Mornin' folks (please scroll down for my Tickled Pink preview... thanks!)
So have you been enjoying the birthday celebration at Some Odd Girl this week? Lot's of fun stuff going on... including the release of three brand new clear stamp sets! And the best part is, they are available for pre-sale right now... yeah!
My card today features the new Cupcake Mae along with one of the sentiments that comes with her. OMGosh, how I love, love, love her hair! The pretty up-do with the quirky cherry accent is just SO much fun to color. And I had to make it confection pink not only to match the papers I chose to use but also because she is super sweet ... just like a cupcake. Oh, and if you want to practice adding candlelight to an image she's a great one for that as well. :)
Alrighty, be sure to hop on over to the SOG blog to see all of the beautiful birthday cards that my fellow Oddies have created with these new stamps. It's always so much fun to see everyone's different takes on the various images and they are sure to inspire!
Oh and real quick... I had a question about what size I make my cards and it varies. Most of the time I stick with the standard A2 (4 1/4 x 5 1/2), A6 (4 1/2 x 6 1/4) and A7 (5x7) sizes. Though sometimes I do make square cards and when I do they are either 5x5 or 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.
Hope this helps!
