Stampin Up Wishing You 2006 Stamp set

I created these cards using my Versafine Ink pads and embossing over this with sparkle embossing powder.  It was really fun and the photos do not show give the sparkle justice.  This stamp set has a nice verse to stamp on the inside of Christmas cards too.

Silhouette Bells

I tried a new technique for this card. I smooshed different colors of pink, lavender and blue distress inks on my craft sheet.  I sprayed just a bit of water onto it.  Then I used this as a stamp pad to pick up ink onto my stamp.  This took just a little trial and error to get the right amount of water (3 spritzes for me with my mini mister.)

This is a small card, just 4.25 by 3.25 inches.
