I'm back with a Sneak Peek!

First of all, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, as you spent time with family and friends. We enjoyed the quietness, after having such a busy 3 weeks before the holidays, the rest was much needed.   And now here we are into the beginning of another year.  Did you make any new year resolutions?  I gave up on that a while ago, I would always start out with good intentions just like most and then fall off.

With that being said, I'm back after a month off, and let me tell you it is hard to get back into make cards and posting them.  I struggled with this, pulled out images and papers, and would sit and ponder at doing a card, and then would put it off for another day.  It's just like work, you take a week or two vacation and you find it such a struggle to get back into the groove. I did manage to make 2 cards on the weekend (finally!), which will be posted next week. 

Some good news - Emily over at Stamping Bella is having a release on Friday! Woohoo!! There will be some new Uptown's and the one that I am sharing with you today is called Brett & Brenda. I'm in love with this image, see for yourself.

I kept this fairly simple - didn't want to steal the show from the bride! LOL.  I coloured the image with copics, then cut it out using the smallest die from the Spellbinders Grand Ovals, left the die in place and sponged some Mellow Moss around the edges to co-ordinate with the background paper I picked. I then layered this onto another piece of white c/s cut using Grand Decorative Ovals One

Designer paper is by Fabscraps called Rustic Fly- I wish I would of bought a couple of pieces of this, love the tones of the greens and greys in this.

This image also comes with it's own sentiment - Congratulations, which I cut out using an tag die. I also added some mini pearls to finish it off.

To glitter her dress I covered the whole dress using my quickie glue pen, let it dry for a couple of minutes the poured some Crystal Glitter Ritz - warm highlights, and burnished it in, tapped off the excess and there you have it a smooth looking bridal dress.  You can see the how the glitter looks here:

Don't forget about our challenge over at SCS - you can find the link here and read all about it.  There is $25.00 voucher up for grabs which can be spent at Stamping BellaContest closes Jan 7th. 

Well that abouts does it for me for today.  Have to get ready for work (UGH!)Be sure to check out the other Babes blogs to catch some more sneak peaks.

Thanks for stopping by, have yourself a wonderful day!
