Admiring The Star
Well judging from the comments from all of you bloggers, the Sassy Cheryl Hop was a success last week. The design team really felt the excitement and have been churning up some ideas to spark your interest in the coming months. We loved reading all of your fabulous comments and we just may have to "Hop" again with you. Winners don't you love all the prizes? Stick around, you never know what we sneaky sassettes might come up with next for you.
This little cutie is called "Admiring the Star" and it is one of the new Snowmen Cheryl has been drawing lately. Do you think he can get his little head back any farther. It makes me dizzy just thinking of looking up like that. The Sassy Cheryl Challenge this week is to use Dies or Punches on your card. I used a Marvy large and medium scalloped circle punches. The snowflakes are made with Ionic and Reflections Snowflake
I bought a new toy this week. I picked up a Copic Airbrush system. I didn't purchase the compressor. For what I will be doing I think the air cans will suffice. If I start using this in my classes then I think it will be more economical to purchase the compressor. This is my very first try and I have to tell you, it was easy peasy. Not a lot of over spray and you actually use less ink than if you tried to color the background.
To make this I printed my image twice, cutting one out. I used it for the mask and then airbrushed the background. I also used London fog Memento Ink to lightly stamp some trees for shadowing effects. The tree stamp is a Stampin Up stamp. I believe the inside sentiment is from Stampin Up also. It was left over from some Christmas cards I helped my daughter make several years ago. I think it matches perfectly don't you. That is why we never thrown anything away. LOL
My paper is from Graphic 45 -Christmas Emporium and Authentique Wonder collections. The ribbon, holly leaves, red nail heads and heart pin are from my stash. Notice the little stopper on the end of the pin? It is an earring stopper. Pretty cool huh? The green snowflake brad and the Holiday Magic sentiments are both from Bo Bunny.
I definitely need more practice with the air gun, but I was pleasantly surprised at my first attempt. Next I want to try to use my cloud template. I think that could be awesome.
Well that is all for this week ladies and gents. I have been busy as a bee making cards and things for Scrapbooks By The Sea and family events. I will try to get some time this week to post some of them. I have so much admiration for those of you that post daily with cards. I just can't seem to get it together daily.
Well enough babbling from me. You all need to pop over to Sassy Cheryl's blog and see the masterpieces my design team mates have created this week. You are going to be glad you did.
