It’s Tea Time!

lps_jantent_tbuOk, I’m a bit behind! I should have shown you this adorable set yesterday, when it was time for its sneak peek. But this week has gotten the better of me, lol, and I just didn’t have time to make a card! So, let me introduce you to Tea Time, the newest release from {Little Paper Shop}!!!!! Isn’t it darling???? Now, my dear friend Jessica is going to be after me for not giving this set the “Alice treatment”, lol — it does totally remind me of Alice in Wonderland. But the colors didn’t match the paper, you see — so plans had to change!

It just so happens that today, which is release day for the stamp sets, is also the day of the {Little Paper Shop} DT’s monthly challenge! And guess who got to do the first challenge of the New Year? The newbie member – me! I asked everyone to make a tent card using one of the new release images that we’ve shown you this week. To see everyone’s use the links on the right of my blog to hop on over to their blogs to check them out! To see the cards the DT created using the Tea Time set in particular, go to the {Little Paper Shop} blog to see them!

Now, y’all are probably sick to death of me and my new love affair with Shimmerz, but I don’t care!!!! I painted her dress with Pink Poinsetta Shimmerz Blingz, her hair with the brand new Shimmerz Blingz Pixie Dust, the teapot and cups with the brand new Shimmerz Blingz Hottie Pink, and the grass with Olive Shimmerz paint. I watercolored it all first, though. Because my Prima Peaches paper (which, btw, is on sale — a 6×6 pad for $2.79 at Jacksonbelle Embellishments!)was kind of busy, I tried to go easy¬† on the embellies – just a few flowers. In the center of the smallest green ones, I dotted some Crystal Stickles.

Pink Papery Studios Shimmer Baby – Post #2 for Wednesday!

pps_shimmerbaby_tbu1It’s Pink Papery Studios Challenge Wednesday today – and I just can’t believe how fast the weeks are flying by already! I love all of the weekly challenges I participate in, because they really make me stretch my comfort zone. One thing I rarely do is use alot of metallics, or shimmer. I just forget abut it. I’m getting better about the shimmer, because I’m in love with all the new fabuous shimmery paints out their (this card uses Shimmerz Paintz) – but I still am terrible about metallic paper. But then, I saw this week’s challenge:

Sparkle and shine are a great way to start the New Year. Lindsay suggested that we use metallics in our creations this week. Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold. Think silver, gold, copper, mirrored paper, etc.

Well, I could see that it was time to bust out of my little hidey hole, lol. I used the Pink Papery Studios set 100% Natural and enlarged my little guy until he was big enough to take up half of the card. I colored him using Shimmerz Paintz, and Copics for his face, and used dimensionals to adhers him to the scalloped rectangle I cut out with my Nesties. Underneath my copper layer I put a piece of Cuttlebugged (used the Floral Frenzy folder) piee of Groovy Guava cardstock. To add shimmer, I used my Sakura glitter pen to outline the raised flowers on it. I also added copper brads on teh side, and white dots underneath to set it ogg. My sentiment is printed in black, but I went over it with my glitter pen, and added dots around the edges with the glitter pen. I’m telling, you need sunglasses on when you check out this sweet sleeping baby irl!

On a funny side note, DD was very concerned the somebody stuffed that poor bay in a flower pot. I guess I’ve never shown her any Anne Geddes stuff, and now I probably shouldn’t! She really wanted to know who was going to get him out! If you get a chance, be sure to check out my 1st and 3rd posts today – it’s a busy week! Also, head over to the right of my sidebar and go see all of the other Pink Papery Studios talented DT members’ cards for the day – they ALL rocked it out!
