Here's my entry for this month's Woodblock Wednesday. I used one of a set of 4 stamps from Hero Arts called Words & Flowers, dated 2008, and did some easy paper-piecing..

I was intrigued by the Tuck It dies from PaperTrey Ink when I first saw them, but it took me awhile to get them. I think they'll be a natural with all my posies, don't you think? The premise of these dies is that they make a partial die-cut so that you can tuck in something behind what becomes your sentiment label.
Here's my first play.

I promised you a look at the add-on sets that are available to go along with the Make It Merry kit. Here I used the embossing folder, the floral die-cuts, and the sentiment die-cuts, and paired them with the solid cardstock and the red jewels from the kit.

Today I have 5 cards that I made using the supplies in the Make it Merry Cardmaking kit from Spellbinders. This kit contains everything you will need to make lots and lots of cards for Christmas, even adhesive, envelopes, and card blanks in 2 sizes, not to mention a pad of printed papers, matching cardstock, including gold and silver metallic, and lots of ephemera to mix and match. This kit has gold metallic accents and there are 2 each of the ephemera pieces.
Here are my cards.

Yana has done it again! She's releasing some Christmas goodies and you are going to love them! I chose 5 sets from her Yana's De-Light-ful Christmas release, and I have 5 cards to share with you today!
All of my sentiments have been foiled with Yana's Merry Little Christmas Sentiments glimmer plates and various colors of glimmer foil. The sentiment glimmer plates consist of 4 large script sentiments with matching shadow dies, and 5 smaller text sentiments.
First up, 2 cards featuring her Poinsettia Bloom dies.

The Greetery recently had a new release, among which was a suite of products called Petal Pushers! The suite includes a very detailed cover plate, a set of layering stencils, and floral dies to match. I made 3 cards today.
First, I combined the cover die and the stencil set.
And then I used only the layering stencils:
