I mentioned in the blog post title that there were a few extras and here they are... Michael and I signed up to receive a 'Black Box' about 18 months ago and last week it arrived. One of the items in the box was some sparkling apple juice so we decided to open it when I found out about my job... pretty pleased with my photo too actually:
And finally.... some cards to share! As I mentioned, on Saturday Nina came over and we did some crafting together and I made a couple of cards. I got both my ideas from Pinterest so I can't take credit for the design of the cards but I'm totally loving how they turned out.
The first card featuring some gorgeous polar bears was coloured using my brand new Zig Clean Color Markers and I totally LOVE them! I finally feel like I've got exactly what I was looking for in a marker... the vibrancy of a Copic with the ease of use of a watercolor pen. You'll be seeing me use them LOTS more in the future.
Here's my inspiration for my first card created by Debbie Olson:
And here's what I created:
- Stamps - MFT BB Polar Bear Pals
- Dies - Die-namics BB Polar Bear Pals & Die-namics Horizontal Snow Drifts Cover-Up
- Markers - Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers
For my second card I used a new stamp set from Simon Says Stamp... and it's definitely my new Christmas favourite!
