We've got a special guest hopping with us today! I'd like to give Mary Lou from Mary Lou's Corner a warm welcome!!! (If you've come from Anki's blog, you are right on track. If not, you may wish to start at the beginning which is Elaine's blog!)
I am so excited to share my cards with you today!!! There are two NEW RELEASES which you will see as you Hop along the Inspiration trail... The first image I've used is Shopping Buds from Victoria Case for SCACD mini Winter Hearts and Hugs Set.
Cute Card Thursday's Challenge - Anything Goes,
Lily of the Valley's Challenge - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Give Thanks
These two cuties are colored with copics: (Girl on left) Hair - E35 E34 YR21 YR20; Skin - E11 E21 E00 R20; Clothes/boots - E35 E34 E33 E31 E30; Stripes - G85 G40; Shopping bags - Black and Gold atyou Spica pens. (Girl on right) Hair - E49 E59 E25 E53; Coat and hat - G85 G82 G40; Boots - E59 E57 E53; Gift and bag - Black atyou Spica pen.
Yay - I got to use a new product! The red ribbon on the gift and red panel on the bag is Tonertex Foil. I'm not sure how well you can see the glittery shine... if you click on the photo, it should enlarge for you. The Tonertex starter pack comes with a write 'n' rub foiling pen and foil. You simply color in the area you which to 'foil' with the foiling pen. After the adhesive dries, place the foil colored side up and rub over it. Carefully peel back and see the WOW!!! For even more dimension, I've given the red foiled areas a coat of Diamond Glaze. Stardust Stickles gives additional interest over the Black atyou Spica pen.
Did you notice the White Sparkly Fluff on the fur areas of the coat and hat? It's called 'Sugar.' You wanted to touch it, huh? lol! The snow was created with Polar White Flower Soft. I love using flower soft for snow! The pearls are compliments of my Gold Paper Pen by Viva Decor. You know how much I LOVE this product!!! DP is Kaisercraft 'Tis the Season Collection. There are many wonderful papers in this set! Ribbon is from my stash and oh so sparkly! You should see my kitchen floor... it's even on my dog LOL!!! I created the sentiment on my computer.
For my second card, I've used Winter Emma by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. (This is a NEVER BEFORE SEEN stamp and is not part of the NEW RELEASE mini Winter Sampler).
Emma is also colored with copics: Hair - E49 E59 E25 E53; Skin - E11 E21 E00 R20; Clothes - YR21 YR20; Headband - B95 B93 B91; Boots - E59 E57 E55 E53; Kitty - C7 C5 C3.
The beautiful blue on her ear muff, scarf and mittens is Breezy Blue Sparkly Fluff. It's so soft and touchable! For snow this time, I used Silver Flower Soft and the 'snowflakes' I created in the background is Viva Decor Glitter Liner. The teeny tiny pearls around the scalloped oval is Viva Decor Opal Paper Pen. You can make any size pearls with this product!
With love... awww... This is embossed with a Cuttlebug EF and very lightly rubbed with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. Again, the silver border is the NEW Silver Flower Soft!
Another sentiment generated from my computer and lined with Viva Decor Glitter Liner. More pearls in the corners using Viva Decor Opal Paper Pen. Lace, button, charm and flowers from my stash.
