TAWS Sneak Peek Day 2 - Tootharina

Hi all!  I'm here on sneak peek day 2 and we are showing a NEW set called Tootharina by The Alley Way Stamps!  All of the new sets will be available to purchase at 10PM Mountain Time from the TAWS store.  I colored this sweet image with my Copics, added Stickles to her wings, then fussy cut her.  Now, you can't have a fairy card without stars and glitter!  ;)  I added glitter to her wand and added the same glitter to the stars, which were done by using embossing paste with a stencil.  The little 'sparkle' border on the left side is also an image from this set.  I kept all of the colors soft so that Tootharina was the main focus.  The sentiment, also from the set, was stamped on vellum.

If you hop on over to today's sneak peek post on the The Alley Way Stamps blog, you will be able to see the rest of the team's awesome Tootharina sneak peek cards, plus there is an opportunity to WIN this fantastic stamp set!  Be quick, as the contest is running for today only and will close at 7pm mountain time tonight.

Thanks for stopping by!

TAWS - Love U

Hi all!  Need a quick Valentines/Anniversary/Just because card?  Well here ya go!  The sentiment is from the TAWS Bubbly set.  Seriously love this set because of ALL the possibilities - coloring, paper piecing, and here, I filled in the letters with Stickles.  The heart banners are from the Cake Day set {another awesome must have if you ask me!}.  I colored most of the hearts with Copics and even masked a section of them so they could overlap.  The hearts that I left blank were also filled in with the same Stickles.  I used that cute sheet of dp from the True Friend paper pad to continue the heart theme.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Head over to the TAWS Blog for more inspiration and a coupon code good for January ONLY, so get to shopping!  ;)

YNS Fun Friday - Get a load of this!

Hi all!  Happy Friday!  Time for another Fun Friday post with some fun challenges over on the YNS Blog!  I used both the color and sketch challenges this time to make this cute boyish birthday card.  That adorable truck and the sentiments are from the Keep on Trucking set.  I colored him with Copics, then used the matching dies to cut him out.  I added some extra interest by using the Tiny Stitches - stitched line die on the card base and sides of the larger layer.

Here's a peek at the inside...

TAWS Happy Cake Day

Hi all!  So, um, I kinda made a bright card, lol!  The background words from the Bubbly set were stamped with limelight hybrid ink then embossed.  I then sponged Blu Raspberry and nightshift blue inks over the words for an ombre look.  I then kept the ombre theme going by stamping the sentiment from Cake Day using those same two inks.  See all those gumdrops and enamel dots?  They may or may not be covering my embossing mistakes.  ;)  I used blue sapphire and blue raspberry gumdrops, along with the a couple MME enamel dots.  This card measures 4x4.

Thanks for stopping by!  Check out the TAWS blog for more inspiration!  Our birthday celebration is still going on!!!  You have a chance to win a different stamp set every day!!  YAY!

Sugar Pea Designs Birthday Bash - Let's Fiesta!

Hi all!  I'm SO thrilled to be joining Wendy, her team and a long list of talented designers to help celebrate Sugar Pea Designs 1st Birthday!!!  And what set is more appropriate than SPD's Let's Fiesta!  I cannot tell you how fun this happy dude is to color!  I knew I wanted to use the True Friend paper pad with him, so I colored him with my Copics so that he matched.  How do you like his arm and leg hair (lol, sorry, couldn't resist - you can't have a mustache like that and NOT have arm hair!)?  I also like the subtle woodgrain on his guitar.  ;)  I then fussy cut him and adhered him with foam adhesive.  The sentiment is embossed with clear ep and my tropical teal hybrid ink.  A couple of the YNS pumpkin gumdrops (and a blue one from MME), add the finishing touch!

 And what's a party without prizes?!  One lucky person who comments on ALL of the participating blogs will win this---->

SAY WHAT?!?!  Yes, a $100 Gift Certificate to the Sugar Pea Designs store!  BUT that's not all!  If you play along with us and link up your card on the SPD Blog (to the appropriate post), you could also win a $25 gift certificate!!!  You can also use code BDAY01 and get 10% off your order through 24 January!  Doesn't get any better than that!
