It's Teaser Time!!!!


Welcome to the August Release Day 1 of Teasers! I am SO excited to be able to play along and just LOOK at what I get to play with... YES!!! A BRAND NEW Stephanie Fizer set... it's called "How Your Garden Grows" OK, so can you say CA-UTE? YEP!!! I thought you could!!!! :)

This Mary Mary Quite Contrary (tee hee) Image was stamped onto a piece of One Sheet Wonder paper, she was masked off and then the stems for the flowers were stamped using Memento Cottage Ivy. I used the 3 different sizes of blooms and the Rolled Flower Dienamic for a bit of variety and texture. The centers of all 5 flowers have a bit o blingage in them using glitter. Mary's dress was colored with Copic Markers and then the clear glitter pen was added and then you HAVE to use this tip... Jen Del Muro has posted this numerous times and I finally got around to doing it the correct way... Rubbing Alcohol in your H2O pen (aqua brush). it totally helps smear that stuff around and keeps it from having lines... do you SEE THAT SHINE??? YEP!!! Rubbing Alcohol is the trick... Thanks Jen! :)

I mounted my image piece onto MFT GumDrop Green paper and then all of that was mounted onto the new Berrylicious paper from MFT. A big ole bow created using some Crinkly ribbon from my Buddy Michele (delfinaus on SCS) and it's MARVELOUS!!!!! :)



For my next card I used the new Clearly Sentimental set ... Clearly Sentimental about Gardens. It has SO many beautiful sentiments and they fit many occasions whether a card for a garnedning friend or just a "just because" kinda card...it'll be a frequent grabber set for me! ;)

I have had this pack of DCWV Fall Colors white core paper for several years, I am a Jewel Tone LOVER and haven't been able to part with it in all of my downsizing and boy am I glad I didn't... I saw this ribbon in a new found LSS (save that story for another time ) and KNEW I had to use it for a sneeky peek for the gardening set... I LOVE it when that happens... I used the Framed Greetings Die (currently sold out)and the stamp set that comes with it (it took me a couple tries to line it up then I followed Jody's tip ;)). I used a SU Punch for the slits to run the ribbon through, mounted it on the CS that I cuddlebugged and sanded. I then mounted that onto another piece of the DCWV paper distressed the edges ever so slightly and mounted all of that onto some PTI White. I used Copper Viva Pearl Pens for my accents in the corner and DONE!

Well Whatcha' think? Pretty darn amazing already huh? Yea, well just wait til you see what the rest of the MFT Daring Diva's have in store for us, go to KIMS BLOG and find out!!!!

Have an AWESOME SNEEK PEEK HOP and Thanks for visiting!!!!!
