Paper Smooches GDT Week 1

Well the day is FINALLY here.. :) I am so.. SOOOO excited to be Paper Smooches Stamps Guest DT member for the month of August. I have to tell you.. I was a little nervous, thinking what if I don't do these stamps justice.. When I opened the stamps I didn't look at them for like 15 seconds, took a deep breath and FREAKED out with excitement.. The ideas just came to me.. and let me tell you, my mind gets on overload.. so I started writing them down..hehe..
For this cute little card I used 3 different stamp sets.. The new one A little lovin', Chubby Chums, & Sentiment Sampler. I love how these colors just POP off the card.. I used 3 different colors of embossing powder to create the sentiment block, and colored the bunny ears with a pink copic marker.. :) The inspiration came from Lindsay's post HERE.. I love how she used "part" of the stamp.. when I saw this Cheeky little Bunny.. that was it.. :) thanks Lindsay

Wee Memories-4 colors (black, white, green, blue, peach, & Pink)
Welcome Baby... Okay.. I fell in love with these little elephants.. :) When I saw the banana I thought, they just had to be turned into.. LEAVES!! :) then I thought.. I need to make a palm tree.. so I used 4 stamp sets to create this card..

From the A little lovin set-I used the elephants, and the Welcome Baby.. For the leaves and the coconuts I used the banana, and the grape.. Sugar Rush-for the trunk of the tree I used the outline of the drink for the bottom, and the inner line of the drink for the top of the trunk. Spiffy Scooters set-the cloud :) I used copic markers to color in all my images.. Let me know if you have any questions.. :) HUGS
