Summer Fun- Stay Cool!!

Hey everyone!! I am back with another Prettie Peek!! Today's peek is of the SUPER CUTE new Summer Fun set. This set was designed to coordinate with the Make A Splash Sophia that has already been released. It is FULL of fun accessories and the CUTEST sayings!! I am LOVING this little pool, aren't you? Here are all the release details, and then we will talk about my card!!

On Saturday, August 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 having three challenges, so be sure to come and play along!! Besides the challenges, chatter, and all around fun, we will also be releasing two new sets, Aloha Sophia to the public, and introducing our new Stamp Of The Month. Sneak peeks start on Wednesday July 29th!! Hope to see you there!!

I started my card with Cindy's Dare To Get Dirty sketch in mind,(you must be a fan club member to view this link, so get signed up if you haven't already!!), and this week's Prettie Challenge. I added the details at the bottom!! I stamped the pool and duck floaty on Gina K. White, and colored them in with my Copics. I then cut them both out. I decided to add the pool, and lean the floaty up against it...cute huh! After coloring them, and adding them to my main circle panel(Gina K. White, Cameo Coral, Summer Sun, and Tempting Turquoise), I did some piercing and then covered them both in Crystal Effects to make them shiny. I used SU punches for my sentiment panel. The DP is from the Pink Flamingo pack from SU. My Ribbon is also SU, brads are from Hobby Lobby, and the clip is from Joanne's.
ETA: I totally lifted this from Daniellen's blog so if it sounds like dejavus, it is, lol!!

My Favorite Sketch

I know it's no secret, but I LOVE sketch challenges!! I know, you are!! Anywho, this is the card I made for this week's My Favorite Things sketch challenge. This week's challenge was provided by Frances, doesn't she just rock??!! This is also another sample that I made for my Smooch Tutorial..if you are interested or curious about these paints, check it out!! I started by stamping my monster, from the Stephanie Fizer Hooga Booga set, on an MFT Perfect Panel. I then colored her body with my Copics. Her arms and legs were colored with Taffy Smooch Ink. Here face was stamped separately, colored with Copics, then added to the main image. I added some Siren Smooch Paint for her checks. I did a little piercing, and then layered it with Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, and Rose Red. The DP is from the retired SU Cutie Pie pack. I used my Eyelet Border Punch from Su for the edge. The brads are all from Su, the spiral clip is from Joanne's, and my ribbon is from SU and the MFT Spring Ribbon Nest. To decorate the plain pink twill ribbon, I added some hearts using my Smooch paints. For more details on how I did that, check out my tutorial. My sentiment was created using all SU punches. I ran the white panel in the background through the Cuttlebug with my Swiss Dots Folder.
