My First Holiday Cards of the Year

I wish this card photographed better as I just love the way it came out. The stamp is by Stampendous. I got it at Michael's on sale. I inked the stamp with Ranger Archival Ink in Vermillion. Then I inked the two colors of Distress Inks with a foam pad into the leaves and flowers. The sentiment stamp is by Amuse. I finished it off with Stickles accents in Fruit Punch. I think this will be my go to card for the holidays. It was extremely easy.

More Fun With Distress Stains and Stencils

Yesterday I picked up the new Distress Stains from Ranger. There are 12 colors and each one is scrumptious. I made this card using the stains, Distress Inks and a stencil by Dylusions. The lace and the button are antiques. The tissue tape is by Tim Holtz. The stamp is by Oxford Impressions. I can't remember where the photo is from. Please let me know if you recognize it.

This week I received a bunch of goodies from an online store called Eclectic Paperie.  I ordered a bunch of stuff because they were have 25% off all their Studio 490 products.  I love the new stencils and bought them all except for two that I picked up at the Stamper's Anonymous site.

This is a card I made with my new stash of Studio 490 stuff.  I used Distress Stains for the background and Distress Ink for the stencils.  The honey comb I made with the metallic Distress Stain.  The flower image was stamped with Archival Ink in black and colored with Distress markers.  I finished the card off with some Pearl Mist spray ink.
