BYSHC Spring into Christmas ~ Day 1

Hi friends!! Who’s excited for the first day of BYSHC Spring into Christmas 2022 Linky Party? Join us by creating a Christmas, Hanukkah, or winter card and link it up on BYSHC Blog. We have some awesome sponsors with wonderful prizes this Spring. Check the blog for more inspirations and details.

For my first card, I used products from two of our wonderful sponsors. My background was created with Gina K Designs Blue Raspberry, Blue Lagoon, and Passionate Pink ink. I inked my cubes on acetate, sprayed some water on the acetate, and smooshed the ink onto watercolor paper. After it dried, I heat embossed the snowflakes from Unity Stamp Advent Calendar 2021 with Gina K Designs Embossing Ink and Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder. I die cut out the background and purple mat with Gina K Designs Master Layouts 1 Die Set.

I stamped the Unity Stamp Mug from the Advent Calender 2021, colored the mug with Gina K Designs Wild Lilac ink, and fussy cut it out. I actually added some Inkon 3 Liquid Pixie Dust on the mug, but it wouldn’t show through the photo. It is very glittery in person✨. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from Sunny Studio Merry Mice with Gina K Designs Wild Lilac Ink to match the mug color.

The Linky Party will last from April 22nd – 29th. Don’t forget to link up a card for a chance to win a prize. I can’t wait to see what you create! Come back tomorrow for another holiday card!
