Happy New Year, House friends!!! 

We begin a new year, and a new month of weekly challenges from The House That Stamps Built.  

You're invited to join the challenges all month long, any time during the month.  At the end of the month, one of the entries will be drawn to win a $25.00 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions Stamps.  

To begin this month, Esther has a designer's choice challenge for us and she has selected "snow globe" as her challenge.  

I love this snow globe stamp.  It's RI#8902-L "Moose Snow Globe".  Repeat Impressions has a fabulous collection of snow globe stamps, and I'm sure you can find one you'd love to add to your collection.  The snowy background was created by stamping in white gouache for more texture using RI#8914 "Snowflake Solid (sm)", #8916-E "Snowflake Outline (sm)", #8917-I "Snowflake Outline (lg)" .   The sentiment is RI#424-G "Wishing You a Season".

I was inspired to try and create a no line coloring technique of the Moose Snow Globe with Faber-Castell Polychromos color pencils after watching a video by Debby Hughes.  I loved the process and changed a few things, such as where Debby used a white gel pen for highlighting, I used a Posca pen.  

I used a nesting torn edge die by Penny Black to frame the globe panel.  

Come on over and join us as we take Esther's challenge of "snow globe".  All the details are at The House.  

For more incredible snow globe creations please visit my team mates blogs.  They have some awsome things to show you.   

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Happy New Year, everyone!!!!  

I'm here with my stamp picks for the week of December 31.  The stamps are discounted at 20% so grab them while you can.  

The stamps I've selected for you are RI#10201-W "Flower Power Background", 10307-H "Patti's Flower Outline", #10303-H "Kathy's Flower Outline", #10313-H "Daisy Outline Large", and #2501-H "Happy Birthday From..."

Here's how I put them together on a monochromatic card.

Here are the supplies and the process for creating this card

Supplies:  VersaMark Ink, embossing buddy, card stock, vellum, scissors, embossing powder, Copic Markers (or coloring medium of you choice) and a heat gun (not shown).  

After treating a teal card stock panel with an embossing buddy, Flower Power Background stamp was inked with VersaMark and stamped on the panel.  (I used a MISTI stamp positioner).  I sprinkled white embossing powder over the panel and heat embossed it.  

The three outline individual flower stamps were stamped the same way only onto a piece of vellum paper that is heat tolerant. (Bazzill makes one).  I then fussy cut the vellum pieces.   

Here's another look at the end result after putting the card together.  As a final detail and for more dimension I used Ranger Enamel Accents. 

  Thanks for stopping by today.  Don't forget to grab these stamps while they're discounted 20% from today until Sunday, January 6.
