Sneak Peak - Day 1

Yeah it is the first day of  sneak peaks for what is coming in February!! I have had so much fun creating for these previews :)......so let's start off with "Pixie Lucy". Oh I have something exciting to give away after these three preview days are done....three stamps to someone who leaves me some love during this time. The three stamps are Pixie Lucy (this cutie), Woodland Mushroom (great for a cutie to sit on) and the awesome Woodland Logo set (used one from this set on the inside of this card). So leave a comment and a way to contact you and you might win!!

I think she is just too cute!! I have perched her on top of the Swiss Field Fence and surrounded her with butterflies that I cut with C.C. Butterflies and a variety of flowers and some Kaiser pearls. The sentiment which is perfect for this is from a new set from Amy R called Be Happy Sentiments and will also be available with new February products at All That Scraps- love the size of these stamps and so many great sayings for cards!!The paper I used is from We R Memory Keepers, "Love Struck" (which is in stock at ATS) . The border is cut with a Martha Stewart punch.

A peak at the inside....

 I used one of the new stamps from the  Woodland Logo set - these are great additions for the cards!!

Today is "review day" at All That Scraps Blog, a chance to show you some fun ideas with the great stamps that came out in January... so be sure to stop by the blog and see all the fun eye candy that the DT members have to show you today!! I chose to use Sweet November Fairwee - Josie's Cupcake, I think she is so cute and you can do so many different things to decorate the cupcake she is perched on. I chose to add Stickles to the icing to give it some bling and only lightly colored it with copics. The sentiment on the tag (cut from MFT Fishtail banner die) is from the Beach Sentiment set by Amy R at All That Scraps. I also used the Scallop Ribbon die from MFT and the the Sweet Stack die from MFT too. The paper is the Echo Park - Yours Truly line and there are some in stock at ATS!! For the inside of my card I used two stamps from ATS, the Party Logos and Birthday Sentiments - love having good sentiment stamps to use on my cards!!  Some bling and some ribbon were added to make it fun!! This card was a more simple design....but I can hardly wait for the January 31st to start showing you the previews for the February release .......so FUN!!!!

Hair - C1, 3, 5, 7
Skin - E50, 51. 53

Wednesday Challenge at All That Scraps - "Blue, Brown and Tan"

You all know that some times there are cards that you make that you are a bit extra pleased with..... can I share with you that this is one of those for me? Now don't get me wrong I do like making "cutesy" cards but I also like cards with some distressing and a bit of shabby chic to them .. this is one of those for the great color challenge from Lesa at All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge. Hey ... come on over and play with us so we can see your creative beauties!! (also be sure to check to see what the other girls have made on the blog too!!)
For this card I used Sweet November Tess - she is so adorable!! The papers I used are from MME - Paris & Co line and also some Prima that I had from the Madeline collection.... remember I am working hard to use up paper pads that I have before all the new ones come out!! The flourish is the mini flourish die from Tim Holtz and the little "dream" tag is his too. The flowers are Prima and sprayed with Suede Glimmer Mist. On the inside of the card the sentiment is from MFT called Clearly Sentimental about Friendship.
And of course ....my copic markers were used and here are the colors:
Hair - YR30, 31, Y21 and E33
Skin - E50, 51, 21 and RV32
Coat - B52, 12, 02

Daphne's Balloon - C. C. Design Review Day

Here is another card with the Sweet November Fairwee - Daphne's Balloon from C.C. Designs. This time I decided to paper piece the balloons and then color the rest of the image with copic markers. I have been determined to use up paper pads that I have ....so this card I used more papers from the MME, Lime Twist, Happy Go Lucky line. (I figure if I use up some then I can justify buying more when CHA is done and all the new products come in to All That Scraps.) I love using dies to cut things to add to my cards and on this one I used four different ones from MFT, Christine carries many of the MFT dies at All That Scraps - look under the stamps she carries from MFT. The ones I used are, Open Scallop Edge, Flower Trio, Flat Bottom Clouds and Vintage Flourish. (If you can't find them at All That Scraps check the MFT store) The sentiment on the outside is from Birthday sentiments by C.C. Designs and the inside is from the new Party Logo set. I hope you like this and get some ideas for your own wonderful cards!!!
Copic markers used:
Skin - E50, 51, 21
Hair - E30, 31, 33
Dress - RV63, 66
Background - BG0000

A little "Sweet November" goodness in January...

And here is the inside of the card too.
Just a little card to show again one of the new stamsp from C.C. Designs this month. This cutie is one of the Sweet November Fairwee's called Daphne's Balloon. I teamed her up with some older paper from MME's Lime Twist line, Happy Go Lucky. ( I love their 6x6 pads). The sentiment is from C.C. Designs called Spring Sentiments. Love being able to add little sayings to my cards :) I used a couple of dies, for the flowers one from MFT, Flower Trio, Simple Scallop Medium border  and the leaves are C.C. Cutters, Leaves (sold out but will be back). The crystals, which I love are from Prima - perfect color for this paper!! On the inside I just stamped the balloons to carry the theme to the inside of card.
Copic colors used were:  dress - G20, YG93, face - E50, 51, 21. R22 (cheek), balloon - BG10, 11, 32, balloon - RV32, 34, hair - E21, 23, 25, backround - BG0000 colored softly for cloud effect.
Hope you enjoyed the card - love to hear from you!!
