Well I certainly did not plan on being gone from my blog this long, so I hope I still have people visiting.  It is no secret that everybody who owns a blog loves sharing and receiving feedback from those who visit -- otherwise we wouldn't post updates and would spend more time creating (which we love even more)!!!  So thank you to all my loyal visitors for coming back to visit and leave questions and/or comments. 

Today I am showing my swap created for Ronda Wade's Creative Convention for Demonstrators.  I hope you like!

This card features the new Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies and Jingle All the Way Stamp Set, from the new Holiday Mini Catalog.  The horizon was created using the "direct to paper technique" with various stamp pads and sponging.  I wish the Silver Dazzling Details sparkled in the picture like it did in real life, but you get the idea.

I did this card for my shoebox swap using the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set, Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits Die, Mint Macaron and Marina Mist Stamp Pads, Dazzling Diamonds Silver Glitter, 2-Way Glue Pen, Clear Embossing Powder, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, and Sponges.
These 3 cards use the same watercoloring technique for the background, just different colors.  I used the Watercolor Wash Background Stamp (applying 2 different colors directly to the stamp pad, then mist with water and stamp).  The sentiment is from the Watercolor Words Stamp Set (my favorite new sentiment set).  Very, very easy card to make -- so much so I had to make them all in different colors (not all of them shown, but 2 more below).

Until next time,
