Sugar Nellie SNEAK PEEK!!

Oh, oh, ohhhhhhhhhh!! I can't stand it!! Just a few more days until September 1st when the new Sugar Nellie stamps will be available for purchase from Funky Kits!!  I promise you...I WILL be setting my alarm for 0-dark-thirty so that I can get my order placed!! I've seen some of the new images...and believe me when I tell ya...these new stamps are the SWEETEST stamps ever!!

Now...hopefully you've been following Sugar Nellie's Blog for the past couple of days...because, if you have, you will have seen a preview of some of the new stamps!! If you haven't yet...pop on over to Sugar Nellie's Blog HERE and take a peek! Sooooo...I was lucky enough to get my sticky little hands on a couple of the delicious new images...this one is called "Hello little robin"...and I swear, this little darlin' was pure JOY to color!!

These DPs are from The Paper Studio..."A Country Christmas" collection. Then I pulled out some Stampin' Up cardstock (Bordering Blue and River Rock) and, believe it or not, this card just sort of made itself! hehehe!

I used Nestabilities square and scalloped square dies...and added some white lace from my stash as well as some Cherry Cobbler seam binding (from Stampin' Up).

You may have noticed that this cutie's wings are kinda sparkly...true...Martha Stewart's Coarse Glitter!! And the "snow" is a mixture of MS glitter and Flower Soft snow! And the "fur trim" is Liquid Applique (heated w/a heat gun for a cool wrinkly effect!) Oh...that sentiment on the front is from Lili of the Valley...and the metal corner and gorgeous roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts!

The inside sentiment is from Stampin' Up...and the "mitten" charm is from my stash...and (as best as I can recall) here are the Copics I used to color this little fairy...
