Day 4 of the SugarPea Designs May release sneak peeks!

It's day four and the last day of the sweet sneaks of the new fab SugarPea Designs May release and today we are showing you Pure Magic.  Here is my take on it...





It really is pure magic, isn't it?  I love this guy and he was so fun to colour in too.  I didn't use any designer paper (very unlike me!) and simply used my Nestie star die to embellish it.

I know you want this set!!  And wouldn't it be even better if you won it?!  Well just hop along to each of the designer's posts leaving comments along the way and one lucky person will be randomly selected to win this stamp set!






We will announce the winner of today's stamp set AND the winner of the ENTIRE MAY RELEASE at our online release party on the SugarPea Designs Facebook page this Thursday night between 8:00 and 9:00 PM EST!  Hope you can make it!
Our fabulous May release will be available in the SugarPea Designs Online Shoppe at 9:00 PM EST this Thursday night!

I will be back tomorrow with my La-La Land Crafts guest designer post - ttfn!

Join the Lili of the Valley design team - moi?

Yes, I have some fab news - I've been invited to join the Lili of the Valley design team - woo hoo!  I love their sweet, sweet stamps but haven't really used them much as I have so much else to play with.  But when I was asked to make some samples with my CAS style I enjoyed playing with them so much that I was happy to then be invited to join the very talented team!
 
Today is my debut and we are also holding a Lili of the Valley design team blog hop to celebrate the launch of their gorgeous Pretty Vintage stamps.  Vintage, you say - but I thought I had joined for my CAS style!  Well actually I think I managed to keep to my style and still loved playing with them!  There are 26 new sets and they will be available to buy on the website from midnight (12am) on Wednesday 12th June (UK time) 

The prize is a full set of the Pretty Vintage stamps...
That’s 26 A5 sheets, one each of all the new designs, and it’s worth a massive £325
 
Pretty impressive, huh?!  So, for a chance to win this fabulous prize you need to visit everyone on the hop and leave a comment along the way.
 
 I really did enjoy playing with the stamps, so much so that I not only made one card, but three!  And I have more half made that I'll be able to share with you over the coming weeks!  So you may want to get a cuppa while I show you my makes!  So without further waffle, here is my first make....
 
I am really pleased with how this one turned out.  I used the butterfly and leaf stamp from Grunge Elements, a sentiment from the Pretty Grungy Good Times set and the papers are the LOTV Petal Fresh collection. I used a selection of Versamagic inks to give a softer look and added a bit of texture for interest.
 
For my second card I used a stamp from the Vintage Background Script set (using Versafine Smokey Grey ink), the leaf and corner stamp from the Grunge Swirls set, the butterflies and postage stamp from the Grunge Elements and a sentiment from the Quotables Go For It set.

My last card is probably to more natural CAS style.  I simply used the True Love sentiment from the Statements Congratulations set against some grungy floral, gingham paper and topped on foam pads for depth.
 
I hope you like my first makes for LOTV!  You should have come from sweet Lou and you now need to hop off to the lovely Mindy.  If you need to start from the beginning or get lost along the way, go to the LOTV blog Ideas to InspireDon’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog tomorrow evening when you can find out who the lucky winner is of this fantastic prize

There She Goes sketch time!

Happy Monday!  A new challenge has opened over at There She Goes and this week it's a sketch.  You don't have to use TSG stamps to enter either so I really hope you can play along with us this week for a chance to win TSG gift vouchers!  Here is my DT make...




As you can see, I flipped the sketch and used the very sweet Love Birds set.  I matched it up with My Minds Eye Miss Caroline papers and made a rosette from Pink Pettitcoat striped paper.  I finished it off with a little organza ribbon which I think softens it a little.  I am entering my card into the Simon Says Stamp for Spring.


Check out more inspiration and all the deets over at the There She Goes blog.  I'm off but I'll see you tomorrow with the start of the TSG March release sneak peeks!

Little Miss Muffet new release!

There's a new Little Miss Muffet release of the gorgeous The Isles of Aldmer range.  Here is my DT make using Lightning and Silverstar...



Isn't this image just gorgeous?!  This is such a dreamy romantic couple, I am going to send her to my reently engaged friend who is a bit of a hippie (she describes herself like that!!) - I know she will love this!  If you take a closer look, you can see the rings on their horns...



They were so dreamy to colour in too - for the hair I used mainly Copic C greys, but also a touch of YG93 too.  I matched them up with BasicGrey Origins papers and My Favorite Things Die-Namics Sentiments Strips die, Vine Border, Wonky Scallop border die and Rolled Daisy die. I used this week's Sketch Saturday...errr...sketch!



Okay, that is it from me - you can check out more The Isles of Aldmer gorgossity over on the blog here!

Engagement card

One of my friends has suddenly just got engaged so I had to knock up a card - quick!  She is a city gal with a big lust for diamonds so I just had to use My Favorite Things à la modes It Must Be Love gal...




Isn't she gorgeous?  Both sentiments come with the stamp set.  I matched her up with My Minds Eye Andrea Victoria papers along with the Die-Namics Medium Leafy Flourish die, Die-Namics Rolled Daisy die and Die-namics Mini Tabs Foursome.   Here's a closer look at her where you'll also see I used lots of Glamour Dust on her ring - it really pops off the card!




I also used the sketch again for this month's My Favorite Things Guest Designer sketch challenge.  I just luuurve this sketch!
Well, I hope your week has started off well!  Thanks for visiting and see you tomorrow with the start of the All That Scraps September previews!

Sneak Peek of Pixie Dust Studios' Bunny Tales release!

She's done it again! Kathy, the Pixie Dust Studios illustrator, has created another sweet collection called Bunny Tales - and today we are showing you sneak peeks of it!

Here is my sneak peek using Bunny Tails...




Awww, how sweet is this little couple?!  Instead of an Easter card to a couple, I decide to use it for a romantic card, perhaps an engagement or anniversary (will decide when I use it!).  I matched them up with My Minds Eye Be Loved papers and CC Designs Heart and Scallop Heart dies (in the All That Scraps shop here)

Anything with wings over at Flutter By Wednesday!

A new challenge has opened over at Flutter By Wednesay and this week we want to see....

Anything with Wings!


We normally only allow butterflies, angels or fairies, but just for this week you can use anything as long as it has wings!  So I decided to have some butterflies but use a bird for the main focal point...




I am really getting into my non-stamp cards!  It's scarey not to use an image to work with and it feels little like cheating by not colouring in!  But I am loving stretching my creative skills by using die cuts - and goodness knows I own A LOT of dies that are barely used!  I haven't decided whether to use this for an engagement card or a wedding card - what do you think it is most suitable for - advice please!

I used more yummy papers from Echo Park's Be Mine 12 x 12 collection (from Quixotic Paperie here) and a My Favorite Things sentiment along with a varity of their dies too.

You can see more fluttery gorgossity over at the Flutter By Wednesday blog!

Perfect pear

No, I didn't spell it wrong!  It's my Valentine card to Steve (and, yes, I did make him one earlier but I think he will much prefer this one which is a lot less soppier!) using the freebie Perfect Pear created by Torico...



And can you believe that Torico is giving away this fabulous digi for free?!!  And the sentiment comes with it?!!  Yep, she is that generous!  You can download it here from her Birdie Brown blog here - go get it and leave her some love because she so deserves it for making such gorgeous images!  And you really should check out her Etsy shop - I think I now own about 80% of them, lol!!

I matched these sweeties up with October Afternoon Farm Fresh papers and lickle ickle buttons - that's it!  I'm trying to keep to the CAS style - I think I am getting better at it!

Okay, that is it from me today, thanks for visiting and hope to see you tomorrow with my Flutter By Wednesday DT card!
