I have a winter card for you tonight AND some exciting news that I forgot to share in the hubbub of World Card Making Day! First, my card: this sweet little image is from the Snow Signs set (FireCracker Designs by Pamela). I inadvertently left off his twiggy hair, which I had fully intended to stamp on the patterned paper layer in brown ink. . . By the time I realized it, there was no going back. I hope he won't be too embarrassed by my omission!
He is colored in the Copic markers shown below--yes, that many! Who knew that one could use so many colors on something that is mostly white? He is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and his sign is stamped in Turquoise Gem Versamagic and Raspberry Fizz PTI ink. (He has interchangeable words that fit his signpost--very clever!
The warmer shading that you see around his edges is from the PTI Chamomile Distress cube that I sponged him with to help him to coordinate with my Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly Mini Deck papers. (The large backdrop pattern is a 12" x 12" sheet, Breezy Freezy.) Ribbon and button are both PaperTrey Inks, Aqua Mist grosgrain and a Raspberry Fizz vintage button. I added dots of Diamond Stickles in the background for snow.
Now how about that news? Perhaps you've already seen it on the Cosmo Cricket blog, but there's a new paper line in town, Nutmeg! It, too, comes in Mini Decks--woohoo! (Okay, all of you card makers out there can't let me down--we have to show Eric and Julie that there IS a demand for mini decks, right?) I love my mini decks, and I know that I will love Nutmeg too--so warm and homey!
When I can get an extra mini deck, I promise to share. Well, that's it, my sweet snowman, and my big news. Have a wonderful day!
