We are celebrating the first year of Elizabeth's characters, the Tinytwinies™, the first year of Softpencil Studios relaunching and Elizabeth's 10th anniversary as a professional artist. We're also celebrating the opening of Elizabeth's new shop where all of her products are available: digi-stamps, clear stamps, stickers, rub-ons, kits for card making, scrapbooking and paper crafting - and more products coming soon!
There are several prizes along the way:
• Elizabeth will be choosing a random winner (through random.org) from the players who complete the blog hop - the winner will receive a gift certificate for $15 to the Softpencil shop... and a surprise!
• All the players who participate by leaving their comments on each blog will receive a free digi-stamp of their choice. Yes! Only leave a comment on each blog and win a digi-stamp! Write to Elizabeth at email@example.com to let me know you commented on all the blogs.
• And there is a "mystery blog" so all the girls who leave a comment on that blog will be entered on a drawing to win a digi-stamp... and a little surprise too!
So be sure to leave a comment at each stop and leave 2 comments back at the Softpencil Blog!
Now, onto my projects. For this hop I made two cards - one using Easter Sunny, the other using adorable Lilly.
I colored Easter Sunny with Prismacolor colored pencils and cut it out and embossed it with my Scalloped Squares Nestabilities and my Cuttlebug. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up, "Spring Fling". The words had little stars in it, but I didn't care for them so I put yellow flower brads over them :-)
I colored Lilly with Prismacolor colored pencils and used Circle Nestabilities and my Cuttlebug to cut her out. For the background I just layered three papers - I couldn't decide which color to go with so I used them all! The flowers (SU "Close as a Memory") are stamped using SU craft ink in white and then embossed with white powder. On Lilly, I added glitter to her bow, a brad for the center of her flower, and black glossy accents on her buttons and shoes. Below is a close-up to try and show the details on her :-)
That's all I have for today! Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered into the drawing!
