Here are a couple of cards I made using the Day of Gratitude stamp set along with the medallion background stamp. I saw something similar on splitcoaststampers but didn't note the original. I will be better about that in the future. Sad to say I made two other fun cards that I forgot to take pictures of before I used them.

Welcome Christmas

I absolutely love the "Welcome Christmas" stamp set. I have been having fun playing with it. Here are a couple of the cards I came up with. I have made a set of coasters using the kids and the sled that I will photograph and post later. The first card uses crumb cake, Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze paper. I don't love this combination but wanted to try something different.

Come to Bethlehem stamp set cards

Here are a couple of cards I made with the "Come to Bethlehem" stamp set. I used shimmer paint on the second picture (although it doesn't photograph well.) I have redone these cards using my Night of Navy craft ink rather than the classic ink. I will post these later. The image is much more bold with the craft ink. The paper lace technique I got from here.

Fun with Punch Potpourri Hostess set

I have been playing around with the heart from the hostess level one Punch Potpourri set. The card designs are very similar but I made some slight changes. I think the one using the riding hood red is my favorite. I also used my Big Shot movers and shapers to cut the heart. For the embossing I used my brayer to roll crumb cake ink onto the Elegant Lines embossing folder. Then I ran it through the Big Shot using vanilla paper. I saw the technique on splitcoaststampers but I can't remember where. I will be using this technique more in the future.
