It's VIP Time from My Favorite Things

Well, welcome to this month's VIP Hop for My Favorite Things. We're having a party around here with the latest Who's That Girl stamp set, called Fiesta! (part of this month's VIP KIT). If you didn't already, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop over on KIM'S blog. It's muy bueno! Here's the inside of my card:


As a reminder, the VIP KIT is being released tonight at 10pm EST. It's a limited quantity kit that allows ya'll to get your hands on this set plus some fun supplies 3 WEEKS earlier than its actual release date. The mini sentiment set that is included in the VIP kit for free is EXCLUSIVE to the VIP kit and will never be available for purchase. It's a heck of a deal! Here's a look at what's included in this month's VIP KIT:


I had a lot of fun making this card...I don't know if it's the colors from my new Stella & Rose paper (they make me happy!), or just sitting down to color or because I had a great sketch to start with (a past Wednesday Stamp Club sketch) or a combination of all of it in the middle of a relaxing day with the girls who are off for Spring Break. I paper pieced parts of her dress and made the "glow" using my Prismacolor Pencils and blended it with a stump and some Odorless Mineral Spirits. I decided to pump up the volume on her dress by adding a Mini Rolled Rose to the hipline. Both of my sentiments, inside and out, are from the exclusive Fiesta Sentiments mini set. I used these other Die-namics dies as well--Decorative Doily and Faux Crochet Die:


Ok, I think I'm going to send this one to Tom Bergeron to cheer him on for this season's premiere of Dancing With The Stars (Monday the 21st). You think he'd send me an autographed photo if I did?

Moving on...it's time to salsa on over to SHERRIE'S blog for her fantastico creation! Olè!

SUSIE Q-TIP: I am loving the look of the doily dies underneath a square or rectangular image. I did this on my last card, too. Try it.

  19. I'm tweaking the avatars a bit. The avatars which only have a blogger icon looked a little wonky. Seeing if my changes affect the anonymous avatar, the birdie.
