Aloha Guys! This is Joyce from http://enjoyscrappin2.com and today I'm sharing 2 cards using the Deck the Halls stamp set and some tips on how to get a look of glowing Christmas lights with watercoloring. This is my first Christmas card of the year, and I wanted to start with this adorable kitty. I've watercolored the kitty using Gelatos on a Classic Linen Card stock, which gave such a great texture and the glowing effect. I hope you like these cards and I'll see you next time. Thanks so much :)

How to get Glowing Christmas light effect using Gelatos
I love crafting and I love to try new things. I started off making Swarovski charms and jewelry because they were so shiny and beautiful. I was addicted to buying all sorts of crystals which cost quite a bit of money! My husband wasn't thrilled about that, lol. I then got into paper crafting and got myself a Cricut machine. Well, you can't have a cricut and not have cartridges, and we all know how pricey that can get. Now i utilize the cricut with stamping to make cards. I recently decided to get myself some copic markers along with Shinhan art brush markers and I LOVE them!!! Wow, crafting sure gets expensive. Thank goodness I'm married to a wonderful supportive husband, since he had to pay for all my goodies:) Now, I want to share my crafting experience with others like me, who love to papercraft!
