March CDS Sneak Peeks - Day 3

The set Jesus Paid It All is a perfect reminder of the reason Christ came from Heaven to earth. He died for our sins - but then rose again! For the first card I embossed the cross image with clear embossing powder and then used another treasure - my pastels - to give the look of a sunset. Here's the entire card...

My second card is just a quick thank you note made with the flower and a sentiment in the set. I cut the flower so that it wasn't centered in the die on purpose, to balance the design a little more. My stash treasure on this card is a piece of old SU dp. It worked perfectly!

The next card is one of my favorites! It's from a set called Snail Mail...

Isn't he adorable?? I paper pieced his little mail bag and his shell and colored the rest of him with Copics. See my little micro brads? Clear Dollar sells them for $1.00 a bag and they are *so cool*!! I'm saving my pennies to buy more!!!!

And now we have Shoe Fly. LOL! Don't you just love his name? He looks like he's going on a hike! See more micro brads?? Stash treasure... some K&Co dp that I couldn't figure out a project for. TaDa!

AND... last set for today... the Pippin Mouse Family by Wendy Hall. I paper pieced the little cupcake wrapper and then colored the mouse and cupcake with copics. After I had my mouse all cut out, I used a hobby blade and cut - very carefully - around his hand, so he could hold the cupcake. The sentiment is from an older CDS set called Woodland Critters . I love that font and use that sentiment on a lot of my birthday cards!
The next card uses the Pippin Mouse set again, but this time I've paired it with a new release single sentiment stamp... "Swinging by..."

There you have it! I have one more day to share sneak peeks and then you can start shopping! Yay!!

Wendy said...

Fabulous cards Tricia!! Luvin the Pippins, they look wonderful!!

Linda Borneman said...! You need to come up for some air, girlfriend! LOL You have been one busy camper!

Would you look at the "Jesus Paid It All"...and that very creative pastel sunrise! Bee-u-tee-ful! I love this card and the pretty gold twine around the ribbon...perfect...just like Jesus!

Your Geranium card is stunning, Tricia! Great, interesting anc creative layout, too. Very inspiring! Love the lace border edge, the center patterned panel with the sentiment sideways and the beautifully colored geraniums, too.

Your "Snail Mail" card is way cute! Love the patterned paper paper piecing on his shell...very designer! LOL

Great coloring on your "Shoe Fly" card..and those mini brads are the perfect embellie.

Both Pippin Mouse cards are adorable! Love the paper pieced cupcake wrapper...great job cutting around his hand! Whew! That must've been a chore! The Pippin swinging mouse is just so 'em both!
