Fizzy Moon Christmas ~

Hi there friends!  I'm bringing you a little post from iCopic again.  This one is from way back at the beginning of September!  I've been busy this past week with catching up from vacation, birthday parties, family and friends in town, plus all the work stuff.  Right now I'm taking a break from organizing at cleaning my crafty space.  We have guests and they don't want to sleep on top of paper pads! lol  Hope you had a fabulous weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!!  ;o) lyss

TGIF! Actually, I wish it were Tuesday again because that would mean I would be going camping with my little family.  We had such a good time!  I love being in the wilderness!  Hmmm, that brings a cute little stamp set from Lawn Fawn to mind…perhaps I’ll have to scrap a little page!  So many projects, so little crafty time!  lol
Anywho, I’m here today with a *new-to-me* little cutie from Fizzy Moon.  This darling little set is called Little Messages.  The sweet bear is just peaking around a very large sign that you are able to customize with all the messages included in the set – gotta love that!  I tried something new on this card.  I cut the rectangle with a die and sponged the edges with Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink before stamping the bear.  I only had a scrap of paper and wanted to make sure that he came out level and straight.  Since these stamps are clear photopolymer, I was able to line him up perfectly after all the stuff I normally do at the very end!  I also didn’t have to worry that the distress ink would smear or smudge any of my Copic coloring…this may be a technique I use in the future more often!  The sentiment really pops because it is embossed.  I always use Versafine Onyx Black ink with clear detail embossing powder for my sentiments.  They just come out so crisp and nice!
The holly paper is from the First Edition Festive Treats 6x6 paper pack.  Because of the holly theme, I created a bit of a holly embellishment using some red jingle bells and a twiggy punch.  The bells are tied into a little cluster using the Cherry Divine Baker’s Twine.  I used the twine to tie a little bow through a red button as well.  You can’t tell on this image really, but the bear has one great big button on his belly.  CUTE!  A few more details to finish him off – his paws are stamped, colored and up on dimensional foam tape, his hat trim and pom are covered in white flock and the ground is covered in polar white flower soft.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you have a super fab weekend, your fingers get all inky and your Copic tips get dry!
