The black, red & green creation is totally inspired by these two gorgeous creations by Jen del Muro, which can be seen on her blog here: http://iheart2stamp.com/2008/04/11/abc-fridayi-love-this-project/, and here:http://iheart2stamp.com/2008/06/04/did-you-see-and-more-to-see/ . (Sorry, I don't know how to add the links so they look neat & tidy.....any computer gurus out there that can teach me how to do that???)
I kind of did this backwards---and created it before I found a frame to put it in. The frame will be black or white, and I'll probably give it as a gift when I get it finished.
The second creation uses a new Annie LaPoint set from MFT, called 'Scented Geranium'. Love this image! If you click on the photo, it may be easier to see, but I cut out the individual flowers (even the teeny-tiny ones!) and layered them on dimensionals for a little more depth in the main image. This DP is called 'Indian Summer' by Sassafrass Lass. I just love the colors and designs in this line!
This is another version of the black, green & red creation in the top photo in this post, just using a different color combo. I didn't have any ribbon that matched the 'periwinkle' kind of color, so I used my Copic markers to dye several styles of white ribbon and it turned out great! I love knowing that I can now make ribbon in almost any color I need.
This sparkly cupcake creation uses 'It's a Cupcake Kind of Day', another new set from MFT. These cupcakes are nice and big---perfect for paper-piecing! This green & chocolate My Mind's Eye DP reminds me of mint and chocolate-chips. The cupcake frosting is Cinnamon stickles. Hmmmm....mint, chocolate, and cinnamon....all of this is making me hungry!! The top is an SU button I've been hoarding forever, and am finally making myself use.
I hope you've enjoyed the MFT goodies I've showed you today. I've got one or two more creations to share, but I've got to add some finishing touches first. I'll be back a bit later to share them with you.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!!!
