Let's Be Merry & Bright! And Giveaway!

10.20.2010


Hi everyone! Tonight I wanted to share with you a fun idea for using Glossy Accents on your projects. This glossy stuff is so much fun - I just love the way it adds that bit of texture, shine, and third dimension. I based my card from Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge No. 19 that called for some stamping and a bow. From there, I added my own details...


For my stamping I used the Lawn Fawn's Cozy Christmas set to stamp that cute strand of light bulbs - don't they have the cutest little happy faces? I colored them with Copic markers then added a zig-zag stitch around my cardstock (gotta keep those papers together!). 

I decided to have a little fun, so I got out my invisible marking pen and did some free-hand drawing from felt pieces to create the snowy hill and the little snowman. I cut them out, outlined the edges with my Copic marker, dabbed some glue, and pieced them all together (not too shabby, 'eh?)!

Then, I tied some baker's twine around the card, added a cute sentiment and a little button, and adhered to my cardbase. (Now this is where the fun part comes in....) Last, I applied Glossy Accents over each bulb, let it set to dry (about 20 minutes), and voila! Shiny, happy, Christmas bulbs!


And now for the giveway...I am giving away a brand new shiny bottle of Glossy Accents and a bottle of Crackle Accents by Ranger to one lucky person (because free stuff is fun)! For a chance to win, simply become a follower of my blog before midnight, October 24. I will announce the winner on October 25. 
Good luck and thanks for stopping by!
