Holiday Cards Using Stamp of Approval Supplies

I have a two cards to share today, both of them using Stamp of Approval supplies.  If you've not heard of Stamp of Approval, it's an awesome quarterly set of coordinating stamps and dies (and sometimes stencils, sequins, etc.).  The first collection was Friendship.  The second collection was Holiday Magic.  Both are sold out, but the next collection will be coming out in January, so check it out.

My cards today are for two challenges.  The first was CASology.

For this one, I used my very first stamp set from The Ton, which was part of the Stamp of Approval Holiday Magic set.  It had an amazing collection of holly . . . outline and fill stamps for 2-step stamping.  I used two shades of green and two of red for my holly and berries.  I also used some of the flourishes. 

For my second card, I was inspired by the challenge at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long. There challenge this week . . . White & White!  A card in all white.

The sparkle on this one is not showing in the photos.  I used Irridescent Ice embossing powder from Stampin' Up for the embossing on the front panel, as well as for the raised snowflake dies and sentiment. 

It was fun getting back to creating today.  Hoping to split my time this weekend between hockey (I'm a big fan of my local AHL team), crafting, and creating and organizing ink swatches.
