For this project, Clare wanted to try using the Tombow marker to color Tinkerbell.  Clare loves how vibrant these markers can be and that they can also be as soft as a water color paint!  If you have every tried to cut a Tinkerbell and all of her little parts (eyes, fillagree wings, lips, etc) you may understand that Clare find cutting these tiny pieces, lifting them from the mat and gluing them too frustrating!  So she loaded the Chomas creations pen holder in her Cricut and drew the detail Tinkerbell to use as a coloring guide.  She replaced the pen holder with the blade and cut a separate Tinkerbell black out in white card stock.  She placed the pen drawn Tinker bell behind the blackout Tinkerbell on a light box and colored it with the Tombow markers.  

For the skin color, Clare blended Tombow 933, 743, 055.  For the Wings, Tink's Eyes and the large Christmas ornament, Clare used Tombow 452.  Clare is so excited to play with these markers again, because of all the water color posibilities with the control of a marker!  To keep the water content low, Clare sprayed as she worked onto a scrap piece of clear plastic and added more water as needed.  You can find lots of videos on using these markers on Youtube.  Just search for Tombow marker tutorials.  
Clare also used the Chomas pen holder for the title outline and then colored it in with Tombow 452.  She then applied Art Glitter Blue Angel to the title and Tinkerbell's wings using the Ultrafine tip.  She added a few rhinestones and a Sparkle burst brad and a Christmas Card Photo.  The top of the ornament was crimped with Fiskars paper crimper to look like a real ornament in gold card stock.

To create this card, Clare stamped and cut a Christmas tree using Northwoods Berry and Leaves Tree Stamp.  Clare applied Art Glitter dries clear glue using the Ultrafine tip to the ribbon only on the tree stamp.  She added Art Glitter 332 Red Rocket  Chunky Opaque Hologram Glitter and allowed it to dry.  She then matted it on red card stock and cut around it.  She cut a white mat and faux stitched it with a teal marker.  She matted that on some red Swiss dot card stock.  She punched the Martha Stewart snowflake border along the edge of the white card stock and adhered  the border to the back of the K & Company patterned paper.  She used a K and Company Rub on for the Joy to the World Sentiment.  She then assembled all the mats and borders.

Silhouette America Merry Christmas Title
Clare loves to stretch her stamps to make multiple images with one stamp.  For this project she used the tree stamp to create a star.  To create the star, she stamped and cut 12 Christmas trees using Northwoods Berry and Leaves Tree Stamp.  Clare cut out all 12 trees.  Using Art Glitter Ultra fine tip and Designer dries clear glue; Clare applied glue to the ribbon only on all 12 trees.  She added Art Glitter 332 Red Rocket  Chunky Opaque Hologram Glitter.  She allowed the glue to dry and using 6 trees placed them in a circle to form a snow flake, matching ribbon ends.  She adhered the trees to red card stock and cut around snowflake to form a red mat.  
Using the next six trees overlapping ribbons, she created a smaller snowflake on red card stock.  She adhered the trees and cut out the smaller snowflake.  She adhered the larger snowflake to page, and adhered smaller snowflake inside larger snowflake, alternating tree points.  Clare cut her photo in circle and placed in center of the snowflake, fussy cutting the baby’s hand and feet because they were just so sweet she could not crop them out! 
Clare created the title using a Silhouette file and the Cameo to print and cut the title.   She added the Red Rocket to the title using the Ultra fine tip as well.  She added bling in the lower right hand corner.
