hi hi hi!!
today i am sharing a few projects I made for the NEW Create a Smiles Stamps Kit release!! yay!!!!! it's SOOOO exciting!! this kit is AMAZING, INCREDIBLE and FANTASTIC!! eeee! the colors are sooooooo wintry and wonderful, and i LOOOOOVE all of the goodies! you can see the exactly what is included in the kit on the Create a Smile Stamps blog! :)
my first card uses the AWESOME ornament die that is included! i didn't use the inside portion for this card, but i will create a card with that inside soon! it's tooooo sweet! anyway! i thought it would be the sweetest little way to enclose my 'beach' scene!!
that's right - beach, not snow!! it doesn't snow here in SC, we're all about the warm weather, so i thought it would just be CUTE to create a sandy-man to send some warm wishes this year! he he he!
i watercolored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then popped up the scene! I added lots of sequins around, behind and on top of the scene! to finish off the card, i used some of the letter stickers and chevron arrows that i stitched on! OHHHH! and i can't forget to mention that i used the stencil to add some white on white texture to the card base - hello snowflakes!!
my second card uses the other ADORABLE images in the included stamp set!
i watercolored these with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers too, and then popped them up on the background of that card! i used Milled Lavender and Wilted Violet Distress Inks to create the watercolor look on the background! the sentiment was heat embossed and is from an older set called Cool Buddies (LOVE that set!)!
i used my white gel pen to add some accents to the coloring! and then, i made an executive decition to chop off the 'blades' of those ice skates that he's wearing! i am ALLLLLLL about ice skating and hockey, so believe me, it was a surprise to me too! ha! but doesn't it look like he's running to those presents?! ha ha!! he looks so happy!
so be sure to check out the full reveal of the kit on the Create a Smile Stamps blog and to get your hands on one while you can!! it's amazing!
