Emma the Snow Angel

This is Tracey's (Fred, She Said) newest release of Emma. What an adorable Snow Angel! I colored her in with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and blended with Baby Oil. Inked the edge and used Aleene's Tack-it Over and Over on the edges of the Snow Angel, then when it was dry used Glamour Dust.

The blue card behind Emma is Blue Pearl Cardstock, cut out with the Mega Rectangle Nestablities, then run through the Cuddle Bug Swirl folder. Then I added some glue from a pad (still not getting the hang of this right!) and put on some Silver Dust from Duncan (leftovers from my Ceramic I also sanded the tops of the embossing down a bit with an emery board to give it a more snowy feel.

The main cardstock used on this card is an embossed metallic cardstock that I just HAVE to get more of! It is a dream to work with!

A New Emma Card from Fred, She Said!

Here is a new Winter Emma & The Chickadee - 5 COL versions from Tracey (Fred, She Said) This set comes with 5 different colored versions as well as uncolored so you can do your "own thing"I have cut her out using the Oval Nestabilities. The paper behind her is cut out using the Oval Scallop and is from another of Tracey's sets called Candle Glow Christmas Flower Set. The paper behind all that is cut out with the Mega Curved Rectangle and is my first use of a Napkin! What fun! I also used the Swirls CB folder on the Napkin. The Gingham along the bottom is another paper from the Candle Glow set. The ribbon is from my stash and the swirls were cut with a Sizzex Die and then inked with Color Box Stamp Inks. I cut them in half as they fit with my layout better that way. Lots of inking on this card and some added glitter on the napkin for some "sparkle" The text on the card says Christmas Wishes although it doesn't show up too well in the photo.

Support the Samaritan's Purse with FSS!

Here are 2 cards I have made with Fred, She Said's Poinsettia & Pineboughs Digi. For every single sale of this Digi set, Tracey will donate $2 to the Samaritan's Purse (Canadian Division). To read more about the wonderful work they do, check them out here: Samaritan's Purse
Punch used on this card is the Martha Stewart Lattice Arches I believe it is called. I also used the Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities Dies from Spellbinder. The Gold and Green papers are some that I just picked up from Hobby Lobby this past week. Green is a self sticking holographic sheet by Paper Studio. Gold is from the Paper Company. The Ho Ho Ho paper is from my stash as is the wonderful gold ribbon. I used Aleene's Tack-it Over and Over on the edge of the Poinsettia Pine Bough cut out and then used some of Martha Stewart's Micro Glitter for bling.

For this card, I used the remainder of the Gold paper left from the first card for the backing. The polka dot papers are from my paper stash. I used the Classic Scalloped Circle Small Nestabilities Dies by Spellbinders to cut out the Poinsettia Pine Bough on this card. I used the largest, then the next smallest. For the resulting ring, I covered it with Aleeene's Tack-it Over and Over, then after it had dried, used both Martha Stewart's Crystal Coarse Glitter and Glamour Dust. I added some very tiny gems to the outer edge of the green polka dot circle. The ribbons are from my stash.

Card for Jamie

I have made this card to send to a very special little girl. In early October 4 teenagers broke into her house with knives where she and her mother were sleeping. They killed her mother and left her for dead in the driveway.
I wanted to be part of the Blog Hop that is going on, but due to a personal injury, missed the deadline but I am still going to send this card off to Jamie to let her know that there are people "out there" who are thinking of her and who care about what happens to her. If you, like me, would like to send Jamie a card or would like to see other card in the Blog Hop, the check out this Blog
This card is made using a sheet that I designed called Cute Frog Get Well Card Front & 3-D Topper - Pink The card is layered on Black and Hot Pink Holographic Mirri Board with a piece of Pink Iridescent Ribbon down the side for an accent.
