Now for a bit about my project:

My project was created using the Grumpy Goose set.  It has so many fun sentiments with it that I had a hard time choosing which one to use!   I used the digi version of this stamp set since I wanted to change the sizing of the sentiment and make it BIGGER :-).   After printing out my image, I colored him with Copic markers and then die cut it with a (new-to-me) die set from Sizzix (Banner 3).  This set includes a lot of dies and goes from really small to really big.  There is one larger than the largest one I used for the patterned cardstock.

After die cutting the image, I added Bubble Gum glitter to his cheeks and the bell on his hat, Evening Glow glitter to his feet, and Easy Green glitter to his hat.  I also outlined the edges with a Copic marker.

The patterned cardstock is some (very old) digi paper that I have.  After using the next to largest Banner die in the set, I outlined the edges with my finger tool and Nuvo Glimmer Paste (Garnet Red).  If you haven't tried these new glimmer pastes, I highly recommend them.  They are embossing paste with lots of glittery goodness in them and they work beautifully.  I've created several projects using these and I really like them!

As I mentioned earlier, I enlarged the sentiment and then die cut it using a Taylored Expressions die (Banner Stacklets).  I added Gypsy Red velvet glitter to "naughty" by first outlining it with my small Nuvo glue pen and then covering it with the velvet glitter.  I then pop dotted this above the image.  Overall, this is a pretty quick and easy card to create and mass produce if you wanted to.

Now it time for you to visit the very talented Eret.  I know she has created something very special for you.  Don't forget to leave a comment on each of the Designers' blogs (checked for compliance) for a chance to win all SEVEN of the new sets revealed this month.

Happy Hopping,
