Early OWH Merry Christmas Card


  • Stamp – Hero Arts “Merry Christmas Collage”
  • Cardstock – BoBunny Back to Back Dots and Bazzill
  • Crystal Stickers – Mark Richards Inc.
  • Ranger Distress Inks – Pine Needles, Aged Mahogany, Walnut Stain

Another very simple card, showcasing the collage image of this Hero Arts stamp. I used Distress Inks to color it and layered it with contrasting colors. My Christmas deadline for Operation Write Home is this week, so I need to get this in the mail to my shipper! Thank you for the visit!

OWH – Snow Much Fun


  • Stamps – Close To My Heart “Seasons and Nature: Snowflakes”
  • Stencil – Tattered Angels “Winder Crystals” Glimmer Screens Stencils
  • Ranger Distress inks – Mulled Lavendar, Iced Spruce, Seedless Preserves, Weathered Wood
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Sheer ribbon

I had fun making the background for this card with subtle layers of ink. I used the snowflake stencil with Distress inks, applying the ink with a foam applicator and blending. Then I stamped snowflakes and added the ribbon and sentiment to add dimension and pull it all together. I then layered the whole thing on a lavendar card. I created this for the Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps Snow Much Fun Challenge for the Midweek Throwdown a couple of weeks ago (a little delayed!). Thanks for stopping by.
