We run challenge every 2 weeks. You can win awesome prizes too. This time's challenge is to make a Christmas card without using the color of Green or Red.

For today's hop, I prepared 3 cards today feturing the YNS new release stamps. One of these set is called "Bad Hair Day Fhiona" and the others are the winter digis, which are limited editions.
For more styles of the new release stamps, you can click HERE to the Your Next Stamp online store to check them out!

Card #1 - Winter digi shutter card
This card was made using the many winter digis. Since I wanted to put as many digi images to show you as possible, I decided to do this shutter card, so that I can display more images.

Closer view for you to see. The little presents and the trees belong in the same image, but I cut them and put them in seperate places of the card.

The stocking and the little ornment in the middle are in the same image, but again I cut them and put them in seperate area. The holly berries are three seperate pieces, but I put them together as one.

Here is the snowman and the bigger ornament. I added 1/2 pearls on them.

Here is another stocking.

Cardstock: Stampin Up

Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories/extra: Rhinestones, Stickle, 1/2 pearls

Card #2 - Bad Hair Day Fhiona (A)
This card was made using the Bad Hair Day Fhiona set. I layered her hair and slippers. The color scheme I wanted to use was black & white (except for the Fhiona and the cup, because I wanted them to stand out)

Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories/extra: MS Punches, SU punch, rhinestones, Prima flowers, Ribbon

CARD #3 - Bad Hair Day Fhiona (B)
This is another card I made using the YNS "Bad Hair Day Fhiona" set. My card #2 featured Fhiona, so on this card, I featured the cute hair brush. Since the sentiment stated "Bad Hair Days Don't Get Me Down" which of course related to hair, so using the hair brush for this card seems to be the right choice. Well, at least...this would be my choice.
