Friday Focus – I Like You Just the Way You Are + GIVEAWAY

Hello, all!

In today’s video I’m creating a card using the cute, new Purrfect Pair stamp set from Mama Elephant (SSS | ME). Aren’t those kitties adorable!? There’s a coordinating die set (SSS | ME), too! I stamped the kitties perfectly using a MISTI (see giveaway info below) and colored them with Copic Markers.

The tag was cut using Paper Smooches’ Gift Tags 2 dies. And the card base was embossed using an embossing folder from Sizzix.

Iliana, the creator of MISTI, was kind enough to offer a MISTI to one of my readers! For your chance to win a MISTI, please enter the giveaway below.

NOTE: The MISTI I showed in the video was an earlier version of the MISTI. The latest version is screen printed. Please see this video for proper use and care of a screen printed MISTI. Also, there are updates at their blog.

Friday Focus – You’re Spectacular

Happy Friday, everyone!

Today I’m playing with the new Incognito stamps from Paper Smooches (available from Simon, or directly from Paper Smooches). Super cute! I used Memento Gum Drops Dew Drops inks to stamp all the glasses, and then colored in the lenses with a black marker to make them look like sunglasses. I coated the lenses with Clear Wink of Stella and some Glossy Accents to make them shine.

Hope you enjoy!

Friday Focus – Simon Ugly Sweaters + Blog Hop

Good morning, all! Today is Friday so I have a new Friday Focus video for you. But I am also taking part in the Simon Says Stamp Cold Hand Warm Heart Release Blog Hop. Lots of new product was released overnight at Simon, including some that I designed. You can see the entire release HERE, which includes new embossing powders and ink pads, too.

Here are all of my new designs from this release. I’ve added them to my page with everything I’ve designed for Simon, too…

For the blog hop today I got to play with the Ugly Sweater stamp set, plus the additional stamp set called Sweater Words & Appliques. I LOVE this stamp set because you get to create your own ugly sweaters! So much fun! I colored the sweaters with Copic Markers. :)
