For my card I decided to do the resist technique and a little masking. I first I masked off the circle in the middle of my card, stamped and embossed my image, (this stamp also has several little Christmas lights that you can stamp with it or without), and sprayed my ink. After letting it dry, I rubbed the ink of the embossed portion and took off my masking.

Check out what the design team created! I'm so lucky to have these girls!
Karen show us just how flexible this set can be! She used several different spray inks to create that really cool background. And don't you just love how the deer can be used with or with out antlers! Just a really fun card.
Dana used the same swirl stamp that I used from Retro Christmas, however she used glimmer mist to highlight the different lights! Aren't those so cute? Again you can use the swirl with or without the lights! Don't you love flexible sets?
Isn't Paulina's card just too cute? She used glimmer mist on her light bulbs too, and on her rose flower! My opinion is that those small details really make a card, and this is certainly no exception.
And our guest designers this month, really rocked this set:
Jackie Solomon use of color is just so fun! Jackie joined us in using spray ink, and I just love the way she utilized the technique. I just love the great texture it brings to an already amazing card.
Heather Pulvirenti does it again with one beautiful color combo! She has used one of the background building stamps from Retro Christmas and one of the sentiments to create a really cute card! This would be a really cute one to mass produce this year!
Christina MacLaren rocked this card. I really love the colors, and how cute is that tree with the bling!
