Blast from Last Christmas'es Cards

Way back in the use the scanner for everything days... this one i did a few of this design ( don't remember how many) the poinsettia is from Penny black and heat embossed on textured bazzill with distress powder.
this one the hero Arts dahlia is stamped repeatedly with fired brick distress on cream cardstock then the centers are colored with prisma pink pencil then there is some random red stickles glittler glue in some centers, ( this is layered a few times) and was about 5 x7 ish i think?
This was just one of those things, had to have this stamp, couldn't make it look good with markers so i heat embossed it in gold on red, and made the flowers into cards with pp scraps. did two or three similar to this, the gold on the paper edges is all krylon paint pen. ( i was all over that pen last year haha)
oh dug this Noel out and did the same things with it more or less...
this one was slightly more 3-d there is another layer of flowers on it...
Loved the lace and the color combo of this one, stamps are Hero Arts.
now this cracks me up, i have all these dies you see, i have never used them in scrapbook pages, but i told my self i had to get my moneys worth out of them so i must have made 60 of this one... ( i still have 30 of these bases just like this with no stockings on them) the flowers in the stocking are from a QK die ( and part of that was vellum) and such a pain in the rear to get out of the die without ruining the paper... the gold balls are beads and if i remember right they rubbed off in the mail and everyone who got this card got gold ball confetti in the bottoms of the envelope. ( this is what it was supposed to look like)
live and learn eh?
these made me smile to find the photos at least i had them on a disk, our computers hard drive died last Christmas and so, alot of the the old stuff is gone, some that was uploaded to the albums at peas is gone, oh well. anyways i think I'm gonna put up the tree today. :)

Each one of these cards is absolutely gorgeous! I can't pick a favorite. I really love the gold on red. Guess what I'll be doing tomorrow when I make more cards? Yep! Gold on red...just like Stacy! :)

Great cards. The red and white one is my favorite. I like how you layered the ribbons.

I like looking on how you make your stamp(s)look "different".

I got the top card in the mail from you last year.....

The photos just do not do your cards justice.
