C.C. Designs Preview Day 2: Tiny Christmas

Hello everyone!

We are on day 2 of Previews for the OCTOBER Release at C.C. Designs.  This month it’s all about Christmas …and it’s cuteness overload!! The release will be available for purchase this Thursday at 12pm CST.

Today I am previewing these little cuties from the Tiny Christmas clear stamp set and the matching Tiny Christmas Outline Dies.  I absolutely love this little set!

There will be 5 new stamp sets in the October release, an adorable Make A Reindeer Metal Die, a new Christmas Paper Pad, and some coordinating Christmas Enamel Dots.

Tiny Christmas

I started with stamping these little sweeties on X-Press It Blending Card with CC Designs Black Olive Ink.  Once I was done with all the coloring I die cut the images with the matching dies, setting them aside while I cut out and constructed the little treat bags.

Zombie Love

Hi everyone!

It’s new release time again at Whimsy Stamps.  I decided to take a little different twist to what normally comes to mind when you think of Zombies.  Since these hands from the Zombie-licious Clear Stamp Set are in the shape of a heart, I turned them into a love themed card.

I created the shaker element with the Shaker Maker Banner Die Set and some white tulle, adding different supplies for the shaker bits.  I added die cut leaves from the Leaf Foliage 2 Die Set and some flowers to the top of the shaker element to complete my card.

I think your “soda” awesome

Good morning!

I am back today with another retro themed card featuring ‘Car Hop Clara‘ and the ‘Burger and Soda Die‘ from C.C. Designs Stamps.  This was such a fun set to work with!

Soda Awesome2

I had so much fun creating the burger for the sign!  I cut all the pieces out using X-Press It Blending Card so I could color them to look like an actual burger.  Once all the pieces were colored and assembled I tackled the hard part of figuring out where to put the completed burger.  I finally decided on a wall sign for the diner Miss Clara works in…lol.

Soda Awesome1

I used the Quad Collage Die to cut out the sentiment and finished the card with a few coordinating enamel dots from the store.

As always, there is an abundance of inspiration to be found in the store here.

C.C. Designs ~ You can do anything!

Good morning everyone!

Oh my goodness…I was SO excited to work with ‘Rosie Riveter‘ from the September New Release from C.C. Designs.   I immediately thought of war planes and was on a mad hunt for paper to make my idea work.

Rosie is such an iconic part of World War II.  The women had to help out and work in a variety of positions that were previously closed to them.  The aviation industry saw the greatest increase in female workers during our country’s time of need.

Rosie the Riveter2

I printed Rosie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following copic markers:

~Copics~
Skin:  E11/00/000/0000-R20/30  Eyes:  BG72/70  Lips:  E04-R32/30
Pants:  B97/95/93/91-YR23/Y15/Y11
Bandana:  R46/27/24 – white gel pen
Shirt, Socks, and Rag:  N2/1/0
Shoes:  N8/5/4/3

Rosie the Riveter1

I wasn’t originally going to fussy cut her out, but one of my markers wasn’t playing nice and blobbed on my image.  I had to take a deep breath and figure out how to save her as I only had her shoes left to color.  So…my plans changed and I am so pleased with how she turned out.  I call that a happy accident.  The airplanes are all fussy cut.

The paper is from a digi file I purchased on Etsy found here.  The dies are from Momma Elephant and La-La Land Crafts.

As always, there is an abundance of inspiration to be found in the store here.

Welcome Little One

Good morning everyone!

Who says Zebra’s have to be black and white?  I couldn’t resist turning ‘Z is for Zebra‘ from All Dressed Up Stamps into this adorable little gift tag.

Welcome Little One

This super sweet Zebra was printed on X-Press It Blending Card and was colored with Copic Markers.

~Copics~
R00/000/0000-RV00/000/0000-BV20

Welcome Little One1

I pleated some pretty pink ribbon with a needle before
tucking it behind the sentiment strip.

Welcome Little One2

The patterned paper was a small scrap I had in my stash.  It kind of looks like faint gray Zebra stripes, and it has pink flowers which is always a bonus in my book…lol!

Welcome Little One3

The dies are from Marianne Designs (Tag set-CR1352), La-La Land Crafts, Magnolia, and Rox Stamps.  I die cut the smaller tag twice, once on the patterned paper and once out of a white scrap.  I then glued them together to make it appear like it was thicker.

I finished it off with a few adorable flowers and a little bling.

The gorgeous flowers are from I Am Roses, the links are below:
S10-15 – White Small Craft Paper Flowers
R2-2 – Mini Soft Pink Paper Flowers
R2-518 – Mini Variegated White – Soft Pink Paper Flowers
