Happy Tuesday, crafty peeps! If you joined us for our latest Christmas release of new products, you got a glimpse of the amazing work being produced by our two new Guest Designers, Valerie Ward and Noriko Fairchild. This week, I’m inviting you to be our guest on the TE Blog and enjoy more projects from these two incredibly talented women. Today, I’m sharing a project from each of them that feature the loveliest of holiday blooms, poinsettias! Check them out…

First up is this stunning card by Valerie featuring our new Sleigh Bouquet stamp and coordinating die. Valerie set it against our Seasonal Trees die set in winter white. With a few of our Snow Flurries Sequins, she’s created a gorgeous snowy background.

I am in love with the coloring on the sleigh and how Valerie stamped and fussy cut several of the blooms for some incredible dimension. And below, Valerie didn’t forget the inside!

Next up, Noriko took things big with our Big Blooms – Poinsettia stamp set. How stunning is this?

This striking card is so lovely and so eye-catching — after stamping onto an embossed panel, she trimmed around the stamped poinsettia, popping the panel up to give the card an unusual reverse-depth effect. I just adore the gold-embossed sentiment from our Peaceful Poinsettias stamp set!

And Noriko coordinates the inside of the card with more gold embossing and simple stamping of the big bloom.

Join me back here tomorrow for more eye-candy from Noriko! Have a joyful day!
