Hi! I want to invite you to join us at 613 Avenue Create for our November challenge. As always, it is anything goes; however, the optional twist is a fancy fold! Fun, right!?!
Our sponsor this month is Conie Fong Art. This is Sally and Snowball. The image is colored with Copic markers. All pattern papers are from Echo Park I Love Winter. The snow flake die cuts are from Paper Smooches. The corner die cut on the inside is from Amazon. The sentiment on the inside is a sticker from the paper pack. I inked the edges of the paper beneath the snowflakes and main image with Tim Holtz distress ink in Picket Fence and then followed that with Dr. Ph Martin's Bleedproof White Paint. I need to work on using that nifty product! I only discovered it a couple of weeks ago. I used my handy Scor-Pal to create all the folds. If there's any interest, I listed the Copics used to color the image at the bottom of the page.
Bloggers, let's talk glitter paper. I used two types of glitter paper because I could not find where I put the pack of Darice glitter paper I purchased from Amazon. You may know how that goes! I had a red scrap that allowed me to make some snowflakes. But I wanted more and the glitter paper I did find was from another company that is known for selling glitter paper in packs of three 12X12 sheets. I have written before how absolutely awesome the Darice glitter paper is to work with! I die cut it and had to play around with it to get all the little pieces separated. No glitter on my hands, clothes, face or desk. None! Not one fleck. I worked the other glitter paper and I had glitter flying all over the place. I ended up with glitter all over my hands, under my nails, face, hair, shirt, even my pants and, of course, the desk. I swept away a small pile of glitter when I was done. I do not get any kind of compensation telling you about the Darice glitter paper. I am telling you about it because it is freaking awesome! I. Love. It. I have said it before, if it is wrong loving the Darice glitter paper, I. Do. Not. Want. To. Be. Right. :D
I found a tutorial at Whiff of Joy for this folding card. I find they have some awesome tutorials and this is one of my favorites. The tutorial called for a ribbon tie to keep the card closed and I struggle with bows so I decided to use magnets I got from Amazon instead. LoL A little bit of a nightmare I should say but I got it to work! So it is all good!
