SOA Winterhaven Release Day!!!

Hi everyone!  It's release day for the SOA Winterhaven Collection!  So exciting!

I have some more cards to share with you today using goodies from the release.

I created 4 of these cards while I had my supplies out.  I created 2 with the same sentiment and then another 2 with a different sentiment and of course, changed colors on each one.

I am so in love with this Poinsettia stamp from the 'Tis the Season stamp set.  It is so unique and fun!  

After stamping the poinsettia and leaves (masked the poinsettia before stamping the leaves), I trimmed my panel down and fussy cut around the Poinsettia and leaves.  I love the look this gives.  I added some silver glitter paper to add some more sparkle and stamped the sentiment using Black Jack ink.  Yes, I did a little stamp surgery on this Merry Christmas stamp.  It comes as a long sentiment and I wanted to use it this way so a simple snip and voila.  I can easily use it the way it was created by putting them back together where I cut them apart.

There are dies for this set as an ADD-ON.  I have already placed my order for them (I am not a fan of a lot of fussy cutting, though this Poinsettia is pretty easy to cut out).  You can also do this technique with the dies by doing partial die cutting, but I wanted to show you that you can easily do this by fussy cutting.

I had to do a blue Poinsettia.  I embossed the center of the flowers with silver embossing powder.  This sentiment is part of the 'Tis the Season stamp set.

Here are all 4 together to show the different colors I used.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Below I have linked to the stores the list of products that I used, I have used compensated affiliate links where they were available.  Buying through these links costs you nothing extra and helps support my blog and my artistic endeavors, and I thank you!
