Ink all edges with a teal ink. Adhere full card panel to card base and overlap with sleigh image panel as shown. Using the Spellbinders Circle dies, die cut a mid sized circle into the card base. Locate the preprinted card panel with the mittens image, trim and die cut with a slightly smaller circle die being sure to keep mittens as your focal point. Ink edges using a teal ink. Trim out the preprinted background from within the paper collection showcasing the skates and mittens, ink the edges using a teal ink and adhere to inside of card. Using pop dots, adhere circular mitten image to card centered in opening on card base.

Using a sheet of vellum, stamp several inkings of the poinsettias from the Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set and heat emboss using a teal colored embossing powder. Layer purple hues lightly onto vellum flowers, die cut and gently shape using flower shaping tools. Create two larger double blossom flowers and one small double blossom flower. Add clear seed beads to centers. Using white card stock and your die cutting machine, cut two snowflake like cuts from the Arianna Blooms Die collection along with two swirls, as well as one arrow from the Cut Mat Create 1B collection.

Watch this video https://youtu.be/1INCr0klRIQ to learn how to shape the Sparkling Poinsettia.

Instructions: My card base is 6" x 6" white cardstock. Stamp using Storm (grey) ink and cut out the Festive Gate. Using the Tombow blender pen, I picked up a little bit of brown and grey ink and filled in the sides of the gate to add a little dimension. Adhere the gate to the front of the white 6" x 6" card base.

Cut out 3 large and 1 small Sparkling Poinsettia. Colour one of the large flowers using the green inks and daubers. Colour the other 3 flowers using light pink in the middles, and teal and purple on the outer edges of the petals. Shape and assemble your flowers using hot glue and 3D foam tape. Add Stickles to the flowers. Set aside.

Cut a piece of the light pink patterned paper that is 6" x 6" and adhere to the front of the card. Cut a piece of the purple polka dot patterned paper that is 5.5" x 5.5" and adhere to the card front. Cut a piece of the light pink patterned paper that is 4.75" x 4.75", adhere to the card front. Cut 2, 1" squares from the dark teal patterned paper, cut them in half diagonally to create photo corners and adhere to the corner of the light pink patterned paper. Cut a piece of dark teal patterned paper that is 2" x 6" and mat it in white cardstock (2.25" x 6"). Add the poinsettia border strips to each edge of the matted border and adhere to your card.

Cut a strip of the light teal patterned paper that is 0.75" x 6", and flag one end. Adhere down the middle of the front of the card. Cut a 1.5" dark purple patterned circle and adhere to the top of that strip. Add your chosen sentiment ticket. I chose “Happy Holidays”. Cut out the circular portion of one of the journal blocks and adhere to the middle of the card using 3D foam tape. Cut a white cardstock circle that is 2.75" and adhere to the middle of the card using 3D foam tape. Add your poinsettia using hot glue.

Watch this video https://youtu.be/1INCr0klRIQ to learn how to shape the Sparkling Poinsettia.

Instructions: Cut out one window from white cardstock. Stamp and cut out 3 small Sparkling Poinsettia. I used inks and daubers to colour my poinsettia and leaves. Colour 1 of the flowers using 2 tones of green and cutting them apart to make leaves. Colour the other 2 flowers using light pink in the middle, teal and purple on the outer tips of the petals. Shape and assemble your flowers and leaves. I added stickles to my poinsettia.

My card base is 6" x 6" in a plum cardstock. Cut the light purple patterned paper to 5.75" x 5.75" and adhere to the card base. Adhere the white die cut window to the left hand side of the card. Find the ornament journal block, and cut them both out. I cut each layer apart and added dimension to them using a thin 3D foam tape. I also matted the largest layer in the plum cardstock. Before adding that final ornament layer, cut a strip of purple patterned paper that is 1" x 6", and strip of light teal patterned paper that is 1.25" x 6". Adhere these together and then onto the card, just under that final ornament layer.

From the other copy of the ornament journal block, I fussy cut out all of the ornaments. Shape them and adhere them onto the top layer using 3D foam tape. I added Wink of Stella to the ornaments. Adhere your poinsettia to the card using hot glue.

Find your sentiment ticket, I chose “Celebrate the Season”. Die Cut with matching Luggage and Tags Die. Adhere using 3D foam tape to the bottom right hand corner of the card.

From the full sheet of patterned paper, cut out the 2 pieces on either side of the border. Adhere to the cards using 3D foam tape. I added a pearl to each.

Watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8Mj-EfcDvs for shaping tips and techniques on the poinsettia flower and holly leaves.

Instructions: Begin by selecting two papers from the collection, I used the snowflake background one and cut a 1" frame around the second one. This frame will lay directly on top of the snowflake background. Cover base with clear gesso to prep the surface and set aside to dry, or dry with heat tool. When dry use template and texture paste to add texture to background, be sure to not place any where you think your photo layers will go. Heat set. Add a bit of gelato for colour, lightly mist with water to spread the colour and dry off with paper towel if too much colour is on. Dab with glue gloss pen and sprinkle with fairy dust, shake off excess.

From coordination papers in collection cut three banner strips approximate 5.5" in length and varying widths to complement your photo. Cut strips of may arts gold ribbon and layer in between the banners you just created. Cut apart a Moroccan panel from creative embellishments and ink with gold pigment ink, adhere to either side of your photo. Cut your photo using wonky rectangles and cut a frame to go on top.

From pre coloured paper in collection, cut out skates, sleigh, gate, mittens, two wreaths and two tags from tag sheet. Detail gifts, skates and mittens with glue gloss and fairy dust. Cut gate in half and fan in corner as shown. Add tags tucked in behind sleigh and add gifts, cut one wreath apart and tuck in photo corners; then add skates to photo corner as shown.

Stamp and cut 8 sets of small poinsettia on white card with dark brown chalk ink and colour with elderberry and pistachio dye ink. Mold with mat and stylus and add Minnie pearls to center. Add bling under sleigh layers and cut apart to have some coming out of corners in layout. Detail edges of layout with glue gloss and sprinkle fairy dust. Detail poinsettias with gold pigment ink and complete layout. Be sure to cut out a small tag from tag sheet using the matching Luggage and Tags Die for sub title.

Instructions: Create a 5 3/4" x 4 1/2" card base from White cardstock. Trim and adhere a same-sized panel from the Celebrate the Seasons Paper Collection to the card front.

Next, stamp the Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set cluster on white cardstock 2 times with Perfect Plum Ink. Die cut the poinsettias with the coordinating Sparkling Poinsettia Die. Water color the poinsettias in Opal Opulence and crease each of the petals while they’re still wet from the water color. Allow to dry then assemble them to create three dimensional poinsettias. Add turquoise blue beads to the centers and adhere each flower to the card front as shown in the sample. Cut a sentiment from the paper collection and adhere to the card front. Embellish with glitter branches, die cut foliage, and rhinestone gems. Stamp the birdies from the Birds and Blooms Cling stamp set one time with Black Ink onto white cardstock and die cut with the coordinating die.

Glue the birds to the card front.

Insert the finished card into a clear card box. Die cut a frame from coordinating patterned paper using the outer Scalloped Edge and the Solid Center ring of the Eyelet Oval Die. Center and adhere the opening of the die cut frame on top of the card box so it frames the prepared card inside. Wrap the box with light blue ribbon and a fluffy bow and adhere to the box towards the lower end of the oval.

Glue the layers together and add prills to the center of the flowers and set aside to dry. Wet the seam binding, add color and scrunch and leave to dry. Stamp, cut out and color the skates and add a bit of glitter to them just to add some interest. Of course I think a little glitter helps everything. Stamp the sentiment in the lower corner and then I started to decide where I wanted to adhere the elements. I used dimensional tape to glue down the skates and then glued down the flowers and the bow.

Instructions: For the Gift Bag, trim the gift bag at the top to measure 9" in length. My gift bag is 8" wide. Cut violet card stock to measure 8 3/4" x 7 3/4". Select the designer paper with the poinsettias at the right hand corner from "Celebrate the Season" paper collection. Trim the designer paper to measure 8 1/2" x 7 1/2". Adhere the layers to the gift bag.

A border from Essential Border die was cut from violet card stock and applied to the top of the gift bag. A decorative border was applied to the top of the bag using Regal Borders and Pocket die. Rhinestones were applied in-between the two border die cuts.

Stamp Assorted presents from the Gift Wrapped Presents Cling Stamp Set. Stamp two sets of skates and one set of mittens from Celebrate the Season Cling Stamp Set. You can use the Ornate Sleigh cling stamp set, however, I used the sleigh that was in the paper collection.

Color the images with markers or sponge the images with the ink of your choice. I colored my images with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers - BG10, BG53, BG57, BG09, C5, C3, V01, V04, V06, V09, RV11, RV32, RV34, Y11, YR20, YR24. I wanted to add texture to the mittens so I lightly wet a textured cloth with 70% alcohol and placed it flat over the colored mittens for 3-4 seconds. It is best to place your palm over it rather than your fingers. When the image dries, the textured pattern pops from the coloring and it looks texturized.

The images were die cut. The Ornate Sleigh die fit the image from the paper collection perfectly. Using violet and teal card stock, die cut two layers each for the two sets of skates and mittens. Repeat the process for the gifts. Apply foam dots in-between the two layers of card stock and the colored layer for each image. This will give them a lot of fun dimension. Adhere the sleigh, skates, mittens and gifts to the gift bag.

The sentiment, "A gift of love" was cut from the paper collection and layered on violet card stock.

Apply 3-D Crystal Lacquer to the blades of the skates and sled and topped with White Gala Glitz. Star Dust Stickles were applied to the center of the poinsettias.

Watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8Mj-EfcDvs for shaping tips and techniques on the poinsettia flower and holly leaves.

Instructions: View a larger project image here. Cut four 4 1/2" X 6" pieces of thin cardboard. I used a 24 pk. soda box. Using the punch board make each into the crest shape. If you do not have a punch board, measure across the bottom 2 1/4" and make a small a pencil mark. From the bottom up, measure to 4 3/4" on each side, draw a line between the two marks. At the center mark on the bottom cut on a slant, up to the outside edge of the 4 3/4" mark to form the crest shape. Using one neutral violet and one aqua sheet of the paper pad cut two of each color 4 1/2" X 6" and glue these to the cardboard. Flip over to the back side and trim off excess on bottom of crest. I repeated this process with lilac & aqua cardstock for the back side of each crest. You may omit this if you wish. Glue braided trim across the top of each crest. Cut pearl string to fit and glue to outside edges as pictured. I used my Crop-A-Dile to make 3/16" holes in the crest top, and set grommets. You can use a punch or anything you personally use for holes. Measure 46" of each color twine & cord. Thread through the holes and tie a knot behind each before adding the next crest. I spaced the crests 2 1/2" apart.

Cut the "Noel" letters with the Cricut machine & Storybook cartridge set at 3" from white glitter paper. Cut accent/frame and shadow setting from cardstock to match each crest.

Watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8Mj-EfcDvs for shaping tips and techniques on the poinsettia flower and holly leaves.

Instructions: Cut one 3 1/2" x 8", a 2" x 8", a 3" x 1/2" and a 1" x 8" from heavy duty chipboard/card stock. Paint one side of each piece with a coordinating color. I used dark purple acrylic paint. Cover the 2" x 8" and the 1" x 8" piece with designer paper from the collection and glue each end to form a tube/cylinder. Cover the top of the 1" x 8" cylinder with gold washi and glue this tube inside the top of the 2" x 8" cylinder to make it look like there is a cylinder within a cylinder. Add Stickles to the surrounding area where the two pieces meet. Set these aside to dry. Cover the other two pieces and also glue them together to make 2 different tubes. One will be taller than the other. Cover each of these pieces using your favorite papers from the designer paper collection. You will end up with 3 tubes in different sizes. Cover the tops with Washi of your choice, I used gold washi since it's a Christmas project.

Now adhere the two bigger tubes together. When gluing the front piece to the taller tube, elongate the tube and hold it till it adheres completely to the other cylinder. It will look like the taller tube is circular, but the smaller tube is oval, you will be able to fit 3 stickle bottles in this area. Now, the smallest tube is just big enough to hold a pencil, or other crafty tool. Adhere it on the right side of the caddy. Using Washi tape, adhere the newly created caddy to the circular wood piece to give your caddy a base.

Next, stamp, color and die cut the flowers and leaves. I colored my flowers in with Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen in Boudoir and the leaves in Holly Leaf, it makes the flowers pretty glittery. I did a set of 3 flowers, for each flower I used two of the bigger petals and one of the smaller petals. For centers, I used the Want2Scrap self-adhesive bling.

Now using the dies, cut out the pre-printed Gift box images from the designer paper. Finally, adhere the 3 poinsettias and leafs to the front of your caddy, and add the gift boxes on either side to cover where the two tubes were hot glued together. (The taller gift boxes are the perfect size for this.)

Stamp, color and die cut the leafy garland, I colored it with the Holy Leaf pen and ran it through the Xyron sticker maker. Adhere this garland around the top part of the caddy. Add some bling across the garland, and also around the flowers and leafs.

Instructions: The finished size of this tent fold card is 21 cm x 14.8 cm. Please note all the stamping is done with the gold embossing powder. Cut and fold the cardstock to make a tent fold card to the above measurements. Cut from the paper collection 2 matting layers. First 20.5 cm x 14.3 cm, second 19.7 cm x 13.4 cm. Stitch the edges with the gold thread. Distress the edges of these papers with the paper-distressing tool. Adhere to the card base with foam dots or tape.

Stamp, color, die cut and shape the embellishments for this card. The seahorse is cut a few times extra to make chipboards. The sleigh is attached from the base, the flowers are tucked and glued, into the sleigh then the leaves are added from behind. Make the sentiment and adhere with the coral swirl peeking from behind. The mini gold string of pearls are adhered to the seahorse's neck and sleigh front swirl. Cut the shell corner border in half, then adhere in a line. Add a flower to hide the join. Apply crystal lacquer or clear glue in thin lines along the border then sprinkle the Turquoise flakes. Add the pink pearls to the flower centers. To finish, apply stickles to the flower stamens, swirls on the sleigh and to the seahorses.

Your design team have done another wonderful job with this collection, I am waiting for mine to arrive. It is very hot here in the UK, something we are not used to, so we don't have air conditioning, I have two large fans keeping me cool. I am going to spend the day clearing my desk ready for my goodies. Thank you to ALL at Hearttfelt, you really are valued friend. May G-D Bless you ALL and keep you safe. Pat (((((((((HUGS)))))))))))

Hi Paulette, If you scroll down on designer Tracey Fehr's blog, she has examples of cards using white card stock. Also, our Farmer's Market and Sugar Hollow card kits utilized our stamps to create the back ground images on white card stock. Happy Crafting!

I haven't been very appreciative of the non-traditional colors of this collection..until I saw Maureen's NOEL Christmas Banner. WOW! What a beautiful project! Every element, so perfectly placed, really brings out the beauty of the paper. And, by the way, I so appreciate that you are including a fussy cutting image page in your collections! Thank you! It really is Christmas in July!

Love the colors and thank you for having some simpler designs because some of us don't like to do elaborate designs nor do we have the time. Keep up the good work
