DS147 - World's Best Friend

Welcome to this week's addition to the Deconstructed Sketch #147!  
As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to use the new MFT You're Super stamp set and coordinating Die-namics from the Birdie Brown line. I am SO happy that Birdie Brown has been picked up by MFT!  Torico is one of my favorite illustrators! 

I chose some MFT nightshift blue, redhot,a nd smooth white CS.  I used the largest die from the MFT Blueprints 13 and cut three panels.  I love the stitching that die creates!  I then cut the panels and lined them back up with the stitching so it looks like continuous stitching around the outer edge of the card.  I stamped the little star stamp from the You;re Super Stamp set onto the smooth white CS in red hot and nightshift blue to create the patterned paper.

I stamped my image in the new MFT black licorice hybrid ink and colored her with copics:

skin - E11, E21, E00, E000, R3, R32, R30
hair - E37, E35, E53, E51
clothing - R59, R29, R24, R05, B39, B37, B34 Y28, Y23

SPDSS02 - You Did It!

Ready to play along with this month's SugarPea Designs Sugar Sketch
I've created a Graduation card featuring the newly released Hats Off to You stamp set!

I just love her sweet face!   I started with a PTI spring rain CS panel which I ran through the Big Shot wit the largest die from the MFT Die-namisc Blueprints 13 to get that stitched edging.   I chose some PP from the Family Ties 6x6 paper pad by Pebbles and matted with MFT black licorice CS.

I stamped my image in the new MFT black licorice hybrid ink and  colored her with copics.  I paper pieced her dress and used a white gel pen to add the freckles to her cheeks.

Here is the sketch:

Blog Candy!

Anyone out there interested in a chance to win some MFT blog candy?!
Anyone? I thought so! 

Did you hear that MFT has released a brand new line of hybrid inks?! These pigment based inks dry like dye inks and are permanent on paper surfaces. They are acid-free, archival, and fade resistant. Inks can be heat set on glass, fabric, wood, plastic, metal, and clay. Here's my favorite can use them with your Copics! Yep! You can! They are totally safe and now I use the new Black Licorice Hybrid ink instead of Momento tuxedo black when I am stamping an image that I am going to color!  I thought I would give a couple away so you can try them out! 

 I am also giving away one of the cling rubber background stamps. Each background measures approximately 5.75" square and will cover the entire front of an A2 card in either orientation . Each image is backed on cling foam and scroll cut, making it ready for stamping right out of the bag! Use it with a large mount, OR put it on your desk image up, ink it up, lay your card stock on it, put a scratch piece of paper on top, and rub or use a brayer to transfer the image.  Who needs patterned paper when you can make your own!  Once you try one, you'll want to start collecting all of them!  

Here's what you need to do:

1. Follow my blog or my Paper Perfect Designs Facebook page
2. Leave me a comment telling me which of the MFT stamps set or Die-namics is your fav from the April release which you can find HERE.  

That's it!   Easy as can be!   
I will announce the winner here on my blog and on my crafty Facebook page on Wednesday night!
Good luck!

MFT Release Rewind

\ Let me show you a little something I made for the Retro Sketches 109 using the new Bokeh Builder stamp set.

I used the new MFT hybrid inks in razzle berry, orange fizz, and lemon drop and then I stamped the sentiment in the black licorice hybrid ink. 

I repeated the vertical line of dots n the same colors on the inside of the card.  


Now head on over the MFT Blog for a list of the MFT designers participating in today;s release rewind!

SugarPea Designs Sweet Sneaks - Totes Ma Goats

Welcome to the final day of the SugarPea Designs Sweet Sneaks!   The entire April release will launch tonight at 9:00 PM EST in the SugarPea Designs online shoppe!  

We've got one more stamp set to sneak for you today while you wait for the release.
Introducing Totes Ma Goats!  

Now, if you have no idea what that means, you are not alone.   I am not really into watching TV or movies so I am typically clueless when it comes to pop culture kind of stuff,   Apparently this is a line in a movie.  I googled it and was edjamacated by Urban Dictionary:

this means totally in a state of being over excited and trying to act cool
Jason Segal: wanna get a sandwich with me? 
Paul Rudd: (over excited) totally... TOTES MA GOATS!

Here is my card which is also my card for this week's 

I used some woodgrain PP from the Sew Lovely 6x6 paper pad by Carta Bella and paired it with some MFT olive and hot fudge.

I stamped the image in MFT black licorice hybrid ink and colored him with copics.  

goat - E35, 47, E44, E35, E3, E33, E31, E30
cans - C5, C3, @o5, R24, G29, G28, Y17, Y15
grass and ground 0 YG97, YG95, YG93 E44, E43, E41
