Cheery Lynn Designs is giving away a $25 Gift Certificate to their store and Hampton Art is giving away this lovely package to some lucky winner.

For my project this week, I've used the Nutcracker Sweet 1 (IC0204) Stamp set, as I love Nutcrackers and this one was just the perfect stamp for me. I've also used papers from Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet. I stamped the Nutcracker 3 times and colored them to match the papers, using the three main colors of blue, red and golden yellow.

The shape of my card was created using Scalloped Circle cut out of kraft cardstock, the blue paper was cut using the Mini Pearl Circle. I then cut out a smaller Scalloped Circle using the Circle Scalloped Lg Stackers Nesting Dies, using some of the Graphics 45 papers, then cut out a smaller circle from the Circle Classic Lg Stackers Nesting Dies from Kraft Cardstock again. I cut out the Laced Pine Snowflake and inked the edges using Distress Ink Faded Jeans. The three Nutcrackers were placed on their with the middle one raised using silicone glue. At the top of the circles I used the Victorian Romance Flourish again inking it using the Faded Jeans distress ink.
At the very top of that, I created a Poinsettia using the Rose Leaf strip and Embellishment #1
I finally finished it off with a border across the back using the Cuties #1 in red cardstock.
The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.


Here is the stamp set from Hampton Art that I used
