Stampendous Challenge!

CHALLENGE: Pink, cream, brown or gold..... (details below)

I made the Stampendous Blog Star Team... Wowza... What is that you ask? Well, I get to be a guest designer on the Stampendous Blog Team for three months... Whew hew for me...

I am excited about all of the new people that I will be introduced to. Now for my first blog post here is a cute little card made with SHORT ELF available here. He also has a darling little greeting, but mine was missing... Ooops... had to print one up on the computer.... not near as cute as the stamp.

Card Tips:
There are a few things on this card that I would like to point out... First of all is that fantastic white flocking that I put on their fur! Is that amazing or what...? just apply the flocking like you would glitter using a glue pen. The next detail I would like to point out is the LONG HAIR on two of the elves. Originally, the Elf had short hair (boy) and I wanted a girl elf. So, I took my .3 Copic multi-liner and doodled on some longer strands of hair... TA DA now I have two girl elves. Third Detail is the gold on the buckle and bells. That was done with a Copic Gold Spica pen. Amazing to add a tiny bit of glitz.

Be sure to leave love (comments) along the way, as you visit the blogs and Blog Gallery!

  12. Gorgeous Jennie!! Did I read somewhere that you didn't like this card? It is darling!! I hope your pup is on the mend!! Take care!

  13. Congrats Jennie! The card you made is super cute. I always love using flocking on my cards. They give the cards that special "pop." It's very clever that you added long hair to one of the elves to make it a girl. Last month I did the opposite. I did not ink up the long hair on one of my stamps of an Asian girl to make it a boy. I was pretty proud of myself. :)
