Day 15 of the 30 Days of Christmas

Welcome! Two weeks have gone by and we are halfway through the 30 days of Christmas. I have been out of town for the last 4 days, so if you missed the last four postings, you can catch up here:
Today we are celebrating the Angel Choir Stamp (#S592). I colored this stamp with regular markers, very simply in yellows, blues and gold.  Then I took the Peace Stamp from the Christmas Words set (#SS029), stamped and colored it, cut it apart and oriented it horizontally. That is what is great about those stamps -- they can be used vertically of horizontally.
Don't forget to use your coupon code XMAS15 to receive a 15% discount on all Technique Junkies Stamps!
I will be back in town tomorrow -- see you then!

Day 11 of the 30 Days of Christmas

Today's card is all about dimension!  I have this really cool window in my stamp line (SD299), and I just had this idea rolling around my head for a while to create a scene behind it. What better than a scene that evokes the warm, homey scene of little boys playing? In my head, we are Santa on Christmas Eve, waiting for the rambunctious boys to settle in for the night so that he can take his trip down the chimney...

When creating the window, I decided to cut the window piece completely, and use a stamped piece of acetate for the glass. When you peek into the window from the sides, you can see more of the boys playing:

The stamp used for the boys is called Pillow Fight (#SD324) and the sentiment is Magic of Christmas (#SD428).
Tomorrow we have a guest blogger -- see you then!

Day 10 of the 30 Days of Christmas

 It's Day 10 of the 30 Days of Christmas - How about a little color?

This card uses the Glitter Strips Technique from the Glimmer Shimmer Sparkle and Shine CD.  I paired 3 different - and unlikely - stamps for the colored panels. The red panel uses the Big Swirls Stamp (S426), The smaller green panel uses the large Porcelain Crackle Stamp; and the bright green panel uses the Chicken Wire stamp (S393). I stamped and embossed Noel from the Christmas Words Set (SS029), then I cut it apart and matted them.

Tomorrow I have a VERY elaborate card to share with you - I can hardly wait!
