Happy New Year!

It's a new year and time for new beginnings! As I said before, I am so excited to be a part of the Sweet n' Sassy Design Team and today is the first official day of Sneak Peeks for the upcoming release of stamps on January 7th! There are four sets being released and I will be showing them to you in the next days before the release! How much fun is this? I get to create cards with the newest stamps on the market before anyone else! Yes, I'm spoiled, and loving it!

On the left side of my blog, you'll see the list of the wonderful Design Team members and their blogs. Please take a moment and browse their sites and just see the creative talent I'll be working with in the next months.

This first card is from the Eskimo Kisses stamp set and how cute are these two? I stamped them on Whisper White cardstock then colored them with Copic Markers. I glittered the fur on their coats and hats, then cut them out and laid them aside. My designer papers are from the Wassail paper pad by Basic Grey! I am really loving their papers! My larger sentiment is a clear sticker by The Paper Studio and "celebrate" (Studio G) is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added a organza bow, nail heads and glittery stars to finish the card. My card is perfect for the Fresh Batch Sketch Challenge and for the OCC Challenge! (Sketch below) Card size: 6 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches

This last card is a digistamp that is available at Sweet 'n Sassy stamps. The Baby New Year is perfect for today's post, and I printed him on Whisper White cardstock, cut him out with the Inverted Square Nestabilities set that my sister got me for Christmas! (Thanks, Robin, I love you!) I colored him with Copic markers, then laid him aside to construct my card.

I found a new paper pad at Michael's I just HAD to have. It is called "Playful Posies" by My Mind's Eye and I just love every single paper in that stack. No doubt, you'll grow bored when I keep using it over and over again! I layered my papers onto a steel blue card, added an orange satin ribbon tied in a knot, and finished it off with a peel-off sticker and rhinestones. I used the new Star border punch by Martha Stewart for the striped paper, though it is hard to see! Card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches
