Now, I'll admit I've had these cards in the works for a while, but quickly finished them up so I could play along. I used one of my new (sort of) stamp sets. I'll call it new because I've only had it since just before Christmas and hadn't used it yet. That's new by my way of thinking. The stamp set is Power Poppy's Berry Sweet Holiday. I made two cards with this clean and simple design:
Colored with Copics, cut out and popped up. Glitter on the berries. All the white is Neenah 110 lb. The peppermint candies are one of the stamps in the set. Gloss was added. I was thinking along the lines of large-ish enamel dots.
So, the first card is my entry in the CAS challenge, but I also made two of these:
I'm always trying to figure ways to use my massive hoard of ribbon without adding a big, bulky bow. In the photo below you can see an idea that worked well for this card. I used an old SU double rectangle punch to create slots through which to thread the ribbon. I placed an enamel dot over top so it looks like the ribbon is all cinched up in a brad.
Here's that challenge link again. The DT has some fantastically inspiring cards:

I hope to play again before the month is over. Thanks so much for visiting today. I'll be back with more "playing with new stuff" later this week. Stay well!
