Megan and A Fond Farewell to CK

Hi friends!  Happy Thursday. It has been really HOT down here in H Town these last few weeks ever since the rains have stopped. Everyone asked us to send them some and we did and now we don't have any left over for us. LOL!

Well, it is a day to say goodbye too. This is my last post as part of the Creative Knockouts Design Team. It's been a fun time working with all the ladies on the Teams and especially our leader Kelly. I learned a lot - especially to get out of my comfort zone and try different things. I hope I can continue to do that.

Our theme for this challenge is Paper Piecing, and I was so happy to get to do this one before I left. I recently bought some Julie Nutting Paper Doll stamps and couldn't wait to use one of them for my card. I chose to use Megan. Some people don't like them because they are big! But they are just right to use on a long card that will fit into a #10 business size envelope.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Julie Nutting - Megan
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - 
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up Whisper White, Ultrasmooth Vanilla, and Really Rust
  • Designer Paper - Stampin Up - Fall Flowers
  • Ink - Really Rust; Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Accessories - Ribbon from my stash; String Bow Die; Small Lace Doily Die; Stampin Up Scallop Round punch; 
  • Copic Markers - E31, E51, E53; E15, E17, E18; E37; Y15, Y23
I have to tell you that I stamped Megan with Memento Ink onto a piece of Stampin up Ultrasmooth Vanilla and then used Copic Markers on her skin, hair and boots and had no problems at all with using the Stampin Up cardstock with my Copic Markers.The USV was great to work with and gave her a good base of color for her skin

The Sponsor for this challenge is Craft Classes Online and the winner of the prize will get a seat in one of their online classes worth up to $25!  Fabulous!  I hope you'll all come and join me this one last time as I say goodbye to Creative Knockouts and please hop on over to the challenge blog and see what they have prepared for you!

  2. Fabulous card Maggie, love her dress!! I wish you well in the craft world and thank you for everything!


  3. She's really fabulous on the tall card with the paper piecing! Love the colors and card design the way you broke up the background with the two papers and then accented with the two die cuts. Very nice! Try to stay cool, and maybe enjoy a little extra free time.

  4. Maggie, your paper piecing is wonderful! This is a great image, and the size like you said is great. We don't have to make same size cards all the time! Hugs!

  5. I used to make the longer cards on occasion, have not made one for a while...I love your card- I have resisted these stamps but sure do like seeing cards made with them. Her top and skirt are fun paper pieced.
