I'm Such a Tease!

Sorry to have teased ya'll yesterday in saying I'd have another MFTeaser up so soon! Today has been was a whirlwind of a day with the kids getting out of school for summer and all! Will it slow down or just get worse? That is yet to be seen! So better late than never, right? Do you want one or two MY FAVORITE THINGS teasers? Ok, twist my arm, I'll show you two more!!! The first one is a little "swiveller". It's from the new set, Congrats All Around which features some fun stamps that are perfect for circle scallop punches or Nestabilities.
It's just two of the Nestie circles attached at the top with a brad for the "swivel action" to open it. Anytime I see an opportunity to use those little key brads, I go for it! I think they are so CUTE!

The next one is another card from the set, Here's the Scoop. I thought it would be fun to use this sentiment with the ice cream cone right after one scoop falls off!! I masked each "dip", curving them a little as I went (start at the top) and one of them just plopped right off!! I hand-drew in the little melty part, again using my Creative Memories Fine-tip black pen, (just so you know it's not part of the set) and it wasn't hard at all. I colored the ice cream cone with my Prismacolor pencils this time and used OMS to blend it, as they were getting a little bit jealous of my friends, the Copics.

SOOOOOooooooOOOO? Are YOU coming to the release party? Come on, you know you WANT to!! HERE are the details! Oh, I didn't tease you enough here? Let me just add one more little tidbit--TWO new Design Team Members for My Favorite Things will be announced in the MFT forum tomorrow night!! WHO will they BE?????

TIP: When masking, stamp your "fake image--the masker" on as much of the sticky part of a Post-It note as possible. Cut it out and now you have an instant mask that no adhesive or tape needs to be applied to! When finished with the masker, stick it in with that stamp set for future use.

  5. Cuteness! Okay, now you had the same idea as ME! ;-) I was going to do a scalloped note with my nesties, but didn't get around to it, and also was thinking of a plop off the top of my cone the other day, but was pressed for time.

    Great minds my friend.

    Adorable job! See you tonight!
