MFTWSC105-Let's Celebrate

***if you are here for my Season's Givings Blog Hop Post, either scroll down, or look for it here***  

Hey everyone, and happy Wednesday!! That means it is time for another Wednesday Stamp Club challenge from My Favorite Things! It's MY favorite
                                               sketch challenge!

For my card today, I used the a la modes Cheers set, which is one of my favorites! I paired it with one of the Echo Park This&That paper pads. I cut my circles out with the Circle Stax Die-namics, and my scallops were cut out of Hot Fudge cardstock with the Double Scallop Border Die-namics. I used Fossil and Sweet Tooth cardstock as well, and my image was colored on X-Press It blending card. My ribbon is Hot Fudge grosgrain, and I attached my sentiment flag with some hemp cord. I also used a spiral clip, and some Michael's brads.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:

Tonight, I made a card, and a matching treat box using a few of the new Die-namics, and both new sets. 

For my card, I started with my cardstock colors: Sweet Tooth, Cotton Candy, Wild Cherry, and Black Licorice. My paper is from the Your Truly collection from Echo Park. I used it to cut out some of my hearts, as well as my Sweet Tooth cardstock. I stamped hearts on the Sweet Tooth cardstock using Wild Cherry ink.  I added some scallops from the Simply Scalloped Medium Die-namics, and embellished with Sweet Tooth Grosgrain, Maraschino Twine, Charcoal Twine, Michael's brads, Black Licorice, and Wild Cherry buttons. My sentiment was stamped on the Framed Greetings Die-namics with Black Licorice ink.

For the inside, I used the new Hearts and Stitches set along the bottom with Wild Cherry ink. I added more of the Echo Park Yours Truly paper to the top, and another heart cut out with the Rustic Hearts Die-namics. My sentiment was stamped with the new Black Licorice ink pad being released this month!!

For my next creation, I used the new Square Pillowbox Die-namics in Cotton Candy. I added a strip of the Yours Truly paper from Echo park, some Sweet Tooth grosgrain with Charcoal Twine around it to secure it. For my sentiment embellishment, I stamped my saying with Black Licorice ink on Sweet Tooth cardstock that was cut out with the Rustic Hearts Die-namics. I also added one using my paper, and finished it off with a Black Licorice button and some Maraschino Twine.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:
