First day of Pink Cat Studio Fairy Friends sneak peeks!!!

Hi everybody!!

Finally I get to show you the first peeks of the gorgeous new Fairy Friends Melissa has created for Pink Cat Studio's. I have had these cute little ones for a couple of weeks now and they are SO much fun to work with and so adorable, it was instant love for me and I can't imagine anybody NOT loving them. But pictures say more than words so... let me show you my first card: Now I have to tell you that though I love ALL the Fairy Friends, this cute little bunny is my absolute favorite. She is SO adorable, that's why I asked Melissa to make me a watermark with the image and she very kindly did so... DON'T YOU LOVE IT!!!! Thank you again sweetie!! I have so wanted to place it on any project I have done since Melissa made it for me but I had to wait till the sneak peeks of course. Here is a close up of the cute little bunny:
Can you see the stickles? The wings have had a layer of Paper Glaze after I 'painted' them with a glimmering Sakura Gelly Roll pen so they are sparkly and shiny. I did 3D paperpiecing again and some of the layers of paper are also on foamcubes so there is a lot of dimension in this one.

The gorgeous red roses I bought from my friend Helma at Stamping Corner, she has a whole lot of gorgeous colours. The white rose is from my friend Nikki Hope at Bunny Zoe's Crafts. The leafs are from my new Pine Punch by McGill's. The design papers are Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday. I hope you like :).

My second sneak peek is not only a sneak peek of the cute little cat that's in the set but also of a larger project I have done that I am going to show you with a tutorial on Thursday, the day of the actual release. This project was so much fun to do and I hope you like it too. Here is the sneak peek:

Isn't this cat cute as a button! Again a lot of stickles and I did the same to the wings as I did with the bunny. I don't know if you can see it on this picture (you can click on it to get a larger view) but behind the cat fairy is a glittery trail of sparkles. The stamp is also included in the set and I stamped it with my Top Boss Clear embossing pad, sprinkled it with Stamp 'n Bond, heated that and sprinkled glitter on it. I don't think the glitter shows well on the picture but I love the glittery trail.

What I can tell you at this point is that the cat is on a little box that is basically the box I did HERE. I got a whole lot of questions about the box after that post. I have since (by coincidence) had the pleasure of getting to know Moon Hulsman the very talented cardmaker who did the box for Cards Only (a Dutch cardmaking magazine) and asked her if it was OK if I used a slightly altered version of the box for a larger project with a tutorial of that project and the box on my blog and she told me that that was no problem at all. So next Thursday I'll give you the details on the blog I made for this project with a big thank you to my new friend Moon :).

That's it for now! I'll be back tomorrow with two more sneak peeks of the larger project and with that of two more of the Fairy Friends. Don't forget to check out the blogs of my fellow Pink Cat Studio Design Team members. They'll be posting their sneak peeks during the day too and there is one more Fairy Friend that gets his moment of Glory today so be sure to use the links on the right of my blog. You also want to check out the blogs of TWO guest designers that will be joining us this month, a very big welcome to Tina Hale and Kim Rhead! I've already had the pleasure of checking out both your blogs and seeing the gorgeous work that's on there I'm sure you'll both rock the sneak peeks! Have fun girls!!

See you back tomorrow?
