Winter Warmth

Good Morning~~With winter on its way~~BRRRR, I decided to make a card with my new WOJ stamp. Henry Mouse is so adorable!!!! I created for these challenge blogs: Simon Says, Stamp Something, SSHP03, and Creatalicious.

Simon Says is this sketch by Domi!!
Stamp Something is all about sparkle, shimmer, glimmer and shine~~BLING!!!!!!
SSHP03 is to make a scene!! I made a winter warmth scene :D
Creatalicious is to use scraps and create your own flowers in which I made snowflakes instead :D
This is Henry Mouse from WOJ making Hot Cocoa in his large teacup so he can share the warmth of winter with his friends :-) I followed the sketch by Domi at Simon Says challenge blog and Added lots of bling such as sparkly ribbon, glitter dots, Foil snowflakes, and used the silver copic spica on bottom edge of teacup and also to dazzled up Henry's ears, cheeks and tummy!! Hard to see this in the photos :o Colored the image with copics. The dp and foil paper was in my scrapbox and I don't even know what co.?? Used MS snowflake punches to create snowflakes out of SU blue paper and teeny tiny flakes for centers are punched on AC Specialty Foil paper. Then placed a blue rhinestone in center. Designed corner of dp with MS snowflake corner punch and used the tiny stars to brighten Henry's thoughts :D The image of Henry and the snowflakes are all popped up with foam tape. Detailed using glitter dots and on the ribbon the snowflakes are silver so I popped up a felt fusion snowflake with rhinestone center!! Love this card and hope you enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOJ Wedding Card

Hello~ The awesome WOJ Anniversary Challenge is a sketch by Rach!!!!!

I created this wedding card seeing we have two weddings on same day in Nov. The focused image was WOJ's wedding cake~~colored cake and bride's dress with oyster Twinkling H2O, used copics for hair and groom's tux, and finished flowers and leaves with smooch (lime and taffy) to give it that shimmer. Deja Views paper and punch out wedding tablet gave me many options for this card. Matted the dp with BBP olive dotted swiss and shiny textured grey. Used SU pink to mat worded dp. Used foam tape to pop up the grey BBP and doubled foam tape to pop up the WOJ cake :-) Finished with flowers, BG bling it on flourish and His and Her wedding ring charms!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello~ Last night I was making this card just because :D and today when blog hopping I came across Erin's request for cards for Miss Paige. I already sent her one when the accident was announced. Now that time has passed it is still nice to know others care. I am going to send her another to brighten her day!!!!!!! Little Miss Daisy is sending wishes!!!!!!! I soooo enjoyed coloring her with my copics and my mom had given me the SU secret garden scrapbooking kit this summer and I decided to open it and "whala" it fit well with Miss Daisy :D
I used Fiskars and EK Success border punches along with Spellbinders large Octagon nesties and pierceabilities. The kit included so many options that the only added outside notions I used were BG Rhinestone Flower and a few other rhinestones. Below are close ups to enjoy!!! The cool thing about this blingy flower is that I popped up the leaves with foam tape and then placed the flower over~~so it is down on the card base and then up over the leaves. Looks neat with the dimension differences. Kinda hard to see here but on view of whole card it is little more noticable!!
Finished inside~~peel and paste from the SU Kit
Stamps: Sugar Nellie (Miss Daisy) and SU Teeny Tiny Wishes

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU and Copics

I created a "Happy Thanksgiving" card!! The focused Cornucopia image is a stamp from Cynthia Elmore. Cut out and embossed the image with Labels 4 nestie. Colored the image with copics and then used a dobber to highlight the entire image with Brillance Copper Cosmic Ink~~Love the glistening sparkle it portrays :D Matted the image with BBP dotted swiss paper and popped it up with foam tape. I CB embossed the dark DP edges with flower vine border and the smaller DP shapes with D'vine Swirls and Floral Screen. Added character with sentiment tag, ribbon, flowers and brad.
