Sneak Peek day 1 for Lily at the Beach Stamps

Good morning everybody!!

Today is the first day of the sneak peeks of the new Lily at the Beach stamps that will be released next Thursday the 23rd at Pink Cat Studio. I know it is still spring but the weather here has been lovely for the most part the last weeks so I have been really in the mood for these lovely stamps. It was a pleasure to work with them and I really like them, I'm sure you will do too. So let's get started with the sneak peeks!!

My first card uses a stamp with Lily riding this cute little turtle. I was in love with this stamp the second I saw Melissa's sketch of this one and it was the first one I inked up when the stamps arrived. Here is the result:

Now isn't she adorable!!! The lovely sentiment is also included in the set. Here is a close up of the image:

I used a lot of 3D on this one again. The sand and water paper I have had for ages and I finally got a chance to use them. The water paper is Sandylion's and the sand paper is from Carol Wilson but both papers are at least four years old. The shape around the image was made using my new Label One nesties and the green cardstock, blue Bo Bunny DP paper and some of the embellies are from the last Card-Art kit, the other embellies are from stash and the pink paper is Doodlebug Velvet. The stitching has been done with metallic embroidery silk.

On to my second card for this sneak peek day:

Isn't she cute again!! Again the sentiment is included in the set. A close up of this little cutie:

Now this Lily is actually standing holding the tube on the stamp as you will probably see on the cards of the other DT members but I wanted to put her into the water so I have added some water with foamcubes on her legs and under the tube to actually splash around :). Again lots of 3D on this one but I'm not sure if the picture shows this. Both of the nestie shapes have been mounted with 3D cubes too. The cardstock is from stash and the cream cardstock has been embossed with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. The strip of DT paper is from Daisy bucket. The ribbon is from a Card-Art kit and I think that suits the beachy look very well. The shells were found by my daughter Dyanne :). The adhesive stones are from Make Me and I've embroidered with some ecru embroidery silk.

That's it for me today!! I sure hope you like my cards but if you don't... don't forget there are nine more Design Team members who I'm sure will blow you away with their sneak peeks, you can find their links on the right side. And if that is not enough.. this month we are being joined by our Guest Designer Tori Wild and I have just been over to Tori's blog and she has some absolutely stunning creations there so I can't wait to see what she has done with these two cuties. Have a lovely blog hop everybody! I'll be back tomorrow with another sneak peek.

Have a great day!!
