two cards to share

Here are two cards that I made for last week's "glitter" challenge over at the Hero Arts blog. I didn't get a chance to share them last week, so here they are!

I used a digital paper from the free Be Merry kit from Two Peas for the background. I colored and cut out the cute doggie from the Holiday Wishes wooden stamps to adhere it to the card. I have to admit that I don't like playing with glitter... It's just too messy to play with!! I bravely used some Martha Stewart glitter on this card... I think it would be a while before I want to play with them again.... I'll just use Stickles and glittery embossing powders from now on....

I saw a video on how to make a spinner card last winter. I think it was a Hero Arts video, but I couldn't find the video in their YouTube channel... I'll keep looking for it and will post it once I find it...

So I made Mr. Owl spin... I know it's mean, but somebody had to do it... Both the Flourish Pine and the A Lot Like Christmas backgrounds are embossed with glittery embossing powder. Mr. Owl is also covered with Glossy Accents.

Thanks for stopping by!

ingredients used:
cardstocks: Papertrey Ink, Neenah Solar White
stamps: Hero Arts
digital kit for patterned paper: Two Peas
inks: VersaMark, Memento
glitter: Martha Stewart
gem: Heidi Swapp
other: Glossy Accents

I'm partial to the dachshund (because we used to own one!) but who can resist a googly eyed owl? Love 'em both!

Oh Alice, both cards are adorable, but the dog one melted my heart! SO CUTE!! We had dachshunds growing up, so I have a soft spot for any image of them. Love him going out on a limb amongst the snow flurries! Thanks for the smile!
