Joyful Christmas Poinsettias

I cleaned up my stamping area yesterday and I had a little pile of things that were started, but not any completed projects so I started with my pile and here is what I came up with.  I'm still in summer mode myself so don't get worried, but wouldn't it be nice to have your cards done so that when Christmas does get here all you have to do is address and send?  I thought so.  Well here is a couple of idea for you using the set Joyful Christmas.  This set was in last years Holiday Catalog and is on a carryover list that is still available until August 28, so don't miss out on this great set.  I just love poinsettias.  I used the Blendies on these and I know I probably didn't do them justice, but I think I didn't do too bad. 

Looking at this picture I see that my lighting doesn't seem to be very good.  The base layer and the leaves are Soft Sky, which is a light color, but this picture it looks more faded out.  Sorry about that.  For some reason I struggled with getting the Night of Navy to blend well on this, but like I said it's not a very good picture.  The embossed background on here is a new embossing folder that will be out in the new Holiday Catalog.

I used the Cherry Cobbler Blendies on this one and some of the new Satin Silver Ribbon.  I just love blues and silvers for the holidays.

I wanted to show you as well today something I also did yesterday when I was cleaning.  I organized my collection of Framelits.  My good friend Vicki had given me the case you can see in the back of this box and some of the magnet sheets for storing the Framelits.  I really like this idea and the box will be great for taking them on the go, but for working here at home I was having to dig through the pile so I ended up buying this little plastic box at Target and it works great for storing the magnet sheets upright and I can put the storage box in behind so it is ready for taking my Framelits with me as well.  I then used my label maker and made labels for each set.  Now I can quickly flip through them and find the Framelit set that I need.  Cool huh?

Thanks for stopping by!

I love the blues and I think your card is beautiful. I'm sure it is so much prettier in person. I found you and your cards through Pinterest.
