Inky Impressions Challenge!

Good Morning Everyone!!! Happy Christmas Eve Eve!!! Is everyone ready for Christmas???? I have a few odds and ends before our family party but overall I am ready...!!! It sure has been a really busy couple of weeks!!!! In case I don't post again until after Friday I wanted to wish everyone a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

I wanted to share a card with you that I made for this weeks Inky Impressions Challenge. This week the challenge is to add embossing heat or dry to your creation, also to add either glitter or flocking. On my card I did all three. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder called Candy Cane, I flocked her boots and her gloves, and added glitter to the snow. Hope you like what I created!!!!

Come on over and join the fun at OUR BLOG. If you don't have Inky Stamps that's okay you can still play along. If you have them why not use them!!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!

Here's the Recipe

  • Inky Impressions Stamp - Angelica's Snowman stamped in Momento Ink and colored with copics. I also added glitter, flocking, and shimmer chalk.
  • Sentiment by Inky Impressions
  • Paper - Whisper White, Designer Paper Christmas Carnival by KaiserCraft
  • Accessories - Top Note Die from Stampin Up, Sheer Ribbon, Prima Flower and Prima Center, CB Embossing Folder
