Just Lovely & Snow Princess...MME Challenge #19 54

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, January 18, 2011 @ 12:23 PM | , ,

Hi there! Here to share what I did with my day off from work! I made a card and layout for this month's My Mind's Eye Challenge No.19 which includes a card sketch and a scrapped layout sketch. I love making cards and scrapping layouts so I played along with both.
First up is a card made based on the MME sketch where the theme was "miscellaneous". This card features stamps from both My Mind's Eye Lost & Found/Market Street/Adore & Union Square/Perfect stamp sets all showcased on gorgeous patterned paper from the following collections: My Mind's Eye Lost & Found/Madison Avenue/Girlfriends & Madison Avenue/Sisters.
I inked up the crown from Lost & Found/Market Street/Adore with VersaMark ink, embossed with white embossing powder then used a S4-116 Standard Circles SM to cut/emboss the image which I then layered on a doily made using a S4-293 Lacey Circle die template. I added several pink pearls from Want2Scrap which by the way will be releasing a special product called "Nestabling" and coordinates perfectly with many Spellbinders die templates. Please feel free to check it out for yourself - click HERE to see all the fabulous products!
Next is my LO based on a "Winter" theme featuring my sweet daughter Angie while on a ski/snowboarding trip to Aspen.
This gorgeous sketch by Anam Stubbington allows for a lot of room to fill up using many of my favorite products!
The PRINCESS sentiment is from Lost & Found/Market Street/Adore stamp set. After inking up the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I used a S5-023 Mega Ovals LG die template to cut/emboss the image then layered it on top of a polka dot label from Waltzingmouse Holiday Labels No.14 which was cut/embossed using a S4-290 Labels Fourteen die template.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day and maybe find some time to be creative :) Be Sweet!
