Hello Spring - New Release from Stamps and Smiles

Here is the 2nd of the five new releases from Stamps and Smiles. All week long you will see samples using the new sets. We have a full week of challenges, giveaways and our first Blog Hop, which will start Friday, May 8th at 9 pm central. The new releases will be available after the Blog Hop.

Today I would like to introduce the Hello Spring set, which is 4 x 6 inches, a total of 20 stamps. Over on the Stamps and Smiles blog, they are hosting a sketch challenge. Be sure to check it out and play along for a chance to win free stamps.

So here is my card for today using the new set. I began by stamping the small cupcake on Cryogen white paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I masked her then stamped Cuppy so her hand is holding the smaller cupcake. I masked Cuppy as well to add the puddle and the rain drops. I added a few additional single drops here and there. I stamped the cloud to the left, masked it and added the second cloud. The icing on Cuppy and the boots are paper pieced. For the rest, I used my Copic markers:
Clouds and rain drops - B000 and blender pen
Faces - E00, R20
Cuffs and lace - R81
Dress - R85
Icing on small cupcake - R81
Cheery - R85
The designer paper is from 3 Bugs in a Rug. Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
