Here is a card I made using this special set

The background was made using Brusho powders and it actually matches the card base pretty well. It just looks different in the photo. I've added some sequins to embellish the card and Stickles for some bling.

Whimsy September Release Countdown Day 4

Hey Y'all! We are one day closer to the September release and for our clear line, we have Abstract Christmas, Oh What Fun with its coordinating dies and the Winter Wonderland Word dies to share today.

Our rubber artist featured today is Crissy Armstrong. You all love her sweet penguin images and she has more for you this month along with some others. We have Penguin Sweetheart, Penguin Warm Winter Wishes, Christmas Deer, Christmas Elf and Fleece Navidad.

Here is my inspiration for today - Abstract Christmas:

The background was created using an acrylic block and Distress inks. I just smooshed on the different color inks on the block, spritzt it with a water mister and stamped it onto a panel of watercolor paper. I stamped the tree using Versamagic ink and heat embossed with gold glitter embossing powder. This is really shiny and sparkly, unfortunately hard to capture in the photo.
I stamped several sentiments from the set next to the tree and added some matching sequins as christmas tree decorations.

Thanks for stopping by and see you again tomorrow when our countdown continues.
