Christmas cards with Poinsettia images using Spellbinders Dies


Good Morning!  I'm here today to share a bunch of cards I have made using Layers of Color Poinsettia Frame.  This cling art stamp is compatible with Spellbinders Labels SixteenI also used
Fluer de Lis Accents.  My sentiment is from the  Happy Wishes clear art stamp set.  I noticed that I had 2 cards using this set I had never shared.  I added 3 others from previous post at the bottom.  I also realized I have not been blogging as much as I had planned and I still have more Christmas projects to share.  So I"m going to try and use the next week to blitz you with Christmas and then start posting some Valentine projects.


You can view more of my projects that I have used Spellbinders Dies on HERE.
