Pink Cat Studio Sneak Peeks - Day 1

I was so flattered when Melissa asked me earlier this year to be one of the October guest designers for Pink Cat Studio. You can check out my bio on her blog if you're interested. My buddy Tracey is the other guest designer this month.

On Wednesday, Pink Cat Studio is releasing a brand new rubber stamp set called "Itty Bitty Christmas". And yes.....as usual....completely adorable! I can't wait for you to see the whole set, but until then, I'll be sharing some sneak peeks with you.


Today I'd like to introduce you to Betty the Christmas Fairy...
I used todays sketch challenge over at CSAYL for the layout.
Isn't she the cutest thing?
I think this image could be used for a number of occasions.
I used LOTS of Doodlebug Sugar Coating to make this little fairy sparkle!
Oh, and the cute sentiment is part of the new set!

Next up is Itty Bitty Betty dressed up as a Christmas Tree...
She's so cute in her striped tights holding her candy cane.

And the last peek for today is Betty and Bobby on their reindeer...
How could I not put them up on a rooftop?!
I decided to make a little gift box.I just scored and folded until I had a little box. Then I cut some scraps of red paper to make bricks. For the roof, I folded a piece of paper in half and attached one side of it to the inside of the box with red sticky tape. The other side was attached with Velcro, so the recipient can open and shut the box without destroying my little creation.

I punched out a bunch of small ovals and adhered them in a row. Then I added some Tombo glue above the first row and attached a second row, slightly overlapping the first.I continued making rows until I reached the top. Then I finished it off with a strip of cardstock. In order get little Betty and Bobby on the rooftop, I folded a small strip of cardstock into a triangle and attached it to the roof. Then I was able to adhere my image, giving it some dimension.That's all the peeks you get for today! Be sure to check out this post on the Pink Cat blog for your chance to win the new stamps! I'll be back tomorrow to introduce you to a couple more characters!

Welcome on the rubber team! These are just fabulous MacKenzie! The house is just so cute, that will make such a cute gift! The card with the tree dress is just gorgeous and my favorite one, the Christmas fairy card is so sparkly and I just love the colors you've used to color Betty! Great job! Can't wait to see what you'll come up with tomorrow!
