This is the Scalloped Scallops die cut.

I used felt for my clouds. This is just felt I picked up at Michaels. Kim is going to be carrying wool craft felt that I can't wait to get my hands on! I found that if I add a piece of copier weight paper on top of my felt the die cuts easier through the felt.
So here is my cutting stack on my Cuttlebug. Plate A, Plate B, felt, die cut, copier paper, plate C. It cuts clean and easily!
Here is a close-up of my clouds. I added a little sun peaking above the clouds. Then added machine stitching, ribbon, a button, and a sentiment for the set finish it off.
If you line up the die cut with the edge of the paper you know it will be straight and you lose very little paper. My cutting stack here is plate A, plate B, paper, die cut, and plate C.
Here is the inside of my card using the Clouds and Jumbo Scallops again. So quick and easy, I love it!!

Here is my card using the new WTG Top Shelf. The image is stamped on a Cream Perfect Paper Panel. Her dress is paper pieced and I colored with Copics and colored pencils. I added Stickles to the bottles in the window. To make the valance, I used a scalloped border punch and cut the edges at a slant. Ribbon from the Royalty Collection, lace and rhinestones finish it off.
On the inside I used a sentiment from the Top Shelp Sentiment set. I made a pocket to hold a gift certificate.
MFT is release an additional stamp set tonight, Sheltering Tree, and the Sheltering Tree Digi Paper Pack. I have to say this is my favorite digi pack! Love the colors and the paper with the clouds is just so fun!
I stamped the tree in Memento Brown and colored with copics. Then I stamped the leaves in green and cut out a few extras to add to the tree and sponged the background. I sewed around the edges and added some grassy hills. The sentiment is included in the set.
Here is the inside. Just had to add another little hill!

Tonight I am working with the stamp set Sweet Spring Jolinne! I made a little room decoration for a little girl I know who loves to dance!
I stamped the images in Memento Black Ink and colored with copics. The skirt on the dancer and the bunny are paper pieced. On the skirt for the dancer I added a small ruffled ribbon before I glued it down. The sentiment is included in the set.
To make the banner at the top I used chipboard pieces and glitter letters that I colored with Copics to match the project. The project is mounted on a 8x8 piece of chipboard. I added some machine stitching, ribbon tied with a button and twine, more of the ruffled ribbon and a border punch.
Here is a close up of the stamp. You can shop for this sweet stamp set and all the new releases HERE.
Now it is time to hop on over to the next blog on the hop. Next up is our Guest Designer for April, a very talented stamper, a sweet person, and my friend, Kerry!

For my invitation I stamped the image in Memento Black Ink and colored with copics. The shirt and the packages are paper pieced. I rounded the corners, added ribbon from the Royalty Collection, black lace, pearls, and sentiment from the Baby Bump set.
Here is the inside of my invitation. I used a combination of the the sets Make the Date and Invitation Only to create the inside of the card. The edges are sponged with pink ink and I cut out and added the Baby Bump shirt for a little embellishment.
For my party favor I used the Easter Basket template, using paper that would coordinate with the invitation. I added a bow, more of the black lace, pearls, and a sentiment from the Clearly Sentimental About Babies set.

The image is colored with copics and her dress is paper pieced. I used a glitter pen on the ice cream. I used my nestibilities to cut her out and the papers behind her. I rounded all the corners. I added lace, ribbon tied with a button and twine, and a little ice cream charm I have had in my stash for ages!
To make the cone and the handle I used a pattern from Mel's Blog and then I embossed it with a cuttlebug folder and sponged on some distressing ink. I colored my PI girl to match the card, cut her out, and attached her to the cone.
