Fight Like a Girl-MFT

I am sooooo sorry I am late today with this post!  his week has been INSANE!  I started a a local University this week and I planned on taking care of all last minute details on Monday.  Oil change, grocery shopping, looking at the map of the HUGE campus to figure out where to park and to figure out where my classes were located.  While at the dealership waiting for the car to be completed I was passing time on Facebook and I saw a post about the university welcoming students back for the first day of classes.  WHAT?!?  School started on Tuesday it was marked IN INK on my calendar I was all planned out!  I called the University and NOPE classes actually started that day.  OH MY!  So My car was completed and I rushed home and through a few things in my backpack and ran out the door to drive to school (about an hour away) and it really was a sink or swim moment for me!  I was about 15 minutes late for my first class and 20 minutes late for my second class and it was a VERY insane day.  I really hit the ground running and feel like I haven't stopped since!
OK so that has been my crazy week and that is why I am late posting!

Here is my card featuring the fight like a girl a la mode by My Favorite Things.  his is just a simple card!  I made this for a friend of mine that will be celebrating a year in remission on Tuesday. 

I hope you guys a have a fabulous upcoming week and you still have a few days left to enter in this months challenge!  We have a new challenge on Wednesday!

Happy Stamping!

Willow with a cocktale

Hi All!

Hope you are staying warm as the cold weather is coming in!  I will keep this short and sweet today !
I used the adorable Willow with a cocktail!  She was super fun to color and she inked up so clean and it was such a nice impression. I was really impressed with that!  Some stamps I have to stamp a few times to get a perfect impression and this one was the first shot!  I used some design paper from my minds eye and I kept this really clean.  I did not add a sentiment yet because I am not sure what I might use this for in the future.  Of course she was colored with my copics!

Have a great week!

ICK I'm later and feel better!

It has been such a busy, busy week here!  I enjoyed my vacation so much from school but this last week I have been making sure I have everything ready to be able to start school this next week.  It is hard to get back into school mode!  I have been enjoying being a bit lazy and I cleaned my stamp area. 

Part of my vacation has been working ahead.  And I mean WAY ahead!  I have my images colored for all design team projects through March!.  and I've had my January projects completes since the first week.  I am putting this in print because this is the FIRST time that has ever happened.  This is usually my intention all the time though :)

OK so for this weeks project:

If you couldn't tell I am completely IN LOVE with this MFT A LA MODE!  I have used this for a welcome baby, a seasons greeting and a get well soon card!  It really comes down to the sentiment so have fun with all the different images!  I layered this a lot and stamped the bear twice.  once on copic paper to color and the other on Cosmo Cricket Design Paper for the bow and I used pop dots to layer it all.  the twill ribbon, brads and dies are all from my stash!

Older Paper Prettie What Not

This was my very last card created as a Pretty Girl!  I loved being on their design team but I have many, many crafty things that weren't getting much love and this is my first semester at a University so I really want to make sure that what design/craft commitments and school commitments were done with as much effort as I possibly could!  Thanks tons to Heather and Jackie for a wonderful year as a Pretty girl!

Uptown Girls Calendar Page

Hi all!  I was at one of the big chain stores over the holidays and they had a bunch of 2012 calendars and these 12x12 picture frames.  I thought it would be a cute idea to make a calendar page for each month and then I can write any info on the calendar.  My plan is take photos throughout the month and do a 2 page layout following each month.  I thought this would be an abbreviated version of that Project life I have been seeing everywhere.  Before I commit to documenting weeks and days I need to see if I can do a short month in a view first. 

 I used the super adorable Uptown Girls by Stamping Bella.  I colored them in and cut them out.  I then Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz!  OMGosh am I in love with this stuff.  I use a lid to an old shoe box and spritz away.  there is sooooo much glittah and bling in one little spritz.  It seriously made my heart sing with joy!

Hope you enjoyed this weeks project!!!

MFT GD---Get Well Soon!

Hi!  Hope you guys are having a fabulous January so far :)  I am on vacation from school until the 24th of this month so I am trying to get my stamp room/office/hubby's office all clean and organized so as soon as school starts I can keep up on my design commitments and study and not be surrounded by boxes!  I am proud that I am getting rid of sooo much stuff and that I actually can find the stuff I am keeping.  OK enough chit chat! 

I was able to find some time to join in the MFT Guest Designer contest found HERE.  The challenge was to Paper Piece!  So much fun!  I have really liked the look of cutting out layers and creating dimension so I have been doing that a lot lately.  Plus I LOVE the a la modes!  They are adorable!  I used Oh Baby on my project. 

I had my image all colored up but I wanted to wait to complete my card until my package of fabulous dienamics arrived!!!  I stocked up with the MFT after Christmas sale!

 I stamped the image on neenah white paper and colored with copics.  The design paper is from Cosmo Cricket-Material Girl-In Stitches.  I used the Open Bracket border dienamic and the mini tab quartet die.  Can I just say that the mini tab collection is a MUST HAVE!!!!  I love it cause it fits soooo many sentiments!  The sentiment is from MFT Who's That Girl Rain or Shine.  The sentiment is actually straight but I punched out the tabs and used it as a guide to curve the clear stamp on the acrylic block.  It was a perfect fit!  I love that this image doesn't just have to be a baby card!

A quick tip!  If you would like a layering mat for your mini tab sentiment layer then take a pencil and trace around the die and cut it out!  Worked perfectly here!

Supplies Used:  Stamps: MFT-A la mode (Oh Baby), MFT-WTG (Rain or Shine) Paper: Neenah, SU Old Olive, SU So Safron, Cosmo Cricket, Copics: Sketch and Ciao-Skin (R20, E00) Hair (E27, E47, E55, E25)  Bear (YG63, YG67, RV21) Pants and Shoes (B45) Shadow (N1)  Punches/Dies: Corner Rounder punch, MFT-Open Bracket Border, MFT-Mini Tab Quartet Dienamic Other: Making Memories brads, Twill ribbon, Cuttlebug Polka Dot embossing folder.

OCS January Challenge.....

Hi all!  Happy, Happy New Year!  2012 is going to be great!!!  Lots of fun stampy time ahead!

This months fabulous challenge is to use Red, White and one other color.  I kinda cheated cause I colored my sunflower with oranges and yellows :)  The other color that I did pick was pink.  This card is pretty thick because the main layer is popped up on the white base, the nestie cut outs are popped up on that layer, la la rosie is cut out and popped up and I stamped, colored and cut out a 2nd flower and that is popped up on the original.  I really like how that adds dimension and it is such a cute card and image!
