On Cloud Nine Again!

Hi everyone,

I just got a couple of cards published in this month's e.mail version of Vamp Stamp News.  It was for the Watercolor markers challenge.  I brought out some old markers and using a technique from one of my Design Team members at Sparkle N Sprinkle, using outline stickers and Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter, here is what I came up with for one of my cards:

Hope you have the time to check out what the rest of the artists came up with for this challenge!

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Playful Pandas

Hi there,

Just a quick post this morning, with another Asian card.  I decided to use the cute Panda stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle, to make a masculine birthday card for an "older" Gentleman!  I recently picked up the Darice Bamboo embossing folder, which I love.  So that is what I used for my background.

I also used Sparkle N Sprinkle's Cloud Nine (Velvet Glitter) for the panda's white fur.  Unfortunately you can't feel it through the computer, but it is glitter with a fuzzy feel.  It's so versatile - check out the Tips and Techniques Section of Sparkle N Sprinkle, scroll down to Glitter - Velvet, to see some of the ways the designers have used it!

Here's the card, and the link to my gallery, if you need full directions:

Hope you're having a good day.  I'm off to hopefully put a dent in my Christmas cards!
