Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Holiday Cheer Card

For my first project, I could hardly wait to pull out the Cover Plate: Winter Florals die.  I really wanted to add some color to it and I opted to use Copics.

Florals

After die-cutting the plate, I left all the interior pieces in place rather than popping them out, and this made it a bit easier to color everything.

Sentiment

The frame was added to a Soft Stone card base which was heat embossed with the sentiment from Christmas Cheer.

Down

I can imagine doing this in all sorts of color schemes, and you could definitely swap out the sentiment for a general winter card.  Gorgeous for birthdays!

Merriest of Holidays Card

Next up is a creation using the amaryllis image from the new Botanical Blocks III set.

Flowers

I stamped it in black and used Copics again.  The new open dies that coordinate with all of the Botanicals sets are such a great tool.  After I was done coloring, I just centered the die over the image and ran it through.

Sentiment

The sentiment I used on this card is from Cup of Cheer.

Down

Everything is adhered to a Pure Poppy card base to help make the flowers pop!

Praying for You Card

Of course I had to use the second image in the set, the anemone. I opted for Copics again, but this time on Kraft for a completely different look and feel.

Flower

I stamped the image onto the Kraft using Fresh Snow ink and let it dry for just a couple minutes before coloring.

Sentiment

The sentiment was heat embossed onto a strip of Tropical Teal cardstock and adhered across the front with foam tape for dimension.

Down

Easy design that only takes minutes to make!

Merry Christmas to You Card

For my last card I got to use the gorgeous new Spruce & Sprigs set!  It is so detailed you can easily create stunning projects in no time at all!  I stamped an entire background in Melon Berry, Simply Chartreuse and Ripe Avocado.  Then I went back in with Soft Stone to add "shadows" for the images.

Sentiment

I die-cut the center of the card front with the new Botanical Blocks Basics die so I could pop it up with foam tape.  The sentiment, from Treetops Glisten, was added in Charcoal Palette ink.  I added a few strips of the Silver Foil Adhesive Sheet around the edge for a bit of shine.
