This card uses the Step Card Die by Cheery Lynn as well as Felicity Doily w/ Angel Wings, Sophia's Heart, and Ankara Lace Border Dies.
The plain round dies are from Spellbinders.
This stamp is by Hero Arts. I popped up parts of the bells, double popped the front one. The "dingers" are also cut out and popped.
I used Christmas Red Stickles, red rhinestones, a Cuttlebug embossing folder and colored with Copic Markers. The base of the card is a silver gray. I used gold and silver metallic card stock for the die cut shapes.
P.S. I absolutely LOVE this Step Card die!!

Today I have a Christmas card done for the Cheery Lynn Challenge. I used a Magnolia stamp and made it snow on her with glitter glue and liquid pearl. The dies I used were: Holly Corners, French Lattice, and Felicity Doily from Cheery Lynn and the circle die from Spellbinders. I used a snowflake embossing folder by Sizzix on the background panel as well. The striped paper and ivory paper (lattice) is from BoBunny and the red plaid paper used for cutting out the doily is from Best Creations. All is glued to a white card (4 3/4 X 6").
I used red rhinestones for the berries on the holly corner.
Winner of the Christmas in July challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs

Our family likes to take road trip vacations because there is so much to see here in the states. In fact, most every state is quite different and there is something amazing in each.
First I went on-line to get this Thermal map of California and printed it to card stock. I stamped Penny Black's Poppies on white card stock and colored them with Copics then cut them out. The California is printed on my computer then colored on the outline with orange and die cut with Spellbinders.
The two large poppies are actually popped up but you can't really see it in this picture.
I hope everyone has a great 4th of July and stay safe!
