Pollycraft Iggy, C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps

Hiya crafty peeps!!  I have something a little different to share with you today.  I am finally learning to use my pencils!!  So this is my first attempt at an actual stamped image.  

I'm thinking it may have been better for my first real try to be on regular white but I was so excited to try the new Pollycraft Iggy on kraft because of the igloo.  I wanted the crispness of the white on colored card.

I used the Scor Tape glitter technique for the snowflakes but it's so hard to get sparkle to show well in a photo.  These white enamel dots that are a part of the Snowy Day Enamel Dots set are fabulously glittery as well.  I really wish you could see how gorgeous they are.  I want a whole sheet of just those dots!

Well I am off for some more pencil practice!  When I get the hang of it a little more I'll start listing my pencil combos like I do with my Copic projects.
Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today.  I hope you feel inspired to get crafty!

Lucy with Scarf, C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps

Hi there all you crafty peeps!!
I've been trying to make standard size cards that are flat enough to fit in a regular envelope this season.  This is much more difficult for me than it should be. 
My card today features Swiss Pixie Lucy with Scarf and the little snowman from the Meoples Yeti Fun set.

I colored my stamps with my Copics.  Here are the combos I used:
skin: E04 E11 E21 E00 E000 R21 R11
hair: E49 E47 E37 E35 E33
clothing: B39 B97 B95 B93 B91
BG75 BG72 BG10
R89 R39 R37 R35
C3 C1 C00
E79 E77 E74 E71
snoman: C3 C1 C00 B0000
E08 YR18 YR14
E37 E35 E33 E31
N8 N6 N4 N2

I think this card design would've worked out better if the long strip behind them wasn't such a busy pattern so I'll have to give this layout another try but I'm still pretty happy with it.  

Is that snowman just the cutest or what?!  The snowflake behind my sentiment is glittered but the photo didn't pick it up well. 

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit today!  I hope you feel inspired to go get your craft on.
Happy Holidays!!
