I am super excited to announce that the Creative Design Team has come up with another fabulous video collaboration for you! Each day during the month of October, we will be taking turns posting different Christmas card ideas. Plus, there will be a processing video for each one so you can see exactly how they are made! Before we kick off the excitement tomorrow with the first video, I thought it might be nice to introduce you to each of the Creative Design Team members and give you a link to their YouTube channel so that you won't miss any of the festive inspiration...

Distress Oxide Inks Video Series #1 - Supplies and Blending
I was honored to be asked by Close to my Heart to create a special video series on Distress Oxide Inks. I created a series of 6 videos showing different techniques and cards using these fun inks. I am thrilled to be able to share them here with you. I will share a new video each day for the next 6 days.
Today I will be talking about the different supplies that I recommend to have on hand when using the Distress Oxide Inks and I will share a couple of cards showing some basic blending techniques. (These inks blend like butter! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!!) Watch the video below to see how I made these two cards...

Operation Smile Card
We, the Creative Design Team that I am part of, wanted to highlight this stamp set called Every Bit of Wonderful to bring more awareness to this amazing charity. You can help support them by purchasing the stamp set and/or by making a donation directly on my website.
Here is the card that I made using the sweet Every Bit of Wonderful stamp (this year's OS set) and the Bright Stack which is part of the National Stamping Month promotion.
