Pink Cat Studio Sneak Peek Day 1 - Dress Up Sweet Pea


Hi Friends! It's sneak peek day at Pink Cat Studio! Whoohoo! There will be 2 stamp sets to be released this month. The first stamp set is the "Dress Up Sweet Pea" stamp set. Ooh, this stamp set is so fun because there's so many possibilities with all the different combinations you can create with this stamp set. The release date of this stamp set is on Thursday, March 26th!

Pink Cat Studio Contest

Who will be the next Cutie Patootie?? Leave a comment in the Pink Cat Studio blog post corresponding with this contest and tell Melissa who you think the next cutie patootie should be. It could be an animal or a human or something from out of this world? Anything goes so be as creative as you like :)This contest will end this Wednesday at midnight EST and the winner will be announced during the new release this Thursday. The winner will be selected randomly from everyone who enters and she will receive her choice of any PCS stamp set. I can't wait to her your suggestions!

Okay. . .this will be a long post because I have two cards and two sketches posted. I'll try not to bore you too much with my banter! LOL!

This first sample is a "baby boy" card. I tell ya'. . .I have the most difficult time creating boy cards but for once, I actually had no problem with this card. I think it's because "Sweet Pea" is so darn cute that you can't go wrong.




I actually used "scrapbook embellishments" for the sentiment, tags, and stars. It was much easier to use the scrapbook embellishments than to come up with my own "boy" design. LOL!! It's already challenging for me so the embellishments sort of helped with the design.

I colored my image with my Copic Markers and added a bit of Stickles to parts of the image.


Card Details:

Stamps: Pink Cat Studio "Dress Up Sweat Pea"
Paper: Colorbok designer paper, SU Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: Colorbok scrapbook embellishments, Stickles, Basic Basic Ribbon, Fiskar mini scallop scissors

Okay here is the girl version of "Dress Up Sweet Pea". See, I told you.. . .you can create different variations with this stamp set. If you visit the Pink Cat Studio blog site, you'll see the different combinations created by the rest of the design team. Go check it out!

I again colored the image with Copic Markers but rather than adding Stickles, I used SU Crystal Effects to parts of the image.

I had a lot of fun putting the two sneak peek cards together. It's like playing paper dolls.

Anyway. . .be sure to come back tomorrow and check out the 2 projects I created for the second new release by Pink Cat Studio. There will be 2 tutorials so be sure to visit my blog tomorrow!
Check out the fabulous work by the other design team members:
