Oooops I am so behind on posting this. I guest designed for our LSS for their Stamp of the month. Tara had chosen a clear Hero Arts sentiment stamp set (shown at the bottom of this post ) for this month.A fab set it is.These are great for focusing as the main image of your card,as a senti or even for the inside of your cards ! I made up three quick cards.We also featured Pink Paislee's Xmas paper. 

So for my first card,I used a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp,Pink Paislee paper and my CS background I embossed with poinsettia folder.
My second card using the TH die Reindeer in Flight ( I believe) I cut it out of corrugated cardboard. Spritz it with Heidi Swapp color shine. Prima bling for added touch.

And third and final card was using some scraps up. Again with the embossed CS and that poinsettia is from Tim Holtz.I also used the sizzix coordinating embosssing folder to give that pretty embossed look on the flower.Cool eh?? 

And here's the set.If you are a member you can get this set for 35 % off  ! !

Naughty or Nice

Now I made this card a couple of weeks ago I think.I had used a sketch but for the life of me I can't remember which sketch challenge it came from. It was a fun one...being that some girlfriends and I got together to play.We decided to pick a sketch and see who was the first to complete.I lost lol.I`m too yappy I think.But it was a hoot to do it.It did make me accomplish one thing though..a card.Had I not accepted the challenge this baby may never have had happened lol. 

So yes this is a Saturated Canary image called Candy Cane I believe. She is my fav Xmas image of Saturated Canary. The papers are from Echo Park ..Very Merry. I used my mover/shaper die mini cardinal/poinsettia for the poinsettias. The little bird,stars and banner wood pieces are from Studio Calico. They were a gift from a girlfriend for my bday...I love them and are gonna have to get me some more. Anyhoo hope you like..

Magnolia Bear...

Oh when I saw this fella ,he was a must have. Can't help myself when it comes to cute lol.
Now this color combo is a first for me.I have to say I quite like it.The papers are from Bazzill called Timeless. I added some red cardstock and some red snowflake ribbon.Just for some color to the sepia like tone. The wood snowflakes are from Maya Road and Studio Calico. I stamped my sentiment on to the wooden flag,worked perfectly.

Here is the inside of the card.... I stamped some snowflakes and the word Joy in the background and then stamped the sentiment . The other side of the card was the circle that the image was mounted on sooo waste not..I used it to mount as piece of paper behind the hole and stamped Winter wishes on it.
