Sponged Christmas Stamp-a-Stack

I think this Stamp-a-Stack set was one of my favourites of the year. I wasn't going to share it with you all, because the stamps have retired, but now that the Clearance Rack has been released, they are now briefly available again! You could easily recreate these with different stamps (in fact, I have!), but I do like these ones:

To create these cards, all I did was mask off an area with post-it notes (using the grid paper makes it really easy to get your mask even). Then just take a Stampin' Sponge (I prefer the larger sponges for this technique rather than daubers) and sponge the masked area in your desired ink colour. I used Wisteria Wonder, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery. For the Dasher card, I also used a torn post-it to mask off the ground and a circle to mask the moon, and then sponged the sky in Night of Navy.
The stamps I have used are Dasher (Clearance Rack price $8!), Season of Joy (Clearance Rack price $19.75!) and Tree Trimmings (Clearance Rack price $12.50!)
Here's a closer look (I spritzed with Champagne Shimmer mist for all-over sparkle):

The sentiments are from "Four the Holidays" (released on the Clearance rack 21st December). It's one of my favourite Christmas Greeting stamp sets ever...4 sentiments in the perfect size. I highly recommend you snap this one up for $12.50 on Friday!
