Challenge 1 - Thank you
Did some splattering with Distress Stain direct to paper, some stamping with grunge stamps and a big ole sentiment. I'm joining the fun over at Stampotique with this card too. Challenge #126 calls for paint splatters. Yep.
Challenge 2 - A Christmas card
I absolutely love this bloom from the Waltzingmouse Poinsettias stamp set. Decided to let it do its thing on kraft with half of a Tim Holtz sentiment stamp from the Christmas Memories stamp set heat embossed in black. Just a peek of Pink Paislee Luxe metallic CS along the side to tie in with the golden bling in the center of the bloom.
Challenge 3 - Tag it!
Claire, hope you're smiling ;))) That's the mistletoe image from Festive Foliage (and there are now matching dies for this stamp set!) on a kraft tag and wearing a ruffled skirt.
Challenge 4 - Decorate the halls (or presents or tree or both!)
Remember this technique - heat embossing multiple times and then stamping in the still-warm-top-layer? Made these as tags for presents that can later make their way onto the Christmas tree. Used some older- but-loved October Afternoon PP along with recycled packing paper on these.
Don't stay up all night, now. Sweet dreams ya'll...
