New Release Sneak Peaks ~ Clear Stamps

ARE YOU READY!!!!
Yay!!! The time for Sneak Peaks of the new release is here!!! Are you ready for some cute stamp sets by Fleurette Bloom, aka FBStamps?!?!?! 

I have a card to show you today using one of the new sets. Until Fleurette, I had no idea what a Sugar Skull was, lol! Just hadn't crossed my radar, lol. I do now, and soooo cute! Anyway, I used the Sugar Skulls Stamp Set for this card.


First thing I did was create a grid on my background using a T-square ruler and stamped the smaller Sugar Skull on a diagonal line to create a fun pattern. Then I grabbed some fun colors in my Distress Markers and watercolored in the skulls.

I cut a frame in black using a Pretty Pink Posh die and glued acetate to the back. I then used two layers of foam tape to have room for the sequins to shake. I chose sequin colors like the background and put them into the frame piece. Then I put the background piece on top. And shake, shake, shake! I love shakers!!!

 
I took the larger Sugar Skull and used black embossing powder. Then I chose just a few spots to add some pops of color....same as in the background. I used some Stickles to make the frames around the glasses nice and sparkly. 
Then I embossed the sentiment on a strip of black and cut using the same frame die so it would nestle right into the scallops. Nice and tidy! Lol. I added some foam dimensionals to the back of the Sugar Skull and adhered it right above the strip. Added a few more sequins and then put that piece onto the front of an A2 sized card. 
Keep watching! There will be new Sneak Peaks every day. Lots of cute new stamp sets and you won't wanna miss any of them. 
Here's where you can shop for all the new goodies.

Hope you have fun watching the new stuff being shown, and hope you find a bit of inspiration as well!

Happy Crafting!
