LPS Preview - {Katie Caroler}

Welcome to {Little Paper Shop} Monday!!! It's a busy day today, we have a challenge, a prize, new designers, and an October release preview. WHEW!!

First off, we are SO excited to announce a new Design Team member!
Ann Kranitz, was our guest designer for the last three months, and we love her so much we had to have her stay!! So welcome ANN! With Ann's guest term up it was time for a new guest designer too; meet Pam Varnell! She'll be with us the next three months. A BIG LPS welcome to Pam!

On to the nitty gritty - today's challenge is extra special! It's a sketch (yay, my favorite!), so we are challenging you to play along with LPSC35, AND we are also previewing the first new stamp that will be released on Saturday October 3rd!! Wow! Yeah, it is going to be a busy week around here so stay tuned.

For today, there are TWO ways to win this lil' sweetheart {Katie Caroler}. If you enter the sketch challenge and leave a comment and link on the
Little Paper Shop store blog by October 5th, you'll get one entry. And as always, the generous Julia gives away one set JUST for commenting on the preview post on the store blog, so get over there right away!

Last thing - if you haven't yet, be sure to join us on our
new forum site! Lots of great ladies, fabulous LPS inspiration, and free exclusive LPS digis!!

ONWARD! Here is the sketch this week:

And here is my card:

I started off by stamping Katie in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, masking her off and adding the fence. I colored her with Copic markers and did some highlighting with the Ranger white gel pen when all the coloring was done. I used Classic Oval Nestabilities to cut and mat the main image. The snow on the fence was done with white Liquid Pearls and the snow by her feet was done with Frosted Lace Stickles. I added a red Kaisercraft Rhinestone inside each scallop (tedious!).

I think it's a great sketch this week so I hope you will be inspired to play along! You can check out the store blog and the rest of the DT for more fabulous cards.

I'll see you back here tomorrow with the HUGE September release from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! You know you don't want to miss that one!
