This is one of the early images for me. I love it, and I equally love the sentiment that goes with it.
Well this weeks theme is Glitter/Glitz love doing that! Bling baby! And I just happened to get a box in the mail yesterday from Paperworks Co. I just found them last week, and found some really yummy things there. Including some beautiful papers from Doodlebug. Look at all that fabulous Glitter on it! I got lots of colors - went a bit nuts... but I have some really fun papers, including some velvet paper can't wait to use that!
Ok, enough drooling on my new papers, back to the card. I matted the glitter patten papers onto a cream colored card stock and zig zag stitched them down. I then found a Bazzill Scallop Border in the same color and used it for a band across the card. I colored my little ballerina with my Copics, and cut with Nestiblities Ovals. The back ground ended up very harsh and white when I put it on the card, so I colored it in with my R1 copic, pretty close to the cards stock color. I then had the same problem with the sentiment, too bright white. I pulled out my new Compressor Hubby let me get this week... Love ya Honey! I was just dying to use it anyway... LOL... and sprayed in a pink background. Wow this thing actually works! My last one just didn't have enough air. I matted it on the cream card stock.
Oh and don't you love those flowers! I haven't used them in a long time - they have the perfect shimmer, and were the perfect colors. I punched four Martha Stewart Frond leaf punches, and then centered them with Dew Drops. All of this was put onto a pink card stock. Then there was just one last thing..... Her tutu! It was screaming for stickles!
I think I covered the Glitz/Glimmer/Glitter challenge, don't you?
Hope you get a chance to see all of the House Mouse DT cards, they are some really talented ladies! Wow!
Ok, so are any of you stressing as much as I am about Christmas spreading at them like a run away train? I am starting to freak out! I have not even started my Christmas Cards! I know you are thinking "hello what are all of these Christmas card I have seen on this blog"? But I started a tradition oh about 8 or 9 years ago... I make photo Christmas cards and have each of our "pets" on the front of them. It was a cute tradition, and once I said I was going to stop it and start sending my "cute" stamped cards... I thought the two ladies across the lunch table from me were going to jump across and attack me. Seems my family and friends have been saving the photo cards and won't accept me stopping them. Well this was all really simple, fun and cute when I had a dog and a couple of cats. Then over the years I added a donkey or two... lost the cats... added more donkeys... more donkeys... then added a cat again... and more donkeys - Have you ever tried to make a cute card with 28 donkeys and border collie and a cat? Well this won't be my cutest this year - but I am proud to say they are all accounted for on this years - not creative but on there! Now to just get the cards put together and addressed and mailed. All 60-70 of them!
Better get busy huh? But first Breakfast, and some Blog surfing - LoL!
