Can you wait? I sure cant! Everyday this week there will be new sneaks up on the company blog!
This starts today and you're first way to win is there too... so CHECK IT OUT!
Today's peeks are of the new Makeup Card Kit! I am in LOVE with this card kit! This kit has been in the works for a loooong time (at least it feels like a looooong time) and I have a lot of sentimental attachment to it as well. Aside from the fact that i do sometimes long to have a little girl, and like to live vicariously thru my friends who DO... do you remember one of my cards from the last release where i told you my friend was moving away? Well this kit was named for her daughter. Rachel was one of my first friends i met in South Carolina and she is my all-time enabler! She pushed me to start a craft blog. And she is the one who pushed me the hardest to start me own stamp company. She would send me links to all kinds of places.... here's a place that will press your rubber, here's a place that will engrave your plates. Everyday... why dont you just DO it already? So finally i did!
Then she's the one that says... have a baby, we want to play with a baby! And when i did get pregnant... she was pregnant just a month after! SO we even carried babies in our bellies together! Only SHE is the one with the little girl! HAHAHAHAHAH!
Little Miss Arelia love's her "pretties". Bags... jewelry.... clothes... she is a girlie girl! So girlie that Rachel has started her own jewelry line. You really should check it out!
Ok, sorry, i have gotten off track! Here is my card!
Every bit of this card (minus the tools, inks and liquid pearls) is from this kit!
The fabric paper may just be my favorite! No wait... the rose ribbon.... no the stamps.... no the paper... no.... yeah i cant make up my mind. Good thing i dont have a little girl... can you imagine me trying to get her ready in the morning?!
Here's a close up detail view of some things you may have questions about. You get 12 inches of "rose ribbon" made by American Crafts. You may have seen ribbon like this, they are all the rage! And 12 inches is a perfect amount for you to play around with! Here i've just used a single rosette from the ribbon, but it's super fun using a strip as well! You can also see the fabric paper a little better in the photo. Fabric paper is super easy to run thru your die cutting machine or use punches on. I ran my fingernail along the edges to give it a more worn feel and also inked the edges in distress ink. That brad is also in the kit along with 3 other colors that perfectly coordinate with the paper for a little extra bling!
Well i wont go on and on about what all is IN the kit and not on my card! You can see all of that on the company blog today! And dont forget to check back in for more peekie peeks!!!
Have a wonderful day!!!
