Do you remember HERE where I did the splitcard technique and I had mentioned I wanted to try it again but instead of using stamps I wanted to try it using all die cuts, well I still needed some more Christmas cards for this month so I went with using my poinsettia dies, they didn't fill up the area as well as the stamps did but I was very pleased with the outcome of these.

I wanted a little extra to them so I added a little more greenery to it and added some stickles to the tips to give it a bit of sparkle!  Some Liquid pearls to the center of the flowers too.  This time I did the splattering before I even started add the diecuts.  I love the look of pink poinsettias with a touch of red so that is what I went for with these.

Poppystamps - Blooming Poinsettia dies w/ Distress ink Fired Brick
Tim Holtz, Sizzix - Funky florals #3 die
Hero Arts - Merry Christmas messages sentiment stamp
Spectrum noir - Red Berry Sparkle marker for splatters
Stickles - Xmas red
Liquid Pearls - Emerald green

Our house is totally surrounded by water once again, we are having such high volumes of rain and thunder and lightning, our shed is once again under water so far our house is ok.  Poor Opie our cat, between the fireworks and all these storms he is tired out and so wired up.  I was looking forward to my garden to get some water but it didn't need this much, uggghhh!

Hope your day is going better than mine,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

Just stunning Connie, I will have to look into the technique for a split card. Love the beautiful pink poinsettias. Wow that sounds like a lot of rain and water.

Hugs Diane
