Meow-ry Christmas To You

This is my post on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today HERE!

Hello, Diane with you today with  the cutest stamp set
Christmas Kitty!

Dancing Penguin 913 (sm snowflake)
Embossing PowderGold Detail EP168
GlitterTangerine GM2043
Misc.:  Memory Box Tree die,
Lawn Fawn Hillside die

To make this sparkle-y Christmas card I first started out by using Versamark

then embossing with SNS Gold Detail embossing powder.
I colored in the kitty and the lights with Copics.
Then using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and SNS glitters,
I started adding glitter, one color at a time starting from the top to the bottom
(you can see in the picture below)
so as not to contaminate my glitter colors with each other.
to do this successfully, I used the neatest glitter tool
Nuvo Craft Spoon, making it a snap to add the colors...a MUST HAVE! 
glitter colors added were 
Tangerine, Sugar Plum, Butterscotch, Gecko, Marine Blue, and Fire Engine Red.

Once all the glitters were added, I set it aside to dry for a bit, then carefully
and quickly fussy cut the kitty out.
Brush away any excess glitter with your Glitter Brush once it is dry.

I next die cut a tree and leaving it in the die,
I coated the entire thing with Dreamweavers Embossing paste.

Once the  embossing paste was done, I quickly removed the die cut
and then sprinkled on SNS Sparkling snow.
A tip is to also quickly wash away the Embossing paste from your die
as it dries very quickly.

Using a hillside stitched die, 
I cut a few 'hills', added Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive along the edges
then added more of the Sparkling Snow glitter.

I used Versamark to stamp the sentiment and embossed with 
Red Apple Embossing powder.
Using the small snowflake from the  Dancing Penguin stamp set
I stamped 3 snowflakes in Versmark and  used
Sparkle Embossing Powder. (they are better seen IRL).

To finish I added the snowy hillside, the tree, and popped up the kitty!
