I used the globe die cut and then adhered it in the right corner of the card stock. I put my 5 x 7 inch blue card stock in my MISTI.  I positioned my Santa stamp where I wanted him in the sky. I inked the stamp with black Versafine ink and used detail black embossing powder.  Then I adhered the white moon directly over the moon that was stamped.  I inked up the reindeer in front of the moon with Versafine black ink and stamped them on the moon.  Then I used detail black embossing powder and heat set it. I spritzed a starry sky with pearl glimmer mist.  The Dear Santa was  stamped with white pigment ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  


Such a fun card but it just might be a little too late to explain as Santa is in the air!

Every year when I begin my Christmas cards I want to have three aspects to my designs: 1. Simple and easy to reproduce, and 2. Beautiful, and  3. I am proud to send them to my friends and family.

I used an acrylic block with gar ink and stamped it about in the center of the top panel.  I used Technique Junkies Hillside Pines - http://techniquejunkies.com/hillside-pines/  .  I didn't stamp all of the trees -- but that is the decision of the artist, right?   Then some rhinestones to decorate the trees, and a small bow finish the card!

Come back for Day 2 tomorrow!

Mother Nature's Crayons


Many people talk about the beautiful colors of fall.  And it is true Fall can be a very beautiful time of year. So for this card I chose Technique Junkies Stamps Autumn - www.techniquejunkies.com/autumn-set-of-6/ .  It seems everyone wants to have at least one good set of beautiful leaves and verse to pair with them . This set fills that need beautifully! 

I used Twinkling H2Os to watercolor the leaves - they are so vibrant -- just like a box of crayons!  


So enjoy Fall and all of the colors that can be found.


And now for a special announcement!  Tomorrow begins the 30 Days of Christmas for Technique Junkies. From October 15 to November 15 every post on the main Design Junkies blog will feature a Christmas card.   Please come and have a look! http://techniquejunkies.blogspot.com/

Deepest Sympathy


Unfortunately, we all need to send sympathy cards now and then.  I try to have several on hand  at all times.  It seems like when I get behind in having some at the ready, then I need several all at once. 

The base card is white card stock.  The flower panel if framed in navy card stock.  I sponged blue ink for the sky and some green ink for the grass.   The flowers are a Technique Junkies stamp and I applied ink to the stamp with markers.  The name of the stamp is Daisy Garden - http://techniquejunkies.com/daisy-garden/  . I inked the stem with a shade of green and the flower in blues.  I stamped it over and over.  It is border with a dark blue card stock panel layered on the white base card.   The verse is from Technique Junkies Stamps With Sympathy - http://techniquejunkies.com/with-sympathy-set-of-5/    .  

And remember you can get an addition 10% discount with this code - TJ10Judy.

Greatest Oak


Do you ever make a card with NO idea as to how it will turn out?  That happened with this card.   I used three different Technique Junkies stamps: Vintage Botanical Oak - http://techniquejunkies.com/vintage-botanical-oak/  , Here We Go Round in Circles - http://techniquejunkies.com/here-we-go-round-in-circles-set-of-12/  , and Greatest Oak - http://techniquejunkies.com/greatest-oak/ .   I used a old Kaliedacolor ink pad to stamp the oak leaves. Then I use brown ink to stamp the circles, and black ink for the focal image.  I used Twinkling H2Os to pain the acorns.  I used little scraps of paper to border the focal image.  Then I adhered that to some brown vellum.

Have a stamping day, and get inky!!
