I've got a Little 'Tees' for you!

Howdy all! First I have to say how thrilled I am to be
Melanie Muenchinger's guest designer for the next few weeks! OMG what a surprise that was! I have been a fan of Mel's every since she came out with her first set, which is about the same time I discovered making cards. I first discovered Gina's Blog, and then found SCS, and then Mel and her stamps and have been hooked every since!

When Mel told me that this month's release were 'different' than her others, I didn' know what to expect. Then the mail ran and I was like, WOW!! Immediately my brain was just bombarded with ideas for this set! OMG! Talk about a versatile set! Not to mention how much FUN you can have designing these little T-shirts! I feel like a fashion designer! And some of my 'old school' came out too in the T-shirts, which you will be seeing I'm sure! LOL!

For this preview, it was a hard choice for me to choose, so I asked Mel what she thought and we decided on not one but TWO previews! Ok, enough babbling for now, I know you are here to see the preview! LOL!

This card actually came about from scraps of another card I made using the same DP! (which will come at a later post). Isnt this dress just the cutest!!? And this so far has been the quickest card I have made out of this stamp set! I wanted the focus to be on the dress so left the embellishments to a minimum. The bottom of the dress and the little cap sleeves were made by using my rectangle nesties, then I positioned them and glued to back of the 'dress' , pierced the scallop edge, tied a little piece of twine around the waist as a belt and TA-DAH! The sentiment is from Rupa Shevde's last month release Retro Boutique.

Card Details:
Stamps: Little Tees by Melanie Muenchinger from Gina K Designs
Papers: All papers, dark chocolate ink and dotted ribbon from PTI
Accessories: rectangle nesties, paper piercing tool and pad, pop dots

Ok, you still with me? LOL! Hope so!

This next card was inspired by my brother-in-laws! They all are into hunting around here, and camouflage! To make the shirt look more 'manly', all I did was trim the length down a bit and slender the 'hip' area out, and cut the ummmm, booby off, lmao! After doing that all you have to do is take your black marker and go around the very edge to have the outline. I made my own camo pattern, just colored with various copic markers here and there. And there's my grass again, can you tell I LOVE my grass!? (grass is from Mel's last month release Cuddles and Hugs) haha! Oh, notice the little brads? They were white, but colored them too with my copic markers!

Card Details:
Stamps: Little Tees and Cuddles and Hugs by Melanie Muenchinger from Gina K Designs
Papers: All cardstock is SU!
Accessories: copic markers, CB die for the tag, hemp twine, brads and eyelets from MMs, vellum, tiny clothespins bought in the wood section at M's, pop dots.

Whew! I am so sorry for being so long winded, but I am so excited about this set and this months releases! You can find lots more sneak peeks on Gina's Blog too! And tonight is the night!!
