Day 29 of the 30 Days of Christmas

Today's post is one of my favorites. I wish I could capture the brilliance and shine of this card with the camera! For the Folk Art Background (#S454) I used a variation of an old favorite technique - PE Gloss from December 2005. The top stamp uses t0he Peace on Earth Stamp (#SD429), which was embossed with a Moonglow embossing powder. Both stamps can be found here: http://www.stampcamp.com/christmas.html

Tomorrow is the last day of the series. Make sure that you take advantage of the 15% discount on all stamps at www.stampcamp.com while you still can! Use the code XMAS15 at checkout. Until tomorrow-

Day 27 of the 30 Days of Christmas

Todays  I am happy to pair a non-Christmas stamp set with a Christmas sentiment to create my card.  The presents were created using the Whimsy Squared Stamp Set (#SS025). I embossed each of the squares with different metallic embossing powders, and popped them on the background.
 Both the Magic of Christmas Sentiment (#SD428) and the Whimsy Squared set can still be purchased for 15% off by using XMAS15 at checkout, until Wednesday, December 10.

Until tomorrow --

30 Days of Christmas - Day 24

Today is Day 24 of the 30 Days of Christmas. Just a quick reminder that you only have a few more days to use the 15% off coupon code XMAS15 for ALL stamps on my site.  Go here to shop and  apply your discount:  http://www.stampcamp.com/catalog.html

Today I am using a variety of stamps to create my own wrapping paper -- on these little presents. I used the Plaid (#S421), Big Swirls (#S427), Star Net (#S093) and Star Power (#S147) to create my packages. I stamped the Merry Christmas Stamp from the NEW Holidays 2 Flourish Sentiments above the gifts (#SS043).  Each of the Gifts are popped up and tied with a bow.  It a rather dimensional card, but the picture does not do it justice!

Until tomorrow...

Day 22 of the 30 Days of Christmas

Today is the beginning of the last week of the 30 Days of Christmas.  To celebrate, I have added three new stamp sets to the Technique Junkies family of stamps! There are three different sets of  flourish sentiments , and between them, all the major holidays and sentiments are covered. You can find the sentiments HERE:  http://www.stampcamp.com/simplesentiments.html
And yes, you can use the 15% discount on these new sets by using the XMAS15 coupon code at checkout at the www.stampcamp.com website.

The card below uses one of those sentiments - Merry Christmas - from the Holidays 2 Flourish Sentiments Set (#SS043). I created the wreath using the holly from the Christmas Stencils set (#S282) , and added a bird from the Little Birds set (#SS039b), a ribbon, and some gems to complete my card.
I hope you love these sentiments as much as I do -- Happy Cyber Monday!
