Welcome to day two of the Deasy Designs reveal! Today we are revealing the Say Anything stamp set. This set along with Happy Winter will be available tonight at midnight EST in the Deasy Designs online store! Say Anything is fabulous sentiment set that covers many occasions. I also like that the sentiments come in different sizes and fonts.Floral Fusion. Since this is a masculine card, I kept the rest of the card simple and added only minimal embellishments.

Welcome to our Happy Winter reveal post! Deasy Designs is releasing two new clear stamp sets that will be available for purchase at midnight EST on Oct. 1st over at the Deasy Designs store. Today we are revealing the Happy Winter stamp set. Isn't it adorable?! I love all the sweet, cuddly animals and the fun accessories in this set!
The polar bear is one of my favorite animals, so of course I chose to work with him first! For my card, I paired him with the little cup of cocoa (another favorite of mine) and the "stay warm" sentiment. The fun thing is that he doesn't just have to be a polar bear. He can be any kind of bear you want depending on how you color him!
Be sure to check back tomorrow for the full reveal of our other set!

It's time for another Picture Perfect challenge over on the Sparks challenge blog!
Here is the photo we are using as inspiration for this challenge:
I was inspired by the colors (blue, green, black, white, and silver) and shapes in this picture. I used the silver adhesive pearls and the polka dot embossing to mimic the round shape of the apples, clock and base of the candlestick; and I rounded one corner of the card to mimic the white arch over the mirror. Since the recessed area in the picture is blue surrounded by white, I chose to use a white card base and a blue panel to highlight the 3 shirts (from the Squeaky Clean set). The "I'm impressed" sentiment is also from Squeaky Clean and the "dude" sentiment is from Word Salad.
