Angela - she may be still sharing them. It has been really helpful to see which paper I like. I have been wanting to use this new stamp set since I got it in June and finally have had time. I used the Dotted Scalloped Border Punch at the bottom to cover up a mistake I made when I was stamping the sentiment and it covered it quite nicely and even added to the design!

I wasn't sure what to make for a school but since I teach Grade One I thought I would make a name tag. Our first unit will be about apples so I stamped apples from the Tart and Tangy set using Real Red, So Saffron, and Certainly Celery. I used the Serif Essentials Alphabet Bigz Dies to make the letters with Marina Mist. I think I will have to make one for my student teachers and assistants.

This week's challenge is a color challenge - I find color challenges the hardest to do and ended up making the following two cards - very similar but I couldn't decide which one I liked better.
I thought then that I would try three ornaments.
I think I will use less Dazzling Diamonds next time - a little too clumpy. I used the Snowflake Extra-Large and punched out snowflakes in green and just folded them over to make branches. I am really liking the new color Cherry Cobble and want to try making more Christmas cards. Be sure to check out all the amazing designs of all the other goddesses.
