And now to the projects....


GlitteryPoinsettia_ChariMoss

My first two cards use dies from the new Poinsettia and Pine die set. Both cards use the same technique of coloring microfine glitter with copic markers.

GlitteryPoinsettia_ChariMoss_detail

For this technique I applied Stick It adhesive sheets to some white cardstock and then die cut the pieces.  After they were cut I could remove the liner paper exposing the adhesive and then add the glitter.  After rubbing the glitter into the paper I could then add the color with the markers.  When doing this technique I am careful not to color with too much pressure, typically I do more of a stipple type coloring to be sure to keep the nibs of my markers from getting damaged.  The sentiment is stamped with gold Delicata ink and I added some gold splatters using Tarnished Brass Distress spray. I added some fossilzed amber distress ink behind the center of the flower.

GlitteryPine_ChariMoss

This card uses the same technique and has some clear gems and peppermint twine for embellishment.

TisTheSeason_ChariMoss

My final cards feature the new Tis The Season dies.  That's right now you can die cut these fun images. One of my favorite things about dies is their ability to cut different surfaces so of course that is exactly what I did.  I stamped both images with archival ink.  The sweater was stamped on wool felt and the gingerbread man on cork.  I love that the dies cut each image out perfectly.  I added some hand stitching over the tree on the sweater and added a star gem for embellishment.

Next head over and visiCarolyn PeelerHappy hoppin’!
