Anything Goes for Stamps R Us

Welcome to 2012 and a new Stamps R Us challenge! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and you're ready for some stamping fun. The Stamps R Us challenge is being sponsored by the Stamping Boutique this week and the theme is to show us what you got for Christmas, and if you didn't get any stamping goodies, then anything goes! I'm using the picnic basket image which just puts me in the mood for warm weather. Winter just began here a week or so ago, but I can dream can't I? LOL I colored the image with Copics, and used Blossom dies for the image and mat. I used a lacy eyelet border die from SNSS and wove some PTI berry sorbet ribbon through it for interest, adding a separate bow to the bottom of the image panel. The dp is from the wild asparagus pad and I added some spica glitter pen accents to the flowers and heart on the tag, along with some white gel pen accents on the apple and grapes.
So now that the holidays are behind us, grab those new goodies and show us what you got with this challenge! As always, you'll have two weeks to upload your creation and there's always a generous prize from our sponsor. Be sure to check out the fabulous cards my fellow DT members have made by clicking right here.
Thanks for dropping by and have yourself a wonderful kick-off week to the new year!

This is so perfect in every way, from the sweet image to the paper. Love the way you did the ribbon through the punch.

Carol, So very pretty. Your fruit and flowers look life like. Outstanding shading and highlighting on the those grapes. They really do look good enough to eat. As a matter of fact I think I'll run down to the kitchen and get some grapes right now. That ribbon is such a beautiful color and it looks so nice weaved through the die. I'm going to try to enter this challenge. We'll see if I can get my act together.
Talk Soon.

Fab card Carol and it does remind me of warmer weather. It is coloured beautifully but those grapes look like you could pull them and pop them in your mouth.

Love your wonderful picnic basket, Carol. Your ribbon color is fabulous and so is the card.I'm dreaming right along with you. I just told hubby I wish it could be 85 degrees (my favorite temp), but it is more like 45 today.
