Pink Cat Studio Sneak Peek Day #1 - Fairy Friends

Hey there Friends!! Guess what today is? It's Pink Cat Studio's Day 1 sneak peak of the "Fairy Friends" which will be released on August 6th! Whoohoo! OMG. . .these stamps are the cutest and so versatile, I tell ya'! I had so much fun creating my samples!

I had pre-scheduled this post to post earlier but I put the wrong time! Ugggh! That's okay. . .I caught my error early enough!

My card was inspired by the card that Joy of "A Place to Be Me" sent me. I know there's a tutorial on SCS for this project called "Tri-Shutter Card" and it's slightly different from my card. I just measured the dimensions from Joy's card and it was super easy to make.

The image I chose to use was the "bunny fairy". I decided to add a little book marker to the card. I love reading books so I thought the recepient could use a book marker too!!

I colored the little bunny with my Copic Markers but I forgot to add the highlights to her face. I usually add the dots after I'm done with all my coloring but I forgot to add it.

Anyway. . .if you want to check out the SCS version of this card, you can find the tutorial HERE. Try it out. . .after you create the first one. . .it'll be a piece of cake from then on!

Card Details:

Stamps: Pink Cat Studio "Fairy Friends"
Paper: DCWV designer paper, SU Creamy Caramel, Cameo Coral
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: Metal tags, Round Corner Punch, Organdy Ribbon, CTMH Just Blooms, Deja View flower brad, Making Memories flower brad, SU Key Tag punch, Grosgrain ribbon, Fiskar Scallop Scissors

My second card is another interactive sort of card. . .it's a slider card called "Surprise Pop-up Card" that I saw on SCS. I actually tried this tutorial out a year ago. . .it was all the rage at that time. I really loved this project because it's such a fun card to make. You can find the tutorial on SCS . . .HERE. Again, try it out. . .it's really simple. . it may look complicated at first but it's really not.

This time I decided to use my "kitty fairy". When you slide the tag up from the pocket, it pulls the front panel up to reveal a hidden message. You can pull the tag all the way up and write a message on it too!

Hey. . .my goal is to work on the tutorials on SCS. . .there's a masterlist that you can choose over 200 different tutorials. How fun is that? Go check it out and try out the tutorials . . .there's a lot of good ones to play with. Click Here for the SCS Masterlist of tutorials

Be sure to check back tomorrow for Day 2 of Pink Cat Studio's sneak peeks. Stop by the other designers blog site and check out all the beautiful creations that they created!! They all have such fabulous ideas!

TWO wonderful cards Maria! You've convinced me that there's a hidden craft supply vault in your craft room as I don't recall ever seeing you use the same DP twice! Love how you put all these DPs together to create a lovely card. Have a wonderful week! Hugs, Cami
