A Prettie Challenged Preview

Hello stampers! It's preview time already for the upcoming March Paper Pretties release; today is one of my days to showcase a sneak peek! The new stamp sets and digital images will be available to purchase on March 1st. Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team blogs this week for more peeks!

My card today uses one of the new digi stamps, I'm Sorry Cooper. Not quite sure what he's been up to, but I'm sure that whatever it is, my boys will be copying it soon!

I printed Cooper on PTI white and colored with Copic Markers according to this week's challenge over at the Copics Colour Challenge blog (CCC53 - see swatch below). How perfect for this little stinker! I added in some some blue to fit this great new Cafe Mediterranean paper from Die Cuts With A View.

Fairly straightforward on the rest of the project. For the corner element (this is a sketch challenge, info below) I used three of my fun American Crafts Elements buttons - these are solid silver. American Crafts has great embellishment items in a whole slew of colors. I like them a lot, I have some of the glittery buttons too and those have been getting a lot of use. Check out the selection in Susana's store! I thought these were perfect today both because they go along with the color scheme and they are not "too girly", as so many of my stash of goodies seem to be, heehee!

I also used a sketch challenge today, since I love doing them! This is this week's from the Friday Sketchers challenge blog (#90), which I discovered because my talented DT sister Aud from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design is on their DT! Thanks Aud - great ideas!

Also a quickie product news flash, SCACD is carrying some of the new Pink Cat stamps coming out today, and another new product (I have yet to try it but I am intrigued), TA DA Tsukineko PSST Spritz. Hmm... Check them all out here.

That's it for me! You can head over to The Paper Clip when you're through here for more info and inspiration on this upcoming release. See you Saturday with another peek!
