Meet our Guest Designer Tina

Hi everyone!! I'm so honored to be Guest Designing for Sherri Baldys My Besties today!!  Sherri's images won my heart from the very start.  They are just the cutest and so much fun to work with!!!  Today I got to play with "Bookworm" and I decided to make her for a sweet friend who I met SORT of through a book... a Filofax planner.  Does that count? LOL  I decided to go with an easel card layout.

I colored this cute Bestie with Copics and a ShinHan Touch Twin Brush marker.  Though it's a bit hard to see, I added some Crystal Lacquer to the glasses to make them shine!  I added some Tim Holtz Distressed Ink, "Antique Linen" around the edges before mounting her onto my card.  

The papers I used were Teresa Collins, "Memories" which I couldn't resist using a "calendar" print for my background. ;-)  

 For my sentiment, I simply used a definition stamp and added it to the inside of my card raised up a bit with Pop Dots so as to hold the top of the card at an easel angle.

A few paper roses from Prima and a couple Marianne's Dies accent my card.  I added just a few self-adhesive pearls to the top for a bit more balance.

I am so happy to be designing for Sherri... she's not only SUPER talented, but as sweet as her images!!!  I'm sure you'll see many more of my designs using My Besties.  I mean, truly, can YOU resist them??? *wink* 

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!! *HUGS*

Brand New Besties up for adoption and precolored Decoupage Besties

Good morning Besties

Some new Besties have been born in Sherri's art studio.  They don't yet have names, but if you would like to
participate and give them a name, be sure to go to Sherri Baldy Stamps facebook page and help name them.

There is also a collection of Decoupage Besties that come precolored.  Just cut them out with your scissors, and layer them on your card to add great dimension.  These projects take only minutes to create a fantastic card.
