Welcome to the second day of our previews of the 5 new sets releasing here on Sunday!!! Did you see the DT creations yesterday! They were fabulous!! Check the ladies out again today...they have lots more inspiration!!!
We'll be releasing out new sets here on Sunday at 7.00pm my time!! Pop back tomorrow for more eye candy from the girls and I.
Today I feel like a competition, random of course, nothing too strenuous, it is friday...let's see...oh yes, I'm curious about which up-coming set folks like most so far from the samples we have shown...lol, so pop your comment at the end of this blog post to be in with a chance of winning. One comment per person please, ta. Make sure you leave some sort of contact details so's we can get in touch if you win...One random winner will get 3 new sets of their choice!!!! The winner may pick for the new sets on Sunday or the sets already released!! Have fun!
My first item today features my wee dude! No, really it does. The standard rainy day activity in my house is drawing, all my wee folk like to draw, but since wee dude is so small, we have to help him.
He always asks us to draw pictures of him in cars and spaceships, and that was where the idea for this set came from. Half Pint Heroes features a number of vehicles into which you can stamp a head which roughly corresponds with the little chap of your choice...there are 7 different little due head stamps, the one you see above is the one that looks like my little dude! lol! Yup, he does have orange hair!
See the dinky orange trees? that's a wee peep at another set, Teeny Trees, also releasing Sunday, you might have spotted it yesterday on the DT blogs. OOh and this card is a 6x4 size, so's you can get an idea of the scale of the wee car.
It seemed appropriate to do this set in a hand-drawn style, my little guy loves that I can stamp a 'Ruari' into a 'sumbarine' a 'wocket' and a 'car'!! it's such a fun stamp set to just play with aside from the card making opportunities.
A feature of this set is the extra 'porthole window' stamp which I designed so as to allow us to add portholes and windows to paper boats and paper aeroplanes, another rainy day favourite in our house. Check out this wee boat below, wouldn't this make a fabby party table decoration, filled with jelly beans?
It would be so easy to make a boat for each party guest and stamp their wee faces into some portholes and stick them to their boats!! What fun!! Add their names to the flag and you have some very snappy place settings.
I used a piece of 12x12 patterned paper (my minds eye, I think) which I trimmed to 12x10 and folded to make a boat, couldn't be easier.
And nope I can't leave the nutcrackers alone...perfect for making yourself some fancy tree ornaments. This one is so simple. Spellbinders fancy tag, trimmed out 6 times, each folded in half and stack back to back to get the windmill piece at the top. Then trim out out stamped and coloured nutcracker with a large labels 4 dies template (#S4-190). Cut another labels 4 shape out of plain card and then cut the centre out of it with a Spellbinders labels 6 die (#S4-230). You will be left with two little decorative bits that you can sponge and stick directly back onto the labels 4 nutcracker shapes, so simple!
I made two nutcracker panels in this way and stuck them back to back, a bit of string threaded between them first. Add beads and stars to complete your dangly decoration.
The idea is that the wee windmill bit at the top catches any breeze and turns the ornament so that you see the other side. It's probably more decorative than functional tho'!
I stamped my nutcrackers in black versafine and clear embossed before colouring with copics. Sponged everything well with Antique linen distress ink.
