Look what I won - mailed straight from Idaho!!

I just had to share this awesome card that was sent to me by my friend and Close to My Heart sister, Nichole Lewno in Idaho!!  I was so excited to win a hand-made card from her because she is so artsy and creative.  

Nichole is hosting video classes on U-stream twice a month on Tuesday evenings (which I have so thoroughly enjoyed), and after the broadcast thru until Sunday, you can leave a comment on her blog and a winner is randomly chosen!  Yeah!!  I won the very card I had my eye on while she was presenting her class! 

This is a Flip-Top card that Nichole demonstrated in, I believe it was, her first U-stream class a few weeks ago.  She did a great job and I was so happy to receive it! 

Thanks Nichole for sharing your talents and generous spirit with me and all you come in contact with! 
To check out some of Nichole’s artwork and a glimpse into her life, head on over to her blog by clicking on her name!  You'll enjoy your visit! 

Reindeer Christmas Card

Well, I finally got my hands on my new Christmas stamps again this evening after about a month and half! I got so many in my Bundle that I purchased at CTMH Convention back in July, that are in our Autumn/Winter 2010 Idea Book, and I’ve only had a chance to create with 2 of the sets!

I used the following products from our gorgeous new Idea Book:
C1427    I Believe (set of 7 stamps)  - I used the Reindeer stamp (gorgeous!)
A1110    A Timber (set of 7) - I used the phrase ‘Happy Holidays’ from this set
X5811    Creative Basics Mistletoe Collections – I used the Cranberry B&T sheet
1282       New England Ivy Cardstock
Z2135    New England Ivy Ink Pad
Z134       Prisma Glitter
Z891       VersaMark Ink Pad
Z1126    Colonial White Ribbon Collection (I used the Crocheted ribbon – love it!)

My card base is actually the Colonial White Textured Cardstock.

This reindeer card was totally inspired from a YouTube video that a fellow stamper (with another stamp company) demonstrated last year using a reindeer stamp of theirs!  I altered it a tad and made it work for me and my personal style but totally spun off of her creativity!! 

I fell in love with her technique of dabbing the VersaMark Ink Pad over the whole piece of cardstock that the reindeer was stamped on,  then sprinkling with the Prisma Glitter and heat-setting!  Loved, loved, loved it!!  You’ll have to remember from one of my very first blog posts that it was heat-embossing that won me over to the scrapbooking and papercrafting world with Close to My Heart!!

Hope you enjoy!
