paper: Georgia Pacific White CS, Cosmo Cricket DP Dutch girl, SU sky blue, blue Bayou.
Ink: Stewart Superior Black, Ranger Distress Ink in China Blue and Jean
Other: Copic Marker, Airbrush system, Twinkling H2O's, Nestability Oval and Scallop Oval, May Art Ribbon, Prismacolor pencils, Orderless Solvent.
Image was stamped, colored with Copic, cut out, placed on paper teared BG wich was airbrushed first. Glitter applied. Trees were colored with Prismacolor then overlaid with Twinkling H2O's. Rest is pretty easy.
This second card of mine was something of a pet project. i just love this Penguin stamp and snowman from CCdesigns. But I felt my little guy needed a home. So I sketched out an Igloo, some snow balls, a bucket of fish and a sign post. Images were sketched out with Copic Pens to prevent bleeding when I went to color with Copic Markers. Stickles in various shades were added liberally and a little red bow was added for a splash of color. Paper colors are SU Blue Bayou, Sky, and Shimmer White. Thanks so much for stopping in.

On to these two projects. These are for my Stampers Club on Friday, which I am working on in between filling some orders which I got on Monday and which are due Friday *sigh*(can't wait for vacation lol). They are worked around the use of vellum. The first card uses the City of David stamp set which is stamped on vellum CS with Versamark and embossed in Gold. Coloring is then done on the reverse with marker to produce a stained glass effect. The vellum which was cut in standard card size was overlaid over cream confetti CS card. The vellum on reverse side has glue dots to hold it in place. Glue dots are hidden behind embossed portions. Organdy ribbon was tied behind the whole.
This second card us made to display the dry emboss technique. Big on Christmas was stamped on Vellum CS with Staz-On and then flipped over. The SNW letters were pressed with stylus tool to create a raised embossed section. Snowman was stamped on Whisper White, colored, cut and glittered and then placed over main panel with a pop-up dot. Brads were used to adhere layer to Sky later. Holes were punched and bow tied. The other layers are Shimmer White, Sky and Blue Bayou card base. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to show you some of my Craft fair projects in the coming days.

Pictured above is the disaster that is my space. It is a miracle that I can work here. Believe it or not it is cleaned up every evening and over the course of my work time becomes this again!

stamps: Hanglar and Stanglar, Magnolia, SU Fancy Flexible Phrases, SU Itty Bitty BG
Paper : Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Cryogenic White Shimmer CS, Bazzill, Basic Grey DP
Other : Copic Marker and airbrush system, Wizard Nestability Rectangle, Faber and Castel color pencils, Odourless solvent, Prima, Quickutz dies, brads, stickles, linen thread.
I started by stamping the image in black ink and then cutting it using the Nestability rectangle. I then embossed it using said Nestability, and then airbrushed it using Copic YR21. I removed the Nestability which was my mask and then colored in my image using my Faber and Castel pencils and then blended it with solvent and stumps. I added stitching around. The buckle is Magnolia and was stamped on shimmer CS and then colored in the same as the image. Everything else is self explanatory. Thanks so much for stopping by and having patience with my lack of posting time.
