Addicted to Stamps and More #219

That's right, crafters.  It's clean and simple week at Addicted to Stamps and More and I have a two-fer for you.


I have to give part of the credit for this to my friend Michele of I Card Everyone.  The day she came to visit she brought me this lovely shimmer cardstock all embossed with the greens.  (She also gave me the embossing folder - lucky me, 'mwah').  The 'joy' die is also hers and I cut it from some ancient paper and layered it on  coaster board.  The tag from SSS is stamped with a PTI sentiment and tied it on with some floss.

Now you know that the paper that I cut the die from was leftover and since I planned it just right I got a second card.
The negative was layered over some green paper and at Michele's suggestion I put one of the poinsettia that I fussy cut from the paper popped up in the middle of the O.  How EZPZ  and CAS is that?

Stamplorations is offering two digital images to the winner of this challenge.  Why not get a card entered into the gallery today?  Need more inspiration?  There's plenty to be had at ATSM.

  9. What a gorgeous duo, Bobby ... especially so as they feature one of my favourite words! It looks fabulous die cut against the pine embossing ... and deliciously rich and bold as green negative space with that little poinsettia! Hugs, Anita :)
