The blog hop starts at the Design Junkies blog.   You should have come to me from Ro Donner's blog.

My first Christmas card with the new Technique Junkies stamps uses Pine Spray and Gifts of Christmas.  I used markers direct to rubber  to stamp the Pine Spray.  I used Nuvo glitter drop to add some holly berries randomly on the card.  The ribbon really is olive, not yellow!



My second card uses Technique Junkies Seasons Greetings.  It was stamped with a dark olive green with some color added for the tips. The greeting is from Gifts of Christmas.  Nuvo Glitter drops added for berries.


My third card uses Technique Junkies Framed Poinsettia and Merry Christmas 2.   The greeting was embossed with detailed gold embossing powder. A ribbon banner was tucked under the top layer on this card.  I painted the poinsettia with Dragon Blood Technique Junkies Shimmering Bliss spray!


My last card uses Technique Junkies Brant Point Lighthouse and Gifts of Christmas.  The focal image  was colored with Copic markers.  And I sponged the sunset sky using a home made cloud stencil. The background paper is from a shopping bag from a store.

Fantastic work, Judy. I often use the Triple Play technique. It looks fabulous on your poinsettia. All your cards are beautiful but the lighthouse takes the cake. It is definitely my favourite of your cards. You rocked that sky.

I love all your cards, but especially the Triple Play on the Poinsettia Frame. And the Brant Point Lighthouse is beautiful too!
