Holiday Hop Collaboration: Day 4

Greetings! Season's Greetings, that is! All of this week, the Stampendous and Dreamweaver teams are playing with a mix of their products, along with some wonderful, SAND-ABLE papers from Core'dinations. Join us as we sand our way to the "core" of all things Christmas and the Holiday season. ***If you are looking for my 31 Days of Halloween post, please scroll down.*** Of course, there will be prizes, and we give away the best...this time with a mix of fun Core'dinationsproducts as well. To be one of three prize package winners, follow the posted link lists each day, leave a comment, and winners will be selected from these comments at the beginning of next week. Here is what you might win: 

Here's what I'm showing off today:

I started off by stamping the pine branches from the Forest Friends stamp set. I added some flocking, but it really doesn't show. Next, I cut out the Nested Ornaments with some lovely glitter paper. I also embossed my sentiment (Happy Holidays) with my Big Shot machine, and since I used Core'dinations, I sanded it down to get that cool distressed effect.  I also added some highlights using a white pen.

Next I used a border punch...really just as an experiment, and I like the framed look that it gave the card. I added some scraps of one of my glittery papers, and some dots of Silver Stickles on the branches. A little ink around the edges, and that's it.

Leave a comment for me, and head to the next on the list:

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
