MFT May Blog Hop



My Favorite Things is blog hopping today, so if you haven't come here by way of Frances and you'd like to start at the beginning, the place to go is Kim's blog. If you've already been through the hop so far, what do you think of the peeks?

I've put together a little something with Stephanie Fizer's Owls and Blueberries set, which is just too cute for words! I did my coloring with Copics and Prismacolor pencils and stamped a few extra bluebell sprigs to pop up on foam adhesive. The image circle was cut with Nestabilities and layered onto a green shape cut with Labels 3 Nestabilities. I added some punched borders, some ribbon and hardware, and some paper piercing and called it done.

Next is an out-of-the-box creation using the manicure girl from Girls Day In:



I fancified her robe into a dress, drew in a sparkling new diamond and turned her into Girls Day "In"gaged :D Can't you see her sitting there as her friends line up to check out her big ol' rock? I pulled the sentiment from Essential Sentiments (which, incidentally, happens to be in the Bubble Bin this week). "Dreams Come True," another sentiment in that set, would work well, too. The dress is paper pieced, and the rest is colored with a mixture of Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. Her diamond sparkles thanks to some Stardust Stickles. I had a lot of fun with this one!

Ready for some MFT scoop? Here's what you need to know for the rest of the week:

Right now, you can find all sorts of fun tips for working with your new stamps in the How'd They Do That area of the MFT Forum on SCS.

Tomorrow night, from 8-10 pm, join us for the New Release Cocktail Party, also in the MFT Forum. We're releasing four new sets, as well as the Chocolate Kiss patterned paper packs, coordinating ribbon bundle, and coordinating Crystal Adornments. You'll also find Smooch Paint and Spring and Summer Cup O' Button Packs in the store.

During the New Release Party, we'll be announcing the winner of this month's Guest Designer Contest.

I know I said this already at SCS...but these are both such great cards Amy! Your DT's are so lucky to have you!

AlienAnessa said...

Okay, first of all, your owls are absolutely adorable and you rocked the coloring and toling of those bluebells! As you can guess from my blog, green is in my top one of fave colors, and combining it with that yummy brown is genius!!

Secondly, I am in complete awe of the "in"gaged card! The papers you chose are delicious (reminds me of my fave mint chocolate chip icecream, her paperpieced clothing is fantastic (yes I noticed how the 'thicker' parts of the material are appropriately darker than the rest!), the ribbons you chose are absolutely, perfectly divine, and her ring - wowzers!

KathyJ (Wattle) said...

Two gorgeous cards Amy!!! Love all the details you put on your cards!!

Denise (peanutbee) said...

Awesome coloring on those bluberries and I love the papers on the second card. VERY cool idea to add a ring so she's *in*gaged..hee!

dpkennedy said...

Oh these are fantastic designs! I love all the edges and embellies! Those owls are just so cute and the popped up flowers are just perfect!

Have a very happy Mother's Day!!
