Well, these are slightly delayed, but I wanted to share with you the projects I created for the My Favorite Things Guest Designer Challenge. The first thing that came to me was to have Flopsey bring over some carrot cake for the party. I combined the Gardener Flopsey sey and Papertrey Ink's Piece of Cake sets here. The classic and scalloped ovals were cut using my Nestabilities. The card swings open on the aged copper brad to reveal the happy birthday message. Colors were inspired by PTI's Bitty Baby Blessings patterned paper, which was also used to piece Flopsey's overalls and for the flower on her hat.
The next idea I had was to make a birthday card for Kim, owner of MFT. I chose to pair Gardener Flopsey with my Crafty Secrets stamp set Sexy Little Number. I wanted to make the card in MFT's signature colors - pink, black and white. This is a double slider card - when the pink twill is pulled on the messages pop up. Flopsey's hat, overalls, and wheelbarrow were paper pieced using PTI's Pink Patterns paper.
I have two more projects to share but I think I will save those for another day. I am leaving on a two week vacation back home to Chicago on Wednesday, so my posting will be a bit sporadic. I do have posts scheduled for you, but they will not be on a daily basis along with the challenges. I will see you in a few weeks!!! *wink*
