HELLO!!
Welcome to the Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop!! You're in for a "REAL" Treat today as there are SEVERAL Special Designers joining us to give you some EXTRA Inspiration for those last minute Holiday Projects, plus a SPECIAL "Ginger Snap Stamp Set" with Purchase for a limited time!!
I have SEVERAL Projects to share,  so lets jump right in!! =)
For my First Project I Started with the NEW "Plaid Stencil" Set and "Argyle Stencil" Set along with Distress Inks and some WoW Glitter Embossing Powder and created a BEAUTIFUL Holiday Plaid Background!! 

Then I used the "Newton's Candy Cane" Stamp Set and Stamped and Embossed the images and used used the coordinating "Newton's Candy Cane" Die Set and Die Cut them out!! 
I used Candied Apple Distress Ink, Tumbled Glass and Inked the Plaid Stencil!! Then used Versa Mark Ink to Stencil the Argyle Stencil and added WoW Glitter Embossing Powder to add some Sparkle!! 
I used Copic Markers to Color in the Images and added some Tonic Studios Aqua Shimmer Pen for some added Sparkle!! For the Card Front Panel I used the "Snowfall Stencil" and some Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass to add some texture to the background of the Panel!! I Die Cut a Black Base using the NND Framework Die Set!!  I Stamped and Embossed the sentiment and I used some WoW Glitter Embossing Powder in Red to make the "SWEET" word POP!! I Die Cut a Mug from Paper Sweeties from some Tim Holtz Patterned Paper and added a Heart Image also from the "Newton's Candy Cane" Stamp Set!! I LOVE how it turned out!!
For my Second Card I used the Same two Stencil Sets to create my Holiday Plaid Background!! Then I added WoW Glitter Embossing Powder in Red for this one!! I LOVE the versatility of these stencils and the unlimited possibilities for Color combos and designs you can create!! 
I've used the   to Ink my Card Panel Background again using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment and used WoW Glitter Embossing Powder in Red to make the "CHEER" word POP!! I used the NND Essential Alphabet Dies to Die Cut the Letter "H" from some Black Cardstock and some Fun Foam!! I adhered them together using some Therm O Web Liquid Adhesive!! Then I Stamped and Embossed the Images form the "Cup of Cocoa" Stamp Set and Die Cut them out using the coordinating "Cup of Cocoa" Die Set!! I added some iCraft 3D Foam Squares and adhered them to the Card panel!! For the Scalloped Edges I used the NND Frames & Flags Die Set!! 

If you follow me you may KNOW my Lil' Artist in Training Gryeson!! He's 5 yrs. old and started Kindergarten this Fall!! So he doesn't get to craft with me as much as he used too, but he was able to make a couple Ornaments for the Blog Hop today!! We have Gifts all ready for his Teachers for the Holidays and he wanted to include an Ornament for each of the Packages!! For this first one he used the Ornamental Newton Stamp Set and the coordinating Ornamental Newton Die Set!! He colored it with Copic Markers and then for the Ornament Base we Die Cut a Piece of Glitter Foam and he colored over it with a Red and Silver Crayon!! We backed it with some Gold Cardstock and we Stamped and Greeting and he signed his Name and the Year!! Then we punched a hole in the top, added Newton with some Gina K Designs Foam Tape and added some May Arts Gold Twine for the String!!
For his Next Ornament he used the All Aboard for Christmas Stamp Set and the coordinating All  Board for Christmas Die Set!! He colored it with Copic Markers and he wanted to make it look like a Night Sky so we added some Versa Mark Ink to the top of the Gold Glitter Fun Foam Circle Die Cut and added some WoW Glitter Embossing Powder!! The Circle shrunk alittle when we heated it up, so we added it to a Grey Cardstock Circle and Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment on the back and he signed his name and the Year!! We LOVE the way these turned out and I just KNOW his Teachers will cherish them!!
