Hi again – DO HOPE you have taken the opportunity to purchase stamp sets during today’s 24 hr STAMP SALE! If not, get on it 😏

 

Today’s card is another using the Poinsettia Petals Bundle – I just love this set… so FUN to create using different colors, either on the bloom (bract) itself or the background. I’ve done both today…

Poinsettia Petals Bundle
#1

Is this gorgeous or what?! Now that I look at it, I guess I could have added some linen thread behind the poinsettia for more texture – that might have been very nice. What I DID add was Shimmery Crystal Effects to the berries. It adds a wonderful sheen in real life – not certain it shows in this photo though. I also add the same Shimmery Crystal Effects to the center of the flower on the envelope. Again, it doesn’t show but I did do it. So, steps, how to..

  • Thick Whisper White for the card base
  • Crumb Cake layer both inside and out
  • ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP – die cut with second largest Stitched Rectangles Dies
  • Whisper White for stamping/ die cutting the poinsettia, leaves & sentiment: Stamp everything using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Color the Poinsettia layers with Crumb Cake Blends; color the leaves with Just Jade Blends, color the berries with Cherry CobblerBlends. Die cut all: 2 small leaves, 1 large leaf, 4 layers of poinsettia bracts and 3 berry clumps. Curl the poinsettia bracts and leaves with a bone folder.
  • Adhere the DSP layer to the Crumb Cake with liquid glue.
  • Adhere the poinsettia together with liquid glue. Adhere flower to the DSP/ Crumb Cake panel with liquid glue. Place leaves and adhere with liquid glue. Lastly add the berry clumps, again with liquid glue.
  • Cover the berries with Shimmery Crystal Effects and set aside to dry.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and fussy cut. Place on Mini dimensionals and adhear to the card.
  • If the Crumb Cake/ DSP panel with the poinsettia/ berries is now dry, put dimensionals on the back and adhere to the card base.
  • Add a single Beaded Pearl to the poinsettia center then add Pearl Basic Jewels for the final touch completing the card front.

The inside…

#2
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Tuxedo 
    Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White
  • With a leaf stamp from Poinsettia Petals stamp set, stamp off twice with Just Jade ink and stamp in center of the sentiment.
  • Adhere the Whisper White panel to the Crumb Cake panel with liquid glue then add this to the inside of the card.

Envelope…

#3
  • Cover the envelope flap with a strip of the ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP (I used the same pattern). Add a strip of Crumb Cake cs to complete the flap. Trim.
  • On the front, stamp the poinsettia from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  • Color with Blends: Crumb Cake for the bracts, Cherry Cobbler for the center. TIP: be sure to slip a piece of scrap card stock inside the envelope when coloring the poinsettia – otherwise it will bleed through to the back of the envelope – and that’s a no-no.
  • Cot the center of the flower with the Shimmery Crystal Effects and let dry.
