Second day of Pink Cat Studio Itty Bitty Christmas Sneak Peeks

Hello again!

As promised here I am with two more sneak peeks of the new set. Again, today there are two new images being shown by the team so be sure to check out the blogs of my fellow Design Team members and our two guest designers for this release MacKenzie Bruckler and Tracey Cuccia!

Onto my first card:
I think this is my favorite image of the new set. Here is a close up of it:
You must have some idea by now... coloring was done with Derwent Watercolor pencils and Copics, there were a lot of Stickles used (hope it shows) and I have 3D paperpieced the image using foam cubes. As with my card yesterday I used Twinkling H2O's to create a background color. I believe this color was called Orange Peel. Again, be sure to let me know what you think about the background. I used this weeks sketch from my friends at Sketch Saturday. I wanted to join them as a participant ever since I left the Design Team but because of the lack of cardmaking lately I didn't get around to it earlier. I loved this weeks sketch though and was so glad to be able to use it!! The papers I've used are My Minds Eye Colorful Christmas, the sentiment and the snowflakes are from an accessory sheet from the same paper line. I did use some Stickles on both the snowflakes and the sentiment and I placed some crystals in the centers of the snowflakes. The ribbon is from stash.

On to the next and last sneak peek of this set:
Little Bobby in a Gingerbread man suit (hope that's the right description :S ). The little gingerbread men are from the stamp used above, I cut out the little gingerbread men and adhered them to white circles using foam cubes. Here is a close up:
The coloring is of course done with Derwent Watercolor pencils and Copics, the background was also done using my Derwent's and I have added Stickles for some Christmas sparkle. Paper is again My Minds Eye Colorful Christmas and the sentiment strip on the bottum is from the same accessory sheet the snowflakes and sentiment from the card above are from. The flower was punched out using two different sizes of EK Success Retro flower punches and the center is a pearl brad which I also used on the right bottom of the card. Finally a little piece of chain and a lovely charm I believe I bought from my friend Nikki from Bunny Zoe's Crafts.

Well that was it for me as far as the sneak peeks for this release go. I hope you liked my sneak peels and don't forget you can get these lovely rubber stamps yourself tomorrow but I'll be back tomorrow with a picture of the complete set of stamps to remind you :). Don't forget to visit my lovely Design Team buddies, I'm sure they'll blow you away with their gorgeous creations again.

See you back soon (I promiss ;) ). Take care!
