Little Paper Shop Monday Challenge

Hello again and welcome to this week's Little Paper Shop Monday Challenge. This is my third post of the day, so be sure to scroll through all of them to see all my other goodies!!

For this week's challenge, Allison drew up this super cute sketch for us. I started by stamping my candy jar, sentiment, and piece of candy from the new Sweet set, on a piece of Gina K. White. I then colored it with my Copics and layered it with Cool Caribbean, Summer Sun, and Riding Hood Red. The ribbon is from SU, and the brads are from Creative Express(bought at Hobby Lobby). The red strips were run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. I used my SU oval punches for the sentiment.
Wanna play along? Just upload your creation to whichever gallery you want using the LPSC18 keyword. Then be sure to go to the Little Paper Shop blog and leave a link to your creation. The winner will get two free digital images!!
Thanks again for stopping by, have a great day!


Yayy, today is FINALLY release day at Paper Pretties and I am SO excited to show you the new Stamp of the Month stamp, Aloha Sophia!! Isn't she a PEACH!! Here are all the details for the release, and then we will talk about my card!!

On Monday, June 1st Paper Pretties will be having their monthly Stampin In Your Jammies party!! The party starts at 8pm EST and will last until 10pm. We will be issuing only one challenge, so be sure to come and play along!! Besides the challenge, chatter, and all around fun, we will also be releasing Make a Splash Sophia and introducing our new Stamp Of The Month. Sneak peeks start on Saturday May 30th!! Hope to see you there!!

So, as I said, this is the new Stamp of the Month, Aloha Sophia. For my card today, I decided to use Danielle's Weekly Challenge, which is this sketch. I did flip it, and add a few tidbits here and there, but the general idea is still there!! The main image was stamped on a piece of Gina K. White paper and then colored with my Copics. I got the idea for this color combo from my fellow Prettie Girl, Charmaine. She paired Groovy Guava and Tangerine Tango a couple weeks ago for one of our Wednesday challenges and I fell in LOVE with the combo. I decided to add a little Certainly Celery to the mix, and I gotta tell you, I am LOVING it!! The DP's are both retired SU(the Celery is part of its' Prints Pack and the Guava was part of the Ginger Blossom). All my ribbons are from SU, along with the punch used for the sentiment. The Spiral Clips and brads are from Creative Express. I did some piercing, shocking, and it was done!!
Be sure to come to the party tonight and hang out with us!! Thanks for stopping by, AGAIN!!

A Summer Picnic

I am SUPER excited about this month's My Favorite Things release...wait til you see what I made for the hop-SO STINKIN CUTE!! But for now, I have a teaser of the new Who's That Girl set Let's Picnic. For my card, I used Cindy's MFT Sketch from this week. I stamped my main image on an MFT Perfect Panel twice. I then colored her in with my Copics on one, and just the arm holding the plate on the other. I also stamped her on a piece of the MFT Summer Collection Paper Pack, and used that to paper piece her dress. I also cut out the plate separately so it would look like she was holding it. The sandwich, basket, and loaf of bread were all stamped separately, colored with Copics, and cut out. My DP panels on the back are more of the Summer Collection paper. All the brads and ribbons are from SU. The sentiment panel, which I had to add so I did alter the sketch a tiny bit, was created using SU Circle punches. The card stock colors on this card are Real Red, Cool Caribbean, and Regal Rose.
Well, that is it for me now!! Be sure to come back tomorow morning when I will have another peek for you using the new Who's That Grillin Guy set, and tomorrow night this month's hop goes live at 10PM EST, so you don't want to miss that either!! Thanks again for stopping by!!
