Pug Present

If this isn’t just the cutest little guy, ever!!! I wouldn’t mind getting him from Santa 🙂  This card was made for a swap over at the Kit and Clowder Facebook group, and when I searched to find something about my partner, the one thing that stuck out was that she LOVES her little pug 🙂  So I took it from there, and was lucky enough to find this adorable little guy, from Just Inklined.  I colored him up with my SN and Copic markers, then carefully added a holly pattern, with a small stamp, to the gift box.  I layered everything up with white CS and mirror card (which was, as always, a joy to photograph), that I’d die cut a window into.  The holly was cut with a Tim Holtz Sizzix die, and the sentiment was done with an unbranded die.  I added a red bow and some silver baubles to finish this card off.  I hope my swap partner likes it!!

Glitter Party

Sometimes, a girl just needs to go nuts with glitter. And this card is an example of one of those times for me 🙂  The image was a freebie at the Kit and Clowder Facebook group’s 15,000 member celebration, courtesy of the lovely sponsor LaLa Land 🙂  I colored Marci‘s skin and hair up with my SN markers, then decided to take a walk on the wild side and color her dress and bows, using a fine glue pen and loose glitter.  It was a bit of a challenge, as I was trying to keep all the shading as it should be, especially on the teeny bows!! (Yes, there are 2 shades of green in those suckers)  I fussy cut her out and decided to use this sketch, and technique challenge from The Sketchy Challenges, for the card layout.

The instructions are to use a mask or medium that you’ve never tried for the background…since I seem to always be trying new things, and was too broke to buy some new goodies to play with, I cracked the seal on my sticky embossing powder and used it on the background.  When it was stamped and embossed, I was really surprised at how sticky it was!!  I dumped glitter all over it, to create a sparkly background, to coordinate with the dress.  I added a strip of white ribbon, that I adhered rhinestone letters spelling Party onto, then matted it on even more glitter CS!  As it wasn’t quite glittery and glitzy enough (bahaha), I added a few sequins as a finishing touch!
