Something Christmas, Something New

The Creative Challenge for December that Shelli has given is to use our favorite technique.  Mine is an older one and is the Rock n Roll Technique.  I LOVE it.  It is my hands down favorite technique.  Since it is December I made a Christmas card.  I couldn't resist though and made a second card using some new stuff that I just got from my preorder for the Occassions Mini.  There is a lot of beautiful stuff in there.

Christ is Born is a perfect set to Rock n Roll with.  I inked in Crumb Cake, rocked n rolled in Cherry Cobbler and then again in Early Espresso.  Do you see the bow?  (I know, hard to miss)  See that Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon?!  LOVE, love, love it!!!  It is new and in the Occassions Mini!  WOOOHOOO!!!

Ink:  Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler

This card uses the new set Build a Blossom.  It is just fabulous!  AND there is a punch that punches out those petals.  I LOVE that.  I rocked n rolled the petals and the leaves.  The petals I inked in Baja Breeze and rocked n rolled in Not Quite Navy.  The leaves I inked in Pear Pizzazz and the rocked n rolled in Always Artichoke.  I absolutely LOVE these colors together.  And the designer paper!  Oh my!

WOW! Love the rock and roll look on the flower petals! I'm (barely) holding out until SAB starts before I order the stamp and punch. This just made it a lot harder to wait!
