McMahon Five Designs release 11/17/11

 I went to town using this new set from McMahon Five Designs- a little under the weather, so did not get it all done....this set is perfect for cards, tags, you name it!  Here are the cards I did finish:

Inspired by Kitty on SCS and her use of the evergreen punch.....
 I used the Sketch from Midnight Madness for this card- my mantle is pure wood cardstock from M5D and I used silk ribbon for the mantle and the bow.  I cut a Prima flower in half for the two side flowers. The fireplace is made using a technique from the TJ's that makes the CS look like wood- I cut mine up to look like a fireplace. I added Gelly roll pen for some shimmer on the stockings:

  All of the images come as digi's black and white and in color as well- as do the sentiments.
Card #2:

 I printed out the three trees on text weight Cryogen white - it is sparkly to start out with. I used TJ Whisped Frames and added MS 'snow' glitter. I used another TJ technique for the red punched strip behind the trees called Glitter Roll with the same glitter. Next, I took metallic tape and rubbed it over a star 'wheel' so there are stars on the middle silver layer. I also punched out stars for the trees.

 Challenges for my cards:
Midnight Madness #130- Sketch for stocking card
365 Cards-#261- color challenge
CRAFT- Stars- tree card- on trees and silver metallic strip
Crimbo Crackers- Make it Sparkly- tree card w/MS snow glitter
