Hello everyone!  

My post today is just a fun card I made as part of my Christmas cards this year.  I CASE'd the idea from Laura Bassen and THIS card she made.   I didn't have all of the products she used so I used what I had.   I changed up the colors and my sponging is not at all as soft and gorgeous as her's, but I liked the way it turned out.

For this card I used, Memory Box "Bubble Arch", Distress Inks, Ranger watercolor paper and Papertrey Ink, "Wet Paint Holiday"  stamps and dies.  I die cut the arch and the word "joy" in MFT, "Brushed Silver" metallic paper.    

I'm entering this card in Memory Box Challenge #19 - Marvelous Metallics.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello everyone!!!! 

There's still one more day to get that 25% off all the awesome Christmas stamps that Technique Junkies has in their store, grab them while you can and enjoy the discount!  

It's been 30 days full of inspiration and creativity by the TJDT and I've enjoyed each and every one.  

For my last post during this event, I have some bookmarks to show you and a card.

This is a front and back shot of the bookmarks.  I used some coordinating scrap pieces of design paper to cover the backs.  The stamps I used for the bookmarks is SS029 "Christmas Words" set of 4 stamps.  The technique to create them is the easy white embossed image and sponging Distress Inks over the image to create a resist. Adding some water splatters to the sponged ink gave them a "vintage" look.  I like these as card inserts for Christmas cards to special friends.  

The face on this puppy just cracks me up.  Another easy card.  The background was splattered with white acrylic paint and once dry, I sprayed with some glimmer spray. I stamped "Ho, Ho, Ho Dog" on 80# white cardstock with Archival black ink using my Misti.  In order to get a good coverage, I stamped it 3 times...I wanted him to pop right off the cs.  I made a mask and covered him while I sponged a bg with Distress Ink.  I again splattered some water and soaked it up with paper towels then heat dried it.  I decided to add some "snow" to match the red bg, so I took my white pen and dotted it in the bg.  I used Copics to color his scarf and paper pieced his hat with some red glittery paper.  To frame him, I used MFT stitched arch Stax.  As a final touch, I added some sequins to the bg and some glossy accents to his nose and eyes.

There you have it!!!!  I hope I've inspired you and I hope you don't miss grabbing youself some of these fabulous stamps.
