If you have arrived here from lovely Kendra's blog, then you are on the right track.  If not start at the Totally Stampalicious blog and follow the awesome line up.....

 For my creation tonight, I have used "Deacon and Ava HOHO":

I stamped Deacon and Ava HOHO onto cryogen card stock and colored them with copics.  You can't see it in the picture, but I added sparkle to the fur on their hats and to the snow falling around them.  I decided to use non traditional christmas colors for my card.  The awesome papers are from the Be Merry paper pad from My Minds Eye.  I really like these papers....  I added some ribbon and a bow and if you look closely at the bow, you will see 3 snowflake charms that I attached to the bow... Hope you all like it !!!!!

Here is another card that I did using "Margaret December" :

Margaret is stamped onto cryogen card stock and colored in with copics. I really love these stamp sets as they come with the image and a few sentiments for you to choose from.  I have a hard time coming up with sentiments, so this works well for me.   I used one of my dies to cut out my image and sentiment and while it was still in the die, I sponged some red ink around the images. I added a strip of green card stock that I punched some snowflakes using a border punch.  I added some red ribbon down the middle of it.  I added a bow and attached 3 charms to the brad holding the bow together.  I added a few pearls in the corners.  Again it is hard to tell in the picture, but I added some sparkle to the fur on Margaret's hat and dress and also to the ornaments she is holding.
Hope you like both of my creations today.... 


I will have some more creations with these new awesome stamp sets soon, so keep checking back to see what I have come up with.
