of Spica glitter pens on this image - on her hat, her dress, the frog, and even in her hair! She is extra sparkly. I accented my image panel with a Silver Chrome Viva Pearl Pen. I used some Black V-Striped Twill Ribbon and some Crystal Sparklets, both from the Ribbon Carousel, to finish my card off.

I used the Wrapped in Joy set by There She Goes for my card today. The stamps in this set can by used for either birthdays or Christmas, but I chose to go with a birthday card today. I colored my image with Copic markers and accented it with some glitter and Liquid Pearls (which I smudged...oops!). The papers are My Mind's Eye Tickled Pink. Though it is hard to see, I embossed the pink strip of paper with the Seeing Spots embossing folder and added a border with the MFT Simply Scallops Border Die-namics. I used some Kraft-colored thread to stitch around the edges. I used some White Cotton Twill Ribbon from Ribbon Carousel and made a bow with my Bow Easy to finish it off.
