Fresh Brewed Designs Digi Release Blog Hop 01/13/2014

Do you know what today is? 
It's HOP DAY!!! 
We are so happy to have you here at 
 our Feel The Love Digi Release Blog Hop.

If you are arriving here from  Kim's blog, then you are right on track! 
If not then you need to skip on back to the start at Freshly Brewed Challenges. 

We have been busy creating and preparing to shower you with love this month.
 I had the pleasure of creating with the NEW DIGI
"Snow In Love" for this month's release.

Hello, today we are having a Fresh Brewed Designs Digi Release blog hop. I am using "Snow in Love" and "Love you Snow Much"- sentiment. You can find them here I made 2 cards to show you how versatile this digi is. It could also just be a Winter card.

Copics used one the first card are B000, B01, B04- blue ear muffs, Yr01, Yr04, YR09- nose.

Copics used on the second card are YR01, YR04, YR09- nose, RV02, RV06, RV09- pink ear muffs.

On both cards I used Bronze Metallic Gelly Roll pen for the arms, and Pink Metallic Gelly Roll pen for the string for the banner.

First card:
I colored the digi and then using a fine tip glue pen and iridescent glitter I added glitter to the ear muff band. then I used Glitter glue on the snow. Once dry I cut out the image in a circle to fit inside my die cut. The die cut is a Spellbinders die called Heart Circles.

The ribbon is by American Crafts- Glitter Ribbon Tape, and The American Ribbon Company- ribbon for bow.

The heart gems are by Recollections and Creatology.

The papers are by K & Company- heart print, Recollections- red, Georgia Pacific- white. 

The card is 5" x 6 1/2".

Second card:
I colored the digi. Then using a fine tip glue pen and iridescent glitter I outlined the ear muff band. Then I used Studio g glitter glue on the hearts- rose color. I used iridescent Glitter glue on the snow.  Once dry, I fussy cut out the image, and glued it to a die cut. The die cut is a Spellbinders die called Labels Eight.  I placed a Heart Circle die cut behind it. It is by Spellbinders too. Then I wrapped bakers twine by Martha Steward around the card. Made a several loop bow with it to make a snowflake. Punched out a snowflake and added a heart gem to it. I then printed off my sentiment using the Curlz font on my computer. Punched it ut added 3 gem hearts and pop dotted it to my card.

The heart gems are by Recollections- small hearts, Creatology- large heart.

Bakers twine and snowflake punch are by Martha Steward.

Circle Punch is by Recollections.

Iridescent Glitter is by Recollections, Glitter glues are by Studio g- rose, Walmart- iridescent.

Die cuts are Spellbinder dies.

The papers are by Recollections- blue, Georgia Pacific- white, Bearly Mine Designs digital paper. You can find it here- .

The card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".
