First sneak peak day at Pink Cat Studio

Monday January 12, finally, the first day of the Sneak Peak days for the January release at Pink Cat Studio. I have had these stamps now for a couple of weeks and I love them so much and it has been so hard not showing anybody what they look like. I have had a lot of fun making the cards for these Sneak Peak days and now finally I get the chance to show them to you. The first set is called 'Lily & Billy Sweethearts Stamps' and this first day we get to show you this gorgeous stamp with Lily and Billy on a bike. The sentiment I used 'Together Forever' is also in the set and I used black embossing powder.

Don't you love that image? The papers I've used are from the Bo Bunny Sweetie Pie collection which I bought especially for this set of stamps so you'll be seeing this paper back in the next two days. The pins I bought from 'Scrapfever' a Dutch scrapbookstore, you'll find the link on the right and the ribbon is from stash. The cardstock used is Core'Dinations Black Magic. The tule is from Bazzill. I coloured the image as always with my Derwent Watercolour Pencils and my Copic Markers. The white highlights were done with a Uni-Ball Signo pen I received from my dear friend Jeanette (love it honey!!).

The second set is called Kiki Kitty Stamps and future a new little kitty designed by the amazingly talented Melissa. I love Kiki, she is perfect for quick projects and she is just super cute. Today in the sneak peak are no less then three Kiki stamps!! I'm featuring this one with a suitcase and a little cute mouse. I did a wallet for my passport using Kiki with the suitcase. To see sneak peaks of the other stamps in the sneak peak today please visit the mega talented other members of the Pink Cat Studio Design Team (I'm still so proud to be in a team with them!!). Since most don't live in Europe they won't post their cards at the same time I do though, but keep checking back and during the day all of them will post their sneak peaks.

I bought the leather wallet at an Internet Store. The red oval is felt and the oval Kiki was stamped on is foam. Both were cut using my Spellbinder templates. Stamping on foam is just like on paper only you need to let it dry a little longer. Colouring prooft a little more difficult. I didn't like how my Copics reacted on the foam so I just used my Derwent watercolour pencils. The nose of both the mouse and Kiki were done with Liquid Pearls Ruby Red. The little bell on the mouse was done with golden Stickles. If you want to sew on leather you should get a special leather needle, that makes the job a lot easier. I loved doing this project and I hope you like how it turned out.

Please don't forget to check the blogs of my fellow Design Team members, I'm sure they all did an amazing job, can't wait to check them out myself. I'll be back tomorrow with two other projects using these new sets. And don't forget, these gorgeous stamps will be on sale starting next Thursday!!
