I have something from each of the 4 new sets to show you today! All the sets are images designed by Jodie Mackrell of Bugaboo Stamps. I love that they are all cute and funny, what a great combination.

The first one above, is Chef Pierre. I found this cool dp at our local Scrapbooking store. I Also had a recipe box from Michaels $1.50 bin in my stash and I found the big wooden pin at Michaels too! It was red, so I didn't have to paint it, how perfect! So I covered the recipe box with the dp. Then I stamped the Chef 2 times and coloured him with copics, and the serving dish is covered with a silver atyou spica. I cut one to fit the pin and the other with oval petite nesties.

I stamped the sentiment onto the pin with black stazon ink. The pin has old olive taffeta ribbon, and the box old olive satin ribbon. I punched out one of the plates from the dp yo can see in the pic and covered it with crystal effects. I tied a button around the bow, and then attached the plate to the button with crystal effects. I love how it turned out, great gift, but I may keep it myself!!!

Next up is a card I made using the TLC278 magical marquee challenge! What a cool card, who comes up with this stuff!!!

Okay so this is the new Gus & Stella. I coloured them with copics and added crystal effects to their glasses. I followed the directions for the card above, using always artichoke, rose red, very vanilla and dp. Both sentiments on the front and inside come with this set, along with a couple others.
Here you can see the inside. I embossed the rose red panel with the SU rose embossing folder. If you can't red the sentiment, it says 'Still remains a secret!"

This was actually the very first card I made with the new sets. This one just cracks me up, this is Bentley! The local stamping store just got in the new Clockworks embossing folder and I thought it would go great with this sentiment! I also used a layout I had seen on Melissa's blog recently.
The card base is black, with a layer of white embossed with the love language embossing folder. I embossed the black pieces, then ran over them with my white craft ink pad.
Bentley was stamped with memento tuxedo black, and coloured with copics. I used the circle and inverted circle dies to cut him & the layers out, plus I added dimensionals inbetween 2 layers to really add dimension. I finished it off with a tiny red heart gem!
And finally the new JJ Pregnant! She also comes with lots of sayings. For this one, I used old olive as the cardbase, then very vanilla and then dp from the DCWV text print mat pack.
JJ was stamped with black and coloured with copics. I added a scrap of dp for her top. I was really taken with Becca Feeken's tutorial on right angle punching, so I had to give it a try! I used a MS corner punch for this one, but I can't remember the name of it!!! I popped this up, then added buttons and ribbon.
The main image is also popped up, and then I used a word window and oval for the sentiment which is also popped up.
If you started the Blog Hop at the beginning, you should have arrived here from Melissa's and from here you will head over to Becky's!
And just incase you're really lost, here's the whole Hopping list!
Happy Hopping, and good luck!
Laurie
