I have used the digi image from our sponsor" Milk Coffee Stamp ", Tree, Leaves, Mushroom were die cuts from Sizzix ; CC Design.  And I also used Martha Stewart to punched out the fence.

Guest Designer from Our Sponsor, Milk Coffee Stamps' DT

Mary J
used Martha Stewart snowflake and snowflake border punch and also the My Favorite Things fishtail banner die. The papers are from the Echo Park Wintertime collection.
I have used DP from Bo Bunny (Apple Cider), a Magnolia stamp which I coloured in with Pro Markers. I have used lots of Magnolia dies and Stampin Up punches. Added some glitter, stick on pearls and hatpins for some added sparkle.

I have used two spellbinders die lite dies, and an A2 matting basics die.  I also used a mica mask for the background paper.  Other items came from my stash...

On this card have I used an image from The Paper Shelter called Candy Skiing. It's coloured with my Letraset family. Punches use are from Martha Stewart for the different snowflakes, some spellbinder dies and a border punch of unknown brand is also used. Designer papers are from Bearly Mine Design.

For this card I used the lovely image from LOTV. Papers are from Majadesign and all the die cuts are from Magnolia.
For my CAS card I used I Marianne die cut "birthday" word and a Martha Stewart 3 in1 butterfly punch.

I used a LOTV stamp with die cuts by Marianne and Memory Box.

I've used a gorgeous image from our sponsor Milk Coffee, and coloured with Promarkers. I cut the image with a Spellbinders label die, and matted with a layer cut with the equivalent decorative label. I punched snowflakes out of the white backing card, and softened the corners with a corner rounder punch.

For my card I have used a House Mouse stamp coloured with my ProMarkers. I have used my MS Doily Lace punch and 2 different Die-namics snowflakes dies.

I cut out the three hearts from an old book using spellbinders dies,  sewed them down the middle and attached to the base card. The hearts and card have been gessoed and inked.

I have used 3 die cuts to mat and layer my lovely LOTV image and then 3 punches for the sentiment.

I have used Marianne Design dies (English Rose) in both sizes and also the leaves to cut funky foam and embellish a wooden photo frame which I painted to match my bedroom decor.

I have used an image from Make It Crafty, and my punches are the border in green, the flowers, and the dies are the image and the mat behind the image, both from Spellbinders.

I've made a "Santa's Magic Key" hanging.  I used a Tim Holtz label die as well as oval and round punches. Stamps are Kanban and American Crafts.

I've created my card using a beautiful Milk Coffee image. I've used dies from Marianne, Sizzix (Tim Holtz) and Spellbinders, plus a Martha Stewart punch.
I have used "Tiffany Fairy" from our wonderful sponsors at Milk Coffee Stamps. I thought she would be perfect for my Niece's birthday card. I have used my Framelits Label Dies and my Eyelet border bunch. Coloured with Stampin' Write markers and finished off with a little Diamond Stickles.
I have used My Mind's Eye Lost and Found (Portobello Rd) papers, and die cut both the mats with Spellbinders. The flowers and fancy border are also Spellbinders! And the letters are die cut with my X-Cut alphabet die.

I have made a Candle-Book Card...I used a stamp from Inkadinkado ,BossKut Leaf Flourish die cut ,
Snowflake punchie from Woodware and Reindeer from Personal Impressions...
I chose to make a Christmas Card using "Charlotte at the Cloud" from our sponsor, Milk Coffee. I used a Spellbinders die to cut out my image and a Creative Memories Border Maker for my punch.
