MFT Guest DT ~Lets Dance

It's that time again!!!!  Time for me to take a chance on being able to play in the tub with the MFT DT!!!!  I LOVE this time of the month.  Some LUCKY GAL/GUY will win $200 worth of MFT Goodies, BUT... the BEST PART.... yea, ummmm, they open up the club for you to hang out with them and post the sneak peeks for the coming release AND your name is on Kim's Blog roll call.  No name in the tub, but... I keep praying! ;)

Jody and Joanne have challenged us to Paper Piece.  I DO love paper piecing and in fact for those that struggle... check out THIS post on Joanne's blog for a video of how to's!!!!  I am using a retired stamp ( :( ) but... it is one of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITES EVER!!!!  Amanda Baird just REALLY hits me in the gut.  You will recognize her name as the A La Mode maker... yes, those sassy girlies!!!! ;)  Anyway, I stamped Dance the Night Away onto a Cream MFT Perfect Paper Panel. Her skin and hair were colored with Copic markers.  I then stamped the dress portion 3 times on gold shimmer paper.  The dress was cut out completely, then just the skirt and THEN just the highest twirlie skirt part.  I stamped that in Gray ink and heat embossed as the shimmer paper didn't really like ink being on it! ;)  I took some SUPER itty bitty pearls and decorated the edge of the bodice with the pearls.  Now it was time to conquer the gloves... yes, it was tough, but I CONQUERED!!!!! .  Some glitter ink, glaze ink were applied to the shoes, lips and gloves... well, just glaze to the lips! ;)

  You can see the new Skyline Die Namic underneath the image, Graphic 45 DP and May Arts Ribbon.
I wanted to give ya a quick heads up... MFT is having a SALE!!!!! ;)  Hurry.....

Touch Twin Challenges~1

I bought some new markers off of the BST thread over at SCS and am thrilled.  I have been SO wanting these markers.  Shinhan Touch Twin Markers are SO awesome... I bought the "old version" but the inks stayed the same and there ARE refills, more refills coming 1st part of January along with CHA ;)  Hurry, I'm tellin ya, these TOTALLY play nice with Copics.

Now I've been watching video's from You Tube with Quixotic paperie.  Lemme tell ya, it took 20 minutes to color a face... now I've decided it's NOT patience I need to lay on the layers it's PAXIL!  LOL

BUT, being the player I am... I TRIED to lay it on, yes, I SO need more Paxil, er... PATIENCE!!!! ;)

BUT... here is my card for this weeks Touch Twin Challenge...

Well, whatdya say?  Wanna come play?  Here's the link one more time... ;)  TTC08

MFT Weekly Sketch ~ Sky Line

This week Frances has the sketch, she does the first sketch of the month, always.  She is a GREAT Sketch draw-er... LOL  LOVED this sketch, it was simple to follow without being SIMPLE... KWIM?  ;)

I used some OLD SU! DP and PTI papers.  MFT Perfect Paper Panel and a ton, I mean a TON of Paper Piecing.  NEW from MFT WTG/WTGuy :May I have this Dance and the skyline Die namic were used.  I also used Tattered Angels Charcoal Glimmer mist on the die namic and I used more Tattered angels in the sky along with Tim Holtz distress inks to give that evening sky look.

MFT Product Tour December Release ~ KelliJo

It's time for the Product Tour for MFT!  I chose to use the Pure Innocence stamp set "Holly", this is the stamp set for December.  It was also part of the VIP Kit that sold out in less than 24 hours... gotta move quick to catch the CUTE!!!! ;) 

Me being the birthday girl yesterday I felt it was fitting to use the Holly stamp set :)

I used quite a few of the wonderful die namics on this card; Little Scallop Open Strip, Simply Scallops Medium, Open Scallop Doily Oval (new product).  

Holly was stamped in memento black ink and colored with Copic markers, her dress is covered in glear glaze pen to give it that satin appearance, Christmas best ya know! ;)

The DP is from Authentique and Holiday Twine from The Ribbon Carousel was used.  I added the (can't live without) Notched Tag die namic and the Holly leaves from the Ornament set (currently sold out). A red swarovski crystal for the Holly berry and some Red Viva Pearl Pen Pears in the corners and it's done!
