Twinkling Tuesday: You gotta kiss a few frogs…

…well, you know the rest!

Before i get to my Twinkling Tuesday card, though, I want to remind you all that TODAY IS THE LITTLE PAPER SHOP RELEASE Day!!! You can now order {Bound by the Heart} and {Blessings}. To see the stamps and for more info, visit the Little Paper Shop’s blog. There is a full reveal of the set as well as a special announcement so check us OUT!
Also in exciting Little Paper Shop news, we welcome LORI TURNER as our March/April Guest Designer! Yay! Welcome Lori! You can read more about that at the LPS Blog, too and be sure to visit Lori’s Blog!

Lots going on today, for sure! Today is also Twinkling Tuesday and we have a very special “Temporary Twinkie” Guest Challenger with us today, Ava Grace. Ava is Taylor’s DD and she challenged us to QUITE the color combo:

WOWZA! I wasn’t sure WHAT I was going to do w/ this one, as I’m not very partial to green. Well, ok, not THIS shade of green, LOL! I didn’t even have it to be quite honest, so my good friend (and SU extraordinaire) Darla helped me out with that one! I mean, I had to deliver, as a VERY cute three year old is relying on me :) This was great, Ava Grace! I think we all can use a little forcing to “think out of the box” every now and again, right? Speaking of boxes, check out this cute little graphic that Jen drew…and in the spirit of St. Patty’s Day! Cute!

My son couldn’t have been happier when I pulled out my Rachelle Anne Miller Frog stamp from Stampavie! Aren’t these little guys INSANELY cute?! I LOVE them! I have been waiting and wanting to use this stamp for SOME time and so it definitely paid off, as today was the day!

After coloring them in with my Copics, I added just a bit of sparkle to the flowers and heart and then put this card together using the Roses on Paper sketch from last week. Unfortunately, I was a BIT too late to enter, but my sweet bloggin’ friend Rosette drew this sketch and I LOVE it! I will definitely be using it again!
Well, enjoy your Tuesday and be sure to take time to visit the TT blog as Kimmie is our featured stamper this week! You can also check out the rest of the wonderful “Twinklette’s” blogs today too…they are:

LPS Preview: {Blessings}

Hello everyone,
Whew! I am still reeling from the weekend of releases and all the fun! It doesn’t stop there though, because today it’s Little Paper Shop Monday, and I have another GORGEOUS new stamp set to preview for you today.

It’s the brand new {Blessings} set and it’s just so pretty! I absolutely love the flourished cross and wait until you see the sentiments in this set. It’s being released in perfect time for Easter, but it definitely is a more versatile set than JUST Easter. There are 5 additional sentiments besides the Easter sentiment that are so great to be used ALL YEAR LONG!

Julia has really outdone herself with this set and it’s like nothing we’ve seen before at The Little Paper Shop so I’m really excited about it!

Want a chance to WIN this set? Head on over to the LPS blog and leave a comment and your name could be drawn for this gorgeous new set! {Blessings} will be released tomorrow, Tuesday, along with {Bound by the Heart} at the Little Paper Shop’s website.

See you back tomorrow!

LPS Preview: {Bound by the Heart}

Hey all!

Today is the first of two preview days for the two BEAUTIFUL new releases at The Little Paper Shop!

In addition, our monthly DT challenge is always the 15th of the month…this is basically just a fun little challenge that the LPSDT gals issue to each other. This month, it was Mel’s turn, and she issued us a challenge to “Stitch it up!” We could either sew, stitch, or Faux sew on our cards.

This month, since the 15th marks our first preview day, we would LOVE you guys to play along! Be sure to check out the LPS BLOG today for details! You could WIN a FREE stamp set, so see you there!

My sample card for our new set, {Bound by the Heart}, uses faux stitching. A few weeks ago, my friend Jami was the featured stamper on SCS. I was so excited for her, but my week was SO crazy busy that I didn’t get to play along with the challenge to CASE one of her cards, so I decided I still wanted to pay tribute to this AWESOME honor by using her card’s layout for my card today. You can check out Jami’s card HERE. Congrats again, Jami….better late than never right? LOL!!!
Well, I hope you guys enjoy our first of two preview days today. Be sure to check back for another post today…it’s a BUSY Sunday today on my blog! See you guys soon, and stay tuned tomorrow for another LPS preview, too!

Jessica :)
