Here’s what’s in this month’s collection:

Pure Innocence Prehistoric Girl stamp set
Pure Innocence Owl Costume stamp set
Costumed Cuties Sentiments mini (VIP exclusive stamp set - will never be offered for sale or be available again $9 value, FREE)
Peek-a-Boo Trio Die-namics


I have a card using each of the sets for you tonight, first up, PI-Prehistoric Girl. I decided to create a little scene with her—actually, I couldn’t resist it.

First, I stamped her on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 130lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic markers, paper piecing her “dress”. Then I fussy cut her out and popped her into the scene. I’m using Die-namics Cloud Trio, Die-namics Fresh Cut Grass for the obvious reasons, but I’m using some other Die-namics in out-of-the-box fashion. The light brown “earth” right behind her was done with Natural card stock and Die-namics Wonky Scallop Border. I think it gives the illusion of not-too-distant grassless low hills. The taller green hills in the background were done with Die-namics Jumbo Cloud STAX. Love the versatility of Die-namics dies!! The sentiment is from the mini set included in the VIP Collection and was stamped on a Die-namics Traditional Tags STAX and added to a twine-tied Tangy Orange button. I’m also using Jellybean Green card stock, Sour Apple card stock, Tangy Orange card stock, and Sweet Tooth card stock.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the mini set:

And here’s my second card, using PI – Owl Costume. I’m using this month’s Guest Designer Sketch for this card. You can get all the details about *that* at the Guest Designer thread at the MFT Member Forum at SCS.

OK, then. I stamped this little sweetie on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 130lb paper and colored her with Copic markers. Then I matter her with Black Licorice card stock and stamped the sentiment, also from the mini set, on a Die-namics Mini Tab Foursome die cut and attached it to the main image panel. I did some stitching, added some Black Licorice grosgrain ribbon, and popped the image up on foam tape. Then I added a big ol’ Sour Apple button tied with some Charcoal baker’s twine.

Here’s the inside with a sentiment from PI – Owl Costume.
