MFT Blog Hop: How much is that ice cream in the window?

...looks like she hasn't had any dessert in awhile! (sigh..just jealous!)

Welcome to the My Favorite Things Blog hop! Two wonderful new sets are being released RIGHT NOW: BC DZYNs Text Ya Later and What a Girl Wants! To help kick off the release, the MFT design team has created some fun cards and projects with the sets. If you would like to start at the beginning, just backtrack to Kim's blog and follow the links to see all the fabulous creations the team has to share.

This card features What a Girl Wants by new illustrator, Amanda Baird! It is such a cute set--the possibilities for that store front window are endless.
I thought it would be fun to show this set coupled with another MFT set (or two). The ice cream cone is from Here's the Scoop and the sentiment is from Twisted Sentiments.

I stamped the scene twice on white cardstock. I paper pieced the bags (which are also in the set) and the storefront. I also pieced the ice cream cone (and just added shading!)

I colored the lady with Copics and colored the second image and popped up parts of her for some dimension. TIP: In order to add dimension to people or animals, pop up the mid section of their body but make sure to adhere the arms directly onto the base image. This way they do not appear to have two sets of limbs!

I added liquid pearls to her necklace and earring and platinum stickles to her crown.

Here are a few other new products at MFT:

Wanna keep hoppin? Head on over to my sweet and talented friend Cindy to continue this blog hop! I know you are gonna love what she created!

Thanks for stopping by!
