MFT Cocoa Holder

This is what I made for the Stitching Challenge over on SCS. I used Debbie Olson's Cocoa Holder Template to make this. The striped paper is from SEI and the brown stripes are glittery! I used a ribbon punch across the bottom to "sew" the ribbon into the paper, and the blanket stitch around the white felt is hand sewn too. I also used MFT Die-namics Polka Dot Greetings die and stamp set.
On the inside I did faux stitching with my new Silver gel pen.
And this is a cute little pure innocence girl with her dog(her hair is up in her hat)! And I paper pieced her pants, sweater, and hat, and the dog's scarf.

SSC 179 on Stamping 411

I did this card for the Stamping 411 sketch challenge this week. This is my new Lavender Scene stamp from Stampendous, and the stamp will be featured in my next class in January. This one is colored with Koh-i-noor pencils.

The polka dot paper is from A Walk in the Park from Echo Park. I stamped a PTI Fillable Frames sentiment on twill ribbon, and then ran it thru my Xyron sticker maker. I don't know why I forget to use that thing. It is so handy!

Pink & Black Monogram Set

this is an order that i received for a monogrammed gift set for a wedding present. i used a black and silver print with a pink as an accent color.
i have been trying to mix my patterns, and i like the way the Gothic Pink Stripe goes with the Medallion (both from Paper Studio). This one uses Nestabilities Label 8.
and this set uses Nestabilities Label One.

i finally was able to finish this sketch challenge, and i was too late to get it entered. oh well, at least i did it.

this is my new Stampendous Sunflower scene stamp (one that we will be using in my next class!) and the sentiment is from Everyday Button Bits from PTI. i colored this with Koh-i-noor pencils and blending medium.

Masculine Faux Notebook

This is a manly card that I made recently. The patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket, the stamp is The Car from Stampington. I sponged with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink and daubers, the car and the edges. I also punched holes at the top with a regular hole punch, and then used scissors to snip the edges so that it would look like it was torn from a wire bound book. I added a library clip from SU, and a Tim Holtz sprocket, those are so fun to work with!!

Turning Leaf Gift Set

this is a gift set that i made recently, using PTI Turning a New Leaf stamp set. it is 2 sets of 2 matching cards with envelopes and a matching vanilla candle.
i also used PTI Filliable Frames #1 die, with sentiments from FF# 1 & 5. these are stamped and sponged in Memento Bamboo Leaves.
i did a little extra "hop" with the fern leaf, to make it look shadowed. it is just a tiny detail that adds so much!

Are you sick of Clive yet?

I just had to show Clive one more time: on his way to his new home. I made a "hand stitched" label for his journey. And it cracks me up, because it looks like a Heavyweight Championship belt that he won for wrestling.

he is just too cute. maybe Kim will show him on some of their journeys to all those cool places they go. *wink, wink** hint hint.*
