good afternoon!
all week on the Create a Smile Stamps blog, we're showing cute cute cute projects with the brand new January stamp sets being released on Friday!!

this release...i can hardly contain my excitement! it's AMAZING!! 

so amazing, in fact, that i made 2 cards!

my first card uses the cutest get well set EVER - Doctors Helpers!
i watercolored the adorable little nurse mouse with Distress Markers, and then popped it up on the front panel!

on the card front, i used my notebook punch to add some interest to the side, and then watercolored the pills in a rainbow! rainbows always make me feel better! ha!

the sentiment was heat embossed in white onto some black cardstock, and then i added some black and white geographic papers underneath the top and bottom to help the black pop!

my 2nd card was just plain FUN to make!

i did lots of masking and blending with Distress Inks! i used washi tape to mask off some triangles, and then kept it up for the 'sky' and 'grass'! love how it looks!!

the little foxes were also watercolored with Distress Markers, and i just looooove them!
the sentiment was created by combing the new Doctors Helpers set with the new Crystal Letters - Lower stamp set!

the Crystal Letters and Numbers guys...AMAZING!! i LOOOOOOVE them! i'm going to use them alllllllll the time! :) i used some wink of stella on them this time...and oh my goodness! so much awesome!

be sure to stop by the Create a Smile Stamps blog to see Kelly's AMAZING card, too! i honestly love everything she makes!
