Greetings Guys and Dolls! …are there any guys out there that actually read my blog? Hmmm…? Welcome to day 2 of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Chrsitmas. On the odd days of the month I will (along with over 20 other Jolly Bloggers) be sahring new stamped Christmas projects for your viewing pleasure. Today I have a card that I modeled after a few that I did during the 31 Days of Halloween. If you hopped around then, you’ll probably recognize this style. I made a clean and simple card (otherwise known as CAS), which is so not my normal style. But, I do really like the way this (and the Halloween ones) turned out. My stamp is from Inkadinkado. I swiped some Broken China Distress Ink across the bottom of the card with a cosmetic sponge first. Then I stamped my image with StazOn. Note to all of you wanting to try this. Let the Distress Ink dry first!!! The StazOn won’t ink properly if you don’t. Then I added some Stickles for a bit of glitz and dimension. Looking at the card now…I’m thinking I may go back and add some teeny rhinestones. The Holidays are all about glitz anyways, right? You can see the Stickles a little better here. I also used a Daisy D’s rub-on tape around the edge. Yes, I made it jiggly on purpose. I hope you’ve enjoyed my simple little offering for today. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, all listed on my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
