Stamp Off Negative Space with Leaflets Framelits

I'm glad you're here, to check out my Stamp Off
Challenge with Buffy and Susan!

Today we are playing with negative space.  Not negative
people (because Susan and Buffy are special, delightful ladies),
but the creation of a shape in the top layer of a card,
that is colored or layered beneath.
I am often challenged to come up with a sympathy card,
because emotion or concern for the other, messes with
my creativity.  Since the leaves have been falling,
I was really inspired to create a negative space with the 
Leaflets Framelits on page 193.
 I felt that this beautiful plaid from the Warmth & Cheer DSP stack (on page 13 of the Holiday Catalog) set the perfect mood.
The sentiment comes from the Flourishing Phrases set
on page 49 of SU annual catalog.  This set has
a selection of wonderful sentiments.  I forgot to take a picture
of the inside of this card, but the corresponding message
appears within.
The Garden Green Baker's Twine comes from the Trio Pack
on page 16 of the Holiday catalog.
Now click on over to see what Susan and Buffy 
did with their negative spaces!!

Glitter Embossed Wondrous Wreath

I can never get enough of Christmas cards.  Given interesting
supplies, I could make Christmas cards from October to December.
Speaking of interesting, SU offered Emerald Envy and
Real Red Glitter Emboss Powder on page 7 of the Holiday catty.
I love the stuff.  It's hard to take a picture of, but packs
a ton of sparkle.  This glittery sparkle works great with
the Wondrous Wreath set on page 32 of the Annual Catalog.
I just added a touch of Red Glimmer Paper (p 175) and
a Glimmer Paper bow from the Pretty Pines Thinlits dies
on page 19 of the Holiday catalog.
I really like the two bows in this Thinlits Dies set, because they
are thin and act as a great replacement for a traditional bow.

Cookie Cutter Eskimo

Cookie Cutter Christmas, on page 6 of the Holiday Catalog
is a very enjoyable set.  The bonus is the Cookie Cutter
Builder Punch that makes all the fun easy to cut out.
This little fellow is layered on the Warmth & Cheer
Designer Series Paper (page 13).
