And here are a couple more alternatives for October 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit "Friends of a Feather".  I have made 10 alternative cards so far and still have extras pieces left - these kits are such a bargain.
















My sister was up for Thanksgiving so we worked on the November 2018 Paper Pumpkin - To You & Yours.  Wow! I love the card stock and pine boughs in this kit. I have made 6 alternatives so far.  These are my 3 favorites. The rest are on my website - click on the link below.

A few days ago I posted several cards I made using the Peaceful Poinsettia Bundle.  The post included a card that I had embossed on my Big Shot using both the corner die and the flower die onto a piece of card stock and then outlining the flower, branches and leaves & then coloring them in.  I really liked this process and wanted to share these additional two A2 size cards using the same process.  On the first one I added a few white die cuts.  On the second I added some foil paper dots.

These holiday cards feature the Peaceful Poinsettia Bundle from Stampin' Up!.  


In this first card, I started by using the corner die to emboss the branches & holly on a piece of Garden Green CS.  Then I die cut the flower and mounted the card on Cherry Cobbler CS.  The sentiment is from Snowflake Sentiment stamp set and was heat embossed with White embossing powder.


For this 2nd card  I used the same corner die to emboss the branches & holly on a piece of Whisper White CS and then repositioned the die a 2nd and 3rd time to die cut some additional branches to fill some of the space.  The 2 step flower was die from WW & red foil paper.  The sentiment is from the Peaceful Poinsettia bundle and was heat embossed with  Lovely Lipstick embossing powder.


For this 3rd card I die cut the flower and the branch & holly all at once on a piece of WW CS, heat embossed the same sentiment, and then sponged some pink ink on the card front and mounted onto a piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock.




For this 4th card I embossed the 2 dies at once on a piece of Smoky Slate CS.  Then I used Smoky Slate and Sweet Sugarplum Stampin' Write markers to outline the flowers and fill in the branches.  I also sponged the front of the card with Sweet Sugarplum ink, stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink, and mounted on a piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS.
