Sporty Billy Sneak Peeks!!!!

I've been busting at the seams to show you these sneak peeks~ I feel like I truly am back in my stampin' groove and it feels so good (na na na na)! I went through a huge slump awhile ago and although my zest for stamping was back, I wasn't feeling the creativity !

So our little Billy has become quite the sporty fella! Here he's happy in the surf with his best friend~

I used my Nestie's Labels Tag to create the Shadow Box like card. First I cuttlebugged the Kraft panel and adhered it to the card front before cutting out the die. I coloured Billy with Copics, added a little Sakura Glaze pen to the surfboard and some stickles to the crest of the wave.

Colours: Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky and Neenah White. Stampin up! Circle Punch and Martha Stewart Beach Punch along with some Blue Bayou Stiched ribbon complete the card.

This cut out card features Football Billy. As some of you know, my son is an avid Football player, so I coloured this card in Jon's Team Colours. The Card base was created with my Cricut Wild Card Cartridge. In the stamp set, Billy and the little dog are one image, however I cut them apart so that I could have more options with the referee pup!

Be sure to head over to the Pink Cat Blog to get the down and dirty! Also, check the DT Blogs that you will find on my sidebar as they have some sweet surprises for you as well. This month's Guest Designer is Cindy Bundy. Be sure to check out her Whimsical Creations!
