CCC Week 5 – Paint

Happy Sunday, crafty friends! It’s time for a new Christmas Card Challenge, and this week, we’re passionate about paint!
Week #5
I tried something different for my card this week. I used some acrylic paint as ink when stamping my images. 
I thought the images stamped clearer when I stamped on thick card stock instead of solid designer paper. I spread a layer of ink on some scrap card stock, then stamped the images. I made sure to quickly wash off the stamps with some mild soap and water so the paint wouldn’t dry on them.
I heat embossed the sentiment, and once the snowflakes were dry, I cut them out and added some Liquid Pearls to accent them.
Other supplies: designer paper (Carta Bella), twine (Trendy Twine), snowflake stamps (Martha Stewart Crafts), embossing folder (Cuttlebug), decorative frame element (SEI), sentiment stamp (Your Next Stamp).

All of our challenges are optional…the only “real” rule is that you must create a new Christmas, Holiday or Hannukah card, then link it up on our blog so we can stop by and say hi!

It’s not necessary that you use a Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp on your card, but we sure love it when you do!

Don’t forget to visit the rest of the CCC team to take a peek at the fun and festive cards they’ve created this week: AlannaCorinneJennifer, JovitaKarenKatieLeesaLorie,MargoMichelePatStephanie…and our guest designer Mel. B.!
