I have created 4 cards to share with you, lets jump in and take a closer look...

My first card features the Festive Tree Stamp Set and Festive Tree Die Set. I stamped the tree using Bamboo and Just Green Crisp Dye Ink Pads. I embossed a piece of red card using the Diamond Stars 3D Embossing Folder.

I added the tree to the embossed background using foam tape and then stamped and die cut on of the sentiments from the set, I love that these sentiments have dies to go with them, it give the card a modern feel. I then added a sub sentiment stamped onto a white card strip and sprinkled a few sequins.

The next card showcases the Mistletoe Wreath Stamp Set. I stamped the wreath and used the Mistletoe Wreath Simple Coloring Stencil to add color with blending brushes. I used Minty Mint,Bamboo and Just Green Crisp Dye Ink pads. 

I cut the wreath using the Mistletoe Wreath Die Set and added it to a card that was prepared with the Candy Stripe Cover Die cut form red cardstock. I added a stamped sentiment using the Banner stamp and die included in the Mistletoe Wreath set.

Next up is the Poinsettia and Berries Stamp Set I started by stamping the two Poinsettias in the corners and adding leaves. I then masked them and stamped the black outline images. I used Rouge and Heartbeat Crisp Dye Ink pads for the Poinsettias and Mountain Pine for the leaves.

I embossed some red card using the Buffalo Plaid 3D Embossing Folder and added my stamped panel. I then cut my sentiment using the Merry Christmas Die Set, I cut from black and gold and adhered with a drop shadow.

My final card uses the Poinsettia and Berries Stamp Set and Poinsettia and Berries Die Set. I used
Rouge and Heartbeat Crisp Dye Ink pads for the Poinsettias and Mountain Pine for the leaves. I embossed some white cardstock with the Crossing Stars 3D Embossing Folder and then added the die cut flower and leaves. I finished the card with some gold twine and gems.
