You Go Girl!

Howdy all! I have to say this THRILLED I am to be Melanie's Guest Designer for the next 4 weeks! I have been a fan of Mel's since her first stamp set came out with Gina K Designs. I could go on and on about her stamps, her creativity that I admire so much, her willingness to help and give such wonderful ideas to all...but I'll stop there, I know you here to see the card with those cute Little Tees! (I'll stop before I sound like her stalker and scare her away, haha!)

I made this card for a girlfriend of mine who just recently got a promotion. I am so thrilled for her! I took one of the Tees, the solid one and stamped it in pink and embossed the butterfly on it. Then I took the Tee that has the long sleeves and paper pieced it took look like wool (I hope anyways, lol), also did another plain Tee for the 'skirt' part. Cut the paper pieced one down the middle, with a bit of the middle section cut out, the bottom of the sleeves trimmed a bit to make it look like a jacket! How fun is that?! I took the other paper pieced solid and just cut off the top part and positioned it to look like a skirt under it all. Now I have a wool skirt suit! (Since her promotion, she has to dress up a bit and thought this was fitting). It really wasnt hard at all to do this! This set just has sooo many possibilites, you will definitely feel like a fashion designer!

Card Details:
Stamps: Little Tees by Melanie Muenchinger from Gina K Designs, Just-Rite Stamper C-45 box set from Flourishes
Papers: All SU! cardstock
Accessories: ribbon, black brads, flower brad (painted with black sharpie) and little pearls in corner all from Michaels and by MM's, scor-pal, circle nesties, pop dots

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you enjoyed this first post for my guest designer position! Be sure and come back over the next 3 weeks on Thursday each time with more of this wonderful set, LITTLE TEES!
