 Now on to my card:
Isn´t this little sheep just so cute with all it´s gift stacked over each other??? I´m totally in love with all the sheep characters in the Fleece Navidad set. 
I started off with a teal cardbase and stamped some snowflakes from the older set Little darling winter on top of it in the same teal ink color.  I then topped the card with a strip of some gold foil, blackberry cardstock and some foiled snowflake designer paper. 

I then took a golden snowflake doilie that I had in my stash and topped it with a stitched circle to give that cute little sheep a frame, that it deserves. 
The sheep and it´s presents were colored with shimmer paint in frosty white and watercolors. after everything was dry I added some white details to the image to give it more depth and interest. I popped the sheep up with some foam pads and placed it in the middle of the stitched circle and placed the entire snowflake-frame piece  in the middle of the card. 

This set has many great sentiments to choose from and you can build up your sentiments as well. I picked the "Happy Holidays" and the" to ewe and yours" and stamped it in Blackberry ink in the bottom right corner to finish off the card and I love the font of it as well.

October Release Preview | Your Next Stamp

Hello and Thank you so much for stopping by today!!!

Today I´m going to share a Sneak Peek of Your Next Stamp's October Release that will go live tomorrow. There will be a lot of awesome stamps for the holidays and great embellishments as well.

To see all the amazing Sneak Peeks please go to the Your Next Stamp Blog and there you will find a list with tons of inspiration from all the supertalented ladies from the Design Team.

Now to my christmassy project.

For my card I picked the small stampset Stocking stuffers Aren´t these little critters just too cute in their little stockings, waiting for the children to awake on christmas morning?

For my card I picked a white cardbase and layered some holly designer paper on top and decorated the edges with some  mossy meadow and cherry cobbler cardstock. I punched the green cardstock before adhering it behind the designer paper.

I then diecute a stitched oval from some gold foild cardstock and used it as my background panel for the adorable stocking critters. The entire Image is so full of details and cuteness. I watercolored the image on some shimmery white cardstock and used the same red and green as in the cardstock and then some of my favorite color combinations for the holidays.

A favorite little detail is the cute little mouse on the very right with her small envelope full of happymail from Santa.

For the sentiment I used the "Joyful Greetings" that is included in the set and stamped it on a white banner in mossy meadow again. Afterwards I layered the some red and green cardstcok behind it to give it more depth.

Last but not least I added some little bling from the new golden glittery Gumdrops on the background paper and on the envelope of the hedgehog.  These enamel dots are very shiny and shimmery and give the card just the perfect finish.

 So now that you know the drill I want to show you my Project for the Bloghop. 
I picked the Lucky Friends stampset from Heffy Doodle for my card and I used my MISTI to make it. 

I just love this happy little leprechaun that Lesley created. So now on showing you how I made this cute card. 

For the base I took some whisper white cardstock and cut and scored it portrait wise. 
I then made two light pencil lines on it with my t-ruler to know where to start my rainbow sentiment to it would be straight right from the start. After that I ligned up my sentiment ´I´m so lucky`  from the lucky friends stampset and a little shamrock on the pencil line in my MISTI and picked it up with the acrylic door. I inked the stamp up in red and stamped my first line onto the cardbase. 
After the first stamping I shifted the cardstock a quarter inch higher and stamped another red sentiment. I then continued this process with all colors of the rainbow two times to have a sentiment rainbow on my cardbase. 
After the sentiment stamping was done I added the little shamrock on the other side of the sentiment to have the sentiment kinda framed.

As I love rainbows I always have some rainbow scraps laying arround and I used one of them to stamp my continues sentiment `to have you on my life` on it before I diecut it using the strips of ease die to cut the perfect sentiment strip.

For the little leprechaun I stamped the leprechaun in memento tuxedo black and colored him using alcohol markers and diecut him using the coordinating dies. As always I added some white details using a gel pen from Sakura before popping him up on foamdots  To add a little bling to the project I diecut the Lucky from golden glimmer cardstock using the lucky heffycut die.  I also added some golden sequins all over the card like the golden coins of the leprechaun.

So here you have it my lucky friend card for the awesome Heffy Doodle- My sweet Petunia Bloghop
Have you ever used this shifting technique on a card before using the MISTI?
