I have had lots of fun colouring another of the CC Designs new releases!
This one's called Iggy and it's such a cute stamp.  Those penguins are adorable aren't they!?

I coloured her with copics and used some glitter on the fake fur of her outfit.
The igloo is covered in Glossy Accents too but you can't see the shine in the photo unfortunately.

The sentiment is from the Pollycraft Super Duper Sentiments set and I coloured in the middle word with copics to match the image.

I'm not sure whether sitting on an igloo would be much fun but playing with penguins most definitely would be!  :)

Ingredients :
Stamps : Iggy, Super Duper Sentiments
Card : x-press it,  Winter Fun (Carta Bella)
Ink : memento black, versafine
Squares #1 die, big scalloped squares die, library clip, copics

Copics used :

RV 21,23
E 000, 00, 21, 50, 53, 55
W 00, 1, 5, 7, 9
BG 0000, 10, 11, 72

Hi :)  I have a card using another adorable stamp from the CC Designs new release to share with you.
This one is a Pollycraft stamp called Snowflake.  She's just SO cute!
And I teamed her up with this fun saying from the Snowy Sentiments set.

I decided to create a background for her with distress inks.  After I had sponged on the inks I splattered some water on top.  Then I added some extra dimension by using texture paste with the Birthday Dots Stencil.  It was the first time I've tried this and I was really happy with how pretty it turned out.  I also added some snowflakes from the new Snowflakes Die.

Ingredients :
Stamps : Snowflake, Snowy Sentiments
Ink : memento black, versafine, broken china, tumbled glass and dusty concord distress inks
Card : x-press it, slate, silver
Other : Rectangles #1 Die, Snowflakes Die, Birthday Dots stencil, texture paste, copics

Cocoa Nancy

Today is the official RELEASE DAY for all of our new November products!! As you have seen from our Preview Days, all of these items are perfect for upcoming holidays and wintry days. You can view the entire release HERE!

We have 15 Character Stamps, 1 Sentiment Stamp Set, Snowflake Die Set, Make A Card #11 Winter Die, Snowy Day Enamel Dots, and 1 new Snowy Day 6x6 Paper Pad.  I told you....this release is AMAZING!!

I decided to use this very sweet Roberto's stamp called Cocoa Nancy.
  I thought she would look great on a cup-shaped card and I found this tutorial at Spitcoast Stampers if you'd like to give it a try. It's a gift card holder too, so it will be a great way to give someone a lovely treat to a favourite cafe. 

I've also used the new Snowflakes Die and the Snowy Day enamel dots and paper pad.
And I cut her out using the Ovals #1 Die.

Winter Bunny

Well it's nearly time for a new release at CC Designs.
Yes it's November already, can you believe it?!

I have a sneak peek for you today.  I've used two new stamps, Winter Cottage and Winter Bunny.
I just love this bunny, he's soooo cute!

I've also used the new Snowflakes Die and Make a Card #11 Winter die. The Snowy Day paper and dots are new too.

To make the background I stamped the cottage with versamark and clear embossed it.  Then I used CC Designs Snow Storm Ink Pad to paint on some snow.  I also used it around the edge of the card.

This release isn't actually a Christmas release,  and it doesn't even snow here at Christmas, but I just thought it would make a really cute Christmas card anyway :)

Ingredients :

Stamps : Winter Cottage, Winter Bunny
Card : x-press it, kraft, marina mist, Snowy Day paper
Ink : memento black, versamark, snow storm ink
Other : Snowflakes die, Make a card #11 Winter die,  snowy day dots, pinky rectangles die, rectangles #1 die, make a card #10 Christmas die, clear ep, copics, clear wink of stella

Copics used :
W 00, 1
R 000, 24, 30, 85
BG 0000
E 50, 53
B 93, 95

The design team are doing 3 days of previews and there is a prize to win each day over on the CC Designs Facebook page.  So please head over there, you never know, you might be lucky enough to win and even if you don't it's a great place to hang out for some fun and inspiration too! :)
