October LPS Sneak Peek #5

If you like sentiments...and birthday sentiments at that, this is the set for you! It's called Make a Wish and it's by Little Paper Shop being released on October 14th. It's a large set measuring 4x6 and contains 10 sentiments! I love love love this font, I don't think I can get enough of it...good thing Julia loves it too!

I started by picking out my designer paper, I knew I wanted something bright and cheery, cuz who wants a drab birthday card!!! I knew I wanted to use wonderful wings...I've been cleaning out my stamp stack (a listing of sale items soon to come!) and I saw this set that I just absolutely love and seldome use...I knew it would be perfect for this birthday greetings set! So I inked the butterfly in Kiwi Kiss ink and then using my chocolate chip marker inked up some areas that i wasnted to be brown, I then breathed on it to help blend the colors and stamped it on shimmery white cardstock...I wish you could see this in real like...the shimmer is just amazing! I then used an aqua painter and some tangerine tango classic ink refil colored the butterfly ever so gently and then went in and added more hughlights.

The last thing to do to this butterfly before cutting was to stamp the sentiment. I choose "Make a Wish" because it just fit so perfectly within the butterfly. I saw the little tutorial on SCS Wednesday for the scallop medalion and I just had to try it...good thing I had a piece of paper that measured to the perfect size! I punched it out and added little white dots and then some eyelets...although once I added everyhing you can hardly see the medalion! ohh well such is life I guess!


So that's my card! What do you think? I love these colors!!! Now go and check out the Little Paper Shop Blog to see what all the lovely Divas have created! They do amazing work!!!

Stunning card! This is not only superdeeduperdee pretty, but also revolutionarily inspiring. I can't believe I've never stamped a sentiment on an image!?! It looks so great. Especially on that butterfly. Thanks for the fab inspiration! :O)
