MFTWSC13 Music

 Here is my card for MFT WSC13,  This was a VERY involved card although it doesn't look like it. 

I stamped the Cello from MFT Inspired By-Music in Memento Rich Cocoa, masked it and then stamped a Stampendous BG Stamp in Perfect Cream PTI Ink and heat embossed in clear.  I repeatedly stamped the flowing music notes and stamped the Treble Clef all in Rich Cocoa.

All pieces were "distressed" with Carnation Memento Ink. 

Die Namics were used on this card: Heart, Music Note and Frame.  an MFT Wood button was also used and finished off with Cat's PJ's cream thread.  I created my own flourish as see on Kim's blog moons ago with some MFT Glittered bling... they are NOT heat stick so I applied them one at a time with MINI glue dots... those things are SUPER COOL!  Ribbon from I {heart} papers was also used.

This is the inside of my card just repeating the DP and adding the die namic notes on the frame.  The sentiment is from Clearly Sentimental About Music.

Another card using TE Sketch 135.  I accidently skipped the diagonal part LOL  BUT... the four "cicles" are there... :)

Hanging Out was used along with some twine, baby clothes pins, jewel flowers, ric rac ribbon, die namics and Taylors Tiny Twinkles!

Just a fun card... :)

Anyone need a congrats card?  My friends are NOT having babies!!! LOL  Unless Joni pops out #6!  LMAO

I{Heart} Papers toys...

Played with an uninked stamp today Jolinne-In My Garden from MFT.  I was anxious to use this new (but out of stock) Fabric sticky paper I bought from I {heart} Papers.  I also used my new LilyBee Picket Fence DP.  Some PTI CS and MFT Die namics (jumbo scallop, scalloped scallops and buttons).  Also the Medium Rolled Rose die namic, I just cut a square of the sticky material and placed it onto a scrap of the red/checked DP and then cut it and rolled it.  The Pearls are BG ....

A Bit of distressing on the DP and the image panel.  DONE! :)

THIS IS FOR MEGAN... she snoozed and loosed on the material paper!!!  LMAO

MFT WSC12 Friends are Flowers

This week's sketch over at MFT... It was a super fun sketch and easy to play with... LOVE that...Sketches are a PERFECT place to start however it doesn't always mean easy to use... LOL  THIS one was.....

I used my Stephanie Pfizer's How Does Your Garden Grow set along with some Jilly Bean Soup papers and ruffled ribbon I just got in from I {heart} Papers... Now THAT is an AWESOME "store" and SO super fast in shipping... anyway... I also used the older Flower Trio die namic and the last **gasp** of my red glittered garnishments for the centers of the flowers, inside and out.  I paper pieced the dress and used a cute lil gimic from my buddy Michele Boyer, I didn't glue down the bottom but gave it a bit of a lift with my bone folder at the bottom to add dimension... LOVE that trick... THANKS MICHELE!!!! :)
I also *attempted* to add grass (like Michele) does at the bottom with my prismacolor pencils... still got some practicin to do!!!!
This is the inside all finished up and perty!!!! ;)

Have a Great Day, my mojo according to the stars is here... Judging from this card, the stars are CORRECT, LOVE how this turned out!!!!

Turning 16

March 22 my Baby Girl, Hailey Brooke, turns 16... can you believe it???  I sure can't... especially when I was in the passenger seat and SHE was DRIVING!!!!!  **gasp**

I wanted to make her a super special birthday card using her FAVE (right now) Giraffe... I grabbed my MFT Sassy n Sweet stamp set and got to work, then tossed to the can, then got to work, then tossed to the can... Lemme tell ya this card was SO hard to complete, it was SO awesome... IN MY MIND... but this FOURTH version... I really like, so I'm stickin with it!!!! 

I had stamped the "giraffe" print, was the cheetah that I colored in, then decided to use glaze pen on the spots only, didn't like that so inked the whole thing with Rich Cocoa Memento ink then embossed the whole things, there is a hint of the spots still showing which is kinda cool... I'm talking about on the "16" part which are numbers I die cut while at Corinna's house... The DP is some I got from I {heart} Papers awhile ago and added some of the flourishes from the MFT SnS Set... the ribbon was from my Kate (C_S), different pieces of the SnS DieNamic were used the sentiment was distressed with TH Inks.  The roses were a combination of types that I glued together.  While cleaning out and organinzing (again) my room I found these paper leaves in my stash and grabbed those...a bit of blingage on the frame and DONE!!!!  all in all this was a 4 hour card!!!  LMAO  Oh but I must empty my trash can now!!!!   Have an AWESOME Day and thanks for popping in!!!  :)

This round of Grave Yard has been REAL BAD... it's usually pretty simple stuff but with other things going on, fighting this damn cold that either needs to hit all the way or just GO AWAY (my choice) I have been REAL sleepy and need MAJOR SLEEP in between shifts, I did lose 3 hours to go and see this though.... LOL

Perfecting the Form!!!!


busy watching and forgot I had the camera until after the slow slider got tagged...

YUP!  FAST Game... LOL

ATC for Swap...

This is an ATC that I created for a swap.  The ATC was "who we are..." so... the loud obnoxious colors of the shoft shy roses, the royalty lookin color and the sloppy crinkly inkly ribbon, touch of bling and the Western Phrase stamp!  Me in a nutshell.

Egg Plant, Cranberry and Wild Plum alcohol inks are colors used to create the background colors! 

a Picture of me in on the back!!!  EEEK!  LOL
