Cute Is What I Do! from My Favorite Things Pure Innocence line is one of my favorite sets in a long time! It really lends itself to some cute paper piecing and coloring with my Copic markers. I did this little cutie in honor of their weekly sketch challenge, MFTWSC30. The base of the card is Neenah, the green and floral print is either Three Bugs in a Rug or Little Yellow Bicycle, sorry not sure at the moment. The pink gingham is Bo Bunny. I used an EK Success punch to do my scallops at the bottom. I used two Spellbinders Nesties, one for her and one for the layer in pink behind her. She, of course is colored with my Copics, E51, E30, E21, R02, Y11, Y23, Y26, Y28, B0000, B00, C0, R83, R85. I lightly airbrushed a little B0000 around her. I used another EK Success punch to do the green flower. The floral "ribbon" trim is some I picked up at JoAnn's and I had some little sparkly rhinestones in my stash for a little extra bling. I think she's adorable, I hope you like her too!

You know, sometimes you create a card and it's okay, you know, kindof cute. You're in a hurry to get it posted so you rush or you just don't feel the creative juices flowing freely so you settle for okay. And then when you least expect it, the inspiration hits and you know what you need to do to complete the card and make it better than kindof cute. My little Presley Lollipop is now complete and I think she's adorable. If you look at the previous post, you can see the big difference a few little finishing touches have made. I love Prima flowers and I so wish I could remember where the buttons came from. The punches are SU and the sentiment is by Amuse. I'm much happier with the changes made.

Here's a little cutie I created with one of the adorable images from "By Lori Designs." I absolutely adore her images and this one especially reminds me of my granddaughter, Emmaline. I wanted to do something fun and cute with her so I kept it simple making her the focal point and letting the papers provide the rest of the eye candy. The papers are Neenah, Bazzill, Cloud 9 and Bo Bunny. I also used a Spellbinders die, some lace trim from my stash and a little Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Of course I colored her with my Copics - E000, E00, E30, R20, YR14, YR16, YR18, E08, Y15, Y17, Y19, YG93, YG95, R21, E13, E15. Hope you like her!

I have only recently found My Favorite Things stamp company and I am so glad I did! For starters, the little girl looks like my granddaughter, Emmaline. These are just some of the cutest stamps I have seen, I love them! I stamped her on Neenah Classic Crest and colored her with my Copics. I paper-pieced her dress with some cute paper I think is from SU and using the same paper I layered that on some Real Red for my base. I cut her out with the Lattice Rectangles Nestabilities Spellbinder die. I also used the flower die from MFT to cut out some flowers which I layered on Prima flowers for a little more dimension and colored some pearls with my Copic R22. The blue velvet ribbon is from my stash so I don't know what company it's from. I added a little more grass than what was actually part of the stamp with my Micron pen. I think she's pretty darn cute and now it's time to enter her in some challenges!
