countdown to the Create a Smile January release!

it's almost here! the super cute and FUN january release for Create a Smile stamps!!

today i have a card on the Create a Smile stamps blog showing a peak of  one of the sets!

it's so FUN! this set is PERFECT for creating encouragement cards, to cheer someone up, or to just make someone smile!! i can't WAIT for it to be released!

i colored all of the clouds and the sweet little bird with copics! then i fussy cut them out.
the background was created by using some gesso over a rain drop stencil in a few areas. once dry, i added some blue distress ink by way of watercoloring it on! i cut that into a banner for the card! some of the clouds are popped up for dimension, and then i added a few subtle white enamel dots!

LOVE this card! it will be perfect to send to someone who is having a lot of bad days! and hopefully it will make them smile for a minute or two! :)

be sure to check out the Create a Smile blog for the other AMAZING sneak peeks by Anja! they're INCREDIBLE, as usual, i love how she thinks OUTSIDE the box! :)
