Sneak Peeks & January Challenge

Over on the Stampendous blog they are sharing a few of the new stamps that they released at CHA. Also the challenge this month at Stampendous is to use the adorable Stampendous Kiddos on a project. Since they have shared these projects I decided to share them as well. :)

My first project uses some really cool travelling stamps and sentiment:

I started with a suitcase that I painted with a little blue and white acrylic paint.  I then layered on the stamped images onto the surface and a few different ones I stamped on white cardstock and cut out and distressed.  My favorite part is the sentiment and the faux metal tag I attached dangling from the side.

My next card uses a new birthday set of the kiddos and some cool new shades of color fragments:
This card was used hot off the presses. :)  No sooner did I finish it before it was grabbed by my DD and off to a party it went. All images were colored with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils.

The next card is the cutest little fireman kiddo!
 I remember my younger brother sticking his tongue out like that when we were little and he was focusing on something. (Usually getting into trouble).  Love the little dog hanging off the truck!

The new stamps aren't in the store yet... but they will be and you can ask your LSS to order them now.  If you have any Kiddo stamps get them out and play along.  The link for this months channel is on my sidebar.

Have a great Friday!
