If you click on this pic to enlarge it, you can see the oval punched out with the greeting stamped and placed behind it and the scallop oval punched out and placed over the top around the oval. It's a cool look but sadly kinda lost on this background paper. That and it's almost too much going on but I really like the image embossed over this Deck the Halls DS paper! I layered the background over the waffle paper and then on Espresso CS. I used Espresso Craft ink and clear powder to emboss the image and words. I love those new Antique Brads-I want to use them on everything, they are surprisingly light weight!

I love this set, Just got it and decided to make some cards with it! It's called Come to Bethlehem! I cut out the Oval Scallop Frame with the die and the Big Shot using Crumb Cake CS. I then used scrap pieces of Deck The Halls DS paper and cut out more frame pieces and then attached them over the CS frame. I liked the look of this with pieced together papers! I used Vanilla Taffteta Ribbon and sponged this lightly with Burgundy Ink. The image and words were stamped with Early Espresso Classic Ink. The background paper from the same Paper pack was sponged with Espresso ink around the edges and the base card is Bravo Burgundy CS. The Rhinestone on the star adds the finishing touch!

Another card using the lovely French Foliage Set! I sponged the edges of the newsprint and Vanilla CS with Espresso ink. The images were stamped with Espresso and the splash drops were stamped lightly with Peach Parafait ink. I stamped the three leaves then cut them out and sponged the edges with Espresso as well! The Espresso Taffeta Ribbon and brads complete the card!

This French Foliage Set from the Holiday Mini is my favorite set, I knew the moment I saw this set, I would use the heck out of it and I am! I stamped the three focal point leaves on white CS with Early Espresso and then cut them out. I then sponged very lightly over the cut out leaves with Early Espresso and I love this look! So I tried it with several other colors and loved those too, the white sponged veins are such a nice contrast! The base card is Espresso CS stamped with Espresso ink with the large leaf. The newsprint is sponged lightly in places with Espresso and Suede inks and wrapped with Espresso 1/4" taffeta ribbon. The Top Note Die is cut out with Whisper White CS and stamped with the leaves using Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Soft Suede inks. I used an Antique Brad to finish off the top note along with more Taffeta ribbon and the three leaves!

I love Poinsettias! Although this set is very detailed, the images are such a nice size for cards!
I colored directly on the stamp with markers and stamped the images. I combined the papers from the Deck the Halls DS paper and applied a ruffle under two of the edges of the focal point using the waffle paper. I sponged the lace ribbon and the edges of everything with Crumb Cake ink! ~Stamps: Bells and Boughs set.~Paper: Card base-Crumb Cake, Shimmery White CS, Deck the Halls DS paper. ~ Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Artichoke, Old Olive, Real Red, Crumb Cake. ~ Accessories: Basic Glimmer Brads, Waffle Paper, Decorative Label Punch, Lace ribbon, Ribbon Punch, Dimensionals.

This Card was very simple with just the gratitude stamped on the wide oval using the Define Your Life stamp set and layered over two punched out Decorative Labels punched from the Gala Paper! I used the Greenhouse Gala DS paper to layer around the box part and cut out the flower on the tag from the same background paper too. I added the clear buttons over punched out flowers again using the background paper. I covered Hershey mini's with the paper to insert in the box. 1/8" Daffodil ribbon and Brights brad complete the card!
