For today, I have two cards I wanted to share with you.  First one...It using the dies in the set, no stamping!  :D



I used the thankful die and shadow die for it and the maple leaf die/  I started to stamp on it, but liked how the white looked!  The 'frame' I created using Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers on water paper.  It looks better in person, you can see all the sparkly goodness!  And next, I did do some stamping...and heat embossing, and used glossy paper, and ....ok, well, here it is!  :D
ANd even some hand stitiching!  :D  I also made this background with the Spectrum Sparkly markers.  I sat down and played the other day and this is one of the background I made while playing.  The leaves where stamped and then heat embossed in white embossing powder so they would really pop off the page.  I just LOVE this set!  Fall is my favorite time of year, and this set just makes me feel like its about here!

Here is what I have made for today:

Isnt the little snowman I used too stinking cute?!!  I have so many ideas for this set!  For this card, I embossed the tree images in white embossing powder and then I tore white cardstock to make my snow banks.  I colored the little snowman with pencils and stuck him in behind one of the banks.  The little snowflakes are from a miniature garland that I got on clearance year after the holiday to use this year!  smart cookie arent i?  LOL!

Up first for today I have Beth and her newest set, Todd Turtle.  (Dont you think its awesome how Beth names the sets she does after a family member!:  LOL)

 
For Todd, I created him a little home, lol!  I first created the background and did that with water color and then the sand is sandpaper.  I used a die for the seaweed and then colored the images with pencils  I also made is shell really shiny!  Here is a close up of that:

He is just too cute!  There are more images in the set, but I just feel in love with Todd!  :D
 
Ok, next up is Claire's newest set, Perfect Poinsettia.  And its a triple stamping images but I only used the outling image and the solid one:
I made the background with some Christmas themed tissue paper that I had saved from last year, glued it onto cardstock and then swiped it here and there with some metallic paste .  I made the poinsettia out of vellum...embossed it with gold then used a stylus on it to turn it white (2x) I took the solid image and embossed it with gold and then layered them all.  Then made the gold frame with a die and also the sentiment circle.  I also layered onto gold cardstock.  It sounds complicated, but its not really.  :D  
Next I wanted to show you the new incentive stamp set Nuturing Blooms
 
Here is my card:

I made it really rustic, thinking male card, which to lots of us is so hard to do, lol!  I created the middle panel by using some paper that has the consistency or a brown paper bag (the name escaped me now and im being lazy and not going to find it, LOL) The 'journey' is an embossing folder by Tim Holtz.  I tore the edges, stamped the incentives on it then used  washi tape.  I also ties some surgeon knots onto the piece of string I used.  I stamped the sentiment, cut out with a die then sponged the edges of it.  I had fun playing with this one, LOL!  And thats what is about, right?  :D
