I am really not ready for the holiday season to begin, but it sure is fun playing with new stamps! Today I am sharing some fun samples with the new releases from Gina K. Today features Joyful Holiday and Beyond Baskets

First card is with the newest holiday set by Theresa called Joyful Holiday. It's a great mix of traditional holiday sentiments and images, perfect for that elegant holiday card.

A chocolate base layered with some red really pops, don't you think? A simple button with some bakers twine in the corner and some sparkle on the berries...in real life they look like ice on the berries.

Melanie created a fun new set with this adorable wagon! I had to fill it with some holiday goodies..... I stamped the wagon twice to give it that dimension, popped the wagon up on pop dots, then added some red buttons to the wheels....
