Figgy Fun!

Hi, everyone!

I had a great weekend, and I hope you did too! I have some happy news -- I was one of the runners-up in Jacksonbelle's Inkadinkado contest!! I'm so excited! Click HERE to see the winner, the runners-up, and all the fabulous entries! :)

I returned home yesterday to find out that my order from Jacksonbelle Embellishments had arrived over the weekend, so I wanted to play with my new goodies today! On this card I used BasicGrey Figgy 6x6 paper pad, BasicGrey Figgy Holiday Stickers, and BasicGrey undressed holiday chipboard. They all coordinate, making papercrafting a breeze! The stickers are a perfect match for the chipboard shapes, so all you have to do is peel off the sticker and apply it to the chipboard. Plus, the chipboard has an adhesive back, so you just have to peel and stick that, too!! This card has a simple design. The cardstock is SU! Sahara Sand and Cool Caribbean. Ink is Sahara Sand and Chocolate Chip. The swirl stamp is from Reindeer Games by C.C. Designs, and the sentiment is from SU!'s Sincere Salutations.I used two patterns from the Figgy pack, a chipboard snowflake and snowflake sticker. After applying the sticker to the chipboard, I covered it with Versamark and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. I added some distressing, a couple rhinestones, and some faux stitching with a Close to Cocoa marker, and I was finished! One more Christmas card completed!!

Thanks for visiting today -- I appreciate it SO much! I hope to see you tomorrow! :)
