First of all... you know what i noticed today? I am only 300 hits away from 100,000!
WOOT WOOT! How did that happen?! I'm going to have to think up some ridic-licious candy to give away at 100,000! It's going to be good, so stay tuned!
But for now... onto the post for today!
As you see by my release button pic (again, sorry for those who are tired of it!) The PMS release for August is just a few short days away! There is still time to be entered in the drawing to win the entire release, you just have to post that picture on your blog and let me know that you did it!
Todays sneak peeks are of the set Home Matters.
This set was released as a digi before, but there were so many rubber die hards asking for it to be RUBBER, so now it is!!!
This set is WAY fun. it's the perfect addition to The Cottage and some other fun stamps PMS has. My card for today sticks to just the set though.
I made an easel card using the doghouse image and matching sentiment. I love how this card would be a very fun way to tell something you are sorry. They pull out this card and its just this picture of a doghouse. And they think... um... ok? And then they realize after they figure out how it opens, that the sentiment reads "I'm in the doghouse". And in the area that is hidden you can write a little heartfelt note to say you are sorry, but if the recipient wants to put the card out, your apologies are known, but the details not shared. I like that.
For my card today i also used the color challenge from splitcoast. I thought the Red RidingHood color would perfectly work for the dog house. I wasnt positive how the pink and brown would look (especially since i didnt have specifically the blushing bride or early espresso). I ended up really liking the color combo! You can enter this splitcoast challenge HERE. In this challenge, there is always a "dessert" option which is just a little something extra to the challenge. With all the hype of newness and CHA, the dessert option was to try something NEW! Well, this felt ribbon is new! Felt is currently EVERYWHERE and it's a very hot item right now. Whether it's in sheets that can be die cut (OMG, dies are everywhere toooooo!), in ribbon form or in felties (shapes already cut out of felt for you) it's definitely an
IN trend. I havent actually used much felt... in fact i think this may be my first card to use felt!
But i love the look and think it gives something a little extra the recipient wants to touch and oo and ah over! Another thing i saw at CHA (though it's not new) is pop dots. I mean every make n take popped things up! And i LOVED it! I was like, Holy cow thats easy and i need to do that to more of my cards! So this card is mega popped up! Each layer has a layer of foam adhesive to pop it up!
So thats what i have for ya today!
