Greetings friends! The July release had with it new layered stencils. I chose the new holly stencil because I knew I would use it a lot for holiday cards. 
For both of my cards today, I created a holly background by first using the leaf stencil and sponging it with Turf and Shamrock green ink and then placed the berry stencil on top and sponged it with cherry ink. The stencils allows you to choose colors to match your card or your aesthetics. I went with bright, vibrant colors, but you could go with muted colors or even metallics if you chose. I worked with inks, but you could also use your favorite paints if you prefer.
For my dog card, I colored the puppy with Copic markers and popped up the sentiment onto one of the new round label dies.
For my second card, I used an image from the July red rubber kit that features vintage Christmas items.

 I stamped the stocking onto white cardstock and then colored it with Prismacolor pencils. I then added a sentiment from the same July red rubber kit.

Here is what the two parts of the stencil I used for the card look like:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
