Hellooo House friends!!!! 

Welcome to another Wednesday challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  Today we're having a Tic, Tac, Toe challenge.  You select three items from the board in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal position and create a card or project using those three items. 

From the board below, I selected the three items in the first horizontal line.  Sparkle, Penguins and patterned paper.  The stamps I chose are RI#8806-N "Christmas Penguins" and the sentiment is RI#8803-F "Coolest Christmas".   

The Penguins were stamped then colored with Copic Markers then masked off in order to sponge a dye ink background.  Once the mask was removed, I used a Nuvo glitter marker to draw around the outer edge to make a frame for the sparkle and adhered the panel to a piece of polka dot patterend paper and then onto a card base.  Very easy card to make.  For some sparkly snow, I added dots of the Nuvo glitter marker on the penguin panel.  

Come on over and play the game of Tic, Tac, Toe along with myself and my Rock Star team mates.  Detail on how to enter can be found at THE HOUSE.  

Look at the blogs of my team mates and see their incredible creations.

Hi there Junkies!!! 

Can you handle a couple of more Christmas cards?  I know you're all probably ready to see the end of Christmas card posts, so don't shoot me...I'm bringing you my last Christmas card post...PROMISE.   (But, I love making Christmas cards...I really do).

In my last few posts, I've been showing you two cards using one stamp and it's a way to get double the value for your stamps and helps cut down on time making cards.  That's a win/win.  

If you like the stamps I've used here and would like to purchase them or any others in the Technique Junkies Stamps store, please go ahead and use my personal code (TJ10CHERI) at checkout for a 10% reduction on your entire order of stamps and other products.  

The stamps I used for both of these cards are "Country Church" and a sentiment from "Gifts of Christmas Set of 5".  Country Church is a great Christmas stamp, but it has unlimited possibilities such as a wedding card, baptism, anniversary, sympathy or perhaps a birthday card for someone.  Lots of mileage can be gained from that stamp.  It's a beauty.  

To get the image results shown here, using my MISTI, I stamped the church in bright dye color inks on a white card stock panel.  Leaving the stamp in the same position on the MISTI, and without cleaning the stamp, I took a darker ink (Clair) and inked the stamp in various places along the edges and within the image itself.  Then, without cleaning the stamp again, I inked the stamp one more time with the same bright color, but just in the center area, and stamped again.  The results were stunning!!!  The inks trick the eye into seeing depth and layers of texture.    

The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink, then heat embossed with white embossing powder.  

Give this technique a try and have some creative fun.  Don't forget, you have my coupon code if you'd like some new stamps and products for yourself.
