My first card features Altenew's Poinsettia And Pine. I absolutely love this set. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to stamp my images along with using masking paper to layer the images. I then water colored it using the stamped ink. I added sequins from Design Creative Bling O'Tannumbaum a Laura's Loft exclusive. I mounted my finished card front on MFT Gold Shine card stock then on MFT Red Hot card stock.

This is the card front with nothing added. I think I is beautiful either way.

For this card I stamped my images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored my images with Prisma Colored Pencils and also created the background. I used Glossy accents on the eyes. The sentiment is embossed with WOW Ultra Bright White Super Fine on a piece of MFT Jelly Bean Green. I mounted my finished card front on a piece of MFT Jelly Bean Green. Last but not least I added tiny silver brads to the sentiment.

I used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink to stamp my images along with some masking. I colored them using Copics. My background was also colored with copics. I added snow flakes using Simon Says Stamp cloudy sky.

I glued Joyuex Noel sequin mix by Design Creative Bling to my card front. I double matted this first on MFT Sparkling Silver, then on SU Bold Blue.

This next card was an adventure thanks to Sandy Alnock. I watched a video of hers where she used Haft Grund and Facetten Lack.

 I just love this stuff. I used a piece of water color paper and painted it wth Haft Grund then I applied the Facetten Lack and set it aside to dry. As it dries it crackles and gives this antique look. while that was drying I stamped my bow in Versa Mark and embossed it in Ranger red geranium . Then I stamped the ornament in Versa Mark and embossed it in WOW gold rich super fine. I flipped it over and colored the back of the ornament with Copics. To finish it up I stamped my sentiment in Versa Fine and embossed it with WOW clear super fine

This stamp set reminds me of Jamie's kids. I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink using Masking to layer them. I left the masking paper in place while I created my background. To do this I first made snow using Rangers Emboss it pen and WOW metallic platinum sparkle embossing powder. Then I used Tim Holtz blueprint sketch distress ink. For the bottom I heat embossed it with WOW opaque bright white ultra high embossing powder. I colored my little people with Copics and mounted the finished piece on MFT Green Fields.
