MFT Blog Hop and video!

Lots to show you and talk about today....in my mad prep for leaving to CA I got a chance to do something fun and creative with this month's VIP set from My Favorite Things! Woohoo!
We are doing a blog hop to celebrate the day so if you are coming here from Patti's Blog you are hopping along just fine....If you are coming straight to my blog you may want to start at the beginning of this fun hop which is none other than the fabulous KIM!
What is VIP?
VIP is your one day chance to purchase this kit (which includes this awesome new stamp set) 2 weeks BEFORE it's official release! I know how I love to get the "new stuff" early!
Here is what is in the kit:
Lovin’ from the Oven (adorable new WTG set!)
Bakery Blend Buttons
Bakery Blend Ribbons
Sugar Glass Glitter
Sakura Clear Glaze Pen
Plus receive a FREE Clearly Sentimental about Food stamp set (value $9)
I had this tin from yummy Christmas goodies (that are now gone) that I decided was too perfect of a size to throw away! I had just about completed my card when I thought a utensil tin would be a perfect companion to my card! As you all know, I love to play with fabric and I decided while I was at it why not create a little video to show how I color fabric....more on that to scroll down....
Here is a close shot of the card. I used the petite papers from Webster's Pages. This patterned paper was PERFECT, as I covered over the image that was on my patterned paper with this image from "Lovin' from the oven". The only little accents that I added were the little scalloped valence that is at the top, I popped it up a little for dimension. I sewed some lace trim to the border and paper pieced her apron.
Here is a close shot of the image....I added a little of chocolate liquid applique to the rim of the bowl. I don't know about you but I am a messy baker...just like I am a messy crafter! LOL!

Here is a close shot of the tin. I measured the circumference of the tin and added 1 inch so that when I sewed it together I had a 1/2" seam allowance. The little plaid square was a scrap from somewhere...? I stamped and colored my image on fabric. The video below shows how I color fabric with copic markers. After coloring I cut it out with my nestability die and ran it through my creatopia to apply fabric adhesive to the backside. Peeled it off like a sticker and stuck it to my tin. I added a few buttons and chipboard utensils for accent and I was done!

Alright! You are not done yet....keep on hoppin' there is a lot of great stuff out there! Next on the hop is the fabulously talented SUSIE! Go and check her out!

I'm so excited for CA...I just received my class lists for the certifications and have a lot of familiar names on there....how fun! See you all there!

I just found your blog a couple of days ago and have been pouring through all of your old posts.

I love your style, and am getting tons of inspiration for my own cards!

I have a question for you. I am fairly new to card making and wanted to know if you use standard envelops for your cards. I noticed that on many of your cards there are embellishments or other things that overhang the edges of the card, as well as dimensional objects on your cards. Do you find that your cards remain undamaged with standard envelopes?

Love all of your tutorials, they have been so helpful for me!

carole (TruCarMa) said...

WOW, Sherrie! This is incredible! And that little drizzle of chocolate is just the perfect detail. You are too clever! So wish I was going to be able to give you a hug at CHA... I was supposed to be there, but then got the word last Friday that we'd be starting a new therapy for Carter. *sigh!* Maybe next year? :)

hobbydiva said...

This is amazing! I love the tut for coloring with copics on fabric!!!!

Sherrie said...

Tracey S....welcome to my blog! To answer your question...most of the embellishments that "overhang" the edges of the cards are soft (like ribbon or fabric) and can be tucked under or folded over when placing in an envelope. I will do that or go one size up in envelope to fit.
Thanks for the question!

kafranci said...

Love all your creations and the color combo's are amazing!!!!

JeanFB said...

Great tutorial, Sherrie! I've been thinking about coloring on sticky-back canvas, but didn't know if that would drain my Copics of ink. You gave us some great tips... I'll have to go try it out. Love the card, too! :)
