Festive Poinsettia Flower is Joy of the Season

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge inspired my Christmas poinsettia card this week.  My card base is Whisper White.  The diagonal stripe DSP is from the Candy Cane Lane paper assortment.  Love this paper!  The Garden Green layer was embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder.  I used a strip of Gold Satin ribbon.  After stamping the leaves and the petals of the poinsettia I traced the veins with clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.   After assembling the flower I put a gold doily behind it and used dimensionals to adhere to the Garden Green layer.  I embellished the Gold Satin Ribbon with small pearls.  I also used gold sequins and pearls to embellish the card.  I gold embossed the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set on the Whisper White banner.

Christmas Pines are Pretty Pines

This week my card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of  Real Red, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party.  I used the new stamp set Christmas Pines and Pretty Pines Thinlits dies bundle along with the Pine Bough Textured Embossing Folder.  I love the pine bough thinlets.  There are three different sizes which create such pretty foliage.  I also used the bow dies to create the Real Red and Bermuda Bay bows.  The Pine Bough textured embossing folder created a beautiful background on the Natural Ivory card stock.  After stamping the sentiment I used the 2-1/2″ circle punch to die cut it.   I love this bundle.  There are so many possibilities!

Making Spirits Bright Among the Branches

This week’s inspiration challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments inspired me to create this cute card using the Woodland Embossing folder and the greeting from Among the Branches stamp set.  I fussy cut the cute deer from the Home for Christmas DSP.

Reason for the Season Christmas Card

An elegant Christmas card is what I created, inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Very Vanilla, Metallic Gold and Basic Black.  I used the bundle with the Festive Flower Builder Punch and the Reason for the Season Stamp set.  With the Festive Flower Builder Punch you can create beautiful Poinsettias like the one I created from Vellum paper.

I stamped Vellum paper with Gold Encore ink.   For the center of the flower I used retired embellishment Frosted Finishes from last year’s Holiday Catalog.  Behind the flower I used Gold trim cording.  The corners of the layers (Very Black, Gold Foil) of the card I punched with the Curvy Corner Trio Punch.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark on a 1-1/2″ x 4″ strip of Very Vanilla then heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.

Festival of Trees

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color splash challenge with the colors of Tempting Turquoise, Smoky Slate and Pool Party.  As soon as I saw these colors I knew I wanted to create a card with the Festival of Trees bundle.  Creating this card was easy with the Tree Punch!

A Joyful Christmas in August

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge – Baked Brown Sugar, Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler,  These colors just say Christmas!  I created this card using the Joyful Christmas stamp set.

I stamped two poinsettia flowers on vellum and embossed with gold embossing powder then colored it from behind.  It’s such a pretty  look.  Like stained glass.  I cut out the larger flower then cut the center from the other one.  I used the same technique with the leaves and colored them with Garden Green.

Joyful Christmas poinsettia card

For embellishments I used basic rhinestones in the center of the flower and Baked Brown Sugar ribbon.  The sentiment is stamped with Cherry Cobbler and die cut with the  Apothecary Accents Framelits die.
