Christmas in the Heart

Hi Y'all,
Is everybody busy creating holiday cards? Or are you just starting? Quietfire Design has a great new collection of holiday stamps for your enjoyment. The theme for the Created Byhand Challenge this week is Dear Santa.
Stamp and emboss images on white cardstock. Color with pearlescent chalks and Sakura gel pens. Cut out with Spellbinders Labels 18. The background is done using a technique called Pounced Pearls. Use small wads of plastic wrap to pick up three colors of chalk ink and press onto glossy cardstock, then dust with Perfect Pearl. Spray with Workable Fixative to set. Cut out with Spellbinders Grand Labels 11. Mount layers on silver 5x7" card. Use pop dots to mount the saying layer for added impact.

Don't forget that Quietfire Design is now giving prizes for the Created Byhand Challenge.
