Special Sneek-Peek and 365 Cards Sketch Challenge

Hi All,
Wow! CHA is just around the corner. We have been so busy preparing for the show. December was spent creating new sets of clear stamps, matching dies and a stunning red rubber release that has the most beautiful vintage valentine images. I am going to share one of these new red rubber releases with you today! 

You may have noticed that I have been on a hot air balloon kick lately. It started with our Hot Air Balloon clear release. Then we did a retro christmas kitty in a hot air balloon this past holiday season and now, my newest favorite, our Vintage Valentine Balloon. 

I stamped the balloon with black Memento in and colored with Copic markers. I then carefully cut around the image with a craft knife. I then pulled out my martha stewart flower punch to create the red "ribbon". I trimed out a piece of coordinating DP for both the runner to the "ribbon" and then a panel for the background. I then layered all onto a red panel (5 by 5"). From our newest two sets of clear that we will be releasing the end of the month - and celebrating with a blog hop release party, I created the little 3D flowers and stamped the phrase with Forest Moss distress ink. 

Our new flower release we will be showing you is so super fun! You will be able to create your own Prima -style coordinating flowers! You are going to LOVE this release! It will be the best Die and Stamp release out there!  I hope you all enjoy this special preview. It is just a small sample of what is to come!

Be sure to check back as we will be starting our sneek-peaks for the Blog Hop Release Party on the 19th!
