It's Beginning To Feel A Lot Like Christmas!

I have had this great set of Inkadinkado Stamps to play with this time around for my Design Team piece and the detail on the stamps is fabulous and work well stamped individually or with other embellishments and images.
I decided to make a pyramid card for my first piece which is created from Bazzill card stock.  My images have been stamped with Adirondack Inks Red Pepper and Lettuce.  I have also highlighted a couple of areas on my tree using a small circle punch and stamping part of the image again to give a 3D like appearance.  Buttons have been added to embellish along with the addition of a Merry Christmas ticket from Tim's Odds And Ends Set.
On the second side of my pyramid I have stamped the Bauble with Adirondack inks, adding ribbon and BELIEVE from Wendy Vecchi set of stamps JUST WORD ART.   I have added a bird from Tim's Caged Bird die and coloured with DI Fired Brick.  A button and twine have also been added to embellish my bird.
The third side has had the candy cane image added along with a second bird (both birds have been cut from GRUNGEPAPER) along with the Santa Claus image stamped on shrink plastic using StazOn inks.
My second card is a standard folded card, in this case 6 x 6" from Bazzill card.  All my images have been stamped as before with Adirondack Inks.  I have also created a Christmas floral using The Artistic Stamper Flower Power Sheet.  Must admit after creating these I really am getting into the Christmas spirit.

I would also like to enter these pieces for The Play Date Cafe Challenge and our inspiration picture is below.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Tracy xx
