Let’s Hear it for the Boys! It’s a Give-away!

Dude MFT

Hmmm…looks like this boy is in a bit of trouble.  I’m happy to say I’ve never had an experience like this (including having to wear a business suit to work)!

Well, you know… my mind wanders when I start thinking about combining sets, and My Favorite Things stamps are absolutely perfect for mixing. 

This card took a bit of planning.  I actually started by stamping a beer bottle, then masking it, stamping another and masking that one as well.  I started with only three bottles on the floor but then thought, no, there needs to be more (because he’s in LOTS of trouble).   But before adding bottles, I stamped the dude image.  I masked him, then stamped the woman from the Back to School set.   Next I stamped four more bottles, colored and cut them out and adhered each one individually in the pile.  The hat and fish plaque are mounted on dimensionals.

Since I haven’t used them in a while (and I need the practice), I got out my Prismacolor pencils to color the images. 

I used my new favorite patterned paper again, Webster’s Pages (available here), adding tiny screw brads in each corner.

I have really appreciated everyone taking a peek at my blog.  I was hesitant to start it, wondering if anyone would even be interested in what goes through my mind or how I do things.  So as a “thank you” I’m having my first give-away.  I’ve tried to cover the boys, both big and small.  I’ve included the newly released set Let’s Hear it for the Boys from My Favorite Things, an 8″ x 8″ pack of the new Little Boy Biography Collection by Cosmo Cricket (VERY cute patterned paper with alphabet and journaling cards), a set of Karen Foster mini tool charms (many of you know how much I love those!), Boy Crazy mini sprinkle brads by Queen & Co., and three yards each of red/cream striped ribbon and brown/cream striped ribbon (both May Arts).  MFT GA 1

All you need to do is leave a comment on this post (one per person, please).  You can just say hi, ask a question, whatever.  You can comment through Tuesday, August 14th.  On August 15th I’ll use the random number generator to select a winner.

Thanks again for visiting! I really appreciate your interest! :)

Cardstock:  Chocolate Chip, Papertrey Ink white     Patterned Paper:  Webster’s Pages Vintage Home Collection “Nestled”     Stamps:  My Favorite Things Let’s Hear it for the Boys, Back to School, Karen Foster mini formal snap stamps     Ink:  Brilliance Graphite Black     Accessories:  Prismacolor pencils, mineral spirits, Karen Foster mini screw brads, ribbon (May Arts), dimensionals.  Finished card size: 5 ½” x 4 ¼”.

Also love the coloring. I have the Prisma’s, just haven’t used them yet.

  171. Oh my gosh! You are seriously the queen of all that is unique stamping! You are so creative with your ideas… I mean, this one has me in awe, but I’m still in awe over the belly button ring with the jeans card in the Dirty Dozen Gallery! LOL
