Well I've been working on this one for a while. I wanted to do an easel card but wanted to have a pop-up scene. I had an idea of what I wanted the end result to be but no idea how to accomplish it. Nothing like a challenge...hehe. Then, after I got her done, there was no sunlight to take a good picture to showcase the sparkle in the image. Oh well, I do really like how she turned out

The images are all Whoopsi Daisy. Done with Prismacolor pencils. I used homemade flock from a website (sorry I don't remember which one) for the snow and fur from a pom pom to make the fur on the jacket.  Random trees have pop foam and are covered in coarse glitter.

The sugar berries are from a Christmas pick from Hobby Lobby

Sentment on mirror board, cut with sizzix die and framed with Nestability

This beautiful angel is from Sweet Pea stamp's Rachel Anderson collection, called Snow Fae.
Colored in Copics. The snowflakes are outlined in glitter pens and blinged up with rhinestones and crystals.
Corner flower is made from a Paper Studio punch and glittered on the edges with mother of pearl leaves added.
MS around the page punch on the frame and Cuttlebug embossing folder from the Winter Wonderland Collection

The sentiment is from Paper Studio's Faith Hope and Love collection and embossed with Zing
Snowflake, colored to match is blinged up again with rhinestones and a crystal

If you ever wondered if there could be too much glitter...the answer is no. This little lady is glittered, glitter penned and finally sprayed with glitter mist. Ahh, shine on!!

The stamp seemed to come out so lightly but overall, her soft glow comes through. :-)

A Day to Remember

Several years ago, my husband bought me a camera for Christmas. The kind that has different lenses and filters. Well, I had no idea what to do with this camera but rather than seem unappreciative, I thought I'd give it a go. During this process, I fell in love with old barns and then old buildings. You know, the kind that have lived their lives and are falling apart. I thought of the histories that they had, the families, the memories. It always makes me appreciate those times. The times when things were simple and families didn't move across the world from each other because they couldn't. When we slowed down and saw the beauty around us.
I came across this image called Nell's Cottage from Beccy's place and you guessed it, fell in love. I wanted to do a Christmas card with it to reflect those simple times and to express what Christmas means to me; celebrating the birth of Jesus: born in a barn, full of love, history and memories. I am so happy with the way it turned out. Happy Holidays to all!

Colored with Prismacolors pencils
