January Monday Guest Designer #5

How fun is it that January has 5 Mondays?  To me it means that I get to be guest designer for another Monday over at the All That Scraps Blog.  This has been so fun for me.  And I get another 4 Mondays in February, how fun is that?!!!  Just give me March and April too!! LOL, I love these stamps, what can I say, I have said for a long time that I love all of CC Designs stamps.  These ladies over there are so talented!!!
Anyways, on to the cards that were featured today.  I used the Love Lolita Butterfly and the Love Lolita Honeybee today.  The first sentiment came from the set by AmyR called Sassy Sentiments, there are so many fun sentiments on this set. You will be seeing a lot of cards with this set in the future!!

It is hard to see on camera, but there is a lot of texture on this card.  I used glossy accents and stickles on her wings.  The dots in the background came from a tutorial over at my friend Dana's Inspirations Blog.
Hers is so much prettier than mine, but with practice and different colors everything gets better!!
The next card is one of my fave little Valentines I have done.  I used a shaped Nestie to get the shape of the card and the image, then I used this fun cloud paper and cut out clouds.  The sentiment for this card is from the Funny Valentines set.  Can't wait to show you next month what else I have done with this fun set!!
 Isn't she cute!!!  I stamped her a second time and cut out her honey pot and wing.  Then I glittered up her wing with some Martha Stewart glitter and used Glossy Accents on her dripping honey.  Isn't that little bee charm the best?  Found that at Michaels on clearance.

Do you see that fun new Watermark?  That was done by my friend Dana as well, it just took me a while to figure out how to add it to my creations!!  
As Always, thanks so much for stopping by my blog.  Head on over to the All That Scraps Store and check out their gorgeous stamps they released for January.  And you know what, tomorrow is the first of February so I am sure they will be having a new release tomorrow. How fun is that!!!

These are both adorable, Bren. I want to try that dot technique one of these days. I love the flowers and ribbon on the first card. That sentiment is great, too. On the second card, I love the idea of using a nestie to make a shaped card. I want to raid your charm storage, girl, and steal a ton!!! LOL

Congrats on the GDT spot over at all that scraps - they are both simply gorgeous - I love all the deep rich colors on the first one and the trim behind the image...The second card is amazing, too - love how you popped the sentiment and all the detail work on her wings. Beautiful job and lots of luck on your cards for the month.
