My Favorite Things Day 3 May Release Countdown


We’re at the halfway mark! Do you have your wishlist started? There’s a whole new round of fabulous products being shown today, including a new Pure Innocence stamp set.


Last month I was watching the fabulous Sandy Allnock on the MFT YouTube channel (video found here.). She inspired me to pick different skin colors. I watched her color, and listened to her words. I followed her lead, and changed the stamped image to what I wanted it to be. For this little girl, I wanted her to have more hair around her face, so I used a multiliner pen to draw in her hairline and a few ringlets before coloring her skin. I colored her skin using Copic colors E13, E15, E17 and then colored her hair with C5, C7, N8.


When I finished coloring the girl, I masked her legs and stamped a ground image from the Stacey Yacula Scene Builder stamp set. I gave her a light blue background, and picked a sweet sentiment.


My second card today features the FABULOUS Watermelon Slice Die-namics set.


A summer night on the back porch eating watermelon…so many wonderful childhood memories! This set made me squeal when I saw it! It took me back to those warm summer nights. I love coloring, but sometimes… I really LOVE paper piecing. And this set makes paper piecing so easy! Then there’s the Sweet Die-namics and Sentiments… my heart! They’re a perfect match for this watermelon slice. I used glue to piece the watermelon together, and did some white heat-embossing for the sentiment. I cut the word “sweet” out of the sentiment, and replaced it with the Sweet Die-namics. I brought a little extra color to the card using the Watercolor Stripes background stamp and Lemon Chiffon ink.
