Howdy and good afternoon! I spent some more time yesterday working on cards for various challenges. These Christmas cards are for Stamping 411's SSC172 sketch challenge and Mark's Finest Paper's SCF #24 - to use stipes in our design.
Supplies used:

STAMPS: Hero Arts, Studio g $1 clear stamps
PAPER: whisper white, real red (SU!); DCWV printed paper
THE REST: ribbon, blender pens, dimensionals (SU!); Stickles (Ranger)

The tree image was colored using my ink pads and blender pens.

My HOPE card was created for the HYCCT09 - Let's Dabble in Some Scrabble.
Supplies used:
STAMPS: Say It With Scallops (SU!)
INK: Regal Rose (SU!)
PAPER: Kraft card base (paper reflections); whisper white (SU!); Bittersweet 6x6 paper pad (BasicGrey)
THE REST: half pearls, scallop square punch (pretties kit-SU!); twine ribbon, flower, button, twine (unknown); Scrabble tiles I took this challenge literally and used actual Scrabble tiles on my card! Way fun!!
This last card I created for this week's Featured Stamper challenge - FS192.
Supplies used:
STAMPS: Enjoy Every Moment (SU!)
PAPER: Whisper White, Crumb Cake (SU!); pink (DCWV)
