Showcase Monday....My Top 5 Stocking Stuffer Gifts

HI all......well it's almost Christmas....it's sure coming up fast this year.....only 6 days left!!! Are you all done your shopping??? I'm still not finished, not sure where the time goes.....but I guess I had better finish up my shopping soon!!! Are you still looking to buy some stocking stuffers? Well, here's my top 5 stocking stuffers.......................and my project at the end!!!










Pick #1  Distress Inks, You can never have too many of these......I use them all the time.....

Pick #2  Distress Stains............great for covering your background or stamping with!!!


Pick #3: Perfect Pearls.............Awesome to use with your stamps and for painting!!!


Pick #4: Distressing Tool............what would I do without my distressing tool???




Pick #4: and last but not least.......Embossing Folders!!!
So here's my Project using my top 5 picks.....................



Products Used
Cardstock: White, Red and Green
Inks: Ranger Perfect Medium Black, Versamarker

First I used the Aged Mahogany stain on the white cst and then went over it with my Aged Mahogany Distress Ink. Then I stamped it with the black perfect medium and used my metallic perfect pearls on it and embossed it with the matching embossing folder, then I cut it just under the Season's Greetings. I embossed the red cst with the folder and adhered the other one over the top portion. I cut the holly leaves, the branch and the berries out with my die. I used the walnut stain stain on the branches and the rock candy paint on the holly leaves. I also used my versamarker on the leaves and berries, then I used the metallic perfect pearls on both of them. Using my blending tool, I used the gathered twigs distress ink on the leaves and twigs and then I added the bling. All that's left is to distress the edges of the card with my distress tool. Well that's it for this card..................Hope you all have a great week...........and A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!.............until next time.......................
