The colors didn't turn out very well at all here & I totally apologize! So please go grab your SU! Color Coach so you can get a true color visual ~ ~ I chose my colors direct from the wheel ;o)
Ya' ready? Here are the cardstock colors:
Rose Red is the base
Cameo Coral is behind the Naturals Ivory
Certainly Celery & Cameo Coral is the punched Circle of Friendship
I used the Burst into Bloom stamp set and used the same stampin' pad colors mentioned above along with Barely Banana and stamped the flowers randomly on the Naturals Ivory cardstock. I then stamped the Circle of Friendship stamp on the Certainly Celery cardstock using Garden Green ink. I also stamped this same image again on Cameo Coral. I punched out the Cameo Coral image inside using the 1/2" circle punch and adhered that to the center of the larger image using a stampin' dimensional, just to make it 'pop'!
Then I took my larger circle punch again and punched out approximately 1/2 of a circle from my flap. I then applied a few stampin' dimensionals to the back of my large Circle of Friendship image and stuck that down so the 1/2 circle would be just snug behind that image ~ just enough to hold it down but easy enough to pull it up...make sense? Take a peek at the pictures and I think you will get a 'visual' as to what I am trying to explain here.
Then to just finish it all off I tied a piece of Apricot Grosgrain ribbon around the card front! This is a very fun card to make -- and really easy! What a great way to demo the Circle of Friendship or the Riveting stamp sets! I think I'll be making more like this one!!
I must send my thanks to JanTink for this layout ~ it's just awesome!! You must see her awesome layout too ~ here it tis'!
As always, here is my recipe that I am sharing with my workshop attendees:
Stamp Sets: Circle of Friendship, Burst into Bloom
Card Stock: Rose Red, Cameo Coral, Naturals Ivory, Certainly Celery
Stampin’ Pads: Garden Green, Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery, Barely Banana
Accessories: Apricot Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals, 1 ¼” Circle Punch, ½” Circle Punch

Here is a fun one -- this is actually the last one of the bunch -- I personally demo 3 ideas and then the 4th we always do as a make and take --- meaning each participant gets to make this card and take it home with them!!
The base of this card is Bravo Burgundy card stock with a piece of Apricot Appeal placed on the front with 'sweet' from the 'Sweet Shapes' stamp set stamped in the lower corner. Then the 'Lots of Hearts' jumbo wheel is ran across a piece of Ultrasmooth Vanilla cardstock using the Bravo Burgundy Jumbo cartridge. (You know I just love this wheel and the only place it is pictured in the IB&C is in the back listed with the wheels?!!!) Then to get a quick 'edge' on the vanilla cardstock I jut ask the participants to 'fan or shave' the sides thru the stamp pad. Then to just finish it off we wrap a piece of the celery grosgrain ribbon around it to tie it all together -- I think the celery color gives the card a bit of the 'candy hearts' looks --- sweet treats you know? *wink wink*
Special thanks to SCS'er billsbrowneyedgirl for her inspiration on this card ~ I absolutely loved her color combo and was going to use it ..but.. for all the demos I had scheduled in January, and I wasnt going to be personally ordering in the meantime, I had to change my color combo to match what I had on hand for cardstock quantities.
As always, here is a list of ingredients (same as above but listed here again):
Stamp Sets: Lots of Hearts Jumbo Wheel, Sweets Shapes
Cardstock: Bravo Burgundy, Apricot Appeal, Ultrasmooth Vanilla
Stampin' Pads: Bravo Burgundy and Bravo Burgundy Jumbo Cartridge
Accessories: Celery Grosgrain Ribbon

I used the Spring Flowers designer paper for this batch, along with the 'flirty' ribbon from the Winter Mini. On the close up of the front of the tea bag book, its hard to see but the brown flirty ribbon is running down on the chocolate chip card stock...I just love that brown ribbon..its so fun and forgiving to work with!! I also had 3 left to do and was running short on the flirty so I grabbed my stitched grosgrain for a different look as well.

My DH agreed to keep the tree and presents in the truck till' it snowed...even if it was after Christmas! Now Santa is sitting in the drivers seat there, but the snow on the window is blocking the view just a bit here...I didnt want to walk up and clear the window for the pic as that may disrupt the ground with my foot prints for the picture...oh what dilemmas !! lol
Now tonight, the tree and packages are gone and we are dreaming of what could be next ..... I have consulted the IB&C Loads of Love accessories and it shows hearts for Valentine's Day...but I am looking for more ideas...anyone?! I would love to hear what ideas you have for the bed of our version of the 'loads of love' truck!!!
Oh, I posted the 'Autumn Thoughts and Creations' version of the truck back on November 14th here on my blog....take a look at that too ;o))

The picture does not show all of the detail so I will start with the background and work forward. I started with real red cardstock as my base. I ran whole sheets thru my computer printer and printed a quick note (times two) on the inside to family and friends so they didnt think we were "MIA" *lol*. I then cut those into 2 cards. On the front of each one I used the snowfakes from the stamp set 'The Snowflake Spot' and stamped real red snowflakes on the real red cardstock just to 'fill in the space'. I then silver embossed 'Cheers' in the lower right hand corner of each card front. The card fronts were then set aside.
Next, I started on the big snowflakes. I silver embossed those on the brushed silver carstock and then used the ticket corner punch in the bottom two corners only. I attached the brushed silver cs to bliss blue cardstock and then punched a 1/16" hole and adhered two silver brads. I then attached that to a piece of almost amethyst cardstock, leaving it a bit longer at the top. I then scored and folded the top down and tore the edge across to give it a different look before wrapping the fun fancy fibers ~ Scarlet ~ around the card a few times and adhering that to the front of the card.
This card was inspired by a few SCS'ers that I want to give credit to!! I really liked the card that JeanneS had posted awhile back here. I just loved her colors!! Also, I recently received an RAK in the mail from TracyTripp and in her card she had sent me some of the Scarlet Fancy Fibers. I totally forget about using this fun stuff! So I pulled out what I had and put it to use in my New Years cards here!! Thanks Ladies for your inspiration!!!
As always, here is a list of my 'ingredients':
Stamp Sets: The Snowflake Spot, All Year Cheer III (for the Happy New Year stamp for the inside of the card)
Card Stock: Real Red, Bashful Blue, Almost Amethyst, Brushed Sliver
Stampin' Pads: Real Red, Basic Black
Accessories: Fancy Fibers -- Scarlet, Ticket Corner Punch, Silver Brads, 1/16" Circle Punch, Sterling Silver Embossing Powder, The Tearing Edge
