Welcome--I hope that you all had a wonderful day yesterday! It was pretty quiet around here with only the three of us here for Thanksgiving dinner. Oh, the leftovers. . . I tried to scale it back, but you might know how that goes. After I finished washing most of the dishes, I came downstairs and colored. (No surprise there!) So today I'm sharing my card from yesterday, using a darling little Power Poppy digital image, Let's Chill. If you haven't ever used a digital image before, this is a perfect one to start with. Why? It's only $1 this weekend! Friday (today, November 27) through Monday, at midnight CST, Power Poppy has 20% off of everything, with this little guy being only $1. You do not need a code; all prices will be lowered for those four days. [You can see the ad at the bottom of this post.]
I colored the little snow dude with my Copic markers, all listed above, after printing him out at the size I wanted him. (I know that I've told you this before, but the article that helped me most with knowing what to do with a digi-stamp was Julie Koerber's "I Bought a Digital Stamp. . . Now What?" )
I showed you both pictures so that you could see it before and after the glitter. I know--some of you are "allergic to" glitter! I love glitter though, and it's a great way to add something relatively flat that enhances a card. To apply glitter, I use my X-Press It Fine Glue Pen. Its ball-point tip lets me apply glue precisely. I'm going to show you a project with my wide glue pen another day, but the fine tip one is probably my most-used glue pen.
Papers are some old ones--yes, I'm still working through my stash. . . They are from a My Mind's Eye Merry 6 x 6 paper pad. I used a mixture of dies, but mostly MFT dies: Die-namics Blueprints 15 for the striped background, Die-namics Vertical Stitched Strips for the Christmas Tree panel, Die-namics Oval STAX Set 2 for the red mat layer, and Die-namics Cross Stitch Oval STAX for the focal image layer. I used a Spellbinders Nested Lacey Pennants for the little sentiment tag, but I extended it by hand-cutting the left end.
