There She Goes " Mother Of All Blog Hops - 2012"

Welcome to the 3rd annual Mother of All BlogHops sponsored by There She Goes Clears Stamps!   Over the next two days, we (customers and trendsetters!) will be featuring some of our favorite There
She Goes Clear Stamp sets!  Not only that, we’re going to give YOU a chance to win some fabulous prizes!  To find out how, please go to the There She Goes’ blog and read the simple instructions.

Here's my first card made with There She Goes "Wonderful Winter Wishes" stamp set!  It is a Finger Card.  I totally adore this adorable set and didn't mind making "winter" cards during spring.  heehee


I love layering so, naturally, there's plenty here.  I used Copic Markers to color my stamped images.
Adhesive black pearls are added to the little girls' hats and a button and bakers twine helped my raised mittens look just right.  I added a bit of glitter in the "snow" around feet.



The inside has "finger" flaps that stand out when opened.  They are stamped and attached for a great looking inside.


Card 2 using the
"Wonderful Winter Wishes" uses lots of different masking, including Liquid Masking Fluid for the "snow" effect.  Again, I used Copic Markers for coloring my images and inked daubers for background!!



I punched out snowflakes and added a gem for sparkle!




I masked the phrase first, then stamped the huggers and masked them too.  Then entire card had a square mask to keep the outter edges white.  I then splattered Masking Fluid over the entire card and sponged background.  Removed all masks and wiped off liquid masking for a nice snowy effect.


 Thanks sooo much for visiting and good luck!  Enjoy ALL the blogs, such a group of talent out there!!
