Happy New Year crafty peeps! Ready for a new year of fun challenges? Of course you are! For this week's challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH we want you to use something NEW! (Or, at least, new to you! ☺) Here's what I made:

 and the inside:

My 'new to me' items are the fir tree stamps by Rubber Dance stamps. I purchased this set recently, but haven't until now inked them up. It was time. ☺ This card was fun to make. I used four of the fir stamps and two sizes of pine cones, a few different green inks and was done. Well, almost. It still needed something, so I went over all the needles and pine cones with diamond Stickles.

Ooooh! Shiny!!

So, did you get any new crafty schtuff for Chistmas? Have a stamp set that hasn't been opened yet? It's time to use them! Be sure to link up at Shopping Our Stash - we want to see it! Please also check out what my teammates created while there and leave them some bloggy love! Have a wonderful day!

Very pretty! Nice decision to add the Stickles. (Too nitpicky for me, I think!) Maybe you should come and join us at Naughty or Nice this month... ;)

How wonderful to see you use the Pines Fir Yew set of stamps you ordered from me! They're pretty cool, aren't they? ;-) Love your card, and the Stickles add the perfect icing on the cake.
