Countdown to the Create a Smile June Release!

hi there!
exciting things are happening in the Create a Smile world! it's currently release week, and not only will there be 2 new stamp sets (some of the best ones yet!!), there will also be DIES!!!! yeah! we're all pretty excited about that!

I have two cards on the Create a Smile blog showcasing one of the new sets called Uplifting! i LOVE that set!

my first card is all boy!

i love it!
i started by blending two yellow Distress Inks (Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade) and then flicked some water on top!

the images were colored with copics and then popped up! i framed the scene with some stitching and the used some layered patterned papers! love the blue and yellow together! oh yeah, i added some glossy accents to that fun window, too! 

my second card is the opposite - girly! ha!

i watercolored the background and also that AWESOME hot air balloon and cloud images! 

i finished off the card by flicking on some water and the very gently adding gold perfect pearls! people are loving gold right now! so why not add some fun gold!? perfect pearls are so fun, and i don't use this gold as mush as i should! :) ha!

be sure to head over to the Create a Smile stamps blog and see the INCREDIBLE card by Kelly that uses the other stamp set being released! :)

thanks again!
