Happy Holidays

November 10, 2020

Sometimes I get stuck for ideas when I want to use a specific stamp set, so I often purchase tutorials from Connie & Mary to get me started. Today’s card was inspired by one of their creations but, of course, I had to put a little of my own spin on it. I attached two different pieces of the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper to the left hand side of Cherry Cobbler card. I stamped the greeting from the Poinsettia Place stamp set onto Whisper White card using Garden Green ink and attached it to the card front partially over the Designer Series Paper.

I attached a narrow strip of Soft Suede card across the card front before attaching the whole panel to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card. I stamped the flower, two leaves and two berry stem images from the Poinsettia Place stamp set onto Whisper White card using Soft Suede ink. I added the berries to the berry stems using Real Red ink and coloured the flower using Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and also the leaves using Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends.

I cut out the images using the co-ordinating Poinsettia Dies. I cut Silver Foil card using another leaf die and the flower centre from the Poinsettia Dies. I attached the flower to the card front using dimensionals and attached the leaves and berry images behind the flower. I coloured six small Basic Rhinestones using the Dark Cherry Cobbler blend and attached them to the flower centre. The flower centre is attached to the flower using a Glue Dot. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the greeting from the Wishes & Wonder stamp set using Garden Green ink. I stamped the berry stem from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set next to the greeting using Soft Suede ink. I added the berries to the stem using Real Red ink.

I love this card, don’t you? Thanks Connie & Mary for the inspiration.

Bye for now,

Kris
