Mama Elephant & Studio Calico blog hop

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends! Today I’m joining with Mama Elephant as they have designed two stamp sets for the latest Studio Calico card kit and add on. These two stamp sets that Mama Elephant designed for the card kits are fabulous! The kits are pretty cool, too…lots of delicious embellishments and pretty pattern papers. My first card uses a stamp set from the add on…love those trees and LOVE this sentiment.IMG_2422See these little dots that I glued onto the tree? They are included in the card kit. I seriously want a whole wheel barrel full…that’s all I want for Christmas.
IMG_2445I made another card using the stamp set from the card kit.

IMG_2442I embossed my candles in white onto solid cardstock, and then colored the white embossing with Copics to give the flame a little added interest.
