I used a new stamp that is from Eat Cake Graphics. I just had to have it! It was so fun to color with my Copics and sponge with SU! inks. I use blue/grey, black and heavy white card stock. For sparkle, I used my old standby, Diamond Stickles and Rangers Enamel Accents for my dimensional snowflakes and the pups nose. The punched border is one I found at Mike's from E.K.Success and then inked with Old Olive. I added a glittered snowflake and gem. What do you think?
I would like to enter this in the following:

Okay, time to shower and get some banana bread in the oven! I have 3 brown bananas staring at me. Hmmmmm.... might need to turn these into early gifts. Have a great day!

My white card base was was run through the Cuttlebug with a holiday EF. I added a couple of strips of thin red cs. I highlighted a few of the embossed words rows with Poppy Parade ink from SU!. I used the Embroidered Floral corner punch for my larger circle. Isn't it cool how it comes out looking like a star? My center circle uses the Scroll Lace corner punch. I layered them and added a MM poinsettia to the center. My ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. My only stamp is from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3353 Cardinal Family PreCut Set, and colored with Copics. For accents I used Stickles, MS Branch punches, and sticky pearls.

Okay, today I have a birthday card that I created using Heartfelt Creation stamps. My dp is from Cosmo Cricket. I then stamped leaves from HCPC 2254 Leafy Swirls PreCut Set with Memento Rich Cocoa ink directly onto the dp. They were colored with YG91 Putty, Copic Marker. The reverse side of my dp is a solid rusty/reddish rose. I used that side to stamp assorted daisies from my HCPC 3318 Daisy Patch Flowers PreCut Set in Versamark. I then added gold detail EP and heated. The centers of my flowers, were colored with Lipstick Red Copic R29, and then covered in Glossy Accents. They were cut and popped over the leaves. My happy birthday is from an EF, since neither of my Heartfelt sets used had a sentiment. The embossing is highlighted with Poppy Parade ink from SU!
I will be entering this in Joan's Gardens 25th Challenge. You must go check it out! There are amazing prizes to be won!
Happy Monday to all! I am out of here, and going to try to get into the Post office parking lot. This is all about timing during the holidays. Wish me luck.....

The body of the basket was created using a template and stamp from the Rubber Cottage. I must admit that it was fun, except for the lid. I think that what I ended up doing will work for my purposes.
Freshly Brewed: Christmas/Winter Theme
Hope you like my project, and stop back again real soon!

Both cards use a new stamp I received from Heartfelt Creations. It is called Red Delicious #277E. It has a white card base, followed by a layer of Basic Grey. My plaid panel was made using my new Sizzix plaid EF. I ran ink pads directly onto the folder, and I love how the background came out! I added a row of stitched ribbon with a duo of metal and pearl brads. My sentiment is from Gina K. Designs, and was cut out with an oval Nestabilities die, mounted on double layered rectangles. My apples were colored with Copics and popped up.
My second card is again a white base, layered with Grass Green PL card stock, and a top layer of glittered paper from the DCWV Citrus collection. My sentiment is from Impression Obsession layered on Labels Fourteen Nestabilities. I stamped a checkerboard border with an old SU! stamp. Sorry, don't know the name but it is all apples. This time I colored my apples like Granny Smiths, in all green Copics. It is such a great stamp to color!

The inside of my card sports more leaf punches, a fall saying from MelanieMuenchinger's stamp set called A Year Of Leaves, which can be found at Gina K. Designs. I added strips of coordinating papers, and a small pumpkin digi from the same collection. It was punched out with a 1" SU! punch.

My DP is from Basic Grey's Eerie pad with a strip of Soft Suede from SU! My cauldron is a digi image is from Robin's Artful Musings. I am adding this late, as I just found a new post for the image! My coloring was done with Copics and sponging was done with chalk inks. Stickles were added for extra sparkle. Extra pink was added by using adhesive pearls.
