Let the Fun Begin!!!

So, I have been talking about it for over a week now, and it is finally here!! Today is the first day of the Paper Pretties sneak peeks before our Stampin In Your Jammies bash on Friday night at 7CST. Paper Pretties will be releasing three new sets as well as the SUPER cute Bunny Slippers stamp you have seen on my blog from time to time. Today, I have two Prettie Peeks for you, the first is for the SCS sketch challenge. I used the new Paper Pretties set Surf's Up!!! Isn't it AWESOME!! I love that little penguin riding the wave!! I used my aqua painter, SU markers as well as my Marigold Morning and Cool Caribbean ink refills. The paper is from 7 Gypsies and I used it for the three long panels as well as the surf board. I added some hemp twine and ric rack as well as some white brads. The base is Kraft cardstock which I ran through my Cuttlebug with the distressed stripes folder. I stamped the penguin twice and popped it up.

This next card is my Prettie Wednesday card. Two weeks ago, Jana challenged us to use a sketch she had used on one of HER sneak peeks. I tried...I really did, to use a new set on this sketch, so it could be a peek....BUT I kept seeing her card in my I was scared to copy it. In the end, this is what I came up with....yikes!! It has a MEGA ton of layers on it-which is totally me, but hardly any stamping and I am not all that impressed with it. I love the sentiment though!! It is from another one of the new sets, Bugs and Fishes. The sentiment is actually one line "Happy Birthday Bugs and Fishes"- cute huh!! I stamped the words separately and punched them out. The rest is fairly simple...punch punch punch, layer layer layer,embellish embellish embellish!!

ETA: I Forgot it was my week to post the challenge....okay, that is a fib, I thought it was someone elses turn...thanks Jodi for the heads up...LOL!! Some coordinator I am, huh-hehe!! SOOO, my challenge to you Prettie girls, and all of you out there in blog land that wanna play along is to make a card using at least 3 different types of embellishments.
