My Turn!

Yeah! It's my turn to share a sneak peek for Storage Units, Ink & More with you! This bathing beauty is from the new "Get Your Goggles On!" set that will be released on July 1st. Isn't she adorable? She is absolutely a dream to color. I used Copic Markers to bring her to life. I really enjoyed working with this set and I felt a little like I was back in my childhood days playing with paper dolls. Remember how much fun it was to pick out just the right outfit? OK, I am probably dating myself again aren't I? Do they even still make paper dolls?

How would YOU like a chance to play with this set? Denise from SU Ink & More has generously donated a set for each design team member to give away as blog candy. And just what do you have to do to win? Simply leave a comment on this post (one per person, please) and on Friday evening I will select one lucky entry with the help of Random.org. GOOD LUCK!!!

I have also found a new favorite card stock. Have you tried Core'dinations yet? It has a core color that coordinates with the surface color and it has both a textured and smooth side. I used some of the Aqua Blues for this card. It is great for any use but it REALLY rocks when used in tearing, antiquing or sanding. Storage Units, Ink & More will be carrying this paper soon. It's a must try.

The PP comes from Anna Griffin's Alix Collection and the fun flowers are "Flora Doodles" from Petaloo. I used my new pinking shears on the border and added faux stitching with my paper piercer and Signo white pen.... and just to add a touch of bling, I added one small crystal to her bag.

I can't wait to show you all the other creations I have whipped up with these new stamps. They are so much fun and they stamp so beautifully. Be sure and check in tomorrow and I'll share which design team member will be showing off another Sneak Peek!




It's all about the details:
Card stock: Core'dinations and SU
Patterned Paper: Anna Griffin, Alix Collection
Stamps: Storage Units, Ink & More
Ink: Memento and Distress Ink
Accessories: Foam Squares, Petaloo flowers
Tools: Scor-pal, Nestabilities, Paper piercer, Signo pen, Copic Markers

I love your card and you brought back so many memories when you shared your love for paper dolls. In elementary school one of my classmates was a wonderful artist. At recess she would draw paper dolls for all of us and design all kinds of clothing which we colored. My favorite set that she gave me was the I Dream of Jeannie paper doll with fantastic costumes. I haven't thought about this for years so thank you for bringing back such a wonderful childhood memory:)

Nice and Summery! Love the bright cheerful colors and the zigzag that you used adds some zip to this fun little card.

PS How's your mom doing? I did send her a card & I believe my mom sent her one as well. Mom got a good report from her doctor who said he'll see her back in 2 months now. She is starting to walk now without using her cane.
