For my first card, I started by stamping a few of the images from the Nuts About You stamp set to create a little scene.

I love the log in the set and how you can add so many things on top of it. I can't wait to incorporate it into some cards with other stamps in my stash. I did some simple coloring with my alcohol markers.

For my card base, I adhered a piece of patterned paper from the Sweet Sensations paper collection and matted it on top of a piece of brown card stock to help draw in the colors of the log.

I added my stamped and colored focal panel on top with some foam tape for added dimension.  some fun bronze pearls finish off the card.

For my second card, I am using the adorable Holly - Just Breezin' By set. I absolutely love Holly and this little image of her carrying a nest full of birds is just too cute.

I first used the Rainy Day stencil to sponge on some light blue ink for a cloudy background.  I then used the Coming up Daisies stencil to add a couple layers of grass to ground Miss Holly.

I stamped sweet little Holly and I love that the butterfly images that are part of the image match the separate butterfly images that are also in the set.  I stamped the individual butterfly along with the trio of butterflies, making sure that some of them went off the page.

I did quick and easy coloring on my butterflies, stamped the sentiment and then called this card good.

TIP - you don't always have to color all of the images and you can still have a sweet card.
