I have three cards to share with you today.

Peace Poinsettia

Stamps:  Poinsettia CC361
              Peace E13810

I stamped the poinsettia onto bristol smooth paper, and used colored pencils to color the petals.  I embossed the Peace word onto burgundy card stock, and fussy-cut it, then added it to the panel.   I dyed white seam binding with distress inks and water to match the card, then wrapped it and added a bow.

Sending Cheer Leaves

Leaf 1  D13818
Leaf 2  E13817
Leaf 3  D13816 
French Text Cover-A-Card   CC151

I loved creating this card!  Playing with inks is what I enjoy most.  I brushed some distress ink colors onto watercolor paper, then stamped the three leaves randomly over it.  I stamped the French Text background over that, then mounted it onto some layers and a card.

For the image panel, I stamped Leaf 1 with distress ink, added some of the French Text, and some distressing along the edges.  Layered onto a rust colored panel, torn, and foam taped to the card.  The verse is stamped, and cut into a banner, and some dyed string give it the finishing touches.

Giving Thanks For You

Stamps:  Pretty Pitcher Clear Set  WP962
               Giving Thanks  C21233

I think my favorite set in this release is this Pretty Pitcher set.  It has 15 branches of different leaves, along with the pitcher and 7 other elements.  Soooo many possibilities with this one set!   

I stamped several of the leaf branches along the left and top of a panel of bristol card stock.  I sponged distress inks in shades of yellows to distress.  I added the verse stamped panel, some buttons and a twine wrap-around with bow.
Finally, I flicked some spatters onto the panel, then layered it onto an A2 card front.

You can find the other designer's cards on the IO post HERE.

Don't forget to comment on each post each day for so many chanced to with a $25 IO gift certificate to the Impression-Obsession store!

I hope you were inspired by my creations.  Thanks for visiting my blog today.  See you tomorrow with Day 3 inspiration!

Seeing it in action though, I know it will end up in my cart!!! Gorgeous!
