It's Release Day!!!

It's Release Day at Shannon's Sentiments!!!!  Holy cow has Shannon outdone herself!!!! There are FIVE full sets of stamps in this release... you heard right - FIVE!  Of course I went a little nuts, so warning - this is a long post, but worth the gazing!  Don't get too mesmerized, because there are MORE stops on the hop today.  Your next stop is our Guest Designer, Becky Givans.  Speaking of hop, you should have come from Cindy's fabulous blog.  If not, it's ok, the complete list of hoppers is at the end of this post.  Don't forget to join us tonight @ 8PM EST at SNR for the Release Party.  It's gonna be a BLAST!  Why? Because there's FREE STUFF to be given away tonight!
My first project to show you is 95% digital.  The butterflies and sentiment are from the Spring Time set.  Just having a little fun in Photoshop with them... perhaps you may see these butterflies again tonight at the release party... I merely printed it out, cut it out, stuck it on a kraft card, and added a little rhinestone butterfly... end of story!

My next project is a little more hybrid number that uses the new Shower Time set.  This set has a million options that I can think of off the top of my head... SO awesome!  I chose to go a little odd way (shocked, I know you are!)...

Stamps: Shower Time by SS
Ink: None
Copics: Baby Blue Spica, Olive Spica, Pink Spica (used on the sentiment)
Paper: Georgia Pacific White (print the digi image), Tempting Turquoise by SU
Accessories: Crystal Effects by SU, Dew Drops by The Robin's Nest
Punches: None
Big Shot:
Challenges Used: SS Release Day!!!

My next card is a super simple one (caution, it's a bright one, tho!)... just cut color the flower, print it, then cut 3 different Blossom 2 flowers, emboss the background in an embossing folder, add brad, glue.

The next two cards use my favorite set in the release - Hands of Time.  It's SO versatile!  As soon as I saw the clock images, I knew there was going to be some cracked glass in the future, so here it is!  I double-embossed the Big Scalloped circle, pretty much by accident, but I like the way it looks on this shabby card.   I set the clock to be 2:00, meaning 2:00pm, because that's when time seems to stop for me during the day... how about you?  I think the rest is pretty self-explanatory.
 This last card was SUPER fun!  I made two elements for this card in PSE - the "plastic" number background and the brad.  The numbers are from the tilted clock image, just a little copy/paste action, and lookie there - some hip element to your page.  You notice the time on the brad?  Oh yes, it's 5:00 somewhere!  I've been wanting to use this cocktail images for some time, so here it is at 5:00! 5AM, but whatever, that's still 5:00, right?  Shannon will be giving away some of these elements I made, along with some other things, tonight, so you will NOT want to miss the release party!
