More Christmas Card

I'm back with another Christmas card to share for the A Blog Named Hero's Calling all Critters challenge. I finally added a couple more Distress Oxides to my collection and couldn't wait to try them out on a Kraft card. I masked a circle and sponged with Iced Spruce and Faded Jeans and the sentiment was stamped with Fired Brick. I love how the inks stand out on kraft, especially after I spritzed with some Perfect Pearls! I made three cards and selected the best one for the blog. Thanks for dropping by!





Materials
Card - Neenah Desert Storm
Stamps - Hero Arts July kit, sentiment from an old stampset
Inks - Distress Oxides, Versafine
Others - Perfect Pearls Spray

Musing Anita Bowden

When I saw Anita Bowden's card in the current Muse Challenge, it reminded me of a technique I had not used for quite a while. I inked up random spots on the card with distress inks Scattered Straw and Abandon Coral before embossing with some flowers. I then inked up the spaces between the flowers with Peeled paint and added more embossed flowers and leaves before revealing them with the last layer of Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserve. Here is my card and thank you for dropping by!

Materials
Card - Neenah Solar White
Inks - Distress Inks - Scattered Straw, Abandoned Coral, Peeled Paint, Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserve, Versamark
Stamps - Altenew Adore you and Label Love
Others - Hero Arts Clear and Gold EP, Nuovo glitter gel, gold glitter tape from Officeworks

First Batch of Christmas Cards!

Before it starts to get too crazy this month, I thought I had better start on my Christmas cards. The challenge this month at A Blog Named Hero is to use critters! I don't have many critters stamps... surely butterflies count? I found this lovely Hero Arts deer stamp and decided to use it. I ended up making 6 cards at the same time using a simple masking technique to ink up the background with Distress inks. I added droplets of water (with my finger) to add a snowy effect. I got a variety of glitter tapes from Officeworks and they were just perfect for these cards! This was easy to make with a MISTI and can be done in batches at a time! Thanks for dropping by!

Challenges:
A Blog Named Hero - Critters
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Christmas
