Whee!

Make sure you grab a cuppa before going to all the fabulous teasers today. You can get the full DT list of teasers HERE.
I have 2 projects to show you today!
Can you say Whee?... It is teaser day for this month's Pure Innocence collection from My Favorite Things! Sure to be my favorite day of the month. I love this new line and you will see a lot of it from me!
Do you like the jewel wind coming off her swing (she is getting some serious air)...lol! I actually used the little index sheet for paper piecing her dress (that is why the pattern is so tight), it was the perfect scale for her little dress. The crocheted flower...made by me and a yummy Amy Butler brad.
Here are all this card deets
Stamps:
Start the day with whee! (Pure Innocence) by My Favorite Things
Ink:
Espresso Adirondack (Ranger)
Paper:
Earth Love (Cosmo Cricket) Kraft, White (Prism)
Accessories:
Markers, Multiliner (Copic)

Prismacolor Pencils
Airbrush system (Copic)
Jewel Flourish (Prima)
Flower (Crocheted by me)
Amy Butler Brad (K&Co)
Circle Die (Spellbinders)

I wanted to show you a nice close shot so that you could see a couple things that I added. I took my multiliner copic pen and added those 3 little hash marks behind her to give a look of movement. I also added the brown shading around her with pencil and gamasol.

Here is the other fun project I made with this stamp. I actually made it for my daughter for her stocking. You can buy these mugs that you can personalize with photos but I thought it would be far more fun to stamp! She was thrilled when she opened it as no one at school will have one like it.
I had to be careful not to get carried away with the "do dads" as there is a very small space to slip this paper into (guess they weren't thinking of the layers that scrapbookers use).
I used the Earth Love collection by Cosmo Cricket for this one too. Gotta use up all them yummy scraps!
I also added a close shot of the sweet girl. I used my daughter's hair coloring and matched the green of the dress to the paper.
I can forsee that my daughter will want me to "change it up" for her every so often so look for more little mug inserts from me.

Enjoy surfing around to the other teaser girls today as there are a lot more pure innocence images....I had to restrain myself to only show you two projects today! Come back on release day blog hop (January 6th) as I have another cutie to show you then!
Enjoy your day!

I've been sub'ing to your blog forever now and I just got a new computer (previous one was 10 years old) and obviously the monitor is incredible and really for the first time I can see your coloring work, I'm blown away! If the designs themselves aren't amazing, HOLY buckets, unbelievable!
