Glam It Up

Hey everyone!!  Today I would like to share with you a card
that I made for the challenge over at Mari Digis Challenge Blog
#5 All That Glitters

You can find Mari Digis HERE

I didn't have shimmer paper to match her, so I dug deep in my supplies and found
some spray glitter in silver.  One of those left offer project materials that sit until a new use is found.
It did give the paper a very nice shimmer effect.

I added a few pearls and rhinestones.
I wrapped satin ribbon down the middle and added a bow.

There are 4 panels stacked and staggered behind her cut on a Cricut from
Anna Griffin embellishments.

I colored her with Copics for the skin and hair

Hair:  E50, E51, E53, E33, E57
Skin:  E000, E00, E51, E11, E33, RV00

Her dress was colored with Spectrum Niors
BT1, BT2, BT4, BT5 and a Copic BG10

I used Recollections Papers from the Summer Rain pack.
My card base is 4 1/x 6 1/4"2"

Centered Stage

You  use this to make your version and this is my take on it.

Filled With Love

Hello everyone!

I am just so excited to show you this as the papers are
created after my coloring rendition of this fabulous Christmas Bestie.
This is from Sherri Baldy's My Besties new release.
Filled with Love digi and papers

I am just tickled pink with how this turned out.

Here is the original coloring I did on a card.

This is image img690
You can find it HERE.

I also created this box from the papers.
You can find the paper pack HERE

How did I do the plaque?   I started with a blank wood pre-cut plaque.
I primed it with white primer and added a pearl coat ontop of that.
I modpodged a sheet of decorative paper on the whole top and sanded the edges off.

After that dried, I added the papers from this collection of top.
I printed 3 sheets with My Besties on it and fussy cut to make her 3D.
The 3rd sheet I cut her bow, hat pom pom and flower and raised them again.

The hope, dream and believe words are dies from Little Yellow Bicycle
I cut them 3 times and stacked together to give them more volume.
I modpodged them down and let the whole piece dry.
I added pre-made snowflakes and mini poinsettias.


Thanks for having a look.
