Tu-Tu Cute and Summer School

Hello there, friends...
 I'm back today to share a couple of cards for My Favorite Things Summer School Session 2! Yay!
For this lesson, the focus was on the the theory of Gallon/Quart/Pint. Basically, it involves using a tricolor scheme which can make most any card work when applying a main color, a little less of another color, and a smaller dose of a final third color.

I have been wanting to inky up this totally a-do-ra-ble little PI, called Tu Tu Cute *Ü* Lives up to the name, right?! Ok, on to the deets...
In my mind, pink was the gallon, white was the quart, and black was the pint. I colored her with the Copic no-line coloring technique & die-cut her with the coordinating die. Her tu-tu is some Prima ribbon from my stash. *Ü* I added the little paper bow to her hair.

Here's a closer peek:

 Here are the simple innies:

Well, after thinking about it I wasn't sure the rule was totally obvious (WAS there more pink than white???) hmmm...so...I decided to make another, more definitive card. I needed another "Thank You" card so off to crafty work I went!

Here's my second card:
I chose one of my fave color combos (gray, white, yellow.) For this card it goes: Gray-Gallon, White-Quart, Yellow-Pint. I die-cut the fanfare border from Basic Gray cs so that the background wouldn't be so plain. The feathers were die-cut from white glitter paper so they're sparkly! Then I took the scribbles dies & die-cut them out of yellow cs. Last, I white heat embossed the sentiment on Vellum cs.

Here's another peek: hope you can see the sparkle on the feathers.

Here are the innies:

Oh, I almost forgot! I used this week's MFT sketch for my ballerina card.

Thanks so much for twirling with me all the way to the end! *Ü*
Have a wonderful day!
