Cocoa Puff

Oh my goodness, isn't this the cutest image?!?!? It's the "Cocoa Puff" image by Victoria Case which was released a couple of months ago as part of the Winter Wonderland collection. I had never seen this image until Catherine introduced me to it not too long ago.

As you may recall, once each month, the KitCat group creates a project (usually a card) using the same images/designer papers and we post them on our blogs. This month, Catherine was the hostess, and when her package arrived in my mail, I squealed in delight when I saw the wonderful kit she'd put together - especially the Cocoa Puff image.

I've colored her (with Copics) to match the wonderful designer papers that Catherine also sent. The papers are part of the Basic Grey's Eskimo Kiss Collection.

Catherine also included a piece of ribbon and two strands of fiber. I twisted the fibers together to give them a unified look and looped them around the ribbon to add some additional charm. I added a few rhinestones and a gorgeous poinsettia to give the card some extra sparkle. The image was popped up to give the card dimension.

Some other details you might notice are the Stickles I used for the poinsettia centers and the glistening snow; the Copic Spica pens I used to add some shimmer on her hat, clothing, and buckle of her shoe; and the Liquid Applique I used to create the hot cocoa in her mug. The scalloped border was made with the Stampin' UP! scallop border punch.

Be sure and stop by the blogs of my fellow KitCats and see what they've done with Cocoa Puffs. Here are the links:

Great job, J! Love how you added the poinsettia embellie to tie into the image! Drooling over how you married the fibers and wrapped them around the ribbon - genius and it looks gorgeous!
Sounds like you had fun this month, and I'm soooooo glad!
