Market Street Sneak Peek!!

Hello, all! So glad you could make it for this month's Market Street Stamps Sneak Peek. I had so much fun making this card. Angelica is so talented and it is such a pleasure to use her stamps.
I made the background using Ranger's Alcohol Inks. This is my most favorite technique ever. I can sit down and make these backgrounds for hours, working with all of the different colors and variations. There are several tutorials out there, but if anyone is interested let me know and I can do a video.
This stamp worked perfectly to put on the background. I then layered a couple of ribbons for some texture, and added the button to finish of the card.
I can't wait for you to see the rest of the sneaks!
Make sure you stop by the Market Street Stamps blog often for updates and directions on where to go next, and the other fabulous ladies from the design team's blogs (they are listed over on the right hand side) to see the amazing projects that they have made using the stamps that are being released this month. There are 3 of us doing sneak peeks each night until Thursday when we have the January Release Blog Hop where each each of us will do a "Designer's Choice." The sets will go on sale at midnight on January 27th on the website here, and there will be plenty of chances to win some of the new sets!
Also, don't forget to use the promo code dobea15 to get 15% off of your order until the end of the month!!!

***Edited*** Hopefully the picture looks somewhat better now. I figured out what is wrong with my camera, and I now need to use it on manual focus only until I either get it fixed or purchase a new camera. I will apologize ahead of time, but my camera has gone into an early retirement, so I am having to make do with a sub. As soon as I can, I will replace my photos with some better lighted…

Baby Congrats

Just popping in to share a card I made for my cousin and his adorable wife.
I used paper and decorative tape from Bella Blvd and the Baby Basics set from Market Street Stamps.

The coloring was done with Copic Markers.
It's a real simple but super cute card for their upcoming precious baby boy!

Joy to the World

***EDITED with Giveaway Winner***

What a rainy Saturday we are having here where I am!! For some reason I thought we were in December!?! All of our snow is gone {the whole one time it snowed and left anything behind ;)}.
Well, even though it sure doesn't look like the Holidays are coming around here, hopefully you are feeling it in your neck of the woods.
Today starts a brand new challenge over on the 365 Cards blog. It has been Opposite week over there, and today the opposite prompt is long and short.
