Hey everyone! I have a fun card for you today which uses the Nothing Better Than set with some creative masking and stamping with my Stamparatus! It's for two challenges: The Spot's sketch and the Christmas Kickstart Festive Sweet Treats challenge!

I grabbed some Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler cardstocks, some Plaid Tidings DSP, my stamp sets and ink and went to work:
The Cherry Cobbler panel was first embossed with a Wrapped In Texture EF, then I diecut a Nested Label panel and began inking up my stamps. To only use a portion of the sentiment, I lined the stamp up on the Stamparatus, put a wee little piece of Scotch tape on the word that I didn't want to show, inked my stamp, then pulled off the tape carefully so as not to get any stray ink anywhere...then stamped! I used a portion of a sentiment from Banner Year for the "Christmas" and a portion of the Nothing Better Than for the "make everything better". After that, it was easy peasy to stamp and diecut the cookies, add a banner from some Mossy Meadow DSP and as an afterthought (although it really doesn't match) I added a little green glimmer paper banner from some retired glimmer paper.
And here's the inside, using a sentiment from Wrapped in Christmas, diecut with the scallop die from Little Treat Box:
Personally, chocolate chip cookies (no nuts, please) are my absolute favorite Christmas cookie....and they're acceptable at other times of the year as well!
A few more pix from around the yard:
Some sedum, and then some mushrooms...not my favorite but they must serve a purpose for something!
And a busy little bee that thinks my salvia is the best thing ever! Speaking of bees, we needed another visit from the bee man as the pesky yellowjackets didn't evacuate 100%!!!
Thanks for popping in today--enjoy your day and be blessed!
