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.|
