Triple Treat Triple Flower

Over the next few days I will be posting the cards made at my January Stamp Camp. This card received a unanimous vote as the favorite card of the evening by my customers. The first time I looked in the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog, the Triple Treat Flower Single Stamp went on the head of my Wish List.  Had to have it.  Now I know why.  This color palate is perfect for this time of year.

Now this stamp is also being offered in the Sale-a-brations catalog and can be earned for free with a qualifying purchase.

Pines & Poinsettias

This card is a variation from our Up-Upline, Penny Thomas.  I couldn't wait to use this stamp from the Pines & Poinsettias stamp set.  I love using markers to color a stamp.  This card has such a delicate and elegant look, I was afraid to touch it.  Thought it might break. 

This is is the last card from our Christmas Card Workshop.  I haven't chosen a favorite.  I really, really love them all.  Do you have a favorite?
