March New Release day at Two Paper Diva's

 Good Morning welcome to day one of the March New Release's from Two Paper diva's.
This card has heels from the new set called You've got Style . This set actually has 6 different single shoes and I masked these to make them into pairs. And it also uses a sentiment from the new set called Yes to Sprinkles. Both were stamped with versafine inks.
This is 5 1/2" square in real life, the white smooth cardstock is Neenah Solar white and the white texture is from Bazzill and the red texture is from Coredinations. There are some ribbons and vintage ric rac wrapped around the red panel and the sentiment panel was cut with an Simon Says stitched square die and placed on foam pop dots over the ribbons.

 While this was under construction I knew that the bling effect of the shoes would not photograph well for me in the cave and I had shot this real quick to catch the shimmer and then continued making the card. The heels were colored with prisma pencils and gel pens with glitter and then I ended up going over the tops of parts of them with some new glitter pens from crafters companion called Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. They are opaque glitter pens in a similar type of container like the wink of stella brushes. ( you have to remove a ring and put them together and they have a brush tip) So, this was the first time I had played with those.

 This was just a testing piece you know when you get new stamps and you just have to stamp it right this minute and then a funny thing happened and I had set it down off to the side ( on the pile of scraps of course) and This sentiment is a stand alone one called be the reason, and I was in that same train of thought off to stamp the next one while this dried. ( I was not sure if I could color inside the letters of some of the words or not) and I happened to shift something the next time I looked back I could see this blue paper from Bo Bunny peeking out. and I thought you know those colors really do look so elegant together. The sentiment is stamped on some Neenah classic cream in Versafine. So continuing with the elegant thought it was diecut with an Spellbinders labels 28 die. And I hemmed and hawed about this for a while because, you know I think people expect to see something different all the time but, I seriously make a big majority of my cards from my scrap pile and decided that it would just be dumb to not do it. the larger mulberry blooms are from Prima and the denim ones with the wooden beads are from Recollections. the lace is Vintage and this one is 6" square in real life. 


A closer look a the mix of fonts and textures. I have only showed you glimpse of three of the new sets you can find all the others here in the what's new tab and find links to see the other new things.
There are also peeks at some of the things the design team has been up to here in this tpd blog post.

Aw man, Stacy, gotta give you big props for getting all your reds to blend/match on that first card. I had to save it as a sample for using ribbon, love how you wrapped it. I really have to ration my use of the Winks, lol. One time I was just gonna use a little and before I knew it I'd brushed the whole card surface. They are addictive, but also every once in a while a big old BLOB of it comes out while you're using it so be prepared for that. It's easy to disperse and spread around though. xoxo
