I decided to use one of my favorite bundles: Wondrous
Wreath. For my sample I chose the Peaceful Wreath stamp that's in the
Holiday Catalog There's one more stamp that matches the die - and if
you count the Circle of Spring Stamp set - that's a real deal - three
wreath stamps that all go with one die! Wreaths work with every season
and they are such fun to make!
Here's my card:
and a closeup:
embossed the wreath with gold embossing powder and watercolored the
leaves with Mossy Meadow and my Aqua Painter. I used my Cherry Cobbler
Stampin' Write marker to color the berries. I tried watercoloring, but
the berries were too pastel.

Penguins are so much fun! This month I decided to try out my Snow Place Bundle. I had a penguin tree in mind after seeing Donna Mundinger's card she did with Cricut. In my variation, I made six penguins and dressed them with a glimmer paper top hat and dazzling diamonds for the Santa Hat fur. I can just imagine them dancing!
I hand-cut a tree card. I drew a tree 5-1/2" tall by 5" wide at the base. I cut one tree with Whisper White thick cardstock and one with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. I put them together with the new tear-away adhesive.
Here's the bundle:
