New stamp sets!!!

I got my new stamps in yesterday - just in time to finish the designs on a few more cards for tonights Christmas card Stamp a Stack. The card above and below are both from the Punch Pals set. As you can see, I used 3 punches on the card above - I just love how punches make the work go so quickly!
Here I used the Punch Pals set again, except I had to add a little shine. The snowy hills and snowman are colored with Pearl-Ex (they're shinier in person!). I had to add just a little glitter on my tree and holly.

I got the idea for this card on www.splitcoaststampers.com - one of my favorite websites! I loved the scallop square idea, so I added a ribbon band and buttons at the bottom. You can't see it from the picture, but the red strip is actually the inside of the card - I just cut off the bottom part of the top layer of the card so you could see into it.

And, yet another design that www.splitcoaststampers.com inspired me to create. I love the simplicity and elegance of this idea for a card. I ran the ribbon through just like a belt and added an eyelet with my wonderful Crop-a-dile! I love that tool!

I love these cards that you made. I used to scrapbook a lot when I was younger, but since I've married and had two kids I haven't found much time for scrapbooking. I would love some easy things to do.
