QKD New Release and 12 Days of Christmas: Day 2

Woohoo! We are previewing new releases for Queen Kat Designs this week! How exciting is that? If you are just stumbling in today, then go back to the QKD blog so you don't miss any of the fun. If you came from sweetie Sara's blog, then you are in the right place!

So, hopefully I don't get in trouble for this but I'm showing you two cards today. :) The first one is the mermaid I got to work with. As if designing is work. Her name is Evangeline. She's HUGE! This is an A2 card and you can see how much room she takes up. I tried to keep things rather simple. You can't really tell but the wall behind her is colored grey. I just colored her, matted her on black and attached her to the card. The Cuttlebug folder is D'vine Swirls. The ribbon is from Michael's. Oh, and all the bubbles were done up in Crystal Stickles.

So, this is a rather untraditional Christmas card. It's made with the Koi Pond stamp that will be released on Wednesday. Alex actually gave me this idea. She told me to stamp the image in red and make a monochromatic card. The DP is from the DCWV Christmas stack from last year. And the sheer white ribbon is from Joann Fabrics.

Ok, from here you hop on over to the Queen Kat Store and pick yourself up some new goodies! But if you want to wait until the new release on Wedneday to buy something, you can, I guess. However, there is a sale today!
