A Clingy Mix for The Project Bin

Hello there!!!  I am still dashing off Christmas cards how about you??
Today I am featuring the Luke 2 stamp set from The Project Bin.  Before I got inky for today's project, I checked out the MIX202 challenge at Splitcoaststampers and learned a new technique using cling wrap!

Lydia posted a fabulous video to show us how to create this sparkling background.  On a bit of cling wrap larger than the watercolor paper, I sprinkled Brushos Color Crystals then spritzed the crystal powder with a shimmer spray. Next, I flipped over the card and scrunched the cling wrap.  Lydia says the next part is "very hard to do but we must let it completely dry naturally" (no heat gun, no lifting off the cling wrap and peeking!) It would have been super hard for me to follow this part of the instructions but it was time to leave the house to meet with my friend to celebrate our birthdays, (we share the same name AND we were born on the same day in December! How fun is that?)  so my project dried naturally!

For the past few weeks, I have been showcasing the beautiful sentiments and verses from the Luke 2 stamp set but there is much more than just Christmas stamps in The Project Bin store!  I hope you will hop on over and check out the fun selection of clear stamps and snappy sentiments including the brand new stamp and die set, "In My Heart"!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

  1. So pretty. I agree with the hard part. Lol. This turned out delightful.

  3. What a neat background you got out of the clingwrap. It's just.... I don't even know but it's perfect. Awesome card!
