Scrappy Moms Sneak Peak # 1 -Episode 17


I am SOOOOO SOOOOO SOOOOO excited to be the Guest Designer for Scrappy Moms Stamps for the month of March! I was over the moon excited when Tammy and Mel told me they were going to start in March having a Guest Designer each month and they wanted me!!! I love their stamps. If I had my way I would already own ALL their sets, but I have to just buy one at a time. I also think they are both such great ladies, so friendly and sweet! Thank you SOOOO much for asking me and letting me join the rest of the design team for this month!

So here is a glimpse at the brand new set, Kids Incorporated, which I have been playing around with.



Here is my first project...as you can see it isn't kid related at all. That is the great thing about Scrappy Moms Stamps, they are so easily used for all sorts of projects. I don't have any kids and I don't make much kid related items, but I love this set because some of them can be used for other events and also when I do need to make cards for kids, I know right where to come for some great sentiments.

You can already purchase this wonderful set of stamps at the Scrappy Moms Stamps Blog!!!

Here is my first Sneak Peak...



As soon as I read this sentiment I started to envision a happy couple dancing under the night sky, and I like to picture a romantic man saying this to his woman. I cut the couple from Sweethearts and boy was that some intricate work. I don't think I have ever worked with layers that tiny before! I have always seen people just use the black base before in projects, but never with all the layers made. I wanted the grass to be bright green to really contrast against the night sky. I also wanted the splash of color in their clothing to really make them pop! The moon came from Create a Critter and the starts are from a Fiskars Punch. I decided to do heat embossing for the sentiment, using my Versamark and white embossing powder. Love how that turned out. This is such a romantic card.

Here is a You Tube Tutorial I made of the card, I know it's a bit long, but that always seems to happen to me. You can always fast forward parts that don't interest you.



I'll be back tomorrow with even more sneak peaks as well as my Flaunt it Fridays Post!!! Hope you enjoy!
