Nothing Better...

I think there is nothing better on a hot Labor Day weekend than ice cream...and here is my Ice Cream Cone Card. Doesn't it look yummy? This is another MFT (My Favorite Things) set...I love it! I colored the images with my PrismaPencils and blended with gamsol. This has to be my favorite coloring technique. The DP is from the big pack I purchased at Costco last year....and I still have a ton of sheets left. *grin* Solid CS is SU! Pretty in Pink and Chocolate. Ribbon is from a ribbon share.
I'm pretty happy with the way this card came together.

In honor of Labor Day I will be uploading some blog candy on Monday evening. Be sure to check back if you like Halloween.

My First MFT Card

Would you believe this is my first MFT (My Favorite Things) card? I have had my eye on a couple sets of MFT for a while now and I finally broke down and purchased them. WooHoo...but my poor Visa is crying ouch! *grin*
This card
is What's Up Cupcake? and would you believe my very first cupcake stamp?!?! I'm always a bit late in purchasing the latest trend. What was I thinking???? *sigh* I just love the pink/black combo and think it worked perfectly for what I had in mind for this card.
Now on to the details: CS:Black (bazzill) SU! Pretty in Pink, Ran the pretty in pink through a cuttlebug folder then snipped the corners with the SU! ticket punch. Cupcakes are stamped in Palette Noir and the "frosting" is SU! pretty in pink with pink glaze embossing pen used for "sprinkles". The pink glaze embossing pen was also used for the cupcake liner. I added pink stickles to the top of each cupcake for a bit of bling. SU! pink rhinestone for the circle sentiment which is popped up on dimensionals.
I think I'm now hooked on MFT! *smile*

Imagine your plane crashes on an island somewhere in the South Pacific. You survive and all you have with you is your carry on filled with your absolute favorite stamping essentials..

Our challenge was to use as many of our favorite things for a card...."Make a card using one of your favorite A Muse stamps, your favorite ribbon, your favorite color or A muse notecard, your favorite layout, your favorite accessory, your favorite punch, etc. Use as many of your favorites as you can!!"
I think I got quite a few of my favorites included in this card. Love how it turned out.
