Sweet November Preview Day 5 "Cinder, Breezy and Meadow"

Welcome to the fifth and final day of the Sweet November January Princess previews. I've had so much fun creating with this beautiful group of stamps. Please check out the Sweet November Design Team projects created by Traci Porter and Rachel Schneider along with the uber talented illustrator Amy Young. Today we are featuring three princess animal friends, "Meadow", "Cinder" or "Breezy". It was designer's choice so I selected Cinder the dragon and Breezy, a pegasus for my projects.

My first card pairs Cinder up with Ilyse. He definitely looks a bit love struck don't you think? I have once again used paper from the Bo Bunny Crush 6x6 pad which I am totally addicted to apparently. Both images were stamped onto Bazzill Simply Smooth Cardstock and then colored with Copic Markers. I trimmed both pieces and then mounted to my background layer, positioning Cinder at the feet of the princess so he could look up adoringly at her. Note my princess is more King Arthur's court than the Disney version, thus the flowing pink veils rather than hair.

Products: Sweet November stamps, Bo Bunny dp, My Favorite Things Die-namics and sentiment stamp, The Cat's Pajamas Cutups, PTI cs, felt and button, Kaisercraft pearls, Copic Markers

My second card features Breezy. The Ki Memories chipboard wings and the Doodlebug patterned paper are both older products from my stash. I really should segregate my Valentine's products much like I do Halloween and Christmas.

I hope you have enjoyed these Sweet November projects as much as I did making them. I would like to thank Amy Young again for asking me to guest design for this release. Be sure to stop by her blog to enter for her very generous giveaway. I can see so many uses for this fun group of stamps. What little girl (and this big girl) doesn't love a princess? Great for birthday cards, "princess" party invitations, love, Valentines, the list is endless. I really had more ideas for them than I had time so you will definitely see more of these characters in future projects ( tomorrow actually). Don't forget the stamps go on sale at All That Scraps on January 3.

I would like to wish each of you a very Happy New Year!!!!! We are not big new years revelers here but I do have a bottle of champagne chilling for us and a nice meal planned. I hope to see you back here in 2011.
