Hello crafty friends! I was busy making some more cards yesterday for today's craft show.  And during the event, I realized that I forgot to take photos of my new cards. Some of them I have sold already. What a bummer!  

Anyway, here's a christmas card I made using one of my favorite pens called POPCORN PENS by Kodomo.  

You basically use this pen to color your image and blast it with a heat gun. The ink just puffs like magic. And the best thing about it is that there is no waiting time.  The more you heat it, the more it puffs out.  I just love it!

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  The Paper Company, DCWV, leftovers
image/sentiment:  Inkadinkado
ink:  Tsukineko, Copic, Kodomo
tools:  Martha Stewart edge punch
embellishments: rhinestones
adhesive:  Scotch, mounting tape

Speaking of today's craft show, I bought a couple of goodies from fellow vendors.  This ornament pretty much made my day... and it was just 50 cents!

And this crocheted hat made my day even better... for $6!

We have 10 more days into our World Card Making Day celebration.  All you need to do us link your cards you have made this month.

Oh I love this card with this puffcolor, you´ve used on it. I´ve never seen that before, but it sure gives a great effect. Guess I´ll have to try and see, if I can´t find this here somewhere too. It could be sooo much fun to try this out as well. Thanks for sharing the idea Joan, and your card looks really awesome. How was the craftfair for you then? Hope it went really well. I can see you found some great things there. Love the ornament too.

Super cute card! I saw the pen at a LSS but not sure it actually worked, now I must go back and get it. TFS
