For the Card Base - i distressed it with artistry inks and created a dripping effect with my water brush pen. The digi image is watercoloured using Staedtler watercolour pencils and fussy cutted image is adhered to the cardbase using 3D foam tape. Finished it off by adding sentiment, sequins and glitters.
Hope you are inspired! Look forward to what you make for christmas. Link your entries to our challenge here

Hello fellow crafters, I am in the process of making about four trillion holiday cards and tags…well maybe not quite that many, but let me tell you it is A LOT. So with no further adieu, here is today’s holiday card. I used You Light Me Up set/images by Sunsational Stamps. I love how “Merry & Bright” these adorable holiday lights are!
I wanted to make another shaker card because they are so dang fun! This one I watercolored the background with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Next I stamped the sentiment on acetate with StazOn. I sponged Evergreen Bough Distress Ink onto the little frame I die cut, then attached the acetate to the backside of the frame then on the watercolor background I made a pile of shaker elements…snowflakes, sequins and large glitter flakes by WOW. I added foam tape to the back of the frame and adhered it over the watercolor background. Then I added CTMH thick twine in Fern, making little loop-de-loops and adhering them down with Glossy Accents. I wanted it to appear like a wonky sting of lights. I printed out the bulb images then cut them out and adhered them to the frame/string. I glued all that down to a card base that I embossed with a swirly pattern.
I sure hope you enjoyed todays project. Please visit http://www.sunsationalstamps.com to find this and so many other adorable holiday stamp sets and digital images. We would love it if you would like us on Facebook and click on the ‘Follow Me’ button so you don’t miss a thing!
Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today using this Gobble stamp. It's so doggone cute!!
Since I wanted some dimension, I stamped it twice and fussy cut one of the images.
I colored both with images Copic Markers. Then used glue dots to place the fussy cut image atop the main image. It gives it just the right amount of dimension. Then I added ink around the panel before matting it with cardstock.
The panel was then added to a striped card. The phrase was also matted and added to the corner of the card.
