Release Countdown "3" - Inspiration by Anika and Samantha

Hello everyone!

It's release-countdown week!
That means we're introducing our newest products to you, sharing inspiration and also excitement :)
Countdown 3 means there are 3 more days until the new products will be added to the shop.

This month we are releasing four new stamp sets, and it's going to be LOVEly!

Lots of cute critters and also images and sentiments for the more elegant-crafters - I guess there's a favorite set for everyone.

Time for some inspiration!
Today is Anika's and Samantha's turn. Before we get started I'd like to show you what's waiting for you during the next days:

Wednesday:  Countdown "2" Inspiration by Marina, Yoonsun and Kelly
Thursday:     Countdown "1" Giveaway-day!
Friday:         Countdown "0" IGNITION!!!! Sets will be released at 9 am CET (2am EST)

Let's see what we have for you today ;)

First up is Anika  with a super cute card that looks simple at first, but has great details if you take a closer look:
She used the little bird from Lovely Critters and did a fantastic job on coloring. she added a diecut circle (this is a MFT die), added matching patternes paper and even used patterned paper to make the sentiment banners with sentiments from This Must Be Love pop. Orange, yellow and aqua is one of my favorite combos, so she totally got me with this :)

Look at that coloring! And the glossy accents on the beak and the feet adds a little extra:

Samantha made me giggle. When I told her how much I loved the coloring on her card she told me that she "channeled her inner Nina-Marie for that look - haha! Sam used the deer from the Made Of Snow set and made him really look like he was built - swoon! She combined sentiments from that set and also older sets and did some fuzzy cutting for a little "somethin' somethin'" (that's how Laura Bassen calls her extra details). That ink blending on the background makes this card just PERFECT - don't you think?

These girls rock! (and they make even ME want to buy the stamps, which is insane, right?)

Hope you enjoy release countdowns just as much as we do!

Thanks for stopping by!
