I had a great time at the Paper Pretties Stamping in your Pajamas party last night. I managed to finish projects for 2 of the 3 challenges...and will have to try to finish up the middle one (a color challenge) tomorrow perhaps.
This project was created for the first challenge - try a technique you've never done before. One I've been wanting to try is where you put ink on your Cuddlebug embossing folder before putting in the cardstock. I put some old olive ink on the folder then put in my certainly celery cardstock to emboss. Isn't this new tree folder awesome??? I colored in Sophia with my aquapainter and watercolor crayons and then cut her out and popped her on to the tree. I then added some stickles for maximum glitter.
The certainly celery is layered on some Rose Red, which is then layered onto the Old Olive card. And can you believe I don't have any ribbon on here?? I can't!! Of course, I may go back and add some since it's looking a little bare to me now.
This Sophia is Trim the Tree Sophia, and she's the November Stamp of the Month. Isn't she adorable? If you sign up for the SOTM club anytime before October 31st, you'll get her in November ahead of everyone else. For the rest of you...she'll be available to order starting December 1st.
And speaking of the Prettie Boutique, Christie announced a wonderful sale last night in honor of her grandmother, a breast cancer survivor. All things pink in the store are now 40% off!! No need for a coupon code, just go straight to the sale section and the prices are already marked down. Have fun shopping!!
