WSC – Color Challenge (06.16.2010)

Happy Wednesday and happy VIP Day!!!  Today’s WSC is a color challenge using the 3 new ruffled ribbons in the VIP Kit; Tomato, Celery and Sunshine (or Red, Green and Yellow).  We’ve not had a color challenge before, so I’m quite excited!

This week I borrowed an idea from Barbara, and created a flower pot card.  I used In My Garden Jolinne as I hadn’t had a chance yet to ink her up, and she was simply begging for attention.  Who could refuse that face?  Not me!

I traced Barbara’s flower pot card (as I am it’s proud new owner!) onto Jellybean Green card stock, and after it was scored and folded I added some Copic marker to the inside edges to create depth.  I printed out Red Gingham DIGI paper on cream cardstock to age it a bit, which worked!  WOOT!  And then…take a deep breath….I SEWED.  I truly swore this day would never come, I would not sew on paper, but I caved.  Mind you, I have MUCH to learn about my new toy, so bear with me.

I stamped Jolinne on a Cream Perfect Panel, and colored her using Copics.  I added a pocket to her dress with the Gingham DIGI paper to tie it in.  Maybe I’ll be good enough to sew it on someday!

I finished it off with Sunshine and Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics, Earth Girl Felt and Cotton Twill.

Fabulous Friend Julie Masse

Hi all!  I’m back today with a new Fabulous Friend Julie Masse.  I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Julie several times, and she is truly one of the sweetest souls around!

Before I show off her DELIGHTFUL project, let’s get nosy:

What is your signature move?  Is there one style or technique that seems
to adorn your every creation?

I don’t know about a signature move but I love to add bling to most every project!  Anytime I see the opportunity to add a “Jewel” I go for it!  With the different colors and sizes available now it’s fun to add a little touch here and there.

What’s your favorite MFT set and why?

Favorite MFT?  Isn’t that like asking what child you love the most?  Ha!  I first fell in love with WTG and her cute style! Of course, when Pure Innocence came out I fell in love with those as well – along with the rest of the known stamping world!  I think currently I just love Little Loveosaurus, it’s such a fun little boy set and different from other boys sets out there!  I love the “RAWR” stamp!

Any funny stamping stories?  Glitter mishaps??  SPILL!

I can remember not long after I got on my first design team we had regular team challenges.  I don’t remember what the challenge was but I will never forget that I was totally stumped and in the end made about the ugliest card I’ve ever seen!  It wasn’t the stamps fault (lol!), in fact it was a cute old MFT set with a turkey.  The person (who shall remain nameless) I had to send it to didn’t let me live it down for quite some time – she kept it on her desk, a constant reminder of what NOT to do when stamping!  Thankfully the turkey card got lost and can only haunt my dreams! :)

Check out this adorable Beach Bum card!!!  EEK!  And the Cloud Trio Die-namics, and the tie dye bathing suit….oh heavens!

Please hop over to Julie’s BLOG and let her know how much we appreciate her time and talent!!!

WSC – Earth Girl

Happy Wednesday!  I am back today with a new Wednesday Stamp Club, and today’s challenge is to keep it earthy!  In colors, or textures, or even by using the new Earth Girl felt, buttons or WTG Goes Green stamp set.

For my card, I created an anniversary card for Camster who will be stopping by tomorrow, coincidentally on her 9th wedding anniversary.  And since I don’t have to mail the card, chances are good she will get it!  SNORT!

I used Grow Love, My Fave Cork, Jumbo Scalloped Die-namics die and Earth Girl Buttons along with a Fossil Scalloped note card.

And now how about some GOOD NEWS??? The Cloud Trio, Jumbo Scallop and Grosgrain Texture Board are back in stock!!  You can find them all in the Die-namics category.

Need even more good news?  Today ONLY (06.09.2010) is a 4 for $50 day!  Need to catch up on some recent MFT Releases?  Now’s your chance!  Valid on in stock sets only.
