Wags 'n Whiskers June Sneak Peeks: Day Two!

Welcome back! We've got another round of sneak peeks for the "Let's Party" June release at Wags 'n Whiskers. The official release day is tomorrow, and we have a great BLOG HOP planned for you, so make sure to schedule us into your day. Nikki and Lacey are introducing their brand new artist Emma Metcalfe and her line of W&W stamps called "Millie and Friends". This release will be available in both rubber and digital stamp format...but there is only a limited number of the rubber version, so you'd better get your's ordered quickly

This image is called "Ellie and Squeak", and it is one of my favourites from the new release! When my son was little (he's now 17!), he was obsessed with elephants, so I have a bit of a soft spot for them. Once again, I went with a 5x5 base (if you stopped by yesterday, you will know that I'm using this release to create a gift set of cards) and this gorgeous October Afternoon paper. I used just a little bit of ribbon, but no bow as I want to keep these cards "low profile". My plan is to make a gift package to hold this set, which is why I would like to keep them clean and simple. I added a sentiment from a clear set I've had for quite some time (got it from a clearance bin at Michaels).


After colouring the elephant and mouse, I cut them out with my Nesties using the "out of the box" technique again. I then added in the grass and sky.



Are you excited about this release? The Divas have had a lot of fun playing with Emma's new images...you will find links to their sneak peeks over at the Wags 'n Whiskers blog.

See you back tomorrow for the release day BLOG HOP! Oh, and check out this post HERE for your chance to win some of these fantastic digital stamps!

Blessings,

Melanie
