Scrappy Moms Sneak Peeks!

If you are looking for my EAD Blog Hop post, click HERE or just scroll's right below this post!

Hooray!  It's time for Scrappy Moms Sneak Peeks!  The design team will be showcasing TWO brand new stamp sets: "All in the Family" and "Special Delivery."  As always, they are very cute and very useful for cards and scrapbook pages!

All in the Family
If you saw my EAD post earlier today, then you've already seen one of these little Matryoshka Doll stamps. I found them on clearance at Michael's on Friday and I am a little bit obsessed with them right now.  I saw THIS fabulous paper piecing tutorial on the Market Streep Stamps blog a few months ago, and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to give it a try.  It's a little harder than I had anticipated, but  I am pretty happy with the end result!

I embossed the sentiment and I love the crisp look!
Here is the second release:
Special Delivery
See...I told you I was a little obsessed.  They are just so cute!  I tried something a little new for this one.  I stamped the little doll using Versamark and then embossed it with black embossing powder.  The embossed image was A LOT easier to color in using my watercolor pencils.  

I hope you enjoyed the first sneak peeks!  Make sure to check back tomorrow for even more!  If you would like some more inspiration, check out the
