Little Cutie Release Party! Day 4!!!

Happy Thursday to you my dear blogging friends!!! 

It's time for some more Imaginisce Little Cutie inspiration for the boys!  I hope you've been hanging out over at the Imaginisce Blog this week, there are so many amazing projects from the Design Team! 

I thought it would be fun to focus on a few of the super cute Snag 'Em stamps for a project.  One of my other favorite things to do is try different types and styles of cards out from time to time.  Where to go?  Of course the best place to go when one is searching for things like this is Split Coast Stampers!  Thank you to Mary Jo Albright for this wonderful idea and the super instructions!
I used my Copic marker to color the crystal clear gems that pretty blue.  This was the first time I've tried this and I am in love with the effect!  I think I've had a few Copics now for about 10 days and I'm in love!

Here is what this looks when you fold it flat to mail.  You can leave it plain, add a ribbon, or use a simple paper sleeve as a cute decorative touch.  I couldn't resist the teddy bear and my i-Top!  Isn't he sweet?

I snapped a few photos during my creative process:
I started with my base 4.25 x 11 and scored per the instructions. 

This started as an experiment.  I initially planned to use the Little Cutie patterned paper for the base of the card, but then thought it would be more interesting to use the Snag 'Em stamps.  Doesn't the Versamark with embossing powder pop from the kraft card stock?  I loved it so I went with this. 

Tip:  Take a chance and cut apart your sentiment from your Snag 'Em stamp if you want more versatility.  I cut the sailboat apart from the "it's a boy!" sentiment and had fun with it! 
I then decided to bring in a little color and used my Copic Sketch in Slate Blue to my sailboats and rattles.  After that I misted over all of this with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Lemon.  It totally changed the feel of the kraft.

Other Tips:  Complete your tag card with stitching and any other major embellishments, then assemble.  For this card, it really is best if you use score tape.  I used my i-rock with my little stars and to attach my tag I used my Pogo.  I used some foam dots for dimension on my stars.

Hopefully you had a little stamping/inky/misty fun with me today!  I really love these pop up cards, I hope you give it a try for something fun and different and remember...  get your Snag 'Em stamps out!  

Be sure to stop on over to the Imaginisce Blog today to see what other inspirational projects the Design Team has for you with Little Cutie!  You certainly will want to leave a comment for your chance to win a collection of your very own!!!

Have a super scrappity day!!!
