Joy, Peace, Love

Anything goes this week at The House That Stamps Built.  I went with a Christmas card (working on building that stash up.)  I did a Distress Oxide background with large splatter on the first one and a mist on the second one.  I also used a shimmer mist, Frost on the first card, Sparkle on the second card. I varied the design a bit also on each card.  I used Repeat Impressions: 2103-M, These three gifts.





The weekly contests now run for the entire month for a chance to win a $25 Repeat Impressions gift certificate.  We always enjoy seeing your creations and you get an extra chance to win if you use a Repeat Impressions stamp.  See my side bar for a code for a 10% discount. Details at The House That Stamps Built.

Oh Donna, I'm sure your lovely cards simply sparkle in real life. I love the way you've used the oxide inks for your oval with the sentiment and then echoed those colours with your cardstock. Great idea! The background embossing really adds a lot of dimension as well. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
