Reason for Season

Good Morning!
I'm sooooooooooooo ready to be making Christmas cards everyday! They are definitely my favourite ones to create! Lucky for me my Design Teams are all coming out with holiday images and I can play early!
This first card is made using a new set by Diane from All That Scraps called Reason for Season. There are some wonderful images and sentiments in this set which you will be able to purchase on Monday, October 5th at 10 pm Eastern. I kept the layout clean and simple so I could showcase this adorable image! I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copic markers. The little star was cut out and popped up. I then added stickles to the heart and star.
Stamps: Reason for Season; Cardstock: White, Real Red, Wild Wasabi, DSP; Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Accessories: Copics, Stickles, Brads, Paper piercer, Nestie, Dimensionals
Flaky Friends has to be an all time fave of mine from SU! It's a set that gets uses year after year and even though it's no longer available, I'll STILL be using it!
This card was made using the Colour Challenge(Pretty in Pink, Sage Shadow, Going Gray)on SCS and also for Mercy's Sketch #41.
I'm out of Going Gray cardstock so I had to settle on a Going Gray marker to colour with...lol
Stamps: Flaky Friends; Cardstock: White, Pretty in Pink, Sage Shadow, DSP; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Sage Shadow Grograin, Sherbet Button, Thread, Spiral Punch, Mat pack and Paper piercer, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!
