Woofie's Christmas - Moving Along With The Times

Hello, friends! So glad you could visit today.
Christmas cards, of course, with an unusual seasonal greeting.
It's always fun seeing how different an image looks with a simple change in colors.

It's time to share a Project for the new Moving Along With The Times Challenge!

Challenge #84's theme is WINTER ANIMALS - for the next 2 weeks just make sure your project has winter themed animals on it and upload!

My card features the adorable Mr. Woofie, excited to enjoy his first snowfall -- after all, he IS a Florida Puppy, just visiting relatives for the Christmas holidays. (giggle)

Mr. Woofie has been colored in four shades, die cut, and coordinated with SNS Microfine glitters. These glitters are velvety smooth, and don't cover up the intricate details of the die cuts:

In the next step, I applied the frames to sticker paper:

After putting a coffee filter under the exposed panel, I applied a little glitter:

Thoroughly burnish in the glitter:

Do the same thing with each image:

Adhere the glittered panels to a white card base and select a sentiment:

Stamped with Versafine Clair Ink, clear detail embossing powder was then applied to the sentiments and heat set:

Magenta - Orchid Rose GM2016 and Purple Delight VersaFine Clair Ink:

Marine Blue GM2049 and Blue Belle VersaFine Clair Ink

Gecko Green GM2045 and Green Oasis VersaFine Clair Ink:

Day Dreamin' GM2052 and Chianti VersaFine Clair Ink:

Close Up of the images:
The sentiments were each stamped in a different color VersaFine Clair, and heat set with Clear Detail EP280. I began collecting these inks in March, and dearly enjoy them. I want to purchase the remaining 6 colors LOL - they capture the detail of a stamp wonderfully, and are easy to emboss with.

Products Used:

What a lovely set of cards Donna! Woofie in all those fun colors - what a wonderful idea! You've coordinated your coloring and the glitters so well, especially the shading of the trees! Love them all!

Bunny said...

Love all the sparkle. It's beautiful. The die is great. I had to laugh at the name Woofie because I have a bear and his name is Woolfie because he's made of Wool. [Bunny]`

Jackie Trinder said...

Each of these is beautiful with their coordinating colors. I would never have thought to apply the glitter like you did to make the bottom layer of the idea. That pup is such a cutie too! You are the queen of glitter, Donna. I still can't stand having it anywhere around.

Donna Phelan said...

What FUN projects! Love the different colors with the coordinating glitter--your signature move! That image is adorable! These are fun and festive and fantastic!!! Well done!

Great selection of wonderful cards, Donna. I love your glitter background. Thank you so much for the instructions, my kind friend. Kisses!!!

Conniecrafter said...

Oh Donna he is a little cutie and I like how he is visiting someone from up north and is enjoying the snow he doesn't see in Florida :) I love the different colors you used in them, great way to add the sparkle and such a pretty snowflake frame. Your sparkle snowflake along with the sweet sentiment top it off so nicely!

Gorgeous card DE, as always. have been away and now have the summer flu so big apologies for lack of visiting.xx

Aimeslee W. said...

Hi Donna, your cards and glittering process are awesome! Just wanted to add my kudos for the Versafine Clair inks. I have all 24 and they are delectable!! I still remember the first time I used the Noir and heat-embossed! And then, to think they air-dry waterproof, unembossed! Magic! xoxo

Pia S said...

Sparkly cuties! Great idea to make several in different colors, although they’re the same they look different. The power of colors never stops to amaze me. These cards are so pretty and sweet.
