Owl You Doin?

Hello my crafty friends and Happy Wednesday!
I've been so busy with work and also in my craft room over the last week...I've gotten several cards done, but here is one that I am really loving!  I decided to go with a more simple design, which is really hard for me, I love to have a lot going on!  :)  I used "Chick with Brains" - one of the new August Releases from Pretty Cute Stamps - love this image!
 
 
The little bow is a separate stamp (which you can use for a bowtie or a hairbow!), I stamped it on some patterned paper, cut it out and then glued it on....love it!
 
I used my Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol (one of my favorite mediums of choice)  After I got her all colored and cut out, I used Ranger Glossy Accents to add some dimension to her glasses...makes them look so real! :)
 
 
I'm really happy with the way it turned out and I'm really lovin' this color combo (saw it on a pinterest board).  The center frames (my new diecuts from Simon Says Stamps - link below in my supplies) are popped up on dimensionals for a little extra depth. 
 
Here is another close up:
 
 
Thanks for looking and I hope this gives you a little bit of inspiration....if you haven't grabbed this set yet, run over and get it!  Don't forget to stop by the Pretty Cute Stamps FB page, like us and also post your PCS designs - we'd love to see what you've come up with!
 
Have a fabulous day - I'll be back soon with more crafty goodness!

Pretty Cute Stamps August Release Sneak Peek!


Hello and Happy Saturday crafty friends!  It's finally time for me to reveal a little Sneak Peek of one of the new August Stamp Releases for Pretty Cute Stamps!  The August releases are really fabulous and have so much versatility - you're gonna love 'em! :)
 
Without further adieu.....here's a design I created using "Adorkable"!
 
 
 Can I say how much I love this little girl with the glasses?!  Cutie Patootie!!  I wear glasses (only at night lol) and my hubby says this image reminds him of me when I have mine on....what? lol   This color combo is one of my very favorites and I think works really well here! 
 
Here's a close up:
 
I decided to break up the sentiment....which I think looks great! I used my Sakura Stardust pen to outline the books, her dress and the apple just for a little extra sparkle.  I had a mini apple punch laying around I got from eBay way back in the day and I decided to use it....which adds a little pop of dimension.   All the supplies used are listed below. :)
 
Join us for the August Release and Design Team Blog Hop on the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog this Wednesday, August 20th for some wonderful crafty goodness!  Also, the newest releases will be on sale for the first week!  
 
Have a crafty day and I'll see you soon!
 

For My Sweet Friend and Pretty Cute Stamps August Release Sneak Peek Info

Hello and Happy Tuesday my friendsI've been MIA off and on for vacation, working on a lot of card orders and preparing for my Pretty Cute Stamps Design Team August Release Sneak Peeks beginning on the 15th.  Lots of new super cute stamps to work with and I can't wait to show you what we have in store with the new Release!!  
 
Here is a card that I designed using the "Just Chill" set from the July release that is currently available in the Pretty Cute Stamps store.....so many awesome, cool summer treats in this set and so versatile.  I stamped the popsicles on MFT Sweet Tooth Cardstock and then decided to fussy cut them and pop them up on dimensionals.  I used my Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol to color the images.  It's hard to tell from the picture, but the popsicles are a little shiny and glittery - I used MFT Mixables Sheer Sparkle Glitter.  The Scallop Circle is from the newest release "Circles and Scallops Confetti Cuts" from Reverse Confetti - I love this die, it works so well and it has an embossed edge that I just love!
 
 
 
Starting this Friday, August 15, the super talented Design Team for Pretty Cute Stamps will begin sneak peeks of the new August Releases!!  The Stamp Release Blog Hop is on Wednesday, August 20 so be sure to stop by the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog and check out all the crafty goodness!  :)  
 
 
Have a great rest of the day and I will see you soon!!

Hello everyone, I've been away on vacation for the last week and enjoyed every minute of it! South Padre was absolutely wonderful - so enjoyed being away, hanging out at the beach and just doing whatever we wanted!  Didn't want to come back! lol
