TSMONDAY, Best Friend!

Hello, happy Monday! It's time for the Totally Stampalicious Monday challenge, and this weeks challenge is to make a card or project for a Best Friend!

I combined that with 2 of the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges taking place this week at SCS.
DTGD10craftycaro, all that glitters and
DTGD10AmberDawn01, in touch with texture

The image is Cafe Scarlette, she's a Bugaboo image, available now at Totally Stampalicious in clear stamp form! I stamped her onto white and coloured with copics. You can't see in in the pic, but I added black copic atyou spica to her shoes & the top of her handbag, so they have some glitter. I also added a little gem to the handbag. I matted it with a long scallop rectangle nestie.

The squares were made with the 1.25" square punch and the square scallop punch. The shoe and cocktail glass are both EK punches. For the drink, I punch one from acetate and one from vellum. Then I put red stickles inbetween and glued them together with the swizzle stick, also from the cocktail punch. For the handbag, I used a SU punch...I think it's called convex, it's retired. The glittery flap was made with the end of the modern label punch and I added a gem.

I needed the whole sentiment to fit into this same size square, so although this sentiment is included in the set, for this one I printed it on the computer to fit! I unerlined it with black & red gems.

The card base is black, with a layer of real red embossed with a new EF called Kassie's brocade. All the panels are popped up, and I finished it off with black satin ribbon and a button!

Everyone is Welcome to play along in the challenge, even if you don't own any Totally Stampalicious stamps yet! Please upload your creation to Mr. Linky on the Totally Stampalicious Blog!

Since this is a New Totally Stampalicious Stamp, I figured I'd show it now too! This is Morning Margaret, she is a Bugaboo image now available as a clear stamp at Totally Stampalicious.

I made this for the Dare to get dirty sketch challenge DTGD10blondie090277, and the C4C46, to use buttons, well I only used one, I hope that counts!

I coloured Margaret with copics, and added dp as the table cloth. I love this sentiment, I feel like that alot! lol

The card base is kiwi kiss with a layer of textured white and then all the other dp is from the Basic Grey Olivia pad.

I finished it off with a button and some bakers twine and some brads. The image panel is popped up.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
