First up is a set of cards created with the kit. I stamped the background stamp (with the leaves) in Olive ink on Honey cardstock, added the poinsettias stenciled with Cherry Pop and Mulled Wine inks, and then added stamped details with the clear stamps from the Merry Blooms Stamp, Stencil, & Clear Combo set. I did three cards and the backgrounds really came together quickly - this kit is perfect for mass producing!


To add extra dimension to the larger poinsettias on the background, I used the Perfect Poinsettia dies to add an extra layer popped up above the stenciled flowers. It was an extra touch that really stepped up the design. The 'Merry Christmas' sentiment is stamped with Chocolate Truffle ink into the opening on the background and I added the 'from our house to yours' stamped onto a Double-Ended Flag Stacklets die cut underneath.



I always love creating holiday tags and love how this set turned out that I created with the Merry Blooms Kit. I used the Perfect Poinsettia dies to create the poinsettias. The petals are cut out with Cherry Pop cardstock, I shaded the middle of the flowers with Mulled Wine ink, and the details are stamped with Mulled Wine and Sugar Cube inks. I used a glue pen to add Cherry Pop glitter to the edges of the top layer of the poinsettia to add a bit of sparkle.


The tag bases are put together with the Tag Stacklets 2 and Pierced Tag Stacklets 2 dies cut from Honey and Olive cardstock. I stamped the leaves, berries, and pine sprigs with Sugar Cube ink and then added the poinsettias. The sentiments are stamped on a Double-Ended Flag Stacklets die cut and I added a few Bits & Pieces - Gold Drip Drops for a finishing touch.
