Day 2 of January Krafty Peeks!!

Well, it's day 2 of the Sneaky Peeks for Kraftin' Kimmie's January Release. Today we are showcasing Steven Leary's images. They are all so cute!!

For my first card, I used Baby Bubble Bath. I found some Lime Rickey papers that I thought would work because of the ducky in the image. I'm not sure if any of the birds on the paper are ducks, but let's pretend anyway. For my card base, I used Wild Wasabi. I layered an orange piece of the Lime Ricky to mat my birdie layer on, put another design from the same papers down the right side, matting it onto some Pumpkin Pie cardstock. For my image, I used my Copics and I put some Stardust Stickles on the bubbles, which you probably can't see in the picture. I matted the image onto some Daffodil Delight cardstock, then popped it up. The sentiment is one from Kraftin' Kimmie's Mermaid Sentiments. I used the Daffodil Delight for it and backed it onto a piece of Pumpkin Pie punched out with my Oval Punch. Again, you can't see it, but I coated some half pearls with Stardust Stickles to match the bubbles.

For my second card, I used Special Delivery, another of Steven's new release images. This is perfect as I need a card for the upcoming arrival of a baby boy. I coloured the image with my faithful Copics, cut it out using one of my Labels Nesties and used some Nana's Nursery Baby Boy papers to mat it onto using the next larger size of Nesties. I popped it up on some more of the N. Nursery papers, then matted it onto some Morning Marigold cardstock, which was glued onto a card base of Baja Breeze. I added the sentiment 'Happy New Baby', which comes with another of the new Steven Leary images. I stamped it on a blue piece of the N. Nursery papers, added 3 pale green button brads, then tied some Baja Breeze ribbon vertically next to the buttons.

Well, that's me for today. Tomorrow I'll be back along with the rest of the Krafty Girls to show you some of Annie's gorgeous designs. They are all so beautiful and great fun to colour. Then on Sunday, we hope you will all check in to see the last lot of cards and also to take part in our fun Krafty Hop. Some lucky ladies will win some of the new release of stamps. That can't be bad, can it?
