Post Holiday Card Posting!

I've been such a bad blogger this past month. Time has just flown by since Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving, Chanukah, family parties, funerals, and a milestone (21st--not mine) birthday kept me busy and without a lot of excess energy or mojo. I did have pent-up ideas, just time and inclination didn't simultaneously occur until sometime last week. Needless to say my cards did not go out yet. I figure that I'll send 'em soon and people will just think I'm a master procrastinator.

Here's the first in a series of cards using the Santa's Sleigh image from the Holly Jolly Christmas set by Technique Tuesday. I love this set and have ideas for the other stamps in the set too.

I recently discovered that if you sponge dye ink over white metallic Recollections cardstock, the ink comes out shimmery. So I masked, reverse masked, sponged with Distress ink, and heat embossed to make the background scene. Then I stamped the Santa and sleigh image and heat embossed it in black.

All patterned papers are from 7 Gypsies 6x6 paper pads, albeit different pads. I used a Tim Holtz mask and sponged ink over it onto the map paper. I sponged ink onto the music paper to age it too. I used the music paper because I added a glittery red nose to the lead reindeer and was singing the Rudolph song while doing so.

I repeatedly stamped "Ho, Ho, Ho" with an old stamp by Hero arts with the Merry Christmas sentiment from Bombshell Stamps' Holiday Accessory set. I love that font!

Thanks for visiting!
