My Favorite Chef

What's cookin' in your stamp room?  I cooked this one up with My Favorite Things!  She's colored with my Copics, of course, on Neenah.  The other papers used are My Mind's Eye, Bo Bunny, Basic Grey and Bazzill.  Boy that's a lot of B's!  The buttons are from my stash and the twine is My Mind's Eye.  I did use a Martha Stewart punch to edge the piece of Bo Bunny.  I do love how my little chef turned out!  Now, it's time to cook up something new!

Limited Copic Marker Challenge

Marianne changed the challenge to color with only 3 Copics, so being the smartie britches that I am, I colored her with only 2.  Yep, that's right.  2 Copics, no blender!  What a fun challenge and whether I win or not, I had a great time playing along!

School Girl Challenge

This is an image by Marianne Walker that she posted for a challenge.  The challenge was to color the image with a limited number of Copics.  The limit was set at 6, I used 4 and my blender.  I think she's pretty darn cute. 

Hello Cupcake!

Here's a little sweetie I did from My Favorite Things Pure Innocence line called Hello Cupcake!  Of course she's colored with Copics.  The paper is Bazzill and My Mind's Eye.  I used a MFT die to create my flower too!  I used a petite scallops nestie to layer her with. Added a little ribbon and "Voila!"  Isn't she cute?

For the inside I stamped my sentiment and using the MFT jumbo ric rac die I added a piece of the cupcake paper.  I love how it turned out.  Thanks for looking!

Somebunny Loves You!

Here's a cutie I created to play along with the My Favorite Things Weekly Sketch Challenge 35 and I think I'll enter it in the Charisma Cardz Challenge for Anything Goes too!   http://charismacardz.blogspot.com/ What a great sketch!  I colored the main image with my Copics (E21, E30, R02, RV11, RV32, E23, E25, E27, Y11, Y13, Y15, C0) and sponged some Tim Holtz Distress Ink around the image.  I did round the corners at the top of image and added a small strip of the same paper as the background paper I had punched out with an EK Success punch.  I cut a piece of Basic Grey and two strips of pink polka dot paper of unknown origin!  The houndstooth paper is My Mind's Eye.  The card base itself is Neenah.  I put a strip of green ribbon in the mix as well.  I stamped my sentiment, rounded the corners and sponged it with the same Distress Ink.  Layered it all up and added the cute flower I created with a Spellbinder's rose die and colored with my RV11 Copic, added the brad and voila!.  I loved creating this card and it all came together very nicely!

Cheers! to My Favorite Things Stamps

I so love a glass of bubbly!  Isn't she just adorable?  I have fallen in love with stamps from My Favorite Things!  Right now, they are definitely one of MY favorite things.  I love their sketches too as they are fresh and fun.  I also used a SU heart stamp as well to create a background paper but we'll get to that in a moment.  I stamped my main image on Neenah Classic Crest with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored her with my Copics (E30, E21, R02, E23, E25, E27, BG02, BG05, BG07, Y23 and C0).  I cut her out and added a little shading around her with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink around the edges and added my Stampendous ultra fine multi glitter to her dress with a Quickie glue pen, a little touch of Stickles to her ears and Glossy Accents on her glass of bubbly.  I set her aside and moved on to the Lasting Impressions paper piece.  I took a heart stamp and colored on it with my Copics (BG02, BG05, BG07, B05, G02 and G05).  I spritzed the stamp with some Copic blender solution and stamped my heart on the paper.  I took my Colorless Blender "0" and using the tip-to-tip method I added some stripes of color to the stamped image.  I stamped several of these hearts and repeated the same process on each one.  I punched out my tab with the same Lasting Impressions paper, folded it over, stamped Cheers! and attached it to the bigger piece with the hearts.  I cut my strip of Bo Bunny paper that had the hearts on it that inspired my stamped hearts, cut my Bo Bunny dots paper to fit and then layered the whole card on Bazzill.  I added some cute little blue-green rhinestones from Queen & Co. to finish the card off with that extra little bit of pizzazz.  I'm so please with how it all came together.  I planned to enter the MFTWSC from last week but alas, I missed the deadline!  That's okay, there are a couple of others I'm going to enter my adorable young lady in, Pile It On! PIO #35 - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and Charisma Cardz Challenges #35 - Anything Goes at  http://charismacardz.blogspot.com/.  Why not join me?  You just might win!  Here's a close-up of her sparkly dress.  It reminds me of the 50's dresses that were so sparkly!
I love sparkles, don't you?
