One stamp many cards...

Hello friends! I am back with another post, a long one ;) loaded with Christmas cards... Yeah! My card making is still on. I did not anticipate, I will run short of Christmas cards :D

In this post I have used one stamp and have created 4 Christmas cards with it. I have used STAMPlorations Holiday Sketches - Christmas flower. There is one extra card, that I made earlier and was unable to share. So here I go...
To make this I used Pretty Pink Posh borders 1 die and cut out 3 strips, Stamped the poinsettia twine and fuzzy cut and colored them in shade of green n red. Next I laid it all on card base after adding some gold ink splatter. Finished with sequins n sentiment. I am sharing this at Showcase your Style #4 - Sketch, Color Q #272, Christmas Card Challenge #2 - CAS and to my team leader Kylie's Christmas Card Challenge. Kylie is offering a fabulous prize of customized watermark & signature worth $40. You can check out the fab watermark she designed for me... absolutely the way I wanted. Here's how it looks...
So you have a chance to get ur own awesome watermark, link ur Christmas card HERE.
  

My next card is another fun, though it looks like it has multiple layers, it is just one layers with all inlaid together.
To make this card, I cut the lower end of the upper panel of the card, heat embossed the poinsettia in white and did some distress resist inking in shades of pink. Next I adhered a backing to finish the lower layers and inlaid them together after cutting them with PPP border dies. To finish the card, I added the sentiment and sequins. Linking this to Color Throwdown #323, CAS(E) this Sketch #104 and Stamping Royalty #259 - OLC
 
My third card is another fun design...
Here I crushed a kraft card stock panel to texturize it, layered it on another patterned paper. Gold heat embossed the poinsettia and adhered it all on card base to finish I added a twine and sentiment.I am sharing this with Sketch Saturday #340, Just Add ink #245, Cupcake Inspiration #291, A Gem of a Challenge #134 - Anything Christmas 
  

My last design uses stencil and some stamping.
I stenciled the BG in blue to give a faded effect, Next I created a panel by repeated stamping the sentiment. Stamped, fuzzy cut and colored the poinsettia in red and adhered it on card base, To finish I added some twine. I am sharing this with City Crafter Challenge #242 - Christmas Color, Freshly made Sketches #167 and Curtain Call Inspiration challenge - Candy Cane
  

Now my final card... 
This used the STAMPlorations Joyful set, I used some patterned papers for Paper piecing and designing this card. I am sharing this with Color Me #51 - Be Merry!, Jingle Bells Challenge - Anything Goes!, 613 Avenue Create #102 - Anything Goes and Simon Says Stamp - Winter Inspiration
