InStyle Stamps Sneak Peek - Sasha

Hey Friends!! It's "Sneak Peek Day" at InStyle Stamps! Whoohoo!! Drum roll please. . . .it's my pleasure to introduce to you. . . ."Sasha"!! Isn't she "hot" or what?!! To be more specific, "red hot"!! LOL!! I colored Sasha in red because not only is Valentines right around the corner but she wanted to make a big statement on her debut day and what other color can make a bigger statement than red! Right?

Sasha will be available for sale on Friday, February 13th along with 2 of her friends, Lindsay and Steph. Stop by Instyle Stamps blog site to check out the various cards and projects created using the new releases.

There's a lot of fun stuff going on at InStyle this week!! Whoohoo! Yup, InStyle Stamps is full of activities. Here is the scheduled activities going on at InStyle this week:

*Monday, February 9th is Method Monday. Latrice will be featuring her technique this week.

*Tuesday, February 10th, release date of InStyle Stamps Digi Images

*Wednesday, February 11th - Sneak Peak by Maria (me!!)

*Thursday, February 12th is Thankful Thursday .

*Friday, February 13th, Steph will make her debut and the stamp release of Lindsay, Sasha, and Steph!!

Okay. . .just a little info on my card!! I decided to create a 5.5" round card. I colored Sasha with my Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. Yup, you read it correctly. No Copic Markers! LOL!!

I finally brought up my Prismacolor Pencils from the family room into my craft room so I can actually use them. It's been sitting in the family room under the table for couple months and I kept forgetting that they existed. LOL!

I did color the background with my Copic Markers. I meant to use a beige color but when I colored the card stock, I didn't realize how "orangey" the color was until I was already half way coloring it. Argggh!!

I decided to layer my sentiment with a mediums size Prima flower, a heart shape punched using SU Heart to Heart punch and the Word Window Punch for the sentiment.

Anyway, stop by Instyle stamps on Friday the 13th to check out the new stamp and you can now also check out the new Digi images released yesterday!!

Hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday!!
