C.C. Designs Sneak Peek!

C.C. Designs is releasing two new Little Bit Kits: Love Ya Much and Love Ya Lots. Let me just tell you -- if you loved Lucky and Lulu, you'll flip for these sets! Along with that adorable dog and cat there are a bunny, two lovebirds, a lion, and a pig, plus some sweet sentiments! The sets will be available at All That Scraps on January 4. I made this card with the lovebirds from Love Ya Much. I thought this piece of BasicGrey Romani paper would be perfect with the birds, so I built the card around it. I tried to channel the spirit of Julia Stainton on this one -- she does shabby chic so beautifully!!! :)


To make the card base, I machine stitched a border around the paper, then I distressed the edge by hand. The image was stamped in Basic Black ink and colored with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS. After I finished coloring, I traced over the image lines with a Sakura clear glaze pen to give them a little more definition. I sponged Bashful Blue ink around the vanilla circle and the card base. The scalloped circle was punched from more Romani paper, then I pierced the scallops. To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment and added a Prima flower and some May Arts ivory dotted ribbon. I love the way it turned out -- it's sweet, simple and feminine!

I have to admit, I'm glad to be doing something other than Christmas cards! I really like the spring-like look of this card -- it would be great for Valentine's Day or for any time you need a romantic card! I'll have more sneak peeks for you over the next few days, so please come back for more! Thanks for visiting today! :)
