Sweet Sunday 41

Here is my take on this week's Sweet Sunday challenge. It turned out to be a rather shimmery sparkly card after all was said and done and I got to use a few new nesties that I recently picked up.

Here are the details:

My shimmer blue and white paper are from Archivers. The snowman and sentiment are from Stampendous Snowplace clear acrylic set and the tree is from Recollections Winter Wonderland clear acrylic set. The background stars and dots is from The Angel Company. I colored the snowman and tree with some new copics markers that I recently picked up. I'm slowly getting accustomed to them. I added some glitter to the stars in the background, colored the star on the tree with my yellow Spica pen and added some Sparkly Fluff to the snowman's earmuffs and below the snowman and tree for snow. I love how easy that fluff is to use, even on small areas. Then I added some Kaiser red pearls to the tree for ornaments, cut out the stamped scene with a nestie, sponged the edge with Adirondack Stonewashed blue and mounted it over 2 layers of shimmer paper that I texturized with CB dots and snowflakes embossing folders. The sentiment was stamped, embossed with versa mark and SU irredescent ice, punched out with a circle punch, sponged with blue ink on the edges and backed with blue that was cut with another new nestie. I mounted both nesties with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by again. I'm off to carve pumpkins and then on to my Mojo challenge for this week.

Mojo Monday 109

Woohoo! I'm back at last! I feel like it's been forever since I've posted and guess has!!
We had a great vacation in California during the last 2 weeks of September. I've been crazy busy since I got back from vacation and just couldn't find my mojo for card making. I guess this week's Mojo sketch just inspired I needed a couple extra Halloween cards:) I hope all of you are still out there keeping an eye out for me. I hope to get back into full swing next week with at least 2 cards a week again.

Here are the details of my card:

The DP is by Reminisce. The red cardstock is SU Ruby Red. The black piece on the bottom is the reverse of the DP which I texturized with a CB embossing folder. The image and sentiment are SU. I double stamped the dog and colored him with prismacolor pencils, then cut out and popped the second doggie over the original one. I used MS's web and goo edge punches for accents (I love both of these for Halloween). I added some piercing around the sentiment and image and on the red strip below the image. Finally, I punched and popped a spider below the sentiment and added the shiny bat (from my stash) as a substitute for the bow shown on the sketch. I'm thinking of sending this to my sister with her Halloween chocolate. It would be oh so appropriate. Thanks for stopping by:))
