Pretty Cute Stamps January 2015 New Release Blog Hop!

Thanks so much for joining us for the January 2015 Release Blog Hop, where we are all sharing projects featuring the new stamps this month that are now available in the Pretty Cute Stamps Store.

If you came from Janna's blog, you are in the right place. If you just stumbled across this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog

For my first project for the hop, I've used the Snack Time stamp set. This set is so cute!! The little faces just melt my heart.... and those sentiments! How many different ways could you seriously use this set?!

I used the Carta Bella paper collection, Summer Lovin'. This paper is so thick and textured, it makes your mouth water! I love the fun, summery feel to this card - and that pizza looks so yummy!

I stamped the images on watercolour paper with Antique Linen Distress Ink and then used the Distress Markers to watercolour the images in. 

Erica wanted to help me, so she held up the inside of the card! What an awesome sentiment, and a great helper ;)

Next, I created my this cute card using the Salt & Pepper stamp set. You can get this little set FREE with any 2 set minimum purchase during the sale, which ends Jan 27/15. You will definitely want to have this adorable set!

Again, I used the Carta Bella yummy paper - I just love the retro look of this pattern! I made this card for my hubby for Valentines, masculine enough for a guy, and still fun enough for me, lol!

I heat embossed the sweet shakers with white on black cardstock and then used a grey Souffle pen to colour in the tops and silver and white Wink Of Stella pens to create shimmer on the shakers. I used the hearts from the Snack Time stamp set, above, and added Stickles for shine.
