Good Thursday evening everyone! I am super excited today--not only did I get my new Gina K stamps in the mail today but I got lots of exciting "news". I can't share my "news" with you until tomorrow, but I was spinning around the floor excited this morning. My other "#2 news" I won't be able to share with you until next month (I know I'm a tease...lol)! I will do a delayed post for you tonight so you can find out first thing in the morning. I'm going to lunch with my "lunch bunch" gal pals tomorrow, so I won't be back in my craft room until evening time. I had a blast the other nite for our "girls" nite out --we had a great time & lots of laughs (I'm still laughing a little right now--they know what I mean)...we'll definitely be having another nite out soon--Too Fun!
Ok, my card today uses my new Gina K stamps called "Little Tees" and it was designed by Melanie Muenchinger--too cute! I love her stamp sets--always fun to use. This card turned out a little differently than what I had planned, but I really like it. I started by stamping the t-shirt onto my patterned paper first and then cutting off the sleeves w/ the intention of making a sleeveless shirt. Then I thought it needed a vest so I stamped the t-shirt again onto SU's cs--after staring at it for a few minutes, the vest idea turned into a cardigan w/ pearls. I just cut a v out of the t-shirt and cut off the sleeves--then I drew button holes and added pearls on the other side. So my t-shirt turned into a sundress with a sleeveless cardigan--ya never know what I might turn out! I added a hat from MFT's "Can Ya Dig It" set and a purse from Gina K's "Retro Boutique". I added turqoise trim to the hat and some stickles to the flower centers--the purse got stamped onto the lighter cs and then I added a flower that I had cut out from the dp w/ a pearl in the center. A girl's gotta have some bling so I added diamond stickles to the purse and the collar of the cardigan. The sentiment I made on MS Word and printed out onto my cs, it was then cut out with one of my tag nestabilities and mounted w/ dimensionals. I love the look of crisp white cs embossed with the CB swiss dots folder--just one of my favorites I think. All of the cs is from SU and the dp is from SEI's "Poppy" paper stack. That does it--hope you like my altered t-shirts!!
I'll be back in the morning with my exciting "news" that I can't wait to share with you all!! Until then...
