Tree hunting white Christmas

a non-traditional Christmas card in blushing bride.  This card uses the White Christmas photopolymer stamp set which I love!  I had so much fun putting this together.  The snow is made using the white chalk marker available from Stampin'Up.  I colored the car in cherry cobbler and the tree is stamped on old olive and colored in pear pizzaz.  I used white craft ink to stamp my snow.  The deer is colored in crumb cake and the greeting is from the same stamp set.  I love how versatile this set is.  I fussy cut the snowman which was stamped on whisper white in momentous black ink and colored the hat and scarf in blushing bride with a marker.  His carrot nose is colored in calypso corral.  I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do.  One of the great things about photopolymer is the ability to curve or straighten some elements of the stamp on the block prior to inking.  The straight "road" under the car was stamped with the hill portion of the trees in this stamp set.

Thankful wondrous wreath card

I love the fall with all the beautiful colors.  For this card I used one of our paper doilies and sponged some crushed curry, Cajun craze and pear pizzaz ink on it.  I then used some sponge daubed to sponge the same colors on to the first layer of the Wondrous wreath stamp set and finished it off with some always artichoke ink.  I used the matching Framelits to cut it out and finished it with some leaves and matching framelits from the fall fest stamp set.  The card base is in crumb cake and I used the wood grain embossing folder for some added interest.  The greeting is from the Good Greetings hostess stamp set which was available through October 31st with a $300 workshop or order.

Totally Tess Tee Hee Hee

As soon as I saw the stamp set Tee Hee Hee in the holiday catalog, I couldn't't wait to try it out with a retired set called Totally Tess. I love the wat this turned out.  A few colors of ink direct to paper, the two stamp sets and what a cute frameable piece of artwork.  Happy Halloween everyone.
