JB33, BLING on the holidays!




Happy Wednesday ya'll! I'm SO happy it's finally Wednesday, cuz I worked 8 days in a row this past week, and I'm needin' a break! I have off tomorrow, work Friday, and then off the weekend. WHEW! Well, enough about ole' hum-drum stuff, let's get to the real reason for this post!!


This is the card I made for this week's prompt over at Jingle Belles, BLING on the holidays! I just love all the clever titles they give to their prompts! HEE HEE!! This image is a real cutie from DigiStamp Boutique that I just HAD to have, called Rocky and Family. Isn't this little robin family just adorable? I colored them with my trusty ole Sharpies and Bics, and gave them some sparkle on the brims and balls of their hats with Stickles. After I cut the image out, I decided to make the snow they're standing in sparkle by glueing on some shaved up styrofoam ball...not very easy to work with, lemme tell ya! Maybe I just don't have mine shaved finely enough, I don't know. When I finished fighting to keep it in place, I then added some Stickles to the dots of snow in the image. If you notice, they also have some styrofoam on the fur of their boots! This is layered onto some green glitter paper I got at JoAnn Fabrics in the dollar bin (YEA!), and then layered onto a Petite Scallop Large Nestie. I decided at the beginning just to make this a teeny little card, so the back is another Petite Scallop Large Nestie. There...I hope that is enough info about this card! Just on a side note, I think I was not supposed to make this card! Either that, or I was tired, cuz I just kept dropping stuff I was trying to use on this one! Heehee! OK, enough jabber, off to get this posted and linked up! Have yourselves a great night! :)


ETA: I also just added this to the DigiStamp Boutique's August competition.

  6. Very cute card Marie! Love the idea of the shaved styrofoam! Isn't that like homemade Flower Soft? Have you tried dyeing any of it?

  7. The end result is sure worth the hassle you went through; this is really sweet and very festive. Love the twinkle on their hats (the birds are cute!) and shaved styrofoam (I've never done that and I think I'd be covered in it myself if I tried, but talk about going the extra mile). The effect works, beautifully.
