Thinking Of You

Our In Style Stamps design team is having blog hop today!  It starts at In Style Stamps here.

For my card/project today uses In Style Stamps Firefly Chloe.
My first photo is of my completed card front.  It measures 6" x 6", I used Memory Box Blackbird papers and kept my layout as clean and simple as possible to showcase Firefly Chloe and this gorgeous fall themed paper.  She's colored with Copic markers and you'll see a list of marker colors in one of the photos to come.  I used Stampin' Up! Crystal Effects on the jar of firefly's Chloe is holding to give it some shine and to make it look real.  To make the border strip I used the Stampin' Up! Spiral Border punch.
This is a photo of my card front again after I added it to my Copic coloring book.   The only difference is a pull tab at the top of the card.
This photo shows what's under the card front on the pull tab.  If you'd like to see the front of my Copic Coloring Book and read more about it, you can find it here and here.

I'd also like to tell you about a great product I got to try out courtesy of In Style Stamps.  Our design team was given a few different Glue Arts products this month to try out.  A Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro and a couple of other packages of Glue Arts adhesives.  They're really nice and work quite well.  Below is a photo of a box of cards going out at the end of the month to Operation Write Home.  There are close to 300 cards in the box, my friend Dagmar and I had an Operation Write Home card making party in honor of Operation Write Home's birthday this month.  The point of this story is to tell you we used the Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro to put all these cards together and the ones that were falling apart back together!  
Both Dagmar and I are former Stampin' Up! demonstrators so our party consisted of taking all of Dagmar's card fronts from swaps, conventions and just samples over the years and attach them to card bodies and stamp the backs with the OWH stamp.  I have more cards and Any Hero coloring pages to add to our box before the end of the month.  You can win a Glue Arts goodie pack by leaving comments for each blog post this release week on the In Style Stamps blog!
