#the100dayproject : handmade holiday card 52/100-2 : merry christmas
the inspiration wheel landed on seasonal card and so i decided to go with christmas! it's a little too late in the season for thanksgiving since it's in a few short weeks - but true winter holiday cards can be sent for the next month and a half! or even later - heck, let's spread the cheer out as long as we can!

i pulled a few colors of ink and decided to use the same stamp over and over to create a pattern that i would then add a sentiment to. moving in rainbow order [of course!] i inked up the stamp, spritzed it with water and smooshed it onto the paper. i elected to use heavy weight cardstock instead of watercolor paper which changed the end result a bit, but i like it.

since i began this project, i've been somewhat anxiously awaiting the inspiration wheel landing on the "special effect" wedge and today was the day!

i've been wanting to make an updated version of one of my all time favorite cards and while i switched it up a bit, i love the way it turned out! i used a handful of lawn fawn stamps and coordinating die-cuts because they are so happy and i love the punny sentiments that the stamp sets include.

for the second day in a row, the inspiration wheel landed on stencil as the theme. this is a theme that i am really enjoying because i have so many options! stencils really are such a versatile tool and can be altered in a variety of ways - color choice, medium used, direction, etc. while somewhat basic, they are one of my favorite tools to use when making my handmade cards.

the wheel landed on ink blending which it's done a few times already during this challenge. i decided to add in a monochromatic color scheme, birthday for the topic with stenciling and 3-d elements for detail. since i was sticking with only using one color, i decided to go light handed to heavy handed on the ink blending to get different values of the same color. [i created an additional wheel with the basic colors [red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple to help me decide on a color family to use.] that wheel landed on purple!
