Scrappy Boy Stamps April New Release: Pretty Little Things

How cute are these new release stamps from Scrappy Boy Stamps! These stamps were inspired by the Christmas ballet, The Nutcracker, but they can be used for any occasion, not just Christmas. This stamp set is called Pretty Little Things and there are coordinating outline dies for those who don't like to fussy cut. There is a bundle available too! There are one Christmas sentiment and four non-Christmas sentiments with this stamp set. All ten of the stamps can be used for Christmas or non-Christmas projects! Today I am sharing a birthday card I made with the ballerina, music box, teddy bear, and rocking horse, but I'll be making Christmas cards this month too.

To make this A2 size card, I first stamped the ballerina, music box, teddy bear, and rocking horse then cut it out using the coordinated outline dies. I then colored all the images using Copic markers. 

Copic Markers Used:
Hair: E59, E25, E33, E31
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
Cheeks: R20, R30
Dress: BG49, BG13, BG34, BG10, RV55, RV63, RV52, RV00
Pink: RV55, RV63, RV52, RV00
Gold: E25, Y38, Y21
Bear: E35, E33, E31
Horse Hair: E25, Y38, Y21
Horse: E35, E33, E31
Horse Rocker & Sadddle: BG49, BG13, BG10
Shelf: E47, E44, E43, E42

I then used a wacky outline die to cut out the A2 card front. I hand drew the shelf on the bottom of the card and colored it with Copic markers. Then I ink blended the center of the card with Distress Oxide ink in Spun Sugar. 

I stamped the sentiment and cut it out using a set of banner dies from Stamp Anniething. I adhered the sentiment and all the images onto the card front. Next I prepared a A2 card base using a light brown Kraft cardstock. I cut a mat in a darker Kraft cardstock and adhered all the layers together with liquid glue. I added a few sparkles with a white gel pen and the card was finished.

These stamps are so adorable and versatile. I can't wait to make Christmas cards with this set. Keep an eye out for it soon!  

Thank you for visiting and have a very creative week!
