Final Day of White Christmas Week!

Hello and welcome to the final day of White Christmas week!  Don't forget to post on any/all White Christmas posts for a chance to win one of at least two Christmas stamp sets.  I would appreciate it if you are also a follower or email/reader subscriber.  I will draw winners when I return from CHA.

Here's my final card:

This simple card uses some Heidi Grace papers from my stash, along with stamps and inks from Close To My Heart, and heat set studs for the i-Rock from Imaginisce.  I used a technique called ghosting to create the stamped image at the bottom of the card.  Simply stamp your design with Versamark ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  Then sponge ink all around the image.  Finally, lay a scrap of cardstock on top of the embossed image and iron with a clothes iron until the embossing powder all transfers to the scrap cardstock.  Another quick & easy card that looks like so much more!

Thanks for stopping by today; I hope you will continue to visit me!  I'm afraid we got back too late tonight to post any CHA pictures, but there will be some news and goody giveaways coming up - I even managed to take second place in a mixed media challenge contest so there will be a couple of things I don't normally have coming up.  I also have a terrific small paper company that I can't wait to share with you!


  1. This is a lovely card and sounds so easy to do, which you certainly wouldn't think from looking at it. Thanks for the little tutorial. I hope you're having a wonderful time at CHA. I'd love to be able to go one of these years.


  2. I need to try out some of the things you have used here in this beautiful card, my cards have been pretty simple so far and I am ready to learn something new. Wish I was at CHA and seeing all the new products!


  3. I love the ghosting technique. It adds character to the card. Thank you for sharing all your wonderful ideas with us.

  4. LOVE THIS CARD :) Love the colors and the design :) TFS! I am a follower and would be honored if you would check out my blog at

  5. Just found via Pink Cricut. Love the cards. Will be returning to be inspired. Thanks.
