I'm SUPER EXCITED to be included in the Krafty Peeks this month as a brand new Krafty Guest! YAY!!!

For my project, I chose the cute little baby carriage and decided to go with a nice clean and simple look. I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir marker colours GT2 and 3, black Copic marker, and a white paint pen for the highlights on the handle and wheels. Then I cut out the carriage and set it aside.



I embossed and die cut the edge of the white cardstock to get the scalloped edge, then added a touch of colour with Ranger's Liquid Pearls in the Mermaid colour. The white card stock is then matted on a piece of black and enhanced with a satin ribbon. The top seemed a little bare, so I added some "stitching" with a black pigment liner from Staedtler. And that's when everything went wrong... I smeared ink across the whole top section of the card! ARGH! So now what? Well, X-acto knife to the rescue... VERY carefully I sliced just below the ribbon and removed the top part of the card. Then I cut a new piece and slid it into the spot after re-stamping the lovely "Babies are Heaven Sent" sentiment in Memento Ink and re-doing the faux stitching. WHEW! I can barely tell!  And here's the final project! 


For the next several days, you'll get to see all the gorgeous stamps sets and inspirational creations from the design team; and then, Sunday morning at 11am EST, you do NOT want to miss the LIVE Online Release Party!!!!!!! That's where Kimmie will be releasing all THREE of the new clear stamp sets! There will be lots of fabulous creations, krafty fun and did I mention PRIZES?! SQUEEEEEEEE!

Tune in tomorrow for the next Krafty Peek!

    1. Thanks so much, Cindy!I figured if there's a baby shower where I don't know whether it's a boy or girl, this will come in handy :)

    1. Thanks, Diana! I have the whole set of SN Markers along with about 50 duplicates. I've recently started collecting Copics but only have about a quarter of them. Both are great markers, although I'm finding it easier to colour with the Copics personally. I still use my Spectums though :)
