Hey all! I don't think I've had a chance to mention here that I'm now a design team member for Scrapbook Queens. They're a new store that's just down the highway from me, but still close enough to be considered the local in local scrapbook store (LSS). When I walked in for the first time I was ecstatic to see all the new product they were carrying. Of course I was overjoyed to see that they were carrying MFT stamps as well. And their crop area is spacious and beautiful.
So these are the cards I made with our first design team kit. We used Echo Park's Happy Halloween papers and MME Haunted papers. We also got some yummy Jenni Bowlin buttons and some pretty MME brads. I decided to use all MFT stamps which if you're a local reader, you can get at Scrapbook Queens. If you're not local, they're available in the MFT store.
I knew right away that I wanted to pull out Little Loveosaurus. And I think I kept this card generic enough that it could pass as a birthday card as well. I used some copic blending solution on a washcloth and pressed it to the coloured image to get the texture you see. Love that effect! This layout was from last week's sketch challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers.
My next card features one of the Pure Innocence images - Honey Bee. I paired her with that gorgeous glazed cardstock and used the reverse sides of the MME papers. Those brads and that button were almost too nice to use - but I caved in the end cause they look so good on the card. The white trim is also from Scrapbook Queens, I picked it up last time I was in there. This is a Mojo Monday layout from a couple of weeks ago.
And finally I used Li'l Pumpkin for my last card. i couldn't resist when I saw that Echo Park pumpkin paper. I paper pieced her dress and cropped her with my circle nestabilities (because someone spilled something on the bottom of my image - a happy mistake). There's more of those awesome buttons & brads and I added some satin ribbon. This started as another older Mojo Monday layout, but I had to play with some of the placement and it's not quite true to the sketch anymore.

Thanks so much for stopping by. It will probably be a bit quiet here until after Christmas but I'll be popping in and out with a couple of posts. Merry Christmas!
