Robin Caroler

Hi everyone.  Today I'm honored to be part of SCS's All-Star Alumni CAS Challenge Team.  For the months of November and December, past CAS Design Team members were asked create a card for inspiration for one of the CAS challenges during the two months.  I was thrilled when Jen (Miss Boo) asked if I would like to join in and I quickly said "YES".  So this card for the the Nov. 18th SCS CAS challenge (CAS247 - be inspired by music).

I bought the sweetest set of digital images from DigiStamp Boutique and this is from the set.  I just love the robin caroler.  He is colored with Copics and I added glitter topped with white Flowersoft to his hat cuff and pompom for some fun and texture.  I paper pieced the carol book, and popped it up to add dimension.  A little more glitter was added to the holly, star and the bank of snow..  The holly embellishment that is on the twine is the same as the one one the carol book cover, I just increased the size and fussy-cut (again, covered with glitter).

Here's a close-up:

Stamps:  Cute Robin Collection (DigiStamp Boutique); Handy Christmas Greetings (Amy R)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); Winter Frost DP (SU!)
Ink:  Real Red (SU!); Copics:  R29, R59, E44, YG67, W4, YR24
Accessories & Tools:  White FlowerSoft, Dazzling Diamonds, Maraschino Twine (The Twinery), Stamp-a-ma-jig, glue, adhesives and dimensionals

I hope you'll join us for this fun CAS challenge at SCS.

I'm entering this into Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for November where Anything Goes.

Well, I'm sure you can imagine what a kick I am getting out of this stinkin' cute card, Lolly! I am giggling like a school girl! It is too funny and you've added all your usual brilliant design elements so the whole card stays CASlicious, but still tells a full story! Me, in awe, as always!! Hugs, Dolly

Will check out this digi company, cuz I love this little singing bird. You have a fantastic fur on his hat. My F/soft never looks this great. As always, your paper piecing is the best, and really added so much dimension to this cutie. TFS & Hugs

well this must have taken forever with all of those techniques Loll, I wish I lived close by so I could come for lessons I even zoomed in so I could see all of the festive goodness and the flowersoft is wonderfully festive and snuggly.
