You Tickle My Funny Bone

Time for another great sketch with My Favorite Things!  I did just a bit of tweaking and turning this week, but I “pretty much” stuck to the plan.

Here I’ve used one of the newer Pure Innocence sets, Prehistoric Girl.  (She’s just so fun!)  I also used Circle STAX 1 and 2 along with Fishtail Flags STAX, Tangy Orange heavyweight cardstock and buttons.

I stamped and colored my little cave girl onto X-Press It Blending Card, then cut her out and adhered to the lined paper.  After piecing her dress, I added bits of shadow using gray markers.

A simple finish to the inside.

<—Here’s the sketch if you’d like to play along.

Howdy! Time for MFT Previews!

It’s time to begin teasers for My Favorite Things‘ October release!  Today we’re sharing samples using Howdy and Western Backgrounds from Lisa Johnson Designs.

Howdy is a super fun set packed FULL of country/western goodness.

Here I’ve paired the horse image, die-cut using Circle STAX 1 and 2, along with new Western Star Border Die-namics.  Farmhouse Paper Company’s Sugar Hill patterned paper, crocheted trim, hemp cord and a Hot Fudge button were a perfect country blend.

The Western Star Border comes with two strips, one of sold connected circles, the other with the star cut-outs.  I die-cut a second solid strip from Hot Fudge cardstock to pull double duty along the bottom as a scalloped border.

On the inside, I stamped one of the many sentiments included with the set along with a coil of rope which fit perfectly into the corner.
