TAWS New Release Blog hop - February 2015

Greetings Crafty Friends!!

So glad you're here with me hopping for today's new release Blog Hop at The Alley Way Stamps!!  You should be arriving from Marina's blog and if not make sure to start at the beginning so you don't miss any gorgeous creations! You've been along with us for the three day sneak peek ride and today's the day you can purchase all of the new TAWS stamps!!  Alison has totally outdone herself, yet again, with this month's release!  Such awesome critters and adorable images coming your way!  
Today I'm using a new set called "Tootharina" which couldn't be any cuter!!  I've been on a huge watercoloring kick lately and today's creation is no exception!  I inked Tootharina using black Momento Ink onto really good quality watercolor paper.  I'm not preferential to a brand but it has to be really thick - at LEAST 140lb.  I used some Distress Markers and some Sakura pan watercolors to create my image.  I have to say that I love the exaggerated look of the super bright cheeks on cute images like this.  I then stamped her name - of which the font is BEAUTIFUL onto the panel and set it aside.  
I pieced together this background from a variety of papers that I've received in multiple Studio Calico kits over the months.  I stitched them together and then placed the super cute postage stamp that's in the set in the top right.  I stamped the tooth from the set and trimmed it out to add to my main panel for some added balance and cuteness!

I added a die cut arrow from THIS set using awesome glitter paper that I picked up at my local Michael's.  I stopped here because I had so many layers and bright colors I didn't want to overwhelm the rest of the card.

I hope you've enjoyed my project!  Now it's off to N@Ali's blog to see what awesome project she's got in store for you!  And check out the full hop list below along with some fabulous information about this release!

Just for fun, I'm entering this into the SSS Anything Goes Challenge going on now!

Crafty Hugs!

Cute card.
This is a subject that's needed to be covered. It will be so much fun using it for cards when the kids lose their teeth (or grandma loses hers :-)
