Instructions: Stamp and cut out 3 sets of Sparkling Poinsettias. Stamp and cut out 2 sets of the small poinsettias from Celebrate the Season. Cut out 1 Arianna Lace die from white cardstock. I added colour to my poinsettias using ink and daubers. I had light pink in the middle of each of my flowers. I used a combination of purples and teals to colour the rest of the petals. I used 2 colours of green to colour the leaves. Shape the flowers and cut apart the leaves and shape them as well. Assemble the flowers using 3D foam tape and hot glue. I added beads to the middle of the smallest flowers using liquid adhesive. I added Stickles to the edges of the larger poinsettias.

Start with the background patterned paper with poinsettias in the corner, I cut it down to 11.5" x 11.5". Then I cut around the poinsettias in the corner with an exacto knife, just where the purple pattern gets tucked under. Cut the purple patterned paper to 9.5" x 9.5" and round the corners. Adhere these layers together, tucking the one purple corner under the poinsettia pattern.

Cut the light teal pattern to 5.5" x 8.5", round the corners and adhere to the right hand side of the layout. Cut the light purple pattern to 3.5" x 8" and adhere it across the light teal pattern. Cut a strip of the dark teal pattern that is 2" wide, and cut out the purple border strip. I matted the border strip in white and mauve cardstock. Layer these strips together along with the white mesh ribbon and adhere to the layout. Find and cut out 1 large and 1 small tag, 1 ticket and the small teal bordered journal block. These get tucked around the matted photo. I matted my 4" x 6" photo in white, mauve, purple and white cardstock. Adhere the matted photo to the layout using 3D foam tape. Cut the lace die in half and tuck half at the top and half at the bottom of the matted photo. Add the baker's twine to the large tag.

Instructions: Create a 6" x 6" card base from White cardstock. From the Celebrate the Seasons Paper Collection, cut a 5 3/4" panel, sponge the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and adhere to the card front. Using a distressing tool, distress the edges of a 5" square white cardstock panel, sponge to distress further with Vintage Photo Ink and adhere to the card front. From the paper collection, cut a 4 3/4" square card panel, distress the edges and adhere to the card front with 1/8" foam adhesive tape. Add lace trim to the bottom edge of the panel - gather the trim so it ruffles and use strong adhesive to hold the gathers in place. Select a poinsettia image from the paper collection that is in a circle and die cut the circle out. Distress the edges and adhere to the left bottom corner of the card front using Double Dot Pop Dots.

Next, stamp the Poinsettia from the Celebrate the Season Cling Stamp Set 6 times with Blackberry Ink onto lavender pattern paper from the paper collection.

Purple And Teal Skates And Mittens

Purple And Teal Skates And Mittens

Other products: White 120 lb. card stock, 80 lb. violet card stock, double sided tape, Copics: V09, V06, V04, V01, C1, C3 and C5

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

Instructions: Create a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base and cut a violet card stock base layer at 4" x 5 1/4". Reserve the remainder of the card stock. Select the designer mat from Celebrate the Season Paper Collection. I used the one with the little poinsettia in the bottom right hand corner. The layers were applied with double sided tape.

To create some dimensional images that will be able to go through the mail, stamp the mittens, skates and poinsettia on X-Press It Blending Card. Color using V09, V06, V04, V01, C1, C3 and C5.

To add texture to the mittens, 70% alcohol was applied to some textured cloth. The cloth was placed on top of the colored mittens with my palm over it for 3 -4 seconds. When the image dried, the texture from the cloth popped up on your colored image. (Have fun trying this technique with a variety of clothes with various textures on your other projects.)

Die cut the colored images. Now, use the reserved dark violet card stock that was used on the base layer to die cut two skates and two mittens. Layer the skate die cuts with foam dots in-between each layer. This will allow the skates to pop up from the rest of the card.

The poinsettia was shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Express-O Yourself Prills were added to the center of the poinsettia.

For a little added pop, 3-D Crystal Lacquer was applied to the skate blades and topped off with White Gala Glitz. The Gala Glitz is chunky and really gives the appearance of snow and ice crystals on the blades.

Adhere the skates, mittens and poinsettia with foam dots and Designer dries Clear Adhesive and enjoy!

Stamp, cut out, color and shape the flowers and leaves. Add the Prills to the center of the flowers. I colored the white Prills with ink so I could perfectly match the color on the flowers. Attach the flowers to the front of the tag with hot glue. I cut a piece of the paper collection that had a sentiment on it and used dimensional tape to pop it off the front of the tag. I colored the seam binding to match my tag and tied a bow. Hot glue it to the sentiment piece and then I used Scor-Tape to adhere the tails of the bow where I wanted them.

Instructions: Make the Gate Fold card base by cutting teal cardstock 6" X 11". Score on the 6" vertical side at 2 3/4", flip card base to other end and score again at 2 3/4", fold flaps toward center. Cut two 2 5/8" X 5 7/8" mats from white cardstock. Cut two 2 1/2" X 5 3/4" of  purple from paper pad. Cut two 2 1/4" X 5 1/2" of light aqua from paper pad. Cut a 1" X 5 7/8" piece of white cardstock and die cut with ribbon thread border die. String seam binding through this piece. Make a five loop bow and set this aside for now. Glue mats together, white, purple and light aqua in that order. Glue the ribbon border to the right side of one of the mats. Glue these mats to the front flaps, with the ribbon border on the left flap. Glue the bow at the top of this flap as pictured. Stamp sleigh onto light aqua cardstock with turquoise ink. Color the outer edges and swirls using markers BG75, 18, 72, & 000. Stamp the sentiment with the same ink. Cut with matching die. Add accents with jellyroll pen. Glue this to the left flap lining up left side & bottom of sleigh. Be careful not to get any glue on the right flap. Add the crystal drops. You can add them directly to the sleigh, or dot them on waxed paper, let dry and then glue on. I prefer this method so I am sure not to smudge them. You can also use flat back pre-make pearls if you wish.

Die cut two of the lacey pieces from white cardstock and the Arianna Lace die. Press the front of these pieces into the glue pad, then sprinkle on diamond dust and shake off excess. Off set & glue these two pieces together. Glue this to left flap, overlapping the bow and sleigh a little as pictured. Stamp onto white cardstock with black ink, one set of skates, six large sets of poinsettia, eight sets of small poinsettia. Spritz all poinsettia petals, first with Grape & then Lilac Posies, set aside to dry. Lightly sponge turquoise ink on holly leaves and then spritz with Dazzling Diamonds. When these are dry follow video for shaping and add "Ice Queen" Prills to poinsettia centers and seed beads to holly centers. Die cut three small flourishes from Arianna die using dark green cardstock and brush on Mod-Podge and let dry. Color skates using C3, 1, & 00. Use C3 for blades and RV06 & 05 for laces. Add Stickles to blades. When all pieces are dry glue skates to "snowflake" and then glue three holly & one small poinsettia to center. Glue one large & one small poinsettia, & three holly to sleigh as pictured. Glue three flourishes to right flap, then arrange two large and two small poinsettia & six holly on top of them as pictured.

For the inside of the card, I cut a 6" X 6" card front panel from the paper pad with the gate at the bottom and trimmed it to fit as the inside of my card. I stamped the sentiment inside and colored the leaves with YG63, & 61, then decorated the berries with the crystal drops to finish the card.

Cream Card stock. Tim Holtz distress inck in Evergren Bough to shade.

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

Instructions: First I die cut 4 set of the Festive Gates, just on plain cream card stock. Adhere 2 of them together, now you have 2 thicker gates. These will make the card base, so you will have to cut a 1" x 2 3/4" from the cream cardstock and fold it in half. This makes the hinge for you to make the card base. Adhere the gates to this hinge, now you have a card base.

Stamp 2 more gates and color them using the Copic markers BG13, N2, and N4. Die cut these gates and also die cute one more gate without stamping it from the designer paper.

Adhere one of the colored and stamped gates to the front of the card, one to the inside of the card and the one cut from just the designer paper, adhere it to the back of the front side of the card.

Cut a piece of 5 3/4" x 2" and stamp a sentiment from the collection. I used "Merry Christmas". Used some Tim Holtz distress ink in Evergreen Bough to do a little shading around this piece. Color in the leaves, stickle them and add some bling. Set this aside and let the stickles dry.

Stamp, color and die cut the wreath, mini Poinsettias and leaves. Put your flowers together and adhere them over the wreath, tucking in leaves here and there to make the wreath look full. I added some pink bling to embellish.

From the designer paper, I fussy cut a ticket that read, "Celebrate the Season" and some of the cute bells from one of the other pre printed images.

On the inside of the card, adhere the dried Merry Christmas sentiment. For the cover of the card, I attached the Wreath and beneath it the ticket and bells. Stickle the flowers and the gate.
