LAD Sneaks begin

I am so excited to be able to share THREE sneaks today. The first sneak is showcasing two new goodies that will be released on Saturday.

This card uses "Garden Inspiration" and digital patterned paper. I LOVE this paper!! The fun thing about digital paper is that you can play with it on your editing software. All printers will print it a little bit different. I printed the designs that come in this package and they are alot lighter than what you see here. I went back in a clicked "exposure" and it came out this richer color.
I colored the flowers with Copic markers, cut them out and layered them on top of the "stem" design (digital) to give the effect of being on stems. The sentiment is also in this set.
This next card is made with probably my all time favorite of the newly released (although I love them all and it's hard to pick just ONE favorite) called "Bless This Nest". I already had this card made, but it also fits this week's sketch challenge on Lizze Anne Designs here.I have so many ideas for this set and I can't wait to be able to share them all.
I love these colors for birds. I also have a project to share later where I colored this bird a bright yellow (I know..*gasp* I used yellow LOL). This set is so versatile as you can get so many looks with it.
The papers I used are Scenic Route (thin twig looking strip), Basic Grey's Archaic Ancient (blue/brown dot) and Deja Views Timeless Collection Circle Dots.

I always admire Debbie Olson's cards where she using the SU! punch like I used above. Of course I admire ALL she does. Ü

Be sure to click on the DT under Lizzie Anne Designs on the right to see what the other members created. I can't wait to go look too.

I'll be back tomorrow with more sneaks.

  2. Fantastic projects Debbie! I love how you did the flowers ~ so bright and cheery! Lovely job!

  3. Both of these are great and I love the one with the punch as well!

  8. Great cards Debbie! I love them both, but I really like the bird one. One of my fav things to do is mix print papers/cardstocks from different companies and you did an AWESOME job of it on this card.
