Merry Christmas Wanted!

Who doesn't want a Merry Christmas!! I've been having fun making Christmas cards using non-Christmas stamp sets. I think I actually used Apple Cider DSP which is not available any more - you could easily substitute spotted River Rock DSP from Dashing or the new Ginger Blossom papers if you wanted the same look.
Stampsets: Wanted, Party Punch (hostess set)
Cardstock: Real Red, Very Vanilla, Apple Cider DSP
Inks: Real Red
Accessories: River Rock Double-Stitched Grosgrain, Scallop Circle, 1" & 1 1/4" Circle Punches

I can't believe how many things can be made with a flower petal! I have seen butterflies, dragonflies & smiley faces all made using Pick a Petal - must get too it & make some myself. I first saw these candles on Splitcoast Stampers - they'd also look fab on a birthday card too & are a great way to use up some patterned paper scraps!

Stampsets: Pick a Petal, Occasional Greeting
Cardstock: Purely Pomegranite, Whisper White, Holiday Harmony DSP (retired)
Inks: So Saffron, Always Artichoke
Accessories: More Mustard & Basic Black Stampin' Write Markers, 2 Way Glue, Dazzling Diamonds
