CTMH Created to Shine

Created to Shine is not just another “light bulb” stamp set. If you look closely, each bulb is different (aren’t we all?!) and then, of course, the sentiments are great too! I finally had a few minutes to “play” while my turkey tenderloins cooked in the oven last night. These two cards are so quick and easy!

I used the technique of “ink smooshing” that I shared over the summer in one of my Monday Motivation videos. I also shared it here on YouTube in case you missed it. I miss those videos and hope to find a way to come back in the new year — maybe on a Saturday or Sunday instead.

Anyways, back to my card! I “smooshed” some Mustard Seed Distress Oxide on my mat, spritzed it with water, and then picked it up with plastic to guide it where I wanted. I created the second card by just pick up the left over ink and placing it inside the lightbulbs. The stamp set does have two images that are designed for that. Have I mentioned how great this November stamp of the month is?

Easy-peasy as I tell my Kindergartners! Have a great weekend…SHINE!

PS. Close To My Heart carries a whole line of Distress Oxides for your one-stop shopping convenience.
