Guest Designing for Craft Stampers Magazine

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by today
and I'm so excited to share with you that I'm Guest Designing at
Craft Stampers Magazine!

I won their October Take It Make It challenge with this card.
They honored me with a Winner's Profile on this post.

Thanks so much to the talented gals at Craft Stamper Magazine!

Now about this card...

I've used Iced Spruce Distress Oxide inks smooshed on a craft mat
and splash it with some mixed media paper.

This beautiful lamp post was place in my MISTI and stamped with black ink.
When the ink was dry, I stamped again with VersaMark and heat embossed
it with clear powder.

I stamped the berries in the bottom corner and clear heat embossed them too
so they would be shiny.

I decorated the lamp post with some punched greenery and a little bow
and berries.

I hope you'll join the Take It Make It Challenge at
Craft Stampers Magazine.
You could be a future Guest Designer!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
