I want to start by thanking all of you who left a comment on the announcement of my pregnancy! Thank you all so much for you lovely remarks and wishes!!!
Now, as promised, let me show you all the first sneak peeks of the Itty Bitty rubber Christmas stamps. There are a total of six images in this set and I think you are going to love them, I do and I loved working with them... hope it shows :). The team is showing three of the six images today and two of those you'll find on my blog. For the other image (and of course other examples with the same images I've used) be sure to visit my very talented fellow Design Team members and our two very talented guest designers for this release MacKenzie Bruckler and Tracey Cuccia. Both MacKenzie and Tracey have recently made it to the Pink Cat Studio Digi Design Team so you know they'll be bringing some good stuff!
Let's get on with the first card:
I decided to get one of my Christmas decorations out of the box to give the pictures a Christmas mood. Don't you love this image? I think the Itty Bitties look so cute on their little reindeer friend. Here is a close up of the image:
As always coloring was done with my Derwent watercolor pencils and Copics, I used different Stickles, a bit of Paper Glaze on the nose of the reindeer and 3D paperpieced the image with foam cubes. The background was done using Twinklink H2O's. I'm pretty new to Twinkling H2O's and I'm not sure how I feel about this background so be sure to give me your honest opinion. The papers are Bo Bunny Tis the season. Cardstock and ribbon are from stash and the poinsettia flowers are from Irene's Garden.
Now for the next card:
And for a better view of the card:
Isn't she sweet? Little Betty dressed up as a Christmas tree. The sentiment is also included in the new set. Again a close up of the image:
I used my pencils and Copics again, Stickles, Ruby Red Liquid Pearls for the balls in the tree, Paper Glaze on the star on top and I 3D paperpieced the image again with foam cubes. The paper, ribbon, cardstock and the brads are from a previous Card-Art kit. The large poinsettia flower is from Imaginisce (as is the paper that was in the Card-Art kit mentioned) and the small flower is the same as I used in the card above, from Irene's garden. I used some chalk and some Sakura Gelly Roll pen for the background and I have tried to keep the card simple to give the lovely image some focus.
Well hope you like both my cards and that you'll be back tomorrow for two more sneak peeks. Don't forget to visit the other lovely ladies of the Pink Cat Studio Design Team (links can be found on the right) and our two guest designers for this release MacKenzie Bruckler and Tracey Cuccia!
I just noticed that Melissa is also having a contest on the Pink Cat Studio blog. Guess the number of reindeer in the square on the blog and you may just win the new release! Good luck everybody!!!
