CARD - Fancy Doily Snowflake Blue



Happy Monday!  Here's a card made with Fancy Doily Snowflake and SnowFlake Paper Pricking Pattern.  Snowflake was laser printed on transparency film, coloured with permanent Bic  Mark It markers and glittered with Glamour Dust.  Gems are iridescent.. I love how they change colours in the light :)

I bought a new Magnifier Lamp a couple of weeks ago as my eyes are just not focusing anymore or for very long due to my Fuch's - can't see through either pair of my glasses and will be a few months before I get in to see my optometrist.  I don't want to be a whiny baby BUT, if any of you have trouble seeing to craft, a magnifying lamp can make a BIG DIFFERENCE when you are poking holes! LOL  ... a big help when colouring too.  I think it's my new favourite crafting tool :)

Have a great week!

Little Fat Santa Speed Paint


 Hey all!  How is the Christmas shopping going?  eeek, don't ask me!

Just a speed paint coloring demo using Corel Painter, a Wacom tablet and "Little Fat Santa" .  The only brushes I used were a Basic Round to color ( from the Tinting brushes) and a Grainy Water for blending ( Blenders category) .. and an Eraser LOL.  

Yes, I misspelled a word... can you find it? LOL I am trying to brush up on my video editing skills... forgot so much and what I did know - it was not ALOT!   Next time I'll make a speed paint video a bit more speedier ;)

I'll be back in a bit... have a few new cards to upload :)  Have a great weekend!

A Little Fat Santa & a pretty FRAME!

Hi all!

I just added a couple of things to the STORE. 

I wanted a simple little gnomish Santa to add to some cards I was making.  I just want to squeeze his cheeks and pull his beard LOL!

Little Fat Santa ( DIGI OR COL SET)


... and I wanted a CUT FILE frame for my Pointy Poinsettia Flower!  So I made 2 versions.






The frame used Wrought Iron Square Frame version 2 and  was cut from white card stock.   The main part of the frame was glue-sprayed and sprinkled with Rock Candy dry glitter before it was adhered to the base frame.  The flower is from the Pointy Poinsettia Flowers.    I am thinking I will be using the Wrought Iron Frame A LOT with my butterflies and flowers in the future  ;) ... yes I am giddy with anticipation!   ..... just have to get through "Christmas card making season"  first! LOL

Have a great day!
