Colored the stamp with Memento markers and stamped them onto GP white cs.  Stamped Hello saying from Stampendous with Black Versafine ink.

Snowflakes CAS Style Card

Starting on my holiday cards to avoid the rush in November.  Created this one with a die from Simon Says Stamp to create the 3 openings.  Snowflakes were cut out of silver paper using a die from Poppy. The hardest part of making the card was getting the snowflakes to line up in each opening.

Moo-chas Gracias

I bought this cow stamp for $1 at Michaels many years ago.  It hasn't been used in a very long time. To create the row of cows, I stamped the cow, then applied a mask over the left side and stamped it again.  Repeated the stamping and masking until I had five cows.  Let ink dry, then colored ground area with colored pencils.  Cut out all pieces with Spellbinders dies.  The moo-chas gracias saying stamp is from The Angel Co which is no longer in business.  Prima flowers, pearls, papers and ribbon are from my stash.
