Morning to you all, a new theme is starting today at Allsorts and Lynn has selected the theme of 'It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas'. This week we have two prizes of Car-di-o stamp sets.
This year I took a deviation from all stamped Christmas cards after being tempted by this embossing folder, die and stencil collection from Lisa Horton, they are such clever sets with the layering stencils to build up the colours.
The finished Poinsettia designs were simply layered onto card embossed with a very old Tattered Lace 8x8 folder, the sentiment from my own Magic stamp set available here or Create and Craft, stamped in red Versafine Clair before embossing the background and a little Two Red Robins die.
Hope everyones Christmas preparations are coming along, a bit scary that suddenly we are in December and it's all rather close.

This is so beautiful, I love your CAS.
Gorgeous poinsettias and terrific collection of cards. There is a fallidays challenge on splitcoaststampers.com that this totally fits. They are giving away prizes in those challenges too.
Beautiful cards Brenda.
Beautiful cards Brenda...I too have fallen in love with Lisa Horton's folders.(when funds allow) Your poinsettias are lovely and I have that background embossing folder too...always a favourite. I think your sentiment is different too instead of the usual greetings. I reckon we could all do with a BIG waft of magic this year.Take care xx
Beautiful cards Brenda, lovely clean and fresh design, those gorgeous poinsettias really pop against the white embossed background.
The stenciled poinsettias look amazing and I am loving the CAS design with the subtle embossing on the background!
Busy times for sure, I think I need a December specific "To-Do" list!!
Fabulous card and absolutely beautiful embossed poinsettias and such a lovely sentiment
A beautiful design, it looks wonderful on the embossing and I love the addition of the little robin.
Beautiful cards Brenda. I love the shading on the flowers and gorgeous reds against the white background.
Ciao Brenda, hai fatto davvero un buon acquisto con questo set, le poinsettia con l'agrifoglio sono davvero ben costruiti. Mi attirano sempre gli stencils a strati ma non ne ho mai comprato uno. Chissà, magari Babbo Natale mi farà una sorpresa :D LOL.
Hai scelto dei colori davvero vibranti e luminosi, perfetti per celebrare il Natale, e il piccolo adorabile pettirosso sembra molto attirato da loro. Il tuo bellissimo sentiment è il dettaglio perfetto per completare le cards!
Qui oggi la temperatura è crollata giù, fa molto freddo e c'è aria di neve. Nel giro di due soli giorni l'inverno sembra già arrivato!
Gorgeous poinsettia cards!
To me poinsettias definitely represent the good traditional Christmas. Sounds like a great set to have on hand to make multiples. Beautiful.
Such beautiful cards Brenda, I love the embossed background and the pretty poinsettias.

Wow these look great! It is always good to use some older things from you stash...they are still beautiful... Hoop your weekend is fry and fun! Hugs, Gerrina

Indeed it is all rather close now, I am on the verge of going into panic mode! I do love those Lisa Horton sets, but haven't actually bought any yet, which is probably a good thing. Your poinsettias look stunning xx
Lovely bold design using this gorgeous poinsettia.
Yes Christmas is getting close and although I've been making Christmas cards for what seems like forever I am still not ready :)
