Addicted to Stamps Challenge #118



Hi there Blog Friends,
Once again, it's Team A's turn to post our inspiration cards for this week's challenge at Addicted to Stamps! Our theme this week is 'Holiday', and I have chosen to create two cards...one for Thanksgiving, and one for Christmas. Here is my first card:






For the flowers on this card, I used the rock n' roll technique for PTI's stamps and dies 'Mums the Word' collection, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts 'Thankful for You' stamp set.
_________________________________________________________





For my 2nd card, I used the stamp and die set 'Holiday Village' from Poppy Stamps. I colored in the houses and trees with Copics, then stacked 3 layers of the die cuts to add dimension. The sentiment is from MFT.

So, if you need to get some holiday cards done, I hope you'll grab your stamps and ink, and play along with us for this week's Challenge! My team mates have created some amazing cards, and our Sponsor for this challenge is Eureka Stamps. The prize for the winner is your choice of 3 Digital Stamps!

Thanks so much for stopping by today ~
Barb

Two beautiful cards, Barb! The flowers/colours on the first certainly capture fall's splendour, while your little village in festive colours is incredibly charming! I'd like to live in the house on the left (I'm sure it would have a crafting room alllllll for me). Love these!
Hugs~c
