Simply Sunday: Happy National Poinsettia Day!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a beautiful card to share highlighting the Poinsettia Petals Stamp set. Today I began with just Stamp * Ink * and Paper …. then introduced our Stampin’ Blends to create the stunning color on our poinsettia and a little texture on the background.

The card base is Cherry Cobbler as is the piece that I textured using the Tasteful Textile Embossing folder … The texture really makes the focal point of the card pop! My Basic White stamped piece measures 4″ x 2-3/4″ and the Basic Black mat measures 4-1/8″ x 2-7/8″ … you can use 1/4″ measurements on the mat to make it easier cutting (4-1/4″ x 3″).

Next, I stamped the Poinsettia in the upper-left hand corner, and the greeting in the lower-left hand corner.

Now it’s time to color … I’m using the Dark Poppy Parade and Dark Cherry Cobbler. I color the entire petal with the Dark Poppy Parade and then use the lines in the image to color in the Dark Cherry Cobbler. They blend so easily together and give you a deep rich color (the photo does not do it justice!) Once finished, I go back with the Dark Cherry Cobbler and color just the area closest to the yellow center … this was colored with Dark Daffodil Delight and highlighted with Wink of Stella.

I finished off the card with three of my favorites, the Elegant Faceted Gems and tied it up with the Bakers Twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo pack. Don’t ever be afraid to grab items from another bundle / suite to enhance your cards & hand stamped projects!

Thank you for checking in on me today …

Enjoy your Sunday!
