These next two posts use the Big on Christmas stamp set. On this one I used the Bright Bulbs roller stamp on Sahara Sand card stock. I inked it by rolling it in my Night of Navy Craft pad and then Clear Embossed. I then colored in with my Stampin' Write Markers. I did the same with N el on Night of Navy card stock only this time I used an old Blender Pen, dipping it in bleach and bleached out the letters. Be sure to pull the tip out of your Blender Pen and rinse thoroughly so it can be used again for bleaching, other wise it will fall apart. I stamped the O (ball) on Whisper White, colored in and then cut out and raised it onto the Night of Navy. I also used Real Red in my layering and used my Zig Painty on the edges of the layers and on the Christmas ball.
On these 2 cards I used my Basic Black Craft pad with Clear Embossing Powder, Real Red card stock, & the snowflakes from Wishing You Cheer stamp set. The one to the left uses Very Vanilla craft pad & card stock. I also bleached the SNOW, then added some color with my markers. The other one I colored in SN W using my White Gel Pen, the snowman face I stamped out on white, cut out and raised it on the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. I like the one to the left better because it has a vintage look to it. E-mail me with your comments or questions.

These Simply Sent Kits are wonderful. The one shown here is Three Thoughts. This kit has everything you need to create many beautiful cards. It has Chipboard pieces as well as self adhesive Die Cuts.
The kit also includes a 4 piece stamp set, More Mustard, Mellow Moss & Purely Pomegranate Stampin' Spots, Card Stock Assortment, Mini Glue Dots & 14 Whisper White Envelopes. If you have yet to play with Stampin' Up's!® Chipboard or the self adhesive Die Cuts, this would be a great kit to buy to see if you like them. I also used my White Gel Pen to accent the flowers on the one Mellow Moss card. Any questions please e-mail me, I would love to help you in any way I can.

Here are two 3x3 cards I made with the All in the Family stamp set. The dots stamp is from my Happiness Background stamp. Ted, my DH, cut them apart and then made blocks for each one. I also used my Curvy Verses set and Circle & Scallop Punches. Have a great day!
