I die cut the letters from the Sunny Studio Silly Stripes paper, turning the papers when die cutting, to make the stripes go different ways. I layered them once, then arranged them between two panels that had been embossed the the new Mega Wrap Stripes stencil. I liked this stencil for embossing fo the card panel, as I thought the every which way lines mimic the lines of the patterned paper on the die cut letters. It was hard to photograph the embossed lines, thus why my card is laying down! I used a piece of the CZ Design sentiment from the new Good Cheer stamp set. I finished the card by adding some Tonic Jewel drops for bling. Here's a close up...

Ho Ho Ho
I die cut the sentiment from three different colors of Sunny Studio patterned paper. I then die cut more of the senitments in white cardstock to layer. I die cut and layered the background die for the sentiment, as well. I wanted to keep the polka dot "thing" going, so I used one of the new Simon stencils, embossing the design into the card stock. The image is subtle, but just enough for some added interest to the card. I also used my Wink of Stella brush to give glitter to the "hos", as well as some clear Tonic drops on the letters of all three of the sentiments. Here are a couple close ups...

Make Merry Blog Hop!
This first one, I used both the Autumn Leaves stamp/die set and the All Leaves background stamp...
I sponged distress inks on a piece of card stock, then stamped with versamark, gold embossed, and die cut from select places on the card stock for my leaves. I layered them and adhered them to a card panel that I had stamped the All Leaves stamp in light gray. I used the CZ Design Clean Line Gratitude stamp/die set for this, as well as the second card's sentiments, stamped with versamark, gold embossed, die cut and layered, like the leaves. Here's a close up...
For the second card, I simply colored the All Leaves background stamp...
I had so much fun coloring the leaves....nothing fancy...just coloring, but the gold embossing adds the fancy! I used my MISTI, and stamped the image with fog ink. I colored the leaves, then put the paper back into my misti and stamped with versamark and gold embossed. I LOVE this technique...such magic when you emboss with the gold after coloring!! I did color the background of the stamped images with a light gray, also. I then used my stitched rectangle die, in keeping with the stitched leaves, and die cut the
background stamp with the rectangle and layered.
Here's a close up...
The fun for me was above, the fun for you is below!
