Blog Hop and Day 18 of the 30 Days of Christmas!

Today we are celebrating two-fold! It is November 1st, and we are celebrating the final release of the year for Technique Junkies stamps with a blog hop. In addition, it is Day 18 of the 30 Days of Christmas -- and I am using some of the new releases to celebrate!

If you arrived here from Kathy Stacey's blog, you are in the right place! If not, I encourage you to start at the beginning of the hop. Here is the entire lineup:
Gini Williams Cagle:

The card above uses the Fresh Chevron background. I created an Ombre' effect by applying three colors of stains directly to the stamp:

The first color was applied to the top 1/3 of the stamp, directly to the rubber.
The next color was applied to the center portion, direct to stamp.
The final color was added to the bottom 1/3 of the stamp.

Spray the stamp lightly with water and stamp onto watercolor paper. Use a heat tool to dry piece fully.

The focal point of the stamp is a new November stamp called Doxie's Guilt Trip.  I just think it is the cutest stamp! I added a ribbon around Doxie's neck and added the Merry Christmas 2 stamp so the Doxie can help us celebrate the season!

Don't forget that the Christmas sale has been extended to November 12th -- 20% off all Christmas stamps! Use the word Christmas at checkout for your discount.

I hope you have enjoyed the hop today. Don't forget to go to the Technique Junkies website to get your 15% off of the November stamps!
