Did you enjoy seeing all the fabulous projects from the Baker's Dozen yesterday?  We have another fun day for you and I'm giving you a little peek at Peaceful Poinsettias, an elegant Holiday set which combines both solid and open images along with a variety of sentiments to mix and match to personalize your projects.  This set is part of the Whimsical Wishes line, illustrated by Nancy McKinney and also has a coordinating die set - Poinsettia.

I stamped the open poinsettia image 3 times on Choice Buttercream cardstock and colored them with Copics.  I used the Poinsettia die set to cut out the layers of the poinsettia and used foam tape to separate the layers.  The papers and ribbon are part of the Holiday Wonder Project Pantry Kit.

The Holiday Wonder Project Pantry Basic Recipe Kit is $11.95 and includes:
Authentique Wonder 6x6 pad
10 sheets of 8.5" x 11" cardstock in coordinating colors
6 yards of ribbon (2 yards each of 3 different styles)

Optional Spice it Up Ingredients (choose any or all) are:
  • Decorative Brad Mix
  • Red/Green Paper Roses
  • Christmas Glitter Assortment
  • Red Pearls
  • Coordinating Copic Markers
  • Additional Cardstock Pack
  • Additional Ribbon Bundle
I added a few Red Rhinestones in the corner and the layout is MOJO208.

The rest of the Baker's Dozen have more for you today, so stop on by to see:
