Welcome! I've been playing with a new Papertrey Ink stamp set, Pompom Pals--this little guy is the cutest! Before I talk about him, I want to let you know about some upcoming Copic Marker classes in both Anaheim and Phoenix. For more information on Copic Certification Classes, check HERE, and on Copic Color and Ink Workshops, check HERE. By the way, you do NOT have to be attending CHA to attend the Anaheim classes. I will be attending CHA, and if you will be there, and I'd love to meet you. I'm teaching the Phoenix Standard and Intermediate Certification Classes on February 6-7 and hope to meet some of you there as well.
On to my little Pompom Pals reindeer card: I love all three of the Pompom Pals images, but the reindeer is my favorite! (Maybe after I have a chance to play with the other two, that will change.) Edited to add: When I linked to the Pompom Pals stamp set, I saw that it is now backordered. If you want it, you can sign up, and PTI will notify you when it is back in stock. I've had to do that before too. ;-)
Shown above are the Copic markers that I used to color the Pompom Pals reindeer image. I looked for pompoms locally, but had no luck finding the smaller sized ones. I've ordered some from Amazon, but in the meantime, I thought I'd just color his nose. If that hadn't worked, plan C was a red button, but I liked how it turned out, so I didn't need the button. :-) I used a glue pen and some fine glitter on the stars, and I used my Clear Spica Glitter pen to trace the lines on his scarf for a little extra sparkle.
I used a few Spellbinders dies with the reindeer--Standard Circles SM to cut the circle of the image, Fleur de Elegance for his little Kraft frame, Pierced Rectangles for the faux stitching on the panels, and Classic Ovals LG for the sentiment panel. I wanted to fussy-cut and pop up the reindeer and his scarf with foam tape, so I didn't have to worry about selectively cutting with my circle die.
Patterned papers are from Bo Bunny's Elf Magic collection. I've been wanting to use them for a while and thought that Rudy here was a perfect fit.
In other news, my son and I are headed down to South Carolina to visit with my parents this coming week. I have a couple of things I can post while I'm gone, but mostly, we plan to enjoy time with family. I hope you are having a great December! Thanks for visiting,
