Hello House friends!  

Today, at The House That Stamps Built, we are having another Tic, Tac, Toe challenge and we hope you'll find some time to play along with us.  

Remember, you can join all the challenges this month all month long.  Each week's challenge stays open until the end of the month.  That gives you several weeks to get in on all the challenges each month. 

This stamp, RI# 4707-P "Snow Family" is such a sweet stamp and I've seen several members of the design team using it for their Christmas cards...guess it's a favorite for all of us.  I tried some no-line coloring with Copic Markers.  After stamping the image on the panel, I stamped it again on masking paper and cut out a mask, which I placed over my stamped image.  I then drew a horizon line and sponged on "Tumbled Glass" Distress Ink to create the bg.  The bg of trees was created by stamping RI#2714-D "Sm Pine Forest" with a darker green ink.  The sentiment is RI#2203-H "May Your Heart".  I used my white gel pen to draw in some patterns on the scarves.  The shawl is decorated with Stickles for some holiday glitter.   

My card uses the center line down, Christmas, Red & Green and Glitter from the game board here.  

So, what do you say...come on over and play along with our TTT challenge and join the fun.  Need more inspiration...check out these incredible blogs of my Rock Star team mates.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you're having a fabulous week!

Hi there Junkies,

I hope you're all not tired of seeing Christmas cards yet...I love this stamp "Holly Bird"  (from the September 2017 release) and I just wanted to color him with PrismaColor Pencils on kraft cs and see how he'd turn out, and I really like it. What do you think?

The sentiment is "Merry Christmas 2" , one of my faves because of the font and the size.  After coloring the bird, ribbon and holly with the PrismaColor Pencils, I added "snow" with my white gell pen in the background as well as on some of the berries and leaves.  The sentiment was heat embossed with white ep.  

Good news!  The Featured challenge "Gradient Sponging" has been extended through January.  You've got more time now to play along with this challenge and win some TJ Stamps.  You can check out the details HERE and join in on the fun!  

I don't know how much longer the 35% off sale will last, but it's still going on for a select number of Technique Junkies Stamps.  Here's a great opportunity to grab some of these stamps at an awesome discount.
