Todays cards

The top card uses Baja Breeze, Old Olive and Very Vanilla cardstock. Baja Breeze, Old Olive and Creamy Caramel inks, paper piercer, Word Window Punch and pearl beads. Stamp sets used are Baroque Motifs and Eastern Blooms

Middle card Always Artichoke and Whisper White Cardstock along with Always Artichoke and Real Red inks. I used my new Cuttlebug Ornament folder and then sponged some color on some of the ornaments. I used the new Stampin' Up! set A Cardinal Christmas for the main image. I just had to add Red Glitter glue since I did not stamp the berries in red but I think the glitter pretty well hides those green berries.

The last card uses Real Red, Baja Breeze, Whisper White and Ski Slope Designer Paper. This is the Twisted Ribbon Technique that is in the latest edition of Technique Junkies Newsletter. You can find out more about them by clicking on the icon on the right. I used the Stampin' Up! sets Jolliest Time of the Year and To You & Yours. Of course, the card would not be complete with out glitter. I added Crystal Effects and then Dazzling Diamonds for a finishing touch.

Hope you enjoy todays cards. Please let me know what you think.

Wow, Cheryl. I love this BG and what you did with it for each background. Love how you sponged on the first one and the holly berries too! Santa, of course, is just perfectly cute. Your ribbon is really great with this too! I always work backwards on blogs it seems. I love the blue card with the flowers and those wonderful pearls~~!!
