Giveaway Winner...JOY Pine Branch Card

Hello and welcome,

I've contacted the winner of the November giveaway and am waiting to here from her! I'll give her a few days to respond since she lives in the Netherlands (hint, hint as to who it is!). While I can't mail her the prize since I won't mail outside the USA, I can mail it to someone she chooses as a gift from her or someone who will send it too her. I'll put her name here when I hear from her...

UPDATED: I've had to pick a new winner due to not hearing from the first one chosen so


won the Altenew cardinal stamp set! Congratulations Kristie! It's going into the mail ASAP!

One of my many Christmas cards, this one will go to my brother in Nevada. I used the Concord  & 9th JOY stamp set for the large JOY sentiment done in Tsukineko Delicata Golden Glitz then over stamped with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder heat set over it to keep that gold glitz front and center! I used Stampin' Up Definitely Decorative Pinecone in Stampin' Up Glorious Green ink for the evergreen needles and Stampin' Up Close to Cocoa pine cones and splatters. I used a Hero Arts sentiment from the Heavens Rejoice set to go around the JOY and just masked using my MISTI to over stamp it in Stampin' Up Ruby Red ink. I used the Wink of Stella pen in green glitter to draw my own pine needles over the stamped ones because I just gotta add glimmer to every card! (He'll never even notice it, I'm sure!). I mounted it on a Gina K Designs kraft card base to finish it.

Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless!

  11. Hi! New follower! This card is beautiful! I don't use my Embossing tools as nearly as often as I should ... I think I need to pull them out of my closet, dust them off, and get back into working with it!
