Christmas Wheel 07631
One of my somethings new is the image that happens to be 50% off this month! This is such a wonderful little winter/Christmas image…you don’t really even need to color it. Since I stamped it on textured paper, I used my Misti & Versafine & I stamped it twice to make sure it got into the crevices of the paper. With Versafine, I couldn’t use my Copics, so I used a couple of very pale blue/green Tombow (water based) markers. The greeting was stamped w/ barn door Distress ink before I added some dp layers & snowflake border die cut. I added stickles here & there on the snow & I used a red marker & red stickles to add some berries to the twigs. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

White Autumn Leaves cu 07640
This lovely Maple Leaf  is also new to me. I tried stamping it in a number of inks & colors, but still didn’t get the look I wanted until I white embossed it and sponged the colors onto the background. I die cut a white frame out of textured white, elevated it a bit & attached it to a layer of dp. A second maple leaf was fussy cut and added along w/ the greeting stamped underneath.
