MERRY...

Today I played with some new Hero Arts stamps and dies - and got nothing else done either!!
After stamping the holly leaves, I colored them with copics.  The sentiment is 3 layers of cardstock.

 This card was also colored with copics.  I added some glitter glue to the berries.  I also colored the "merry" with the same copics as the ribbon.

After stamping the poinsettia, I masked it and stamped the leaves.  The "merry" is inlaid and there is glitter glue in the center of the flower.


I am entering these in a2z Scrapbooking Autumn/Christmas challenge and also Merry Monday #126 where the challenge is to make the sentiment the focal point.  Will enter the poinsettia in Festive Friday's challenge where the inspiration photo uses a lot of pink.

Supplies:
Card 1:
Stamp: HA CL795 "Holly Jolly"
Die: HA DC116 "Fancy Cuts Christmas"

Card 2:
Stamp: HA CL797 "Under the Mistletoe"
Die: HA DC116

Card 3:
Stamp: HA CL796 "Peace Poinsettia"
Die: HA DC116

Thanks for stopping by today and your kind comments.   Betty
