New Alota PCP Challenge with new image and a STAMPAVIE Preview of Tina Wenke!!!

Lots to show again today!!! Oh I am so excited! Everyone is coming out with new stamps! OH if only I can figure out how to give up sleep and color all night!!

First I need to let you know that there is a new Alota Rubber Stamps PCP Challenge starting up today - I really do hope that you will take a moment to join in cuz this is "my" challenge, I am the host - so please make me look good and add to the challenge and you might even win a prize!

My Challenge is a Red - White and Blue challenge. All you need to do is make a red, white and blue card with an Alota Rubber Stamps image. Simple! Well this was perfect timing for the new Alota Bug Stamp!!!
This is "OUR HEROS" and yes... the bugs have joined the forces! OH the fun I had coloring this one. And to be honest - Hubby really got involved as well - I had to make sure the colors were correct on the uniforms, shades had to be right! Example... I thought the sailors "knot" would be "pretty" if it was red... oh my that was NOT right - so I had to change it to the black to be correct. LOL I guess he is right - this is our armed forces here so I shouldn't take creative license here. All colored with my Copics, I doodled the edge and then stacked it on a stars pattern paper. NO name on the back of this, don't even know where it came from. But that is ok, cuz it is perfect for my card! A red mat, on a white card stock base. I used Stampin Up punch to run a red ribbon through the sides of the image. I kept looking at this thinking it needed more. But the more I looked at it the more I decided that the image was so large and so wonderful on its own... I liked it just like this!

I do hope that you will join in on the Alota PCP Challenge - :0)


Now a Pre-view of a brand new line of stamps from Stampavie!!! I would like you to meet Wedding Squirrels by Tina Wenke!! Is this just the cutest little wedding couple you have ever seen? This entire collection is so adorable - you really are gonna have to have all of them - really take a look at them HERE See told you.. you want them all don't you!! Well they will be in stores late July.. so make sure to ask your LSS to order them, I don't think the first shipment is going to last very long at all!

I colored the happy couple in their little shell car with my copics and with chalks - high lighted with a white gel pen.

For my Card I used DCWV Garden party collection - such beautiful papers! I used that same Stampin up ribbon punch to run a matching satin ribbon through the image, I inked the edges of all the papers. And then went through my box of flowers... and picked four that matched the papers - jewelry spacers and mini brads with Martha Stewart Frond punch leaves all stacked in the corner. Three buttons in the top corner in the same shades. And the sentiment is one of my Cloud 9 epoxy stickers on white card stock inked as well.

So lots of new coming ... better get your check books ready :0) ...

Have a wonderful Wednesday - me... I have new stamps to play with... where do you think I want to be?

HUGS and-
