First Sneak Peek Day Sports Billy!!


Good morning everybody!!!

It's Monday June 8th here in The Netherlands and so it's time for the first sneak peeks of the new Pink Cat Studio set.... Sports Billy. Now I have to admit that I'm not that sporty myself and I always have more trouble creating boys than girls cards but these stamps were SO much fun to work with. I do hope it shows...

Today we are showing you two of the four stamps in the set, Surfing Billy and American Football Billy. I am showing you a card using Surfing Billy but other girls from the team are going to show you the American Football stamp... even though that may be later in the day because of the time differences. Here is my card though:

I'm so satisfied with how this card turned out. Here is a close up:

Now isn't Billy cute riding the waves? The sentiment is from the new stamp set. As always I coloured him with Derwent Watercolour Pencils and Copics and also added a view touches of H2O's here and there. The wave was stamped on design paper and touched up with glitter and paper glaze. The papers and die cuts are all My Minds Eye Breaking Free, I think this paper and the die cuts that come with it are perfect for all these stamps! The eyelits I did with my Crop A Dile and came with it in a box and the pieces of string are actually from labels that came in my husband's new clothes (I always save those little ribbons and pieces of string... never know when they might come to use and the orange string matched the paper PERFECTLY!). As always a whole lot of 3D on the card. Because of the dark shade of the cardstock I used for the cardbase (from stash) I had to do the inside of the card too... little hard to write otherwise:

This card has already made it's way to a very cute boy for his birthday. Hope you like it!
Don't forget to check out the blogs of my fellow Design Team friends, I myself can't wait to see what they did with the first two sneak peek stamps. This month we are also joined by Cindy Bundy. Cindy's blog looks absolutely stunning as do her creations so I'm sure she'll rock these sneak peeks!
I'll be back later today with a project I did for All That Scraps. Don't forget the second day of sneak peeks tomorrow and the stamps will be available for you to buy on Wednesday June 10th!!
See you later (DUDE)!!
