The winner of the Technique Junkies “Coffee with Friends” stamp is…… Shelly Schmidt!
Shelly, please leave me your contact e-mail on this post for the best way to reach you as your comment didn’t have a website.
It’s the second Wednesday of November which means it’s time for a Designers Choice Challenge at The House That Stamp Built! Today, Cheri is hosting our challenge and she has chosen “Being Thankful” a perfect sentiment as we fast approach the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US!
As with our other challenges, we are offering a $25.00 gift certificate to the Repeat Impressions store for our random winner. Don’t forget, if you use a RI stamp, you get an extra entry! You have until Tuesday, November 15th to enter.
For my “Being Thankful” card I began by stamping “Falling Leaves #3306-I” as a background. I then stamped the “Vertical Positive Foliage #6002-M” and gold heat embossed then stamped it again popping up selected images for added dimension. My sentiment is the classic “Thanksgiving Blessings #3214-G” which I also gold embossed. I scattered Stampendous Embossed Enamel in Ochre & Gold all over the edge and finished off with the new Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Thanks Cheri for this weeks “Being Thankful” theme. This is my favorite time of the year and I really enjoyed reflecting on the memories of family and thankfulness as we move through this holiday season.
Please show us your cards at The House that Stamps Built. Happy Wednesday!
The Crafty Nurse here with a bit of inspiration from the November Technique Junkies release using “Typewriter Set of #SS064”. This tag used a variation on the “Layered Stencils” technique from Sensational Stencils CD with Tim Holtz Woodgrain & Typo stencils. The first layer was put down with Distress Stains and the second with Lava Art Anthology Dimensional Paints. I’ve taken a close up so you can see how matte and “lava like”this texture really is. If you haven’t played with the texture paints, they are so great for stenciling, gelli plating, and just all around coloring on your projects when you want some dimension.
I hope you are getting as excited as I am for the 30 days of Christmas that we’ve got planned here on the Design Team Blog beginning November 15th. See you there!
