Happy Wednesday everyone!!
Well it is a winter wonderland here! We are completely covered with snow and it is bitter cold. No going outside for us. Good thing my Michaels' coupon doesn't expire until Sunday. I have to get there to use it! LOL!
Alright onto the good stuff!! Today is the first day of Storage Units, Ink and More's Sneak Peeks for their awesome new sets for February. I have to tell you when I opened up my package from Denise this month, I squealed!!! I was so in love with the new stamps and I know you will be too!
Today I wanted to sneak peek the brand new set Goin' To the Chapel. Is that song stuck in your head now?! This is the most awesome set for weddings, anniversaries and just to say, "I love you." So here it is!
I couldn't help myself. As soon as I saw the stamps, I immediately thought of a wedding cake. I know, not too creative, but I really wanted my card to look like a cake so I created an accordion card. Then I wanted the groom to look like he is running up the cake to get to the bride. I always think those cakes where they decorate them with the little people are cute so I knew I had the perfect idea for my card! I started off my card by using a piece of brown Core'dinations card stock cut to 5 1/2 by 11 in. I scored my folds at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 5, and 7 1/2. I then cut in a half inch on each side on the second tier and 1 in on each side on the top tier. To finish the cake base, I used my corner rounder to round off all the corners. For the "frosting", I cut white paper to fit each tier, embossed it with my textile embossing folder and ran my Egg Shell copic over the surface to make the texture pop. I then added brown, organdy ribbon bows to each layer to complete the cake look. Next I stamped the bride, the groom and the sentiment from Goin' To The Chapel by Storage Units, Ink and More on white card stock and colored them in with my copics. I added touches of glitter for some sparkle. I then cut out the bride and groom and popped them off the cake. Using my nesties, I cut out the sentiment and a piece of brown card stock, and popped them off as well. I think this would make the perfect card for a new bride and groom!
Now we have an exciting week of sneak peeks for you all leading up to the sets' new release on Sunday, February 1st! So definitely check out the rest of the design teams' awesome creations!
I can hardly wait myself!!!!
Now you didn't think I was going to let you escape without an Izzy story did you? I promise it is a quick one. So like I said yesterday, I think Izzy is a little under the weather. She just didn't play like she usually does and was super cuddly. Well in the morning we decided to take a bath to warm up. She immediately wanted to snuggle as soon as we drained the tub. So I got her dressed and told her to go get her blanket. (It is a small little pink blanket she got as a baby, i.e. just big enough to cover her) We were laying down in the chair, snuggling when I hear this whining coming from the floor. Of course it is Tuxy wanting to join us. Well, there isn't any room, I mean it is a chair, I am laying across it and I have Izzy in my lap, what does he want me to do? So what does Izzy do, she lifts up the blanket and says, "Tuxy, blanket. Tuxy, blanket." Of course he jumps up and has nowhere to go, which makes her laugh. But poor mommy is the one that has to scoot over even further so that she can squeeze the dog in too! Yeesh. I swear they must conspire with each other in the morning on how the are going to torment me that day! LOL!
That is it for me! Off to make my rounds! Don't forget the Pink Cat Challenge over at PCP running until the 10th! Thanks as always for stopping by and leaving your wonderful comments! Smiles!
