Today I have some cards to showcase more of those lovely little Sugarplums by CC Designs available from All That Scraps...these are digis, of course!
This little darling is Brr Emma... she can't really be cold with those fabulous sparkly earmuffs, can she? Crafty Calendar has Cold and Frosty as its challenge theme, and Totally Gorjuss has Let It Snow so I'm entering there.
Oh well, just in case it is "cold outside" I've made this card into a little treat holder; inside there's a pouch for a sachet of hot chocolate. I gave the edge of the card a gusset so it sits flat when the sachet is inside, you can sort of tell in this picture (you get a better idea of just how many foam dots I get through too, lol)
I've coloured Emma with Copics with Diamond Stickles on her earmuffs. Allsorts Challenges want us to use only two colours and Fairy Fun Fridays wants Monochromatic, using only blue and white, I think this is "only blue and white" enough!
Papertake Weekly, Divas by Design and Cute Card Thursday all have Anything Goes challenges, so I'm entering there.
I'm quite proud of my sparkly background paper; I stamped the snowflakes with Royal Blue Kaisercraft pigment ink and a little snowflake stamp that came in a sentiment set from Tickled Pink Stamps then heat embossed them with Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder... you can actually see some sparkle in the last photo in this post! As I made a piece of 12" paper, using different shades of blue and clear, I have quite a bit of the paper left too, so expect to see it again, lol. Addicted to Stamps has Snowflakes and The Pink Elephant Snowflakes and Sparkle; my snowflakes definitely sparkle, so I'm in.
I cut the image panel with Nestabilities Labels Four, embossed it with Cuttlebugs Ice Crystals embossing folder then distressed the embossing with the Royal Blue ink, adding extra around the edges. I embossed the horizontal panel with Cuttlebugs Swiss Dots folder and gave that the same treatment. I used the same again for the pouch inside the card.
The polka dot ribbon is from my stash. The sentiment is computer generated (as usual you can grab it from my Freebies page if you like it). The chipboard snowflake is from Make It Crafty... they're so hard to get out of the sheet without breaking the "legs" off, but so lovely and fine it's worth it. I painted it with Jo Sonja Titanium White then embossed it with sparkle and even added extra Stickles then a rhinestone centre: I'm tellin' ya... that thing SPARKLES!
That's it for Brr Emma, who won't be so brr after her Choccocino! I'll be back with a second post later with another little Sugarplum and her friend. Hope you pop back to check them out.
In the meantime, if you like working with digis and would like to be part of a great Design Team, All That Scraps is looking to add to their digi Design Team. If you'd like more details pop on over to the blog and check out the rest of the review, the DT call details are on the same post.
I'd love to see you later, until then Happy Crafting, Donna
