The FINAL Day of 30 Days of Christmas


This is the very last day of the 30 (or 31) Days of Christmas!  And it is the last day to get 25% off every single one of the Technique Junkie Christmas stamps!    Have you placed your order yet?

I wish you see the shimmer of the red embossing tinsel for the center ornament!  It is truly beautiful! The scan didn't do this justice, so then I took a picture of the card.   I still had some difficulty because under the light I kept getting a shadow of my phone.  In front of the window was a little difficult because it is very cloudy today.  

I used Technique Junkie Christmas Ornaments - http://techniquejunkies.com/christmas-ornaments-trio-set-of-9/ - to create this card.  I used black stock and heat embossed the three ornaments in three different colors.  To accomplish this I used my MISTI.  I put the black card stock in the corner of the MISTI.  Then I arranged the ornament stamps and closed the lid.  I used an embossing buddy over the black card stock - hence the powdery look.   I inked up the stamp I embossed in gold first with Versamark ink. Then i closed the lid and pressed.  I lifted the lid and could see not all of the stamp had the Versamark ink.  So i repeated the process.  With the MISTI the stamp was exactly where it was before so no smudging. I heat embossed with detail gold powder. I removed that stamp from the MISTI lid so no  more ink would be transferred and therefore cause a different color of embossing powder to stick where I didn't want it. I repeated those steps with the silver detail powder, and then the red tinsel embossing powder.  I stamped the greeting on a scrap of black  card stock and heat embossed with detail gold embossing powder. It was punch out of the black.  I punched out two red pieces and trimmed them so they would fit behind the greeting.

The black card stock was layered on gold text weight paper, which was layered on red car stock. 

Have a great day and get inky!

I love the sparkle Judy! I've been sadly lacking in making cards this year. I think I'd need to start in August! =)

Gorgeous. I like how you used different colours for each ball. They are on my wish list.
