Merry and Bright

Hi all. With Arizona being under an excessive Heat warning until Sunday, We're talking
 close to 120 degrees!!!!! what's a gal to do?
Make Christmas cards of course!!!!!  
I'm also Hosting on the 7kids challenge blog today 

While making this card I retreated to my air conditioned craft room,
   turned the ceiling fan on HIGH and pretended to be in Santa's work shop LOL!!!

The sentiment I used came from   The doodle-greetings stamp set by Tim Holtz
I embossed the sentiment with black embossing powder.
For the Background I used Distress Oxide inks in

I felt a little cooler after making this Christmas card so I guess I'll be making more before the week's through LOL!!!!  anything to keep my mind off of the HEAT!!!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy crafting :)
Hugs,
Michele

I embossed the background stamps with Glacier White embossing powder.

Better With Age

today to share my DT card
 Yesterday we started our Anything Goes Challenge for May.
And This is the card I made for the challenge

It comes with a pack of 6 Distressed Crayons 
a clear stamp set with some beautiful flowers
a mini black soot ink pad
  Acrylic Block
a paint brush 
 5 sheets of water color paper. 
 Plus a technique Booklet 
 
I stamped the background with one of the flower stamps and embossed the flowers with
Glacier White embossing powder. 


Then I used the distressed crayons with plenty of water and colored in and around the flowers just dabbing colors randomly and flicking the watercolor  until I got the desired effect.

I also embossed the saying from the Penny Black Clear Stamp Set -Birthday Love
with the same  Glacier White embossing powder.  Then I used some chipped sapphire with water to color over the saying to make it stand out a little more.

Hope you enjoy my creation!  Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to join our May challenge.
Happy crafting
Hugs
Michele
