Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to this weeks Mix It Up Monday Challenge! 

This will be our Last Challenge for 2016! 

We have really enjoyed all the Challenges and seeing your creations!  

This week we are going to do a little spot lighting!  :)  

I love this technique and I hope you all will have fun doing this one!  

I will link a couple of videos below.

I used stamp Sets:

Inspiration Mosaic & Stately Flowers 1

I love both of these Stamp Set so I thought I would use them together!  :)   

I used Gina K. Designs:

*Premium Dye Ink: Black Onyx

*Gingham - Black Onyx

Colored With Spectrum Noir Markers 

Here are the two sets I used!

Looks like a fun challenge.  I will put my thinking cap on.

Oh so much fun after the Christmas rush is through. Thanks Karen.

I love cards with spotlighting on them and this one is gorgeous. Will have fun with this challenge.

Awesome card, excited to give this a try!!

This is gorg!! I totally missed seeing your challenge post with the holidays, and guess what video I just posted?? lol!

PS Thanks, Judy, for the heads up! :) 

Thank You Ladies, and Look who is in the Houuuse!!!!!  Ms. Melanie her self!!!!   LOL I'm glad your video worked with the challenge!  Great minds think alike!  ;)  LOL  

Here is my card for this weeks challenge: ~_^

Beautiful card, Karen, and a very challenging challenge for me.  I scrapped at least 2 other attempts before deciding I should stop playing with Christmas cards and get ready for Valentine's Day.  Thanks so much for hosting our MIUM challenge through out this year and keeping me motivated by your beautiful creativity.  Here's my keeper

Whoooot this is beautiful Karen! I'm sorry I missed it - feeling a bit out of sorts lately. I love your horizontal flip on the stamp base and spotlight of the flowers - wow!
