OWH blog hop-Christmas cheer



The gingerbread house stamp is an old PSX stamp I picked up for $3 at St. Vincent DePaul a long time ago. I colored with Copic markers. On some parts I used a Gelly Roll Glaze pen. I used Crystal Lacquer on the rooftop dots. For the snow on the bottom I added some Clear Rock Candy Distress Stickles. The background papers are glossy. I cut out the image and popped it up.


This is a card  I posted on the OWH Facebook page a couple of months ago but not on my blog yet. The monster image is a digital image by Hope Jacare. I colored with Copic markers. I added Diamond Glaze to the teeth so they really pop. I went over the dots with a Gelly Roll Glaze pen. Just a whimsical card that I enjoyed making.

I truly enjoy making cards for our troops to send home. If it brings a smile to the face of the recipients that is a wonderful thing. Thanks to our troops for all that you do.

Your card came out cute. I have an old gingerbread house stamp in my stash but there is a lot of coloring on those and I know it's too big for an A2. They are fun to embellish. Happy hopping.
