The card I have for today is a clean and simple snowman Christmas card using the fun Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes stamp set. I'm also entering this card in the Merry Monday Challenge #181.

The card I have for today uses the new PTI Winter Woods stamp set and dies. I kept my card fairly clean and simple with a white card base and a white background panel which I heat embossed with iridescent embossing powder and the dotted stamp image that comes with this set. Next I stamped my sentiment along the bottom right corner, added a strip and small banner of ocean tides cardstock and added my die cut and stamped tree branch. Once that was all in place I added my red cardinal with foam adhesive and some glitter on some of the branches.

Hi there! Happy Thursday! The weekend is almost here and the weather forecast is calling for snow. Today I've got another Christmas card using the Papertey Ink Painted Poinsettias stamp set. I've enjoyed using this set to create a variety of cards with different colors and layouts. So far I've created cards with stamped red, fuchsia and pink poinsettias so today I thought, why not white. This card has more of a modern feel to it with the white poinsettias and clean color blocks. I used a white card base and stamped my sentiment along the bottom in black ink, then added a horizontal strip of simply chartreuse and a thinner strip of limeade ice. Overlapping the green strips of cardstock, I added a rectangle of tropical teal which I sponged with tropical teal ink in the center to make the white poinsettias pop a little more. Then I added my die cut and stamped poinsettia flowers layering one set with foam adhesive and my leaves. I used limeade ice ink stamped off for the shadows on the flowers and simply chartreuse for the veins and centers which I added lime green glitter to.

Happy Saturday! I hope all of you had a good week. Today I'm sharing another card using the Papertrey Ink Painted Poinsettias stamp set. I've created several card sets using this stamp set and will be selling them in my Etsy shop along with other handmade items you can see HERE. Keep checking back for updates.
For my card I not only used the Painted Poinsettias stamp set and dies but the Plaid Builder and Season's Greetings sets as well. I started out with a white card base, then added a panel of tropical teal cardstock which I stamped off using the Plaid Builder set and tropical teal ink. Then I added a vertical banner of new leaf cardstock which I stamped my sentiment on. Once that was done, I added my die cut and stamped poinsettias, layering two with foam tape and my leaves. I used the ink colors both PTI and SU, raspberry fizz, melon mambo, scarlet jewel and summer sun for the flowers and new leaf, tropical teal and handsome hunter for the leaves.
