Pink Cat Studio Sneak Peeks Day 1

Hello everybody!!

Finally the first day of the Sweet Pea Sneak Peeks is here!!! Today we all get to show you two cards with the first set that will be released next Thursday, March 26th, the Dress Up Sweet Pea stamps!! After the Lily and Billy Dress Up kits now there is going to be the cutest little baby to dress up. You can make Sweet Pea into a boy or a girl and he or she has got a bunch of gorgeous accessoiries to dress up and play with. Each of the (Guest)Design Team members have picked a couple of different accessoiries so if you blog hop the different Design Team blogs you'll see all (or at least most of) the cute stamps the kit contains (I myself can't wait to see what my Design Team friends have created).

Now onto my first card:

And when you open the card I wanted to show that you can use the stamps for more than just baby cards. This card would be perfect for a little boy's first birthday. On the box (where I've masked off the 'Special Delivery' sign that's normally on there could be any text from just the number 1 to Happy Birthday. The possibilities are endless. The Surprise letters were cut with a Coluzzle template and it is actually chipboard with Design Paper on top. I wanted to use chipboard because I thought that would go well with the cardboard box the baby is sitting in when you open the card. Here is a close up of the cute little Sweet Pie:

The box, the balloons the baby and the little party hat are all in the set.

Onto my second card:And a close up of the baby:
Isn't she lovely? The big flower hat, the dress, the t-shirt underneath the dress and the rattle are all in the set. The sentiment is actually from the second set that will be shown in the sneak peeks tomorrow so you've actually got an even sneaker sneak peek there :). I've stamped the sentiment on ribbon. Just like with the baby in the first card I've layered the baby to give it a bit of a 3D effect. The card is very small and would be perfect to give with a gift or something but would of course also be very cute to send in the mail. I've used my cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to give the pink cardstock some texture and I've cut the white cardstock and the Design Paper with my Nesties.

Hope you like these. I'll be back tomorrow with two sneak peek cards with the second set that will be released on Thursday. This month we are joined by our Guest Designer Sparkle Smith (I love your name Sparkle!!). I've checked out her blog and she displays some absolutely stunning cards on there so I can't wait to see what she comes up with for this release. And while you are hopping, don't forget to check out the blogs of the other Design Team members (links to their blogs are on the right). Have fun hopping!!
