Hello and welcome, house friends!!!! 

Here we are at the end of another month of challenges from The House That Stamps Built and it's time for the Anything Goes Challenge!!! (I can hear the roar of happy crafters out there)

You still have a full week to create and join all of this months challenges from start to finish, if you'd like to get in on the big win of a $25.00 gift certificate from Repeat Impressions Stamps.  (I hear another roar of happiness out there).  

I made this card for our ATG October challenge

 I used masks to create the large white circles (bubbles) after first stamping that adorable witch face (RI#2330-G "Witch Face") and coloring it with Copic Markers inside the bubble.  Once the masks were in place, I used some spray's from Lindy's Gang to create the bg.  Once I was happy with that look, I stamped the sentiment (RI#2301-I "Best Witches...) at the base of the panel.  I had a pen cap and a couple of different sized bottle caps on my craft table, so I stamped them into black ink and used them to creat additional "bubbles" of different sizes on the panel.  I wanted additional drops of the sprays, so I just opened the spray bottles and held the sprayer above the panel and let the ink drop off in various places.  I added some clear dew drops for some dimension and more interest on the card.  

There's a lot going on here, and I don't particularly like Halloween, but this card was fun to create and looking at those faces, makes me smile.  

For details on how to play along head on over to THE HOUSE.  And you don't want to miss these talented ladies, they have some creations that will rock your creative world for the ATG challenge.

Hi there Junkies!!!  

Are you checking out the daily creations over at Design Junkies blog?  We're celebrating 30 days of Christmas.  

Each day, one of the TJ designers posts a creation using the Technique Junkies Christmas stamps.  It's been spectacular and this is day 10 so head on over and check out the new post.

In keeping with the 30 Days of Christmas celebration, here's a card I created using "Hillside Pines" and "All Is Calm All Is Bright".

On a navy blue card stock layer, I stamped the "Hillside Pines" stamp in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed clear ep over it.  I then took Brilliance In (Blue Ice) and dragged it across the image giving it the "snowy" bg.  White paint was flicked across the panel for a snow fall effect.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with silver ep.  I used a Nuvo silver glitter marker to outline the sentiment piece. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and here is my discount code if you'd like to grab yourself some of those fabulous Technique Junkie Christmas Stamps for 30% off.
