**Just Add Ink challenge card is second in this post**

Well, I was going to make a mitten Christmas card, but none of my Christmas-y sentiments seemed to compliment this set (and I'm not so fond of "have a cute Christmas" which is the sentiment contained in the set). It then turned into just a winter card. :) The card features the paper buttons and also the spotlighting technique. (Stamp the image on a separate paper, punch out a portion and pop that up on the main image. I also like to add a second, colored circle underneath, as you can see.) I love these colors together!

Stamp Sets: A Cute Christmas, Apple Blossoms
Ink: StazOn black, Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi, Baja Breeze
Paper: Crumb Cake, Candy Cane Christmas, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette
Tools: Big Shot, Top Note die, Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, 3/4" Circle punch, 1" Circle punch, 1/2" Circle punch, Crystal Effects, 1/16" hole punch, dimensionals, Blender Pens


Next, I have another Candy Cane Christmas card... literally! :) I made it for the Just Add Ink Christmas Card challenge. This candy cane die is a Sizzix die I bought via eBay 2 years ago and haven't used much since completing the project for which it was purchased. But the striped sheet in the Candy Cane Christmas DSP pack just called for it to be pulled out of the drawer! I used the "have a" and "Christmas" parts of the "have a cute Christmas" phrase, but then used the "sweet" from Sweet Scoops. I thought it appropriate for the candy canes!

Stamp Sets: A Cute Christmas, Sweet Scoops
Ink: Real Red
Paper: Real Red, Candy Cane Christmas DSP, Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Tools: 1" Circle punch, 1 1/4" Circle punch, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch, Big Shot, Sizzix candy cane die, Embellishments: 1/8" Real Red Taffeta ribbon, Jumbo 5/16" Neutrals Brads Silver, Real Red brads, glue dots, dimensional
