I Heart You…

…there is nothing like a card full of prettiness to turn a frown upside down.

It’s just one of those days, lemme tell ya! But here’s a card that pretty much made itself last night! I was really happy with how it all came together as I was pretty much working off the top of my head.

I think working in a clean scraproom is definitely an asset – which is too bad, since after last night’s creation station, it’s not as clean as it was right before I started! Oops! A friend of mine had come over the other night to help with the scraproom overhaul and she made me promise to employ the ‘make-and-clean’ strategy since I’m more of a ‘make-and-leave-it’ kind of creator. We’ll just keep her out of the scraproom until I get that stuff cleaned up, I guess! *LOL*

Anywho, on to the prettiness:

I can’t get over how much I love how this turned out! After all the fussiness of cutting out the stamped images, it was pretty much stick and go from there! Thanks for looking!

Polka-Dot-Pie = oh so SWEET!

Posted by Catherine on January 9, 2009

…*SCREECH*

HAHAHA, now that I’ve got your attention, can I PLEASE introduce the brand-spankin’ new Polka-Dot-Pie stamp line from Marti over at Pezadoodle!

I can’t even think of what to type right now, my brain is going into creative overdrive! I opened up my package and as soon as those stamps came out, it felt like Christmas ALL OVER AGAIN! You have GOT to try out this new line!

Without further ado:

How CUTE is she? I love our almost grown-up little Pezzy! Here she is all ready for Valentine’s day! I used the super versatile stamp set and turned the separate pieces to make it look like Pezzy was swinging on a little heart swing. I didn’t even use all the stamps that came with this set!

I LOVED making her! I stamped Pezzy twice and cut her out apart from her “swing”. After I colored her (using the MCP technique with Prismas and colorless, odorless mineral oil), I glazed her shoes to make it look like little patent Mary Janes and I also glazed her heart and her heart swing!

I pulled out my brand new Valentine’s Studio G stamp sets and stamped BE MINE and the lines to make it look like the hearts were “swinging” from the heart border.

Just a closer look at all the prettiness! The paper is from my DCWV “Sweet” Stack!

Check back again tomorrow for some EXTRA yumminess to reveal! I am so excited…and hungry!
