Stamp Set: Happiness Always
Ink: Riding hood red
Paper: riding hood red, bella rosa DSP, whisper white
From my ho to my ho ho ho card- I have a feeling it may be a theme this xmas..I just feel like being a bit cheeky. Love how this turned out- although I'm thinking I may have to get the paper piercer because the cutter kit perforator is a bit more subtle than I was hoping.

Paper: riding hood red, chocolate chip, pink pirouette, whisper white

This is one of the cards that we made at my wheel class. I wanted to use a retiring in colour- the wild wasabi- and also a retiring stamp set.

Paper: wild wasabi textured paper, very vanilla, night of navy

Yet another card with my new baroque background. I also used the baby wipe technique to do the medallions- however, i didn't have any reinkers so used the ink spots on a baby wipe instead. It is really faint because of it- I will need to repeat this with reinkers.
