Pink Your Christmas

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team is sharing Christmas projects featuring stamps from the Pink Your Life collection. I used the Whisper Friends Gift Wrapping stamp for my card.

I stamped her with VersaFine ink in Onyx Black, and colored her in with Tombow Dual Brush Markers. I used a couple of Fitted Frames to die cut the colored image, as well as a mat.

The background of the card was super easy to make. I used the Fruitcake Kaleidacolor ink pad from Imagine. I simply rolled the colors on to my brayer, spritzed the brayer with some Ink Potion No. 9, (this helps the ink to move better and to blend) and then I rolled it on to my Mixed Media White Paper from Stampendous. Once it dried, I added my colored image and mat to the layer. My card base is red, and I added a line of Imagine's Tear It! Tape to the lower portion of the card, and added my all-time favorite glitter- Multi Crystal Glitter Mix. It's gorgeous. I also added a little sentiment from the Holiday Expressions stamp set.

That's my finished card. It came together nice and quick, which is super important at this time of year. Please visit the Stampendous Blog to see more Pink Your Christmas cards. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
