Two Sneak Peeks!

Today I want to share two sneak peeks with you - one from a brand new stamp company! Both of these cards were inspired by today's SCS Inspiration Challenge 197.

My Rockin' Frog is from Totally Stampalicious, a new company owned by my friend, Joycelyn Turner, and her friend, Rebecca Kuhne. Joy asked several of us to help her in her company launch and release, and I am happy to do that! This set, along with three others, will be available for purchase on September 15th.

I chose this tye-dyed guitar tee for my inspiration. I used alcohol, felt, and two reinkers to make the Polished Stone background for my frog. I should have added MUCH more Mellow Moss!

My son turns 21 in November and I made this card for him. Can you see why?

Please check out the blogs and galleries of the other talented stampers who are helping launch Totally Stampalicious over the next few days. They have some great designs to share with you!

My next project is a one-panel card, with the ghost image from Silly Monsters, a new September 16 release by Chicken Girl Design Stamps, exclusively available at i {heart} papers. I wanted to show a close-up of this one so you could see the textured paper and the ribbon loops better:

I chose this cute kids' outfit: Boo Lettuce Edge Tee and Spin Art Pants for my inspiration for this Halloween card.

Thanks for stopping by today to see these peeks!
