Hello and Welcome!
It's Saturday again and that means a new theme has been posted to the Allsorts challenge blog. Mervi's turn to host and she picked the theme of Christmas Flowers. Once again we have a wonder prize to give away!
I was decluttering my craft room and came across this old Stampin Up wheel (anyone remember those?) and decided to use it for today's card.
I finally purchased a few Distress Oxide ink pads when Scrapbook.com had a sale a couple of weeks ago. They still have them at a great price if you are interested in single pads, otherwise Amazon has great deals on sets of 12, including the newest set released a few months ago.
I created ink puddles on my craft mat with Abandoned Coral and Bundled Sage Oxides and patted the paper onto the puddles to create the background.
I've always had trouble getting the Stampin Up wheels to ink up and roll properly, no different here and I am actually thinking about unmounting the few wheels I have so I can use them as traditional stamps.
I once again used the Christmas Story (Penny Black) background stamp and Bundled Sage distress oxide to add some words to the background. The single poinsettia was fussy cut from the same stamp wheel and I added Sticky Rhinestones to the flower center. Added a little bit of a border by wiping the ink pad directly along the edges, then mounted onto Stampin Up card stock. The sentiment is from the Penny Black set Season's Gifts.
