Now speaking of the iPad 2, it was the hot topic between Colleen, myself and another friend Jenny last week, specifically...how and and when are we going to get our grubby hands on it? Are you gonna get up at 4am and order online, or God forbid, stand in line somewhere! Well, Colleen and Jenny got up at 4 and placed their order...clearly I did not want it that bad because when the hubs tried to wake me up TWICE, I just snored in his face and didn't order mine until 6am. Now Colleen wanted it SO badly that she placed her order as a back up then went and stood in line and was the proud owner of her iPad 2 by 5:30pm! Way to go! Hopefully when she cancelled her order, that bumped mine up in line and I'll have it within the next couple weeks.
Alrighty, life update is over and I'll move on to something crafty. This is hollyhock BITTYBLOOM from Stamping Bella, and isn't she a cutie! I'm totally smitten with those bittyblooms.
I paired her up with Basic Grey Kokeshi paper, stamped her on bella's BESTEST paper and used the following copic markers to colour her up:
E000, 00, 11, 33, 35, C1, 3
BG0000, 000, B000, 00
G0000, 000, G40, 21, V12, 15, 17
On to the how'd she do that portion of today's post. I actually have a little bit of a tutorial for you today! shocker I know! But I had a couple questions on how to pop that balloon out of the nestie so Kathy H., this is for you!
|Step 1: place your nestie over the image and draw a line with pencil on the inside edge of the die|
|Step 3: place your nestie back on the image and pull out the portion that you don't want cut.|
Linda - I must confess that I am "that" gal who didn't know how to trim the balloon before using the oval die (or any die). Thank you for the well written tutorial and painstaking photos. I really enjoyed this post and appreciate the time you took to create it.
I didn't know how to do that either so I thank you too. Love your card!
That is NOT the way I do it. Actually I never knew about this way and so I simply cut the image out and then would cut out another full balloon and place it over the cut one so it would look whole. I like your result better. Thanks for sharing with us.
Wow, what an informative post. I got the IPad 1 at Christmas and love it. I see All Recipes, where I'm signed up and have a recipe box is now an App. Will download that. I have a Nook and couldn't get it downloaded to the IPad. After talking to the US people, we learned Nook doesn't have Cdn rights yet, but is in the works. I only get books on my Nook because I put in my US postal address.
Your card is adorable. Your image works beautifully with your DP.
Well, your card is sooo sweet, as always.
I'm totally stoked to be on the team with you girls, and I can't believe I wasn't a follower on your blog already, but I am now!
Nice job as always the colors are fab as well as the coloring..any word on your iPad ..thks for sharing
