I wanted to say a big thank you to Miss Margaret (Dutchess) for being so helpful recently. Miss Margaret is a member of the Christmas Card Club that 'meets' every 2 weeks. I wished to add a member list on my sidebar. Didn't know how, so Margaret gave me some excellent & precise instructions, which I was able to follow successfully. That's solely due to her wonderful directions! Thanks again Margaret.
Today's 2 cards for the Rudolph Challenge have been finished for a bit, but I needed to catch up on some visits & comments before these were posted. Both images were found during the recent snippet sorting.
- PB Hedgie - love those little guys! Colored with copics. WoStella on the berries for some glisten. Die cut with a new S/B Labels 36*.
- Sponged some DI Sage while the image was still in the die. Made a rough mask for Hedgie's body and then inked a script stamp with Memento Desert sand to stamp the background. Inked off once - so the script would be more subtle.
- faux red mat cut from the same size die. The red was a snippet just the right size, and the cardstock has some gold glimmer spots in the paper, some of which shows up at the top left on the mat.
- Card shape and card front was cut with a larger die from the S/B Label 36. Green DP is from a Christmas 12x12 DCWV pack bought years ago.
- Elizabeth Craft sentiment sticker. Didn't want to cover up little hedgie. Doesn't he just look so happy dancing along with his holly?
This may be an Impression Obsession snowman stamp - again, it was from the snippet sorting, so I don't remember. DieNamics pierced circle die; then added someWoStella sparkles on the scarf, stickles on the snow, and some Flower Soft to the hat fur.
- S/B scalloped circle for the glitter paper mat. Same paper provided the snippet strips top & bottom.
- Glitter papers were from a DCWV 12x12 pack bought years ago. These papers are a bit heavy, and make the card curl, so some weight will have to be applied to try to get this curl fixed. Don't want to flatten the Viva Décor pearl trim, though. I was so pleased to get all the little pearls just the right size. The Viva Décor pearl pen works better for me than does the liquid pearls when doing this little trick. These were done with a red pen, but white pearls can be made, let dry, then color with a copic marker. When this is done, I make the pearls on the non-stick mat, color after drying. Scoop up with a knife or pick, dab some glue, place where desired.
- Elizabeth craft sentiment sticker. These sheets are so handy when you need a small sentiment that doesn't cover up card details.

Pixie's Crafty Workshop Snippets Playground - from where I have been absent far too long! Each of the cards has some snippety bits, so I think I have an entry ticket! I miss seeing Little Parsnip (and Miss Pixie of course!). Also got a glimpse of some delicious cards already entered, so check out both these places. You've still got time to enter cards at both places!
Thanks for popping by this afternoon. We did put the porch swing back on the chains, so we're good to go with the porch setting. Hugs
*Flowers to Flourishes and Molly's Square have been having some good buys on the new 2014 Spellbinder dies recently. I'm pleased to say the shipping has been satisfactory.
