Hello Design Team 2 and a Blog Hop

Well Laura over at Creative Clear Stamps has released some new Holiday Styles stamps. Of course all of us could NOT wait to try them out.

I used this new design paper from basic grey and for some reason since the first time I saw this stamp set I wanted to do the cracked glass technique. I used regular embossing powder and I think I am going to look into getting some ultra thick and see if that has a better effect. The stamp set I used was Holiday Sentiments.

What I love about these stamps is the crisp image. Not all clear stamps are the same and some are super picky about their inks and what level of crispness they give. Not these. I was able to ink them up and use. And using the file technique even made it better!
