Talking Winter 2010 Sneaky Peeks



It's that time again! It's the first day of Sneaky Peek Week. That means that the New Release is one week away on Tuesday, November 23. Okay, we are starting a day early, but we have so much to show you.

For the last couple of weeks, I've been showing you some adorable designs by our newest artist from Ou Ou Illustration. And today is no different.

Today's design features a sweet little gal dressed appropriately for the upcoming cold weather in the NEW set "Snowflake Girl". What I love about this image is that she is just the right size for coloring and the line weight is just PURRFECT for paper piecing and coloring.
So I had to ink up this little one and do a card. She comes with a large snowflake, hence the title "Snowflake Girl", and I thought it would be perfect to do a transparent card. I'm still working on how to color black hair with my Odorless Mineral Spirits and I'm quite pleased with this little gal.

And at the bottom, I've used one of our new CutUps Dies. Check out Toni, Amy, Sony and Joanne for their take on this cute little gal. And come back tomorrow for another sneaky peek at our new release.

How cute! I always have a hard time thinking how to do the clear cards, but this really helps me "think outside of the box." I think the hair on "Snowflake Girl" looks super!!!! Great job! >^. .^<

She's just beautiful! I think that she'll need to come home to live with me in CO! The snowflakes that comes with her looks gorgeous too (if that is what is stamped on the acetate)!

Talking Sneaky Peek Day Two


When I was growing up in the sixties, we were all aware of being green and being healthy. Living in San Francisco, we took recycling and conservation like a duck to water. I guess there is a little hippie in me, because when there was a resurgence in green living and recycling recently, I got excited that more people were getting involved in living healthy, happier lives. And since Anthony's heart attack it made me really aware of being "Heart Healthy", too.


So when Susan Blanchard did this drawing for me of this Santa, I just had to smile. A green, politically correct Santa, delivering his gifts via wind and Santa power. Good for the environment and good for his heart. Literally. Gotta love it.

Talking Sneaky Peek Day Three



It's Day 3 of Sneaky Peek Week and we are almost halfway through the new release. Today, I am showcasing another stamp design from Laurie Nadeau. This little fellow is from the set, "Like You A Latte". Isn't he adorable? I think that there are not enough boy stamps, so when I saw him, I knew he just had to be made into a stamp.
Around this time of year, there tends to be a lot of small gifts that need to be given. Hostess gifts, gifts at a cookie exchange, gifts for the next door neighbor. And, I always like to "'dress" up a gift card with a box or a little something. Those little gift cards are great, but so dull around the tree.



So I thought that this little guy would be perfect for a little hot chocolate kit. Easy to make with a template from Creations by AR, I fancied it up with my very favorite new CutUps die. Well, my favorite today. It's called "Icing" and it will be one of the new dies available on November 23.


Here's the inside. More of the "Icing" die, some pretty paper and Hot Chocolate and it's good to go.

Ooh, there's a little boy, too?! Too cute!

That box is gorgeous, Alma! It would grab anybody's eye under a Christmas tree...

TFS!

Talking Sneaky Peek Day Four


Before I show you the Sneaky Peek for today, I officially invite you to our Pajama Party! It's our online release party and it's at our forum on Splitcoast Stampers. It's THE place to view our new release and see what our fabulous Design Team, aka The Cat Pack have come up with. And yes, there is a lot of chatter.


It's Day Four in Sneaky Peek Week and it's another super cute image from Ou Ou Illustration. I tell you, that gal is just knocking things out of the park with her cuteness. Who can resist this sweet little girl with her heart in her hand? Not I. She's the main image in a set called "Merry Wishes" available next Tuesday.

Check out what Susan, Ana and Joanne whipped up with this little gal. I think you'll agree they're pretty special.

Talking Sneaky Peek Day Five


Counting down! We've got only a few more Sneaky Peeks before our big release! This next one is a peek at what is soon is becoming one of our more popular characters and from a designer that I have had the pleasure of working with these last few months, Zlatina Gocheva from Zlatoena Designs.

Zlatina just turned 21 and has a huge future ahead of her. Her drawings are so fun and just make me smile. So when she showed
me this little guy, I smiled so hard my cheeks hurt.

He's part of the new set "Define Good". What I love about him is that, being a bunny and all, he's doesn't need careful coloring. So he's perfect for making LOTS of Holiday cards.

Check out Jen, Julie, Susan and Joanne and you'll see what I mean.

Talking Sneaky Peek Day Six

Perhaps you've had a chance to check out my post from TCP Tuesday 134. In it I featured this sweet little gal from OuOu Illustrations.

This little gal is from the new set "Jingle Bells" and is the perfect size to color. She is all bundled up in her sweater, scarf and mittens. I love her little hair bows and how her feet jut out from under her bulky sweater. Just so sweet and perfect for cardmaking and scrapbooking. But don't take my word for it. Check out Tracy, Ana, and Amy for more looks.

Talking Sneaky Peek Day Seven

Only 2 Sneaky Peeks left before the big release on November 23, and you knew I couldn't get through a Sneaky Peek Week without showing you the Penguins. Larry, Curly, & Moe. Larry, Daryl & my other brother Daryl. The Three Amigos. Whatever you want to call them, they are still trouble with a capital T.

And this Holiday Season is no exception. In this new set "Round the Chimney" one hangs stockings at the fireplace, while the other two just have to play around. The question is "Who has been naughty or nice?" this year? And how can you tell?

We'll just have to leave that to you to decide. Or check out Tracy, Julie and Amy. They might know the answer.

Don't forget to check back tomorrow for our very last Sneaky Peek. Then join us on our Forum for our Pajama/Release Party at 7-9 est/4-6 pst. And then go shopping for some great NEW stamps and dies! Remember, we'll pick up the tab for shipping in the US from November 23-29. And if you are outside the US, shipping is only $3.00.

Talking Sneaky Peak Day Eight


It's the very last day of Sneaky Peek Week, which means this is the last day to see what will be releasing TOMORROW for our very last release of the year. This very last peek features the designs of Mew Paper Arts.

She's the gal who brought you the Bunnies in Tutus in our TuTu Much set and the Whale in our Whale of a Time Set.


Her Bunnies are very serene, with a touch of reserve. Her linework is very expressive. So when I saw this bunny placing the star on the tippy top of this tree, I feel in love.



It's simple, yet elegant. Fanciful, yet dignified. Her design is simple, but it says all it needs to say. AND with only 2 places to color, it's the perfect candidate for those HUNDREDS of cards you still have to stamp.

Check out Sony, Susan and Joanne for one last look at our new release. I think that there is something for everyone, this time around.

Then join us on our Forum for our Pajama/Release Party at 7-9 est/4-6 pst tonight. And then go shopping for some great NEW stamps and dies! Remember, we'll pick up the tab for shipping in the US from November 23-29. And if you are outside the US, shipping is only $3.00.
