a creative mind at work in the deep dark basement

I have to say that I love The {Stamps} of Life sets, I love creating with them...but this set is OVER THE TOP AWESOME!!!

I absolutely had a creative time with them and was on a roll.  I love all the possibilities of this tile set!!

Hope you like the variety of cards, I've already got a little holiday stash going on, which is out of the norm for me.

I'm usually last minute Betty when it comes to creating Christmas cards, so when I saw this tile set I thought that a Christmas card would look pretty cool with it.  What do you think?

Card details:
Stamps: Tiles2Stamp, and Lights4Christmas from The {Stamps} of Life
Card Stock: Confetti White, Real Red, Basic Black, Glorious Green
Inks: Color Box by Stephanie Barnard in Licorice, Strawberry and Spearmint
Embellishments: Basic Grey enamel dots

My bows need some practice, this one took me forever!  The patterned to fill in the tiles give you so many options on how you want to create your card.  Whether it's the whole background on the card, or just a strip, these tiles are great.

Card details:
Stamps: Tiles2Stamp from The {Stamps} of Life
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Tempting Turquoise
Inks: Color Box by Stephanie Barnard in Chocolate, Temping Turquoise
Embellishments: Chocolate Chip ribbon

I broke out my paper crimper for this one to create the little strip below the twine.  With the border pattern I wanted to add a little more to it, so I colored in the overlapping rectangles in black.
