Not a Card Friday

Hi Everyone!

It's Friday so that means no card for me today.
Pink by Design is wrapping up their Challenge Week of Non-traditional Christmas Colors
(you still have through Sunday to enter your projects!).

Today I am showing one of the MANY sanitizer holders my girls and I made for Christmas gifts this year.
These are perfect little gifts for the girls' teachers, friends, and other people at school and church.
The best part-
they are super quick and simple to make!
I got the idea from THIS POST at Sarah Hamer's blog.

 PBD Stamp Sets used:
Dictionary Background, Everyday Banners, Black Friday

These also have some 3 Girl JAM ribbon: Halloween Harvest
and a Pinque Peacock Fabric Covered button (How awesome are these!)

Make sure to link up your projects at Pink by Design and 3 Girl JAM Challenges
There are fabulous prizes to be won!

Coloring with Gelatos

**Make sure to check out my 3 Girl JAM blog today- featuring Sarah Hamer:Guest Designer

Hi Everyone!

I have a fun coloring technique for you today-
Coloring backgrounds with Gelatos!

Pink by Design is having a fabulous challenge this week using Non-traditional Christmas colors.
To tie into this challenge I made a card using blues, pinks, grey, and black (ok- there's some red and green in there too!)

 PBD Stamp sets used:
Chevron Background, Joyful Tags

My background uses the PBD Chevron background stamp which I heat embossed with white powder.
I used red, green, silver, and gold Faber Castell Gelatos and let them do their magic thing and came out with my fabulous background.
