Happy Day after Christmas! I hope & pray that everyone had a safe, happy, healthy Christmas! Our celebrations continue today and tomorrow as more family arrives, and we do some traveling ourselves to visit. So I don't know how much stamping you'll see from me in the next few days!
But today is Friday, and that means the Stamp Simply Challenge from Sharon at No Time To Stamp?. Today's challenge is to use something new you received for Christmas! Maybe it was a new tool, paper, stamps, whatever, incorporate it into your creation and share it with us! The keyword is ssnotime67. You can play this challenge, then upload your project to your blog or an online gallery, and be sure to link it to Sharon's blog so we can all see it! And don't forget to tell us what new item you're using!
My new item on this card is some Basic Grey paper I got--which I just love!! Urban Prairie has some of the prettiest patterns in the nicest colors--I think I am going to be going through this pad quickly! I just matted the two panels on cardstock for some extra punch, and then adhered my glittery heart. I stamped it with Versamark, then sprinkled it with Heat & Stick powder, heating it only until it just turned glossy. Then I sprinkled on some MS glitter and reheated it just for a second to set. My sentiment was punched out with the Word Window punch and I added a little matching bling, and I am on my way to making my Valentine cards!
Check out what the other Stamp Simply girls have done (their blogs will be updated periodically, so check back if you don't see the latest creation!): Julie, Janine, Jennifer, Tammy, Dee, Becky, and AJ. And remember, you can see everyone's creations by checking back to Sharon's blog! Have fun!
