25 in 25: Day 14 (11-25)

Hello, hello!
Meet today’s card (and No 14 in my quest for 25 cards in 25 days).


Whipped out the November Greenhouse Society stamp set from Technique Tuesday for this one.
Used a stamping trick I first saw Tim Holtz do years ago. Put my tiny own twist on it.

Stamped the image with black ink onto a piece of Cut & Dry foam pad.

Used reinkers to color over the image. Got it allllllllllllll over the pad.

Then stamped with the faux pad onto watercolor paper and tags.

Played quite a bit and did this quite a few times. 🙂

The first few impressions were a bit on the mucky side, compared to ones I did later.

So the mucky ones didn’t go to waste, I stamped right on top of them with black ink…. just like the one on the card. 🙂 Kinda a fun way to “fake” coloring. 😉

And just for kicks, here is what one looks like on a card without the extra stamping with the black ink pad.

Still perfectly fine and OK. 😉 🙂

So that’s all I have.

Don’t miss Ashley’s Day 14 card.
See you again tomorrow.

Today’s card (7-25)

Hi all!

Meet today’s card.

I used two Christmas-themed stamp sets: the July Greenhouse Society stamp set and the new Jingle All the Way by Ali Edwards stamp set. Both are from Technique Tuesday.

I colored. Yes, pick your jaw off the floor. With markers, even. 😉

And guess what? I totally had a good time, too.
Again, pick that jaw off the floor. Fast.

To give the berries a little extra pop, I put a little bit of Stickles on top.
Surprised by how much I like the result.

By the way, I’m over on Paper Crafts Connection today, talking about trends I noticed at CHA and sharing this guy, which just happens to have been inspired by the trends.

You can see the whole thing over there.

The owl sticker, letter stickers and green and orange papers are from the Haunted Manor collection by Doodlebug. The snapshots were cut from a piece of paper from Dear Lizzy and American Crafts’ 5th & Frolic collection.

Be back later. Thanks for stopping by today.
