The Christmas Crafting Groove

I am busy getting into the groove for Christmas! My table is filled with Christmas supplies as I have been working on cards from Jennifer McGuire's Holiday Thinking Inking inspiration at 2 Peas. She posts a video weekly with 3 different projects. I have been trying to learn the techniques from each video. Here is a sampling of what I am creating...

Watercolor inking techniques-

Playing with distress ink-kissing stamps

Background-inking acrylic stamp block and misting-stamping on watercolor paper

Distress ink play with embossing powders-

Double resist background

Sticky back canvas

Alcohol ink ornament

Acetate cards-


  1. Loving every one of these pieces. Especially the alcohol ink ornament. Happy week ahead...

  2. These are absolutely wonderful! I love how you watched videos to learn new techniques. I am going to have to do that too!

  3. A little birdie told me it was your birthday; hope you're having a great day!

  4. Wow! You just get better and better.

  5. Gorgeous work, Jan. They're all beautiful, but the last one knocked me out!


Thanks for leaving a makes my day
