Hello blog friends!!!! 

Are you ready for another inspiration challenge from The House That Stamps Built????  These are so much fun and we hope you agree.  

I was so inspired by the black cats and the moon....that I really focused on those images in my card.  

In order to get the bg layers, I first masked a "moon"...I then sponged Distress Inks in layers around it.  When I was satisfied with the sponging, I removed the mask and sponged the moon.  Then the stamping began.  Stamps used on this card are RI#1507-J "Grass Borders", #1609-J "Winter Tree", #5113-H "Cat Sil Lg" and #5116-I "Cat Sitting Sil", #2320-G Wide Pumpkin and the sentiment is #4003-F "Feline Better".   The little cat was popped up with pop dots for dimension.  

I hope you'll join the challenge.  You can find all the detail at The House.

Hello everyone!!!! 

 I'm very excited to be posting my very first blog post as a Technique Junkie Design Team Member.  Yay!!!!  I feel so fortunate to be part of such an amazingly talented group....I'm still pinching myself.

For my first blog post, I made an easy card to reproduce.  If you like to color (and I do), the focal image called "Mrs. Santa's List" is right up your alley.  I colored her with Copic Markers and used a little Viva Glitter Pen to give her collar and earring some bling, then framed her using Spellbinder Classic Oval dies. For the background I used a new background stamp called "Baubles" was so easy to do by heat embossing in Silver embossing powder.  Both stamps are from the October 2016 Release.  To finish it off, I "framed" the background layer using "Wonky Stitch" Die by Avery Elle and popped Mrs. Santa up off the bg layer using dimensional tape.  

I hope you like my card.  Be sure to check out the TJ Blog and see all the posts for loads of inspiration.
