Scrapfest News

I had a blast at Scrapfest. I attended seven workshops and I loved every single one. I'm featuring today one card that I did at Scrapfest. The stamps are from Northwoods. The company owner, Pat Niemuth, led the workshop called It's the Most Wonderful Time of the year. The card I'm featuring has the three snowmen on it and Happy Holidays (bottom card).

Pat gave us one tip for embossing. Mix black embossing powder and clear embossing powder together. This lessens the amount black flecks of embossing powder on your paper.

Of course I just had to have these adorable snowmen. Attached is a card that I completed this morning with two of those three snowmen. I let the colors of Bo Bunny designer paper drive my color choices of Copic Markers. I added some tear drops to the tree on the paper and underneath Snowbody like you message are three dew drops. The saying, Snowbody like you, is a stamp from Unity Stamp company. I'm hoping to get more cards done today and also update this blog with more of the projects I did at Scrapfest.

Have a blessed day everyone.

This past Saturday, I took the new Hero Arts Holiday card class at Archivers up north. Here are the four cards I did. I have the stamp sets and ink that were used on the cards. However, no one here in KC has the Ranger Bridal embossing powder. Neither Archiver's or several of the others stores in the area have the Bridal embossing powder that's was used on the blue card. Hopefully, when I head to Scrapfest on Thursday, the Archiver's at the Mall of America will have it. I will change that card to say Merry Christmas instead of Season's Greetings as I prefer that saying.

Hi everyone. Exciting news. I was able to attend a Copic Certification class on September 3rd and now I'm "Copic certified". I'll be adding the link to show my certification to my blog soon.

While attending the class I was introduced to digital images from Mo Digital Pencil Too studio. Since I used to e-mail and do work from home in my PJ's, I fell in love with this image. I used several techniques I learned in class on this card.
One technique was to take a piece of terry cloth put blending solution on it and then press on to the colored area that I wanted to look like terry cloth.

I also added pink flocking to the slippers.
