Card # 1 was inspired by a cupcake birthday card I saw by Amy Smith. I kept the general sketch idea and adapted it to a gingerbread man card instead, using the yummy felt ribbon from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday mini catalogue!
Card #2 was based off a sketch idea from Angie Bennett -- I just changed the colour scheme to use the new In Colors and a reindeer from the "Merry & Bright" set. I also snagged a vanilla brad from the new Hodgepodge Hardware kit to add as an embellishment near the bottom.
For the life of me, I can't recall where I got the inspiration for the 3rd "A Christmas Cardinal" card, but I remembered the general colour scheme and layout from somewhere -- probably from one of many blogs I visit. If it's one of yours, please let me know :)
Later today I'll post some of the contest entries I've been receiving from my newsletter subscribers for the "Fall-themed cards" contest. You still have time to participate... entries must be received by October 31!
Happy stamping everyone,
