30 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS - DAY 30

Hello Junkies!!!!  

Can you believe it!  We have reached the end of our 30 Days of Christmas event. This is the last day and your final opportunity to grab any or all of the Technique Junkies Christmas Stamps for 20% off (they are already discounted...no code needed).  PLUS, if you add my personal discount code (TJ10CHERI) to your purchase, an additional 10% will come off your purchase of all TJ stamps in your cart.  That's a full 30% off TJ Christmas Stamps and 10% off all other stamps. 

Here's a super simple and easy card to make for the holidays... 



The one stamp I used for this card is "Vintage Botanical Holly".  You need to have a MISTI for this in order to stamp repeatedly in the same spot.  

Before stamping the holly image, I masked off the word "Holly" with a piece of scotch tape.  I then inked the rest of the image in a light blue dye ink, removed the scotch tape and stamped it onto my white card stock.  

I repeated this step until I was satisfied with the coverage I had of the holly.  I used a finger dauber to stamp a darker blue dye ink inside areas of the leaves.  

I completely cleaned the stamp and then using a red ink, I stamped the word. Again, using a finger dauber, I used a darker red to ink the word and moved the card on the MISTI, just a tiny bit and got a "shadow" effect.  

A warm gray Copic marker was used to create the shadow around the image.  I next outlined the holly branch with my white gel pen.  For a final touch, I sprayed the panel with Shimmering Bliss Spray Iridescent Topper (get the sprays for 10% off using my discount code).  I LOVE these sprays!!!! 

Once the panel was dry I die cut it, mounted onto a neutral card stock background then onto a card base.  For a final touch, I added red berries with a Viva Pearl Pen.  

I hope you found some inspiration here today and throughout the 30 Days of Christmas.  Don't forget to grab the Christmas stamps for 20% off and add an additional 10% off the Christmas stamps and other stamps and products from Technique Junkies Stamps using my personal discount code.
