Modern Sugar Blvd. DT Call

What a catchy name! Modern Sugar Blvd is a new store that will be opening on April 20th. On their blog, they have a free digi image of a sassy, modern shopping girl which I used to make the following cards for their Design Team call. I couldn't stop at just one.......

This was the idea I had when I first saw this girl because I knew I had the "perfect" patterned paper to use, and she just had to have "patent leather" boots which was achieved from Diamond Glaze! I also wanted the shopping bags to be the kind you get from upscale stores that have the shiny finish to them, so I colored over the top with a clear glaze pen. You'll notice I used stickles on this one, which, I previously mentioned, I tend to stay away from when using digi images because of the bleeding issue from the printer ink. However, with this particular card, I didn't mind the black feathering into the scarf. Because of the black boots, I wanted to add a bit of black into the scarf, and this actually was a very subltle way to do it. I hand wrote the sentiment.

Here is a close up of the girl so you can see the glaze on the shopping bags and the shiny boots.

After I finished the first card, I just had to make another card using the colors from Modern Sugar Blvd.'s blog and website and this is what I came up with. It reminds me of Spring, and with the snow we had recently, I could use that.

Card Recipe~ all items SU unless indicated

I just realized that I haven't been listing dimensionals in my recipes, but I use these on practically every card I make.

Also, I know I promised pictures of my craft room, but I am still waiting for my shelving unit to come back from the painters, so once it is here, installed and filled up with goodies, I will take those pics.

Hi Jodi: Thanks so much for joining in the Squigglefly blog hop, for posting and for your very sweet comment. I hope you had fun and I hope to see you at my blog again soon!

These cards are awesome. All my favorite colors and I love anything "girly" - especially fashion related (though you'd never know by looking at my blog - LOL). You're a shoo-in - in my opinion! But, I wish you luck with the DT call anyway!
