Oh Baby! Some Pink Cat!

Happy Tuesday again!

This is actually my second post for today so be sure to scroll down for my Twinkling Tuesday creation.

I am so excited that it is finally time for the new Pink Cat Studio stamp release! Today kicks off our two day sneak peek schedule culminating in the new stamp release on Thursday! I have to tell you every release I am more and more blown away by the exceptional stamps and the amazing talent of the DT. Wow! And this time is no exception. Melissa is releasing two sets of stamps for babies! A dress up set that I will be previewing today and another adorable set with babies doing all sorts of things I will preview tomorrow. What is so great about these two sets is not only can they be used for all sorts of occasions but they can also be changed into a boy or a girl! Melissa has thought of everything!!!

So without further ado here are my cards using the soon to be released Sweet Pea Dress Up set!

My first card is a birthday card I created for a little boy who has a birthday around Easter!

Aren't those ears the greatest! Little Sweet Pea can dress up in so many things it is awesome! I started this card by stamping Sweet Pea from the new Dress Up Sweet Pea set by Pink Cat Studio on white card stock making sure to mask off the top of his head. I then stamped the bunny ears over the top so it looks like he has them on his head. Next I stamped the baby onesie and bottle separately, cut them out and glued them on top of my baby body. Once I had my Sweet Pea constructed I colored him in using my copics. Using SCS sketch challenge 6 for the layout, I layered on yellow and dark teal card stock along with some DP from Cosmo Cricket. I placed some ribbon around the bottom and through the hole I punched in my tag and placed three yellow brads in the corner. To complete the card, I stamped the sentiment, "Hoppy Birthday" from Billy Plate 1 on white card stock, mounted it on teal card stock and placed three blue rhinestones on it. A fun eater/boy/birthday card!

My second card for the sneak peeks is very dear to my heart as it is the invitation I am sending out for Izzy's second birthday party!!!! As you know Izzy loves bees and actually carries a little bee purse with her everywhere! So this stamp could not have been any more perfect!!!

OMGoodness isn't sweet pea as a bee the cutest!! Reminds me so much of Izzy especially since she is still only starting to get hair! LOL!! Anywhoo I started the invitations by first stamping Sweet Pea from the new Dress Up Sweet Pea set by Pink Cat Studio on white card stock making sure to mask off the top of her head. I then stamped the bee hat on top, along with the bee costume and balloon that I cut out and mounted on her body. When everything was attached, I colored the whole bee in using my copics. To make the invitation itself, I layered on pieces of yellow and black card stock along with some DP from American craft that I thought looked like a honey comb. The writing is printed on white using my computer. To complete the invitation, I cut out yellow and black card stock along with my image, using my nesties and mounted it on the side. It is just so fitting for Izzy and I got her stamp of approval! LOL!

Now it is time to go see the other amazingly talented DT's creations! Wow they are the coolest and I have a special announcement to make!! The super talented Sparkle Smith will be joining us this month as a guest designer!!! Yay!! So make sure to pass on some extra love to her!
And last but not least, a release party would not be a party without a prize right! Here are the deets!

Hi Janna!
OMGosh, this little baby is too cute...love the bunny ears!!! :) Great job on masking and coloring on both cards. This looks like a great set to play with! Cute invites! That's so cute that Izzy likes bees! We had some honey bees in our one outbuilding and didn't realize it until honey started running down the wall...how cool is that! Take care. I'm off to see what else you've been up to, I feel like I'm always catching up! lol I really enjoy visiting with you Janna and seeing all your beautiful creations!

Hey Janna! Beautiful job on your sneak peek! Love that idea to use a tag for the design of your card. Your coloring is fantastic and I love that color combo. . .it's pretty.

What a fantastic idea to use sweet pea for the invitation. . .it fits so well! Is that a real invitation? If it is, well. . it's perfect especially because Izzy love bees!! Love your sentiment "bee sure to buzz by". . .LOL!. . .it's a perfect sentiment for the image!


Mariska said...

Wow love your projects sweetie!! I absolutely adore how you coloured the onesie with the Hippetiehoppetie card :) and it's so clever of you to use that sentiment stamp!! Would have never thought of that. And as for Izzy's invite... I LOVE IT! Love everthing about it from the layout to the way you coloured the image to the "bee sure to buzz by". Perfect papers, it's just gorgeous! I'm sure the people who'll receive this will love it!! Can't wait to see what you come up with tomorrow!!
