Hello wonderful friends and a Happy Thursday to you all! While you are reading this I am driving south to North Carolina for my CMC Copic On the Road classes this weekend! I'm rooming with my friend Pat Jaynes (PJ) who has been a great friend to me but this will be the first time we meet :) I always love meeting everyone in person and the classes are always fun!! Check out the CMC Road website at www.cmcroad.com for upcoming classes for the new year 2011! After I go to Buffalo, NY (still a few spots open) and Canada (sold out) next week I am done for the year until Jan. 2011!! I'll be back with projects on Monday for you, so I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Since it's Thursday I have my SCACD Try It Out Challenge for you today! I challenged the DT to create holiday/winter projects with NON-TRADITIONAL COLORS (no red, green, silver & gold)! You can see the DT projects for this challenge on the store blog HERE! Yep I cheated again, lmbo--but I only used silver as accents!! I kept my color scheme to cream, gray and gray-aqua with touches of silver here and there! I used a brand new stamp by new stamp artist Carmen Medlin for SCACD--this image is called "Purrrrfect Friends". I love me my kitties so this image just touches my heart!
I got to use bunches of new goodies on this card, hee hee, which I LOVE!! Those beautiful papers are NEW from Webster's Pages called "Waiting for Santa/Sweet Season" (they come in 6x6 size), love the colors and patterns! The fun die cut behind my main image is a new Spellbinders die called "Beaded Ovals"--love these new beaded die-cuts! Then I used my new Jumbo MS snowflake punch (and the smaller one too) to create the snowflake embellishments. I coated them with tacky glue and sprinkled that FABULOUS NEW Silver Flower Soft on them (have you seen it and the gold--awesome stuff & super glittery--a must-have for the holidays)!! The sentiment is from a new PTI set and then I trimmed my snowflakes with large pearls and smaller pearls at the bottom!
Of course she is colored with Copics (BG75,BG72,BG11,BG10/C9,C7,C5,C3,C1) and then I added lots of stickles to her skirt so it's super glittery (hey its the holiday season, bling is big)!! Another fun NEW product I used on this is the NEW Color Sparkle Fluff called "daiquiri ice" which I used on her scarf, mittens and kitty's scarf!! (5 new Sparkly Fluff Colors HERE--but this pale aqua is a must have I tell ya) I love Sparkle Fluff---it's like flock but with sparkles and is fun to touch and easy to use!! That's diamond glaze on her boots as well--I love to use it on shoes!! And the bow was made using my fave tool the Bow Easy (best tool for $5 I tell ya)!!!
Hope you enjoyed this project today--although I HATE winter I really like how this card turned out! Have a fabulous weekend and see you back here on Monday!! Don't forget to stop by the store blog HERE to see the rest of the DT's fabulous challenge projects!!
