Fun and Cute Challenge

This is a card created for Moxie Fab Worlds Fun and Cute Challenge:
I tried a few new things on this card, and I love how they came out. This hat is from the Sock Monkey Accessories stamp set. I stamped the hat in black ink, and colored the center part of the hat with a Ruby Red Marker. For the bottom part of the hat and the pom pom, I used Tombow adhesive in between the black lines, and then used Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. The glue combined with the embossing powder created a puffy iridescent look that highlighted the hat, and gave it a fun look.

The hat was backed a piece of Ruby Red cardstock cut with the scallop punch. I rubbed the cardstock with VersaMark, and then used a combination of Iridescent Ice and Glassy Glaze Enamel Embossing Powder to give the sparkle look, but also to subdue the red color.

I used DSP from the holiday lounge set, and finished the card with a piece of red ribbon.

Welcome to my site!!

I recently moved to Arizona a couple months ago, and am very happily settling into a new career. I was introduced to stamping over 10 years ago. I've always been into crafts, and picked back up with stamping a couple years ago. I love that I finally have the time to dedicate to my crafts, and that I'm able to share my ideas with everyone. I've seen myself grow in my creativity over the past couple years, and to those who say that they are not creative - don't believe it. Anyone can do this, and creativity doesn't happen overnight, it evolves as you learn more and more about the art of stamping. My husband is incredibly supportive as I put more time into my stamp designs and my scrapbooking.
