Well, sorry for the break in cards recently. I have been busy trying to sew two fairy costumes for my girls for Halloween, which is becoming quite the project, and the downside is it has invaded my stamping space! But, I made this simple and cute little Christmas card a few weeks back and thought I better share something again before you guys loose interest, so her it is. Hope you enjoy!

So, I created this card in Honor of Breast Cancer awareness month for the "Hope You Can Cling To" Campaign on Splitcoast Stampers. The Challenge was to Bring in the Brown.
I used the Upsy Daisy set (#111710) on a Chocolate Chip base. I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch (#118402) and the Scallop Edge Border Punch (#119882) along with Play Date DSP (#117168), 5/8" Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon (#117289), 5/8" Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon (#119958), Hemp Twine (#100982) and an Antique Brad (#117273) to accessorize my card. I also used a sponge and some stitching on the ribbon. ENJOY!

Well, I got busy yesterday and didn't get a post up, so today you get to see two cards! The first is featuring the Autumn Days set (Wood Mount-#115452 or Clear Mount #112000). I used Kraft CS for the base of the card, and Cajun Craze for the matte. For the background I sponged with Daffodil Delight first, then I punched out a circle out of a sticky note and placed it for the sun. After I placed the circle I continued to sponge with Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze ink for the sunset effect. Then I stamped the wheat with Daffodil Delight Ink, the other grass with Kraft ink, and the berry branches with Cajun Craze. The bottom edge of the paper was sponged with Early Espresso along with the Pheasant image. Use the ticket corner punch for the corners, and embellish with gold brads. For the sentiment I used the Sincere Salutations set again, and inked it with Early Espresso mounted on Early Espresso CS and placed on the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
