CPS #84 and MORE

Remember that World Card Making Day is coming up fast and to add to the celebration I am posting a couple cards. If you have forgotten, it is this Saturday, October 4th. Both were created with the inspiration of sketches. The first one is the sketch for this week at Card Positioning Systems blog. I LOVE this sketch and I have used one of my absolute favorite paper companies right now, We R Memory Keepers.I used a black chipboard shape from Cosmo Cricket. I just love black chipboard, LOVE the contrast it gives against so many colors of papers especially this yellow I used here. To dress it up just a little bit, I coated the flower with pink Stickles. That's it, a coat of Stickles and I have some SERIOUS bling!!!
Then I also needed to play along with Kazan's Sketch #10 at 2 Sketches 4 You this week. I decided it was time to pull out some Christmas/Winter themed papers because you just have to work ahead when it comes to projects for the holidays.
These little snowmen were cut out of one of the prints by My Mind's Eye and to give them a little more punch, I coated each one with Gloss Accents by Ranger. This just gives them so much life. The littlest snowman is attached with foam tape so that I also added some dimension.
These little felt snowflakes by Creative Impressions come in white, light blue and dark blue and I got mine to fit in with the winter look by adding some of the Glitter 3-D Fashion Paint by Tulip. I love this stuff. You can find it in the t-shirt decorating department of stores like Michaels. I put a dot on each of the brads too. It is just hard to really show you the sparkle that this added.
