Got Joy Creations Holiday Series 2019

Hey everyone. It’s Karen from Cards Stamp’s and Ink here with you and I’m taking over Dana’s blog and Youtube channel to share in the fun of Dana’s Got Joy Creations Holiday Series for 2019. Make sure you are following this series for amazing holiday inspiration, giveaways, discount codes and don’t forget to leave a comment below to qualify for all of the giveaways. There will also be tutorials and cards shared by Dana as well and she will have a few surprises to share with you! 

Today I decided to use the Oversized Merry die from Waffle Flower! I pulled out some Yupo paper and my Deception Alcohol ink pearls from Ranger. I wet the yupo with the blending solution first and then added my alcohol ink pearls. I used an air blower to help move the ink and solution around on my yupo paper.  I decided to make a second panel since I was having so much fun! Once the ink was where I wanted it I left it to dry. Then I used the Waffle Flower oversized Merry to cut out the middle of the paper. I popped out the die cut and glued it to my card base made from 110 pound Neenah cardstock with Gina K Designs Connect glue.  I made sure to save the inner pieces of the R’s and Y so that I could use them to make a second card from the same piece of Yupo.  I added a few gems from Pretty Pink Posh and voila! 4 Christmas cards! Let me know if you decide to try this!

The GJC Holiday Card Series runs from November 17 to December 14.  Each day Dana will have a Guest Designer right on the Got Joy Creations blog sharing their holiday card ideas just like I did today. Hopefully you will find something to inspire you to create holiday cards for your family and friends this year. Follow along on her YouTube Channel and make sure you leave comments on each designer's posts or videos for chances to win.
