PCS New Rubber & Digi Release!!

Happy Thursday, y'all! Hope everyone is staying warm and toasty today! I saw that the NE is supposed to get lots more snow. My in-laws outside of Philly are expecting about 18 more inches!! Too much of the white stuff for me. It is cold here in FL again, too. But, at least Parker's soccer practice was cancelled last night - it was 50 degrees and pouring. I did not feel like coaching a bunch of 6 yr olds in that mess!

Today, Pink Cat Studio is releasing new Rubber Stamps as well as new digi's!! You can shop for the new Rubber Stamps here and the new Digi's here. Lily just loves to dress up and she has some super cute outfits! My first project uses the Lily Butterfly image. I thought the sentiment was screaming for some chocolate kisses, so Lily is sending you chocolate butterfly kisses!

I picked up a few of these acetate boxes at my LSS last year. They are perfect for a small treat for a teacher, etc. I pulled out some Basic Grey Lily Kate DP for this set. Pink Pirouette pairs nicely with these papers. I added some leaves (MS & EK Success punches), some primas and some bling to embellish this card. I cannot forget all of the Stickles I used on her wings! Gotta have shimmer when you are talking about butterflies! I colored Lily with Copics and cut her out. I popped her up with some 3-D foam tape over the oval. It is hard to tell, but I airbrushed the oval with some RV000. Here is a close-up of the treat. I used the MS Doily Lace border punch to make a belly band for the box. For the top, I added some primas, leaves and bling to tie it together with the card.

Here are the copics I used for this card:
For card #2, Lily is dressed as a bumble bee. I could not resist making another shaker card for this one! Ask my former neighbor, Bev, I have always loved making shaker cards. I have not been her neighbor for almost 6 yrs and I made them back then too! Miss you Bev! This is another shape of shaker card offered by Impression Obsession. I filled it with some micro beads, yellow & clear seed beads and some yellow and black flowers I punched. I used Yo Yo Yellow, Whisper White (for layering only - I only color on either PTI or Gina K paper), and some PTI polka dot DP. I airbrushed the little yellow flower since I did not have the right shade and layered it on a white flower and added a black brad to the center. A card from me isn't complete if it doesn't have some fern leaves! LOL! The flourish is a QK die. Isn't that such a sweet sentiment?
Here is close-up of this cutie! I just love her bee-hive hair do! I am branching out and trying to make more of my girls brunettes. I am a blonde and I think it is natural to go with what ya know, but I am stretching my wings! :)

Here are the copics used for this card:

My final card has Lily as a LadyBug! Yes, I know I have used lots of polka dots tonight! I just could not help myself with these cute images! Melissa has all of these wonderful free sentiments available here. I used some Pure Poppy, black, Whisper White and some more polka dot DP from PTI for this card. The lacy border punch is by MS. I layered Lily on top of a panel that was embossed with a CB folder.I cut Lily out to give this card lots of dimension. Her antennae were too delicate to cut around, so I cut them off and added some wire in their place. I only had silver wire handy, so I colored it with a Black 100 Copic marker. I cut the red balls out and stuck them on with a glue dot. I added Stickles to all of her black polka dots and some white gel pen to her cheeks.

Here are the Copics I used:

Here is a picture of everything being released, so pop on over to her shop and check them out along with the other DT members' blogs (addy's on the right hand side)

Gotta run! Have a great day! ~Tori
