Poinsettia stencil in the middle of the paper. Then I taped all four sides and colored the flower with stencil brushes and Distress Inks. I used Barn Door and Peeled Paint Distress Inks. Then I removed the tape. Cut the paper in the middle at 4", then cut in half the long way 1 3/4". Now you have four pieces with poinsettias on them. Use the ScorBuddy and ScorBug to add the pierced edges. Punch out a border to dress the card up a bit. It only takes about 15 minutes and you have four cards complete!

Bundled for Winter stamp from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps for my image on today's card. This is such an adorable stamp. I colored them in Copic Markers. Then I used the Decorative square from from Cheery Lynn Designs. The Fa La La La La stamp is also from PPRS and cut out with a label die from Cheery Lynn. Poinsettia and holly accents dies are also from Cheery Lynn Dies. Hop on over to the PPRS blog for more inspiration.

Amaryllis Flower stamp from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. This pairs nicely with the the Christmas Clear Stamp Set with the matching Flourished Oval die. I made a border piece with the flowers and colored with Copic Markers. Then I stamped the Amaryllis again and cut it out to pop up onto the card. I added some Candi and the lacy border die cut from Cheery Lynn. Be sure to see more beautiful creations on the PPRS blog!

Dreamweaver Stencils. Here are some "kisses" under the Mistletoe! Along with the monthly challenge we are using products from Beacon Adhesives. Today I am using the Large Clear Pillow Box from SRM stickers. I cut a piece of decorator paper to make a band around the box. I then adhered it to the plastic box with the Fabri-Tac glue. The stencil I used was the Mistletoe and I used the white matte paste to emboss it. Once the paste was dry, I used Distress Inks to color the paste. I also used the Picasso stencil shield to avoid getting ink on my berries. Then I added Diamond Stickles over the berries to add sparkle. Adhere the Mistletoe to the green card stock with Zip-Dry glue. You only need to apply a fine line of adhesive around the edges and it will stick fast and permanently.

Dandelion Pumpkin from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. I decided to color it in the non-traditional way with the creams and brown tones. The border piece that I used as a backdrop for the pumpkin was a cut out of the grass that would have been garbage, but I decided to mat it onto a dark green paper and use it as a border. So the grass I used for another card and I used the negative piece for this one. I used another border die from Cheery Lynn to make the border more fancy. Then I added some foliage, candi and a sentiment to complete the card. Check out more great ideas from the Prickley Pear blog.

I have a pair of cards for you today using my brother's images with The Stamp Shoppe. These are perfect for the fellas in your life that are into Big Boy Toys!
This first card features the Snowmobile image that is colored with Copic markers. I paired it up with some Washi Tape that I picked up at the Stamp Shoppe and papers from the Studio Calico Snippets Collection.
The sentiment is Enjoying The Ride.
If the weather in your parts is a bit warmer, then this Chopper image might be more your thing. Again, I used Washi Tapes and Candi Dots to embellish my card.
The Stamp Shoppe is a physical store in Schofield, WI, however you can purchase these images and Heidi's own stamp line online from the Stamp Shoppe Creations blog.
