Technostamper Challenge 186

 Happy Tuesday!  I know that I haven't been posting much this summer.  I have been really busy...

But I am getting back into the Stampin' mode again!  So this week I am participating in Mary Jo's challenge again and hope to be each week going forward....

This week I used a couple of the new sets from the new Holiday mini catalog that will be coming out September 1st.

My Sister-in-law with neice and nephew are visiting, so they helped me break in my new toys!!
The first card I made using the Stitched Stockings set from the new mini catalog.  I just can't resist a stamp set that has a matching punch!  I never like to do all the cutting.
I used the new embossing folder from the mini for the background.  I then sprayed it with a little shimmer spray to add some sparkle.  I used the Holiday designer paper from the new catalog, Letters to Santa. 

The second card, my Sister-in-Law, Sarah, designed using the new Halloween set Howl-o-ween Creeps and the designer paper, pick your poison.  I love these cute little characters.
The third card, my neice Hannah (8) made using the same cardstocks that I used.  She took some scrap ribbon and braided it to make the ribbon across the bottom of the card.

Don't forget to check out what everyone else did with this sketch challenge!

Happy Stampin'

Marilyn, these are so cute. I really love the stocking one. What a great idea to string them like that. Love them. Thanks so much for playing along with my challenge this week! Hope you summer has been wonderful!
