Let me show you what I created with one of the stencils, there is more to come later :D
With Christmas closing in, I thought it would be a good idea to give an edge to my gifts and these stencils were just right for that...
I made my own wrapping paper with the stencil and the coordinating tags to make the gifts stand out :) The making was simple, I die cut a few curly frames... bigger one (in colored card stock) to ink up the trees from the stencil and a smaller one (in white card stock) to stamp the Santa. I punched these including the die cut sentiment to add twine. 
Here is a closeup into each of the tags I made...



Coloring of the Santa was done with Prisma Color Pencils which was blended using Gamasol. I hope you enjoyed my creation and will give it a try :)

Let me show you the cards I created :)
I am in love with the Typografia Series that Shery is designing, the Thanks series is no less. Here are my cards using two of these designs,
This card was easy, I simple stamped the leaves to build my background with fall colors. stamped the typografia stamp in black and layered this panel on grey panel. I love the fall colors, who doesn't!! ;)
For my second card, I did some water mark stamping with the leaf, stamped the sentiment and added the die cut gift box and embellished it with pop of gold details. This one is more on simple and elegant side. Besides, the new stamps, I have used Trendy LeavesCrazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies, Gift Builder #1 Dies and Trendy Spring Blooms Dies

I am particularly excited for my next set of cards as I have my newest stamp being released "Thankful and Blessed" This one combines pumpkins with floral image and succulents. So much can be done with this set. You can use it all year long. I went overboard and created many cards :)
Let me begin the card parade, and yet this is not the end... If only I had enough time I could have made cards every single day hahaha
So for my first card I stamped the image in Distress ink and water colored it. No line water coloring, Kept it pretty simple by layering the panel on black to frame the image.
For this one, I stamped the image in white ink and colored it Prisma Color pencil. Simple!! something about it :)
Here I did some masking to stamp the pumpkins and this card is truly bringing the fall spirit out. This one was colored in Prisma Color pencils too :)

For my final card, I wanted to use my Spectrum Noir Markers. So I went with more pastel colors. I love soft tones :) and this time I stamped the floral image at the base.

I hope you enjoyed the creations, there are a lot of stops in the hop. Please find the links below or go to the STAMP blog HERE.
