For Samantha

I made this cute little door hanger for a male friend of mine's daughter. I thought it was perfect as he calls her "Princess" all the time. I used my new "Night Night Ellie" from MFT. The printed paper is from Basic Grey's Porcelain paper pad. I adhered a piece of paper from the pad to a chipboard coaster, trimmed it and sanded the edges. Next, I stamped Ellie on a piece of plain white cardstock from GKD and paper pieced her pajamas and slippers. I masked Ellie and used the star stamp from the set and added little stars all around her. I mounted the white cardstock onto another piece of printed paper and the stuck it on the coaster. I lined up the three words on a clear mount and stamped them with memento tuxexo black ink. The moon was stamped directly on the printed paper and cover with a thick layer of yellow stickles. Her hair and skin were colored with copics prior to the paper piecing. I found I had a big empty spot so I added some MFT glitter flowers colored with copics, and added a glitter brad in the centre. I then added four blue swarovski crystals around Ellie, for a little more bling. To finish I punched a hole in each top corner, fed throught some ribbon, from MFT of course :) secured it with a couple of brads. I took it to her father who will give to her when she comes for the weekend. Hope she likes it. Susan

CP Designs Inks

As may of you may already know I love Catherine Pooler's Inks!!  They ink up stamps do well with just a few light taps of the stamp to the ink, the colors all go together from each collection so no weird colors that don't go together. and the ink once wiped of does not transfer ink from one color to the next!! 
The first collection was named the Party Collection  and is composed of highly saturated bright and fun colors!!  I have used mine so much I just ordered the entire set of reinkers!!  I also can use these reinkers to watercolor with my water brush and for techniques that require more ink instead of using my ink pad!


The Party Collection
There is also two colors in the Neutrals Collection.

Now Catherine had begun releasing a new collection of colors called the Spa Collection!! These inks are a less saturated color which allows them to have more muted color.

Catherine has revealed the first 6 colors and they are Gorgeous!!



The next two colors will be revealed Monday on Facebook …

Michelle's 50th Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Welcome!! I am glad you were able to hop along with us today to celebrate Michelle's 50th Birthday!!  



You should have come here from Kelly's Blog. If you want to see the whole blog hop list or start from the beginning go to the  CAS-ual Fridays Blog
Here is my card to celebrate!!





I wanted to make a special card for Michelle, so I made my first trifold card.  The card is mostly just one layer with the Ballerinas glues to each panel. I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks and with layering and masking created the floor.  For the stage lighting I used masking paper and sponged Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet Distress inks I them sprayed water on top and picked it up with a paper towel to get a distressed look. For the stamping I used Flirty Fuchsia, Party Dress, All the Jazz, Icing on the Cake and Sweet Sixteen inks from Catherine Pooler Designs . The stamps are all from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps…
