One of my granddogs is a Husky. The Newton's Nook Husky is featured on this birthday card. She is in the Winter Woofs set making a snowman. I eliminated the snowman and put birthday packages from the Newton's Nook Christmas Cuddles set in its place.
Background paper is from Stampin Up. Sentiment is from i.o. The frame is a die by i.o.
All images are stamped in Memento and colored with Copics.
Some sparkle is added with Spica and Stickles.

This Turnabout Dahlia stamp was in that video. I ordered it immediately but the holidays got in the way of my playing with it. So FINALLY I put some ink on that stamp and went about following Jennifer's lead. I used colors I had on hand. (I did order the Hero Arts Satin Pearl Embossing Powder that Jennifer used and I'm so happy to have it. It is beautiful!)
The Turnabout stamp is explained well by Jennifer and also on the Concord and 9th website.
It's easy to use and incredibly addictive. I still have a long list of different inks, embossing powders and papers I want to try with this stamp. I also have put the matching die at the top of my Wish List.
The photos do not do justice to the shine and texture that the various inks and embossing powders give to these cards. They are not sparkly. They are shiny.
After the holiday creative block, this stamp was just what I needed to get my mojo back.

I know I say this a lot but THIS is my new favorite stamp set. It's from Neat and Tangled. The animals have such cut personalities. I love their little faces. Most of the images can be used year-round, not just for the holidays.
Background paper is from Bella Blvd.
Stickles and Glossy Accents give it some sparkle.

Day 11 Carolyn Peeler and Angie Backman
The linkup has closed for this challenge. However I wanted to share this Hanukkah card.
The background plaid is from a Concord and 9th background stamp that I love. It has a separate narrow line that can be added to the plaid. That is where you see the heat embossed silver.
Sunny Studio makes the bear stamp set.
