DRS Designs Release Day!!!!!!!!

I don't think I have ever been so excited about a DRS Designs release day as I am today. Today's release is FANTASTIC. I love every single stamp being released this month!!!! There are 6 adorable Cutie Pie Kids stamps being released as well as a bunch of other adorable Easter stamps and some new sympathy stamps. I LOVE them all (and I think you will too!!). Check out the DRS Designs web site to see the entire collection of new releases!

Today I have another Cutie Pie Kid card to share with you. I love this card. I don't say that often about my cards but I really really love this card. Now with that said, let me tell you that this was a 3 1/2 hour card. Yep, 3 1/2 hours! Now how could such a simple card take 3 1/2 hours. Well....that isn't designer paper in the background. Using my handy dandy STAMP-A-MA-JIG....I made the background using portions of 2 different DRS Designs stamps:


















Using the star in the bottom left corner of the "Interlocking Star Background" and the "USA" from the "USA-Thanks To Our Brave" stamp I made the background paper. I colored the USA with my Prismacolor markers and added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the stars. The Cutie Pie girl is also colored with Prismacolor markers. Isn't she just absolutely adorable. I can't stop gushing about these new stamps because I just absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!!!!!!
The glitter is really hard to see in the picture but it looks fabulous in real life! The picture also makes the cardstock base look black but it is actually Night of Navy.
Supplies used: Stamps from DRS Designs, SU CS, SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Prismacolor markers, foam dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
