January Sneak Peek Release Day 4

Hello Divas, DT Janni here.

What do you think of January Release so fare, amazing right?! It just keeps getting better.....

Today is day 4 of the release and the stamp set I am going to show you is called 'Crabby Critters' and it really does put a big smile on my face, so much fun! I couldn't decide which Crabby Critter to use, so I made 2 cards to show you.

The first card I want to show you is this shaker card.

I colored up the fun elephant, and found colors for the hat to match the sequins from 'Skyfall Sequins'. I cut out a cardbase in 10x13cm, and used the middle size die from 'Inside Scalloped Circle Dies' to cut a whole for my shaker window. I then glued a piece of acetate to the back to cover the window and used 3D foam all the way around to hold in the sequins. I added the sequins and glued the cardbase to my card. I added some foam dots to the back of the elephant and placed him in the center of my shaker window.

Is that elephant cute or what - that smile is killing me! 

For this card I also used the new 'Happy Die' and 'Happy Sentiments' stamp set - two new products that I know I'm going to use for many projects!
I used my regular stamping paper to cut out 'Happy' and colored it up with my copics, using some of  the same colors as I used for the fire extinguisher. The little blue piece is colored with the same colors as the hat, and I used the stamp DAY from  'Happy Sentiments' for that. 
I made a little banner with 'Flag Banner Dies' and added the cut out Happy on that, and placed it under the elephant. I used a white marker som add some highlights to the cheeks and some on Happy. The word DAY I glued right next to Happy and added a lot of sequins around the card.

My second card with 'Crabby Critters' is also a shaker card, this time using the naughty fox from the stamp set - he's just counting down the days to ..........

After coloring up the fox I found colors to match 'Fall Harvest Sequins' for the balloon and hat.
I used Distress Oxide 'Cracked Pistachio' to color up my front panel and cut it with the scalloped die from 'Fancy Frame dies'. Then I used 'Picture Frame die' to cut out my shaker window, and then I added the sequins and glued it together as I did with my first card.

What about that smile - he's naughty right?!

I used 'Flag Banner Dies' to cut out a little banner for the sentiment from 'Crabby Critters' and added it above the shaker window. Again I used my white pen to add some highlights for the cheeks and the balloon. I used more sequins from' Fall Harvest Sequins' to decorate the card - and it's done!

I hope you think this new stamp set is as fun as I do :o)

Thanks for stopping by - see you soon again.
