Happy Holidays With A Touch Of Bling

My dear friend gave me this stamp and I couldn't wait to use it.  It is Poinsettias & Berries from Great Impressions Stamps 


For the background I used an embossing folder by Jennifer Ellory that I got from Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine .  It is gorgeous and the perfect way to showcase the poinsettias stamp.  Now for the image....I stamped it three times and colored it with Spectrom Noir markers.  Then I cut out one leaving it whole.  The next one I cut out leaving off the leaves and a few petals.  And the third one I only cut out the few center petals of each flower.  You can judge for yourself how you want to cut them to layer them.  I put the layers together using 3D Foam Squares....one under the center of each flower giving it dimension, and leaving the leaves and petals free.  For the berries I added a litle BLING :)
The Happy Holidays stamp is from the "Just To Say" Cricut Collection stamp set from Close To My Heart .  I think it all came together BEAUTIFULLY.

Here is a side view so you can see the dimension...


And here is a CAS version using the same stamp...
