Day 1 of the 30 Days of Christmas!

Today is Day One of our annual 30 Days of Christmas event!

All of the stamps in the Christmas Category on the Technique Junkies website are 20% off from today, October 15, 2018, through Tuesday November 13. To celebrate, the Technique Junkies Design Team will be posting Christmas and Holiday cards every day to ignite your creative muse.

You can start shopping now, HERE.

Ready to get started? Here is the first card, using the Holiday Doodles and Vintage Merry Christmas stamps:

For the sentiment, I inked the Merry Christmas (words) portion of the Vintage Merry Christmas stamp and carefully removed any excess ink off the the other areas of the image before I stamped it with StazOn Jet Black Ink. To color this card, I used 4 of the Nuvo Glitter Markers; Raspberry, Morning Moss, Gold, and Silver, and then used the Nuvo Glitter Accents in Fresh Snowfall sparingly on several of the flourishes. What I love about this stamp is that you do not need to color EVERY flourish and swirl for the stamp to look great!

I hope you enjoy our 30 Days of Christmas -- and are inspired to create your own holiday masterpieces!

I used Season's Greetings (set of 6), Season of Joy, Showy Blooms stencil from A Colorful Life Designs, Color Burst (Lemon Yellow and Alizarin Crimson), Shimmering Bliss (Gold) and white acrylic paint for my tag.

I sprinkled Color Burst  (just a teeny bit!) through the Showy Blooms stencil and then used Gold Shimmering Bliss spray (instead of water) to mist the paint.

Shimmery painty fun!

I cut my tag and added some white acrylic paint and let dry completely.

I stamped the tag with Season's Greetings (set of 6) and Season of Joy

Hope you enjoyed my project!
