"Winter Scenes"
I have a couple of cards to show you today with today's featured stamp set!  I'll start off with my newest card.  For this card, I sponged lots of color onto my card stock while I was thinking about the scene I wanted to stamp.  When it came time to stamp my image, it was super easy as all of the Mark's Finest Papers stamps are clear stamps.  I positioned my image so that it looked like a sunset scene!!

My second card is one that you might have already seen, if you started today's blog hop at the Mark's Finest Papers blog.  I started with a black card base for this one.  I stamped the building stamps four times.  I stamped them 3 times in gray and one time in yellow.  I trimmed out just one of the buildings in yellow and popped it up for interest.  Then I embossed my sentiment in white.  There you have an easy clean and simple card!
Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to head on over to Sue's blog to see what creation she has in store.

The sponging on your first card is exquisite, and your cluster of skyscrapers on the second looks really nice. Two lovely cards!

Wow, to both creations! Love the first and how it's framed out and the sentiment with the bling is perfect. The second card is just awesome.

Your cards are beautiful! I especially love the second card - it's as if everyone in the big city is asleep - but the folks in the one unit!! Wonderful!
