Chocolates Are a Girl's Best Friend

Last night we had Stampin In Your Jammies (SIYJ) again at Paper Pretties. If you've never heard of SIYJ, basically it's a virtual stamp night for subscribers to the Paper Pretties kits. We do this once a month and have 60 minutes to complete each challenge (we have 3 challenges). Then, the votes are cast and prizes are given away for each category! It's always a lot of fun and the design team gets to play along and hang out with everybody.

Which reminds me of some MORE BIG NEWS!!! We've added a new 'Pretty Girl' (I think that's our new slogan! He He) to our Design Team --- Alli Miles!!!! I just LOVE Alli's creations, and I've been an avid stalker to her blog for a long time now! If you love Alli's work too, go over to her blog and send your congrats!

The card above was the one I created for the sketch challenge last night. I wanted to use my new MFT set (How Sweet it is) but needed a little something to fill up the 'space'. Then I had a light bulb moment!!! I got out my other MFT set (Let's Hear it for the Boy) and started playing. I wanted to use the TV, but it was facing the opposite direction. So... I stamped it on velum, colored it with Copics and carefully cut it out. Then I just flipped it over! Voila! :)

I also used the frame from the Boys set. I added the sentiment, and some other details. I drew the rug on the floor and colored it in.

The sentiment is from the Sweet set. It originally reads "Sisters and Chocolate Make Life Bearable" -- so I just colored the parts that I wanted with a SU marker and added the letter "s" to chocolate with the fine-tip. It makes this sentiment much more versatile.

  1. You are sooooo sweet. Thanks for the warm welcome. I had so much fun do SIYJ last night. Your card is beautiful!

  2. Love your card Julie- it was a fun night and you were so creative with the tv!! :)

  3. You never cease to amaze me with your ingenuity Julie! Stamping the TV on vellum and then reversing it? Genius! And your so-cool hand drawn rug brings it all together!
    I would never have known that you added the "s" to chocolate are GOOOD.

  4. This is so awesome! I love all of the special things you've done with this. Very clever, and pretty!
