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...
