Day Three of Sneaks!

Are y'all loving these? I "shore" do. HAHA. I slay me. heh

Anyway, along with the Beachies set from the upcoming relase at All That Scraps that was previewed yesterday, there is a little scenery set to go along with it. I find I most always look at a card and think it needs "something" but sometimes I just don't have anything that makes sense. These little scenery and accessories sets really help me out! I used little Trevor for this card because he is so ding-dang cute with his old fashioned swim suit! Looove!

What I used: SU CS, Creative Imaginations PP, Cuttlebug, Spellbinders dies, Memento ink, Copic markers, CM wavy cutter.

Go on over to the ATS blog where you can see other examples. And don't forget to click on the other DT girls' links to see what FABULOUS (seriously, y'all...I'm in awe of their talent) creations they have made with this set. Enter on the blog for your chance to win the scenery set, too!

Day 2 of sneak peeks!

Y'all...didn't I tell you I'm in love with this month's stamps? Aren't these ADORABLE? Christine at All That Scraps outdoes herself each and every month.

These are the new Sugarplums Beachies...they've gone in for a little facelift which I loooove! Cute as a bug's ear!

What I used: Sugarplums Beachies, SU CS, Summertime Fun sentiment, glossy accents on her board...c'mon, you knew I was gonna "wax" up her board to be all shiny and fancy! :D Plastic flowers, a brad, EK Success edge punch, twill ribbon, grosgrain ribbon, pearl half backs, and the pattern paper is...well I can't remember. I bought it at my LSS and I don't remember seeing a name on it. :D

Don't forget to stop by the ATS blog to see what the other girls have done! You could win your own set!

Thanks for coming by today...hope you have a great day!

Day 1 of sneaks!

My favorite, favorite time is when I get to provide sneaks for what Diane, Amy and Christine are coming up with for the month's new rubber stamps!

And, of course, Diane is bringing us another winner this month! This ah-ha-dorable new cow set called Milly from her Cookie Crumbs stamp line over at All That Scraps. I just think this set is the cutest!

I used the milk can from the set to put some background on the blue part behind the image for a little extra fun. And that sentiment? Cracks me up! I swear! My up is ALL cracked! hehe

What I used: Tilly from Cookie Crumbs at All That Scraps, Memento ink, Copic markers, black pen (for the faux stitching), SU! CS, American Crafts pattern paper (TRIPLE EXTRA LOVE TIMES A BILLION plus INFINITY), SU! ribbon, SU felt flowers, Cuttlebug, Spellbinders dies and a brad.

I also used the cupcake from the Gingersnaps Celebrate set and Amy R's sentiment from her Birthday Sentiments set. How y'all like THAT? 3 different sets on one card! haha!

Inky Impressions...

Have y'all seen these upcoming new stamps from Inky Impressions? I just love them! Those big eyes really draw me to these gals.

Anyway, as y'all might recall, I made it to the second installment of the Inky Impressions DT call. With that, Nicole sent each of us a couple of the images along with a sketch that we had to follow for the second round. And this is mine!

I dunno if y'all can see, but she has wee fingernails and toenails that I can COLOR! WoooHoo! I love that!!!

What I used: Inky Impressions image, Copic markers, SU! CS, Making Memories pattern paper, blingy little rhinestone flower, Cuttlebug, Spellbinders dies and a white gel pen.

Thanks for stopping in today! I have a bunch more that I've been working on since I've been gone. Hope y'all didn't miss me too much. hehe

XOXO later!

Gone Fishin'!

Me? I don't fish. Too barbaric. But this little Edwin fishing is awfully cute. :) I love these little guys with the scenes all built in....so much fun to color! And y'all KNOW I love coloring. I have been using my pencils more lately. Not because I've fallen out of love with my Copics but instead because I don't want to forget how to color with my pencils (plus, uhm, they're kinda too spendy to let them sit on the shelf unused. LOL!)

What I used: SU CS, forget who made that PP, colored pencils and OMS, stickles, chalk, twill ribbon.

Pretty straight forward, yo. hehe

Happy Trails to you............

hahaha! Okay, so I know...this card is a bit odd. :D But c'mon...snail....trail...Anyway....today's DT Challenge at All That Scraps is to use microbeads. I was all....ooh...microbeads?! I dunno if I have any! But, I did and so I was thinking and thinking on what in the world would I do with microbeads?! Well, I guess I sorted it out. hehe

What I used: Cookie Crumbs-Lady Bug Friends from All That Scraps, Memento inks, colored pencils and OMS, microbeads and sticky glue stuff, Cuttlebug, Spellbinders dies, EK Success punch, white gel pen, CHF background stamp, SU! CS, Imaginesce PP, Prima flowers, Doodlebug brad and a bead spacer. I printed the sentiment out on my computer and cut it out with my word window punch from Stampin' Up.

So that is all I have to share for now...thanks for stopping in to see my snail trail. hehe

Don't forget to swing by the ATS blog to see what the other ladies have done with their microbeads!

Hope you have a great day!

(Also, sorry for the cruddy picture quality. My hubby has the 20 mile long lens on the camera and I don't know how to change it so I had to stand 50 miles away to take the picture...LOL)
