I think this is my favourite from the September release.  This little bears are so sweet!!  I used Copic greys to shade the bears and then I cut them out.  The sky was created using Copics and then splattered with thinned white Gesso to create the stars. The sentiment was stamped and then embossed with black embossing powder.  The snowflake is an MS punch.  Now see what  happens with this card......


It's a pop up card!!  I got the idea from Simon Says Stamps blog.  Thank you!!  Isn't that so sweet.  The window was made using a Window die from YNS.  Here's another view of the card.

Hi, and welcome to another Wonderful Wednesday challenge.  Today I am using the stamp set called "Fancy Flamingo's".  Such a cute stamp!!  I really loved how Kelli, another Krafty girl inter-twined the flamingo's together.  So I am "lifting" her idea!!  Thanks Kelli!!  I sponged on the clouds with Tumbled Glass distress ink and then used Copics to create the beach sand and a bit of the ocean.  The birds were also colored with Copics then cut out so that I could use Kelli's idea.  The designer paper is from the Doodlebug - Fun In The Sun paper pad.  The little band of flamingo's on the bottom of the card is Washi Tape.  The Loopy Doily Border Die and the leaf flourish are by La-La-Land.  The Fish Tail die is by YNS.  Then I added a few flowers, a button and some twine to finish it off! 
The stamp set comes with a few tiny stamps and I used the little flower to finish the inside of the card.



Thanks for stopping and have a great week!!
