Merry Mistletoe and Glad Tidings

I used the beautiful new Poppy Stamps Mistletoe Side Strips and Stencil die to make a couple cards with mistletoe!...
 This first card, I used the die as it was designed, and stenciled color onto the white leaves with some distress oxide ink.  I love the detail of the leaves on this die!  I used Tonic drops and a piece of acetate, to make some mistletoe berries.  I used my exacto knife to remove the dryed dots, and then 
adhered them to the branches of the mistletoe...
 I layered the leaves a few time, then popped up the other side of the card panel, and used a layered Birch Press "Merry" die, cut from gold card stock.  
I DID use my Wink of Stella brush to give a little glitter to the leaves....although it's very subtle in this pic. Here's a close up...
  
The second card, I die cut the leaves, then cut them off the border strip with scissors.   I used the Poppy Stamps Winter Berries die, dotting the berries with Tonic drops, and die cut one of the  pretty Memory Box Stylish Frame Trio dies, to make a frame for the winter berries and leaves...
I stamped two sentiments from the Memory Box Tidings Wreath stamp set with versa mark and embossed with gold powder.  Here's a close up...
I am getting in the mood for Christmas!!  What fun!!  
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
