Todays post I have 2 things to share. One is a card using Shower Time byMFT Stamps. This set is due out for release September 1st. Its really cute.

Kim is also releasing the clear paint cans, ready to be altered, which you get a super cool “bundle” of things, which includes her favorite 48 Prismacolor pencils, Pebbles click eraser, sanding block, and of course a selection of blending stumps-all for only $75.

She is having a SPECIAL this month where each purchase of this bundle, will include the SHOWER TIME set FREE!!!!!!!!!!!  LOOKIE——–> HERE How cool!

If you are unsure if the Prismacolor pencils “match up” to the Crayola and Rose Art-well Gina K tested them! You can find that ——->HERE at Craft Critique.

So lets start with the paint can.

Fairy Tin Fairy Wishes for you.

I love the Princess Birthday set. This was the immediate set I thought of for creating a tin. Perfect ofr a little girl! The sentiment is from Bundles of Bouquet’s.

How cute is this to put a gift in (or store your Prismacolor pencils)?

I stamped the Fairy then used my coluzzel to cut around her. I LOVE images going outside the box., or um, oval! LOL! I just placed some Lily Kate Basic Grey cardstock in the can. I also used it for the lid, and her dress. The lid is a branch pattern, that I applied stickles to the flower centers. LOVE to paper piece too! See her dress! She was colored and stickles (strawberry) were added to the wings.

Ribbon is from Stampin Up! And Martha Stewart. The star is a bling sticker by A Muse.

Someone asked me yesterday where I buy my bling stickers. I get ALOT of them from the Michaels dollar bin! Others I get from online stores like eP. I also as said above use A Muse ones-but they are TINY so not as often as the others. Even Target sells them. BUY alot! I buy them constantly and its one of my most used products. LOVE THEM! Martha Stewart carries them as well-but in honesty they are little pricey.

Now onto my card.

Since I figured you will see ALOT using the MAIN image of the set (girl holding umbrella-GENIUS idea KIM!) I figured I’d do one with the little images. I love using smaller images to create a card.

This on was VERY simple.

shower flowers Shower of Flowers

I just aligned the flowers on my clear block (how nice is it that I can SEE what I’m doing!), and used my makers to color them. Stamped in a row-and 4 minutes later this entire card was D-O-N-E!

I intentionally left it blank. Im really bad about sending cards, so wanted to keep one ON HAND for any occasion.

The flowers are punched vellum cardstock using one of my many Martha Stewart punches. I then used some colorbox chalk ink, to brush the edges. Stampin Up Spring Bouquet punch is the smaller flower in the center. BLING always completes the project 😀

The ribbon is by American Crafts. I got it at Michaels. They sold it in a bigger single roll! WAHOOOO!

The colors are cameo (or guava?? so similar I can barely tell anymore) and Chocolate Chip.

Thanks for looking.

More here tomorrow!
