I keep telling myself I don't need any more dies, LOL then someone like Sue Wilson comes out with this gorgeous new dies that I got at Joan's Garden.  She can order any of them if you ask her.  What I like about Sue Wilson dies is that she is a card maker so she understands about using the dies in many different ways and they work together in her series. She has lots of videos on her dies and different cards here.   I started this 5x7 card with cryogen white paper, added a layer of gold and then made the panel out of the cryogen and ran it through the snowflake cuttlebug folder.  I added some stickles on the white panel that don't show in the photo and attached the peace to it.  The poinsettia and holly leaves are from Cheery Lynn and the pearl rope and dove are from Michaels.  Thanks for stopping.

Cheery Lynn Non-traditional colors

Non traditional colors is the Christmas challenge at Cheery Lynn this week. I started this 6x6 white card and then added a 5x5 square that I had ran through the embossing in a soft pink.  I added a pink peel off glittery border around both of those layers.  The pretty squares mixed in the center are the Dutch Scalloped and I turned the second one which almost makes it look like a big snowflake.  I stamped the image on the French Flair scalloped stacker die and edged it with distressed ink in Victorian Velvet.  I stamped the gorgeous Power Poppy poinsettia image in memento black and colored it with copics.  I added a bow and the saying is a peel off that I colored to match with my copics and some gems to finish the card.  I'm also entering this in the Power Poppy Peep of the Week challenge.

Lots of Poinsettias

Have you participated in the Power Poppy Peep of the Week Challenge?  They have these new amazing Christmas stamps and it's so easy to join the fun!!! I love this gorgeous poinsettia set and pretty sayings to compliment them.  This is the screen divider card that Split Coast has a video on.  I used a Martha Stewart punch and Sissex punch to create the screen divider.  I just edged the images and card in gold pen to finish the card. 

High Low Glitter

I made this pretty glitter card for the Power Poppy Peep of the Week Challenge.  I used a Spellbinders die on sticky paper and removed the edges and sprinkled them with pink glitter then I removed the covering on the rest of the card and sprinkled it with white snow glitter.  The saying is stamped on the inside piece of the die and I used the cute little holly leaves from this gorgeous new Let and Heaven and Nature Sing from Power Poppy also.

Power Poppy stand up card

What fun it was to make this card. I'm using three of the new Christmas stamp sets from Power Poppy and entering this in the Peep of the Week Challenge on the Power Poppy blog.  This card is made by watching the Screen Divider video on Split Coast Stampers.   I stamped all the images and sentiment in Memento black and colored them with copics. I edged everything with Tea Dye distressed ink and backed the panels with gold foil paper.  The holly border is a Martha Stewart punch and bottom is a Sissex punch.  You can tie a ribbon around the card to close it for mailing.

Pink and red poinsettia

Once again I"m using this new gorgeous poinsettia from Power Poppy stamps.  I'm entering this also in the Peep of the Week challenge.  This 6x6 card started with a red card and then I lined the pretty paper from Wild Rose Studios Holly Lane with a silver pen and some distressed ink.  I cut the image and backing die from a Sue Wilson die and stamped the gorgeous poinsettia with Memento black ink and colored it with copics.  The I covered the entire thing with versamark and embossed it with holographic EP.  It's so glittery and pretty.  I added the ribbon which I enhanced with some Victorian velvet distressed ink.   To finish this card I used the Cheery Lynn leaf and poinsettia dies and added a gem to the center.  Come over and join in the fun at Power Poppy!!!!!!

Let Heaven and Nature Sing

I made this clean and simple card for the Peep of the Week challenge this month on the Power Poppy Blog.   This gorgeous new stamp set is part of the holiday sets from Marcella at Power Poppy stamps.   This is a a5x7 card and stamped each image in Memento black and colored them with copics.  I tore some paper and sponged some light blue around to make the clouds and stamped the image in the center. Very easy and quick and card. I outlined the image layer with a gold pen to finish the card.

Merry and Bright

This gorgeous new poinsettia is from Power Poppy stamps.  I started this 6x6 card with a background paper from Wild Rose Studios Holly Lane paper pack and edged with some distressed ink.  I cut the shape for the poinsettia with Creative Expressions Sue Wilson's California Collection and background die sets. I stamped the poinsettia with Memento black ink and colored it with copics.  All of the corner dies and flower and leaves are from Cheery Lynn designs.  I added the ribbon and the tag and some gems to finish this card.  Be sure to check out the new Christmas stamps at Power Poppy, I just ordered the gorgeous O Holy Night and Heaven and Nature Sing.  I can't wait to get them and continue my holiday cards.  Also check out the gorgeous resist tutorial on their blog
