ATS April Release Sneak Peeks - Day 1!!

Tuesday, April 3, 2012

Good Morning sweet peeps!

It's already April and it's time again for some All That Scraps sneak peeks!! Are you ready for some?! I hope so! Today, the ATS design team and I have a couple of SUPER SWEET stamp sets to share with you....AND some dies!! Let's get on with it, shall we??

This is the newest Swiss Pixie on the block - Umbrella Lula! I wish I looked as cute as this in my rain gear, but unfortunately, I look like a big, plastic monster! LOL

To make this card, I especially bought this 6x6 paper pad from AC Moore because of the umbrellas! And I couldn't resist the color combo either - it's one of my favorites! For the layout, I hounded Jen for this week's Deconstructing Sketch #45 (I was a wee bit impatient, but she was a good sport about it!) for my layout and lucky for me, it was perfect for this stamp! Phew! I paired the paper with some kraft and natural colored cardstock for matting. I finally found the perfect sketch to use a paper doily on! I softy sponged the edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink and layered it under the circle and vertical banner panels. Each panel had it's edges sponged with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, except the circle panel, which was sponged with Antique Linen again. Lula was colored with my SU reinkers and pads, then I paper pieced her umbrella with some polka dot paper from the Cosmo Cricket collection.

The circle logo is from another set being released this week, called Umbrella Logos. I {heart} those logos! I cut it out with the matching CC Designs circle die. That {hugs} sentiment is from Amy Rysavy's new stamp set So Wordy. I love the fonts she used on this set! If you look really closely, you might be able to see parts of a mini ticket stamp on either side of the circle panel. Do you see it? It's yet another stamp from the Umbrella Logo's set!

Here's a peek at the inside of the card. See those umbrellas? They're another stamp from the Umbrella Logo's set and the best part.....there's a coordinating umbrella die!! I kept my umbrella's really simple by stamping them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink onto some natural colored cardstock for this card. The sentiment is also from the Umbrella Logo's set! Man, that set has a lot of stamps! lol I think I used a total of 7 stamps on this card! Not bad at all!

If you want to see what the other images are in the set, then head on over to the ATS blog! You'll see cards from the rest of the design team AND if you leave your name in the InLinz at the bottom of the post, then you have a chance to win yourself the set! Just by leaving your name! How easy is that?!

I have another sneak peek for you tomorrow, so I'll see you then! Thanks for stopping by!
