Boy have I got a treat for you today!
Today I get to reveal that Crafter's Companion
is releasing FIFTEEN new stamp sets at CHA this week!
These fifteen sets are cling mounted stamps
from the "Imagine Collection"of Stamp-It Australia.
The design team had about a week to play
with the images in digi format and create
as many cards as we desired or were able
to be showcased in the Crafter's Companion booth.
I was able to get six cards made
and I carefully packaged them up between layers
of tissue paper and washi and sent them out
with my blessing through the USPS this morning.
So excited that some of my work will be seen there!
Wish I could have hand-delivered them personally,
but this is the next best thing. :)
Today I'll share my first:
The "Imagine Collection" for Stamp-It Australia
is full of beautiful images -- butterflies, dragonflies, wildlife,
but if you know me, you know that I gravitate toward
the cute, the sweet, and the whimsical.
So even though it was an absolute delight
to get to work with ALL the new releases,
when I saw this cute little girl here, I was just itching
to create a card with her.
I did a LOT of paper piecing with her.
Her hair, the bundle on her back, her kimono,
all the trim and her hair clip...
and then did a lot of watercoloring right over top
with Tim Holtz Distress Markers, scribbled on
an acrylic block and picked up with a water brush.
I added some papers from the Miss Caroline collection
from My Mind's Eye, and die cut a doily from MFT,
which I chopped up and used various pieces of.
The little bunch of flowers beside the sentiment
are from another image in the same stamp set.
I hope you like her!
And I hope you'll come back soon for
more sneak peaks of the new sets.
Thanks for popping by. :)
