Sledding Snow Dumpling

It is Delightful Thursday at Digital Delights.  And today I made a card using Sledding Snow Dumpling.  Isn't he sweet?  I cut him out with my Cameo and colored him with my Copic Markers. Then I attached him to the card with Action Wobble Springs from Action Wobble so he looks like he is bouncing over the snow. 

I used Bashful Blue cardstock from Stamping Up as my card base and mats.  My designer paper is from Snowflakes Digital Paper Pack from the Digital Delights Store.  My center cardstock is  a shiny white cardstock from my scraps.  I cut it out with Frame 4 Shapez Die and then I rolled it through my paper crimper.  The Corner Bow die cut is from Memory Box and the Snowflake dies are MFT Die-namics Let It Snowflake.  My sentiment is from the Winter Fun Sentiment set from Digital Delights.  My pearls are flatback pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Ribbons Fairy

I have a new look to my blog today.  I get bored with the it after a while and change it occasionally.  Only that in its self presents a problem.  Deciding on what I want.  If you have been on here in the last few days, you might have noticed that it was something entirely different.  I might change it several times before I find the one I really want.  But, I finally found it and I hope you like as well.

Today, I have a card that I am doing just for me.  It is the Ribbons Fairy from Saturated Canary.  Is she not just too cute?  I have colored her up with my Copics and glittered her wings and the edges of the SB Floral Oval die cut.  The designer paper by K & Co. has some glitter on it too.   Here is a close up of Ribbons Fairy.

I used SU Taffeta Ribbon in So Saffron for my bow and topped it with a button from Doodlebug Designs. I sure need to practice more on making bows.  I use a bow maker but they still do not turn out like everyone else's.  Well, guess I just need to practice more.  Lol! 
I also used these supplies:
Cardbase - Bazzill Cardstock
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Punches - SU Oval and Decorative Label
Rhinestones - Studio G
Sentiment - SU Petite Pairs
Ink - SU Orchid Opulence
Glitter - Stickles in Diamond and Star Dust
