Splendid new Stamps!

Quick post to show you a couple of cards made with one of Pink Poison's (Splendid Little Company) brand new stamp sets :) ! These sets are being released today...October 1st! This one's called "Cup O Stuff" and it's so darn sweet! You can see the entire set right HERE. I used Sketch #4, from the Splendid Little Blog, for the layout. I used Copics E13, E15, E08, YR24, YG03, YG06 & C1 to color the image. That fun Designer Paper is from SU and is called Haiku! The coordinating cardstock is So Saffron, Tangerine Tango & Chocolate Chip :)

Here's the inside, I didn't use any ribbon on the outside of my cards today {{gasp!}} so I snuck a little on the inside ~ And here's a card that I made for today' SCS color challenge (CC186), to use Really Rust, Chocolate Chip & Baja Breeze! Love that color combo!! Love the image!!! The card is a little plain, I keep wondering if it still needs something...but after re-making it 3 times tonight...I'm done with it, lol! Does that ever happen to you? Everytime I got a little frustrated with the card, I'd look at the sweet little mouse smiling up at me, and I just couldn't get too upset :) !!! Thanks Marie, for drawing such sweet images. They are a blast to color!!

Speaking of coloring, I used a combination of Copics and SU Inks & Blender pens to color the mouse & the cup. I wanted to play the color challenge, but didn't have the Copic for Baja Breeze (BG72), so I just grabbed my Baja Breeze & Kiwi Kiss Ink Pads, and a Blender Pen and used those to color the cup, flower & leaves, and you know what...it worked just fine! The Copics I used for the Mouse were E00, E13, E15, E95 and the rust on the cup was E08 & E09. I did a little shading with C1.
I'll have more to show you from these and other new Pink Poison sets...so stay tuned and thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

Fan-tab-u-lous cards girl! I don't think the second card needs anything, it's perfect and the sentiment is just so sweet!! I love that layout too, very fun!

What a strange brand name for a set of stamps :o)
You've made some lovely cards with them though. Such cute characters, lovely blended colours too.
