Release Day for Claudia & Company!


Before I get into all the fabulous releases I just wanted to give myself a little toot for making Fab 5 over at 2 Sketches 4 You. Eek!!! It was my Lollipop card I made for Sandra's birthday.

Okay now to get back on track. It is release day over at Die Cuts R Us and have we got a treat for you! Miss LoRi has created her signature Ella the Elphant and along with her side kick Sammy.  Claudia has created a lovely Quinceanera/Birthday Princess set and a vertical Sentiment set called So Random Sentiments. The DT has created some awesome inspiration for you. 

My first card uses the Birthday Princess from the Quinceanera/Birthday Princess set. I paper pieced her dress and paired her with some papers from my scraps. I used and EK success punch for the white border and added some pearls to the center of the flowers. I colored this lovely up copics. I also used Sweet Sunday Sketch #71 for the layout.
My second card uses LoRi's Ella Elephant and one of the vertical sentiments. I colored Ella with copics(R81, R83, R85 for the pink and some chaulk for the cheeks). I used my white Jelly Roll pen to add white dots to the bows on Ella. I paired her with some Basic Grey and round two corners with a corner punch.

My last card uses Sammy Elephant. Isn't he sweet? I colored Sammy with copics and again used a little chaulk for the cheeks. I paired him with some October Afternoon paper and I used another sentiment from Random Sentiments.

Aren't these fabulous! There are so many uses for these and I bet the rest of the DT has some amazing inspiration for you. You'll want to be sure to comment on every blog because a gift certificate to Die Cuts R Us will be given away. How cool is that? You next stop is the fabulous LISA. In case you get lost here is the entire hop list...
