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

Instructions: Locate light blue snowflake patterned paper within paper collection. Trim out pieces for small outside fold, along with pieces needed for the inside of the card (back of small fold, center panel as well as side panel). Trim slightly smaller than the original measurements if you desire the black frame around each part of the card. Now locate the 12" x 12" layout page that has the large sleigh image on the bottom. Cut out the sleigh in a square measuring 6" x 6". This will be the image that will appear on the card behind your stamped fence image. Using a sponge dauber, ink all edges of all the pieces you've cut using a teal colored ink. Adhere pieces where they belong on the card. Now locate the strip with the purple poinsettias and trim to fit along front of small flip fold, ink all edges with teal ink and adhere as shown. Cut out a backing for the back of the card using black card stock to cover up score line if you desire.

Using the preprinted tag from within the paper collection, fussy cut skates and poinsettia image to use in the upper corner on the small flip fold. Ink all edges with a teal colored ink and adhere as shown. Stamp gate cling stamp using grey ink and a heavier white card stock. Cut using coordinating die and ink edges using a teal ink. Adhere to card as shown. Stamp present cling stamps onto white card stock - one in purple, one in plum and one in teal. Add a touch of color using dove blending kit, and cut using coordinating dies. Stamp one image of the mittens in teal ink, die cut and apply teal coloring using sponge dauber. Using a dark green ink, stamp one inking of the vine along with the decorative wreath onto white card stock. Die cut, add a touch of light green color to leaves and some plum color to berries. Shape wreath, vine and presents slightly. Adhere to card as shown. Next, stamp both sizes of poinsettias onto white card stock three times using a dark purple ink, and the holly three times as well in a dark green ink. Sponge poinsettia petals with a plum ink and then sponge dark purple around the edges of all petals. Sponge insides of the holly leaves with light green ink and sponge edges with a dark green ink. Shape poinsettias and leaves, assemble a double bloom backed with holly leaves. Adhere to card as shown. Locate one of the 6" x 6" card panels in the paper collection that showcases the sleigh, trim to fit inside center of card and ink all edges with a teal color. Adhere to inside of card. Working carefully, shape the gate into just a slight bend so the center comes outward. Add a touch of glitter to blooms and preprinted elements on outside and inside of card.

Stamp, cut out and color the gate and attach to the card front. Stamp, cut out, color and shape the wreath and flowers. Add the Prills (colored with distress ink) to the center and attach the flowers along the gate. Place the wreath on the gate. Next I colored a piece of seam binding and used the heat gun to dry. Tie a bow and attach to the wreath. Stamp the sentiment and back it with an extra layer of cardstock. When the glue dries make it into a banner and shade the edges. Use dimensional tape to adhere to the card front. Now add glue onto the gate and bunch up the white flower soft to make it look like snow on the gate.

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

Instructions: Stamp and cut 1 set of Sparkling Poinsettias, these will be used as leaves only. Colour them using ink and daubers. Stamp and cut 2 sets of the presents. Stamp and cut 2 sets of the small poinsettias. Stamp the Ornate Sleigh onto the dark teal patterned paper using dark grey ink, cut out. Stamp again on the cut out sleigh, but a little bit off the original stamped image using embossing ink, and add silver embossing powder. Heat and set. Colour the poinsettias and leaves using ink and daubers. Colour the presents using coloured pencils.

Teal cardstock is your background. Cut the purple snowflake patterned paper to 11.5" x 11.5". Cut the white cardstock to 10.5" x 10.5". Cut the light purple patterned paper to 8.5" x 8.5". Adhere these layers together. Cut a piece of dark purple patterned paper to 8.5" x 2" and adhere to the bottom of the light purple patterned paper. Cut the dark purple border strip to 8.5" long and adhere to the top of the light purple patterned paper. I created a small banner at the bottom for part of my title from light pink patterned paper, and added a bit of the purple border strip there also. The size of this would depend on the letter stickers that you use. Find and cut out a couple of tags to peek out from the top of your matted photo. Attach to the layout. My 4" x 6" photo is matted in purple, white and teal cardstock. Attach the photo to the layout using 3D foam tape.

Attach the die cut sleigh using a thicker 3D foam tape. Then add the gifts using a combination of regular adhesive and a thinner 3D foam tape. Add gems to the bows of the gifts. I added the small poinsettias to the sleigh and the tag above the photo. Now you can add your title, buttons and pearls. I added a large button and some leaves to the side of the matted photo.

Instructions: Start by making a 5" x 7" card out of purple card stock. Next take a piece of paper from the Celebrate the Season Paper Collection that measures 6 3/4" x 9 1/2" and score in the middle at the 4 3/4" mark. To make the pop-out, with the paper fold in half from the back side measure in 2" from the Right side and draw a line 1 1/2" tall. Draw another line 1 1/2" tall 4" from the right side. Using a sharp craft knife or scissors cut on both of these lines and fold this piece so it pops out. The Ornate Sleigh Cling Stamp Set was stamped on white cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with Turquoise Embossing Powder and cut with the matching die before coloring with Peacock Feather Distressed Ink and accenting with Silver Beads. The Gift Wrapped Presents Cling Stamp Set was stamped on white cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with Turquoise Embossing Powder and cut with the matching die before coloring with a Dove Blender Pen and a combination of Teal Zeal and Cactus Flower inks and accenting with Sparkle Shimmer Spritz. The smaller Poinsettia flowers were stamped on White cardstock with Archival Ink Watering Can and cut with the coordinating die. They were colored with Evergreen Bough Distressed Ink before shaping the flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and finishing with Silver Stickles and attached as shown. The Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set was stamped on white cardstock with Elderberry and using a Versamarker Pen, Opaque Sparkle Vintage Pink was added and heat embossed before cutting with the matching die and shaping the flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Finally the sentiment was stamped on White cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with Purple Embossing Powder and then die cut with the Cut Mat Create 1B Die.

Watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84Re1-gaq1o for shaping tips and techniques on the hibiscus flowers and leaves.

Instructions: For box 5 1/2" by 5 1/2" square thick white cardstock. Score at 1 1/2" on all the four sides, which will make a height of the box. Following a simple box tutorial, slit on all four sides and tape the corners using red tacky tape. For the top and bottom layer cut 2 pieces from the smallest spellbinder grand label 1 die from white cardstock and mat them with pattern paper on both sides from the Celebrate the Season Collection. This will increase the strength of both bottom and top. Adhere the bottom piece to the base of the box using tacky tape. For attaching top lid you need a hinge of 1" by 3 1/2" scored at 1/2". Stick one side of the hinge to the back of the box and the other side of the hinge to the top lid. Now mat both the sides of the lid with pattern papers. Once the box is ready distress the edges using Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. To give a little frosty look on all the edges I have used Snowflakes paste and glitters. Also, cover all the sides of the inside of the box with pattern paper from the same collection. To decorate the sides of the box, I have used a long strip cut from HC Border Essential die. For the top decoration, cut one piece Sleigh from Ornate Sleigh and gift die from pattern paper and one piece from the white card stock. Also, cut gift boxes using the same die. Fix the base of Sleigh with glue forming an open pocket to hold all gift boxes. Decorate the Sleigh with glitters. Cut a bigger circle from pattern paper using Classic Circle die and decorate it with Arianna lace die. The flowers are made with vellum using Tropical Hibiscus Cling Stamp Set and cut with Tropical Hibiscus Die. The sentiment is from Gift Wrapped Presents Cling Stamp and stamped using black Archival Ink. Arrange all the elements as shown and add a ribbon bow for extra interest.

The blade was coated with a light coat of 3-D Lacquer and coated with white gala glitz.

Other products: White Card Stock, Teal Card Stock, Purple Card Stock, Chipboard, Copic Markers: V12, V15, RV66, G24, Silver Gelly Roll, Gold Glitter Glue, Versacolor Black ink, Clear Embossing Powder, ATG

Instructions: View a larger project image here. Each card begins with an A2 card base, 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" when folded. There are many panels in the paper collection that will fit wonderfully on this card base. By adding sentiment panels and a bit of color you can quickly create a beautiful holiday card.

Teal card: Find the panel with the snowflakes and garden gate. Trim down to 5 1/4" x 4" and mount to the teal A2 card base. Find the light blue snowflake paper, stamp Merry Christmas with Versacolor black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Color the holly with Copic G40 and RV66. Trim and mount onto a teal card stock panel. (Rather than using dimensional foam, I used chipboard behind my sentiment panels. It makes them sturdier and gives a more professional look.)

White Card: Trim a piece of the mauve snowflake paper down to 5 1/4" x 4" and mount to the white A2 card base. Find the panel with the circle and poinsettias. Trim just outside the mauve border as shown and mount onto white card stock. Using Memento Tuxedo black ink, stamp 2 large poinsettias and 1 small as well as the mittens, then die cut with the coordinating dies. Color the flowers with Copic V12 then crease down the center of each petal with the smallest nib in your Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Pinch the petals together, then stack the flowers as shown. Add gold glitter glue to the flower centers. Color the mittens with Copic V12 and V15, adding Silver Gelly Roll to the snowflake pattern. Adhere the mittens and poinsettia to the card with Art Institute Dries Clear Glue. Die cut the Happy Holidays Ticket with the Luggage and Tags Die, add chipboard to the back and mount to the card.

Purple Card: Trim a piece of the blue snowflake paper down to 5 1/4" x 4" and mount to the purple A2 card base. Find the panel with the oval and poinsettias and trim off the outer edge. Mount this to purple card stock then center on the card base. Cut out the Merry Christmas sentiment from the paper collection, mount on purple card stock, add chipboard and mount on the card.

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

Instructions: From the designer paper, cut an 11" x 4" piece and fold in half, this makes the card base.

Using the largest of the Spellbinder die in the set, cut one from the designer paper and one from the cream card stock. (The cream one will go on the inside of the card). Using the second die, cut another piece from the designer paper. Layer these two over each other and adhere to the front of the card base.

Now, stamp, color and die cut the poinsettias and leaves. I used distressed inks to color them in. Put the flower together. I die cut enough to make 3 of the bigger flowers and two of the smaller. Add the glass beads as centers, add stickles and set aside to dry. Now use the die to cut the mittens pre-printed images from the designer paper and die cut 2 of the tickets using the Luggage and Tags Die.

Onto the card arrange the flowers, 3 on onside and tuck the tickets in the poinsettia, right in the center of the card. On the upper right hand side, arrange the 2 smaller poinsettias and tuck the mittens. 

Add the Recollections bling, round the corners of the cards and you're done.
