Merry Monday #104 - Christmas in the City

Hello Friends,
It's Monday and that means it's time for another Merry Monday Challenge.  Karen is challenging us to use the colours of Slate, Kraft, White or Cream on your card. I decided to do a City Scape and make it a Christmas card. After stamping the main row of buildings I added another row, stamping off before adding it to the background.  I then stamped the Lovely as A Tree image in Crumb Cake and added the Washi Tape and Sentiment to finish my card. Hope it inspires you to make a Christmas card and join the rest of the "Merry Makers" this week.

Stamps: Art Impressions P2975 City Scape, S/U's Lovely As A Tree, Fruit of the Season

Mosaic Heart Anniversary!

Hi there,
Today's card is for our Son and his Wife's Wedding Anniversary this week.  I white embossed the Mosaic Heart using the stencil and Versamark Ink, then sponged Tim Holtz Distress Inks over the card.  Once it had dried I splattered water droplets with a paintbrush.  I created the sentiment on my computer, printed it out and finished off with some Silver Heart Confetti.  First time I have used my Distress Inks and Water to create a card, I love how easy it is to do and the WOW effect it creates.

I am also linking this card to Virginia's View Challenge #2 which is to use Stencils.
Card: Whisper White
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink's Evergreen Bough, Shaded Lilac, Shabby Shutters, Iced Spruce

Hope you're having a fantastic day stamping.
