For my first card today, I used the beautiful new Christmas Rose stamp.  I stamped this with Nocturne Versafine Clair ink onto watercolor paper and then watercolored this with some soft pastel colors of Daniel Smith paints.  After it was completely dry, I stamped the sentiment from the wonderful new Victorian Greetings set.  

For my second card, I broke out the silver embossing powder and used it on everything.  First, I stamped the Drizzle Dots background with Versamark onto some dark blue cardstock and covered it with silver embossing powder.  I hit that with the heat gun to melt the powder and set it aside.  Next, I stamped the beautiful new Happy in my Holidays with Versamark and repeated the embossing process with the same silver embossing powder.

I wanted some snowflakes in the background to echo the snowflakes that you see in the sentiment, so I pulled out some old Martha Stewart snowflake punches.  I punched three of them out of cardstock, pressed them into the Versamark ink pad, covered them with silver embossing powder, and melted them with the heat gun.   Embossing everything with the same silver powder really brings this whole card together.

Have fun checking out what the rest of the team has created with the new October release.

Lovin that first card with its pastel colors. Somehow I always want to use bright colors for Christmas, but this is beautiful.
