Little Paper Shop Preview!

Good morning and welcome to another Little Paper Shop Monday! We have a few announcements today so hold onto your hats!!

We are so fortunate to to announce a new Design Team member! Ann Kranitz, previously a guest designer for Little Paper Shop, has been asked to stay so yay!! Ann and welcome to Little Paper Shop!

So then we of course we needed a guest designer and we found Pam Varnell - yay! so Pam will be with us for a couple of releases! Welcome to you Pam also!

Today's challenge is a double whammy - we are challenging you to enter our sketch challenge, LPSC35, and we are also previewing a new stamp that will be released on Saturday October 3rd!!

There are two say to win this little cutie Katie Caroler. If you enter the sketch challenge and if you comment on the Little Paper Shop blog - double the chances, and double the fun! The winner will be announced on Monday October 5th!

On with the show! Here is the sketch this week and my preview of that sweet Katie Caroler!

I used Cosmo Cricket 's Jolly by Golly paper with Papertrey Ink cardstock and followed the sketch.

I stamped Miss Katie with Memento black ink, (which will not streak when you colour with your copics) and then masked her so that I could stamp the fence. Since the fence has a post on either end, I masked the one post and stamped the fence again.

I stamped and coloured the lamp post, cut it out and adhered it beside Katie. Then I added a
Zva Crystal dot on top of the bulb and used my Spica glitter pen to highlight the light all sparkly and pretty.

I added a bit of Sugar Sparkly fluff to the lamp post and around her feet to make it look like sparkly snow! I LOVE it! As a final touch I used a Zva Creative crystal flourish to make her song beautiful!!

I hope you liked my preview of Katie Caroler and please check out the other design team's previews! I am sure they will be so sweet!!
