Hi there 🙂 Such an exciting day, as Mitzi has a fabulous new release that is to die for!!! The girls have really outdone themselves for the showcase post this time (ok…..EVERY time!!) I was honored to help out with the showcase this time, and had so much fun working with these amazing new releases, available HERE on Etsy, and HERE in the digi shop 🙂
I started out coloring the beautiful Aries image…..I did some Googling on this sign and came up with the sepia/red color combo that I used, as that seems to be a very “Aries” palette 🙂 I decided on a round easel card for this image, as the shape seemed to call for a round card 🙂 After coloring it with Copics, and adding some gold touches with both gel pen and embossing powders, I assembled the card, using red roses, a shimmery bow and some gold beads as embellishments. The easel stopper is a stamped sentiment that I cut out in a strip and popped up. The finishing touch was some gold stars, arranged in the Aries constellation pattern.
My next project is a card featuring the adorable Tulip Sprite. I colored her up with my Copics, using a pretty spring color palette. I can’t be the only one that is SO ready for spring!!!! I die cut the image out, and matted it with another die cut that coordinated with the background paper. This background paper has been in my stash for a while….it is actually sign paper that we used in a store I used to work at!!!! I added a white picket fence and a die cut sentiment, before finishing this card off with some pearl accents 🙂
The next image that I worked with is the sweet Phlox Sprite. I kept her outfit very neutral, so the vibrant purple and green of the blossoms really popped. I kept the design for this little sweetie’s card very CAS, only adding a stamped sentiment and some coordinating sequins.
For the last of the new releases….the cute little Mouse Sprite, I let my somewhat warped sense of humor take the reign. I colored the little guy with my Copics, then fussy cut him out. I made a door hanger to display this cutie….one that warns a person of what may be waiting on the other side of the door!!! I made up the message on my computer, and die cut the bottom to look like cheese, before gluing the Mouse Sprite on 🙂
As is often the case, Mitzi is offering a special gift with purchase with this new release!!! The generous, and incredibly adorable, gift this time is Koala Sprite. I think I may have squealed a bit when I saw this sweet Sprite <3 I colored this little family up, then fussy cut the image out. I attached them to a gift card holder…..with the die cut hearts and sweet stamped sentiment, it could be a perfect holder for a Valentine’s gift for that person that doesn’t like candy or flowers!
I hope you like my contribution to the new release showcase 🙂 I’d love to see what you come up with using any of these images!!! Here are the applicable codes that you can use 🙂
