What's up this week?
Saturday: Countdown "0" IGNITION!!!! Sets will be released at 4pm CET/ 10am EST
(Kits are limited, so we have a different release time than for most releases because we want everyone to have a chance to get the kit.)
Today we have three design team samples for you, and they ROCK:
First up is Keeway who is - by the way - new on the team - woohooo! I love love love her projects, she has an amazing style and her cards all POP! Make sure to check her blog out (It just moved and looks so amazing now!). I am super porud to have her on the team because I think this girl is going PLACES!
This is her card for this release:
Look at that scene! The colors, the waterdrops and how this little guy seems to be behind the waves - I am in love!!
Next up is Sam, with a scrapbook layout in her unique mixes-media kind of style full of layers and little details.
Sam pulled up the stickers edges for a little detail, splattered some ink around and added a few enamel droplets. She also added mirror-stamping with the rhino - super adorable!
She used Papers, stamps, alphas and enamels from the kit and still kept it super clean. Don't you think this is an outstanding design?
Janine always keeps her color schemes simple - I think I can learn a lot from her.
That was release countdown "2" - I am now dicing into today's video hop which keeps me over the moon excited.
What is a video hop?:
Some cardmaking artists created videos using the kit and link to the next video and the end of their own video. This way you can hop from video to video and enjoy tons of crafty inspiration. Of course you can also visit the artists blog for more inspiration (and to subscribe!)
