Its looking like Christmas in my studio...

A few weeks ago, Cyndi challenged us at create a layout for the Stampendous Challenges. I created another ScrapBlog layout but I felt guilty for not putting photos to actual paper so here is my layout...


I actually started creating the snowflake background with the idea of using on tags for this weeks challenge. I ended up loving the blended colors so much I decided I couldn't cut it up. I stamped the Snow Spindle Bold in Versamark and embossed with white EP. Next I blended Broken China, Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters Distress inks with a blending tool. When I was happy with it I held my breath and spritzed it with water hoping for success. The water droplets lifted off the ink and left a beautiful pattern that I loved. Next I went back in and stamped more snowflakes. The cool thing about the snowman set is you can shape the snowman. I flattened him out some so his bottom could be stamped to create hills of snow. 

supplies used: Stampendous  ( Snow Spindle Bold & Jumbo Snowman)

Here is another card I was working on this weekend. The tree has been colored for awhile but was just waiting to be made into a card. I had this extra piece of embossed blue cardstock sitting on my desk and thought it would be perfect. Glossy Accents was added to the ornaments for pop!

And I have to share what my stamping buddy up there in that top photo was working on while I was stamping. He loves Changito!
