Classic Christmas Poinsettia


Hope you are doing well and grabbed a bargain yesterday with that fabulous stamp sale. I got in on it as well. Make sure you’re following my blog and my Facebook Page. I’ve got some fun coming up and you don’t want to miss out on it.

I’m on Day 21 of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge (a little bit behind… I’m forgetting what day it is!)! It’s Classic Christmas theme. Oh my, so many choices with traditional red and green, nativity scenes, stars, pine trees, snow … the list is endless.

I went for a classic gold, cream and green colour scheme with a large poinsettia from the Poinsettia Petals bundle as my main image. Just Jade has become my new favourite green and it is a beautiful Christmas green.

The poinsettia was heat embossed in Gold on Whisper White cardstock to stand out against the Very Vanilla background. I embossed the Vellum with the Old World Paper Embossing Folder. Then I brushed the end of the Versamark pad on the back of the paper. I chose the reverse side as this had more areas that were raised with the dry embossing. This made it easier to apply the Versamark.

The sentiment from the For Unto Us stamp set has been heat embossed in Gold as well. I love this sentiment stamp set because of the meaningful sentiments and the beautiful fonts. After consulting with my artistic director (my 17 year old daughter), and deciding the card needed a bit more colour, I die cut a circle from the Designer Series Paper, cut it in half and placed it at the back of the sentiment.

Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights August – Encouragement

Thank you for stopping by my blog, Stamping Flair, today. Demonstrators from around the world are being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and the theme this month is Encouragement.

I chose hues of greens and blues for this card to make it bright and cheery and perfect for our theme. 

Oh Darling, you are fabulous ….I love this sentiment and think it would really lift someone up. 

The background was created by stamping the leaves in Soft Sea Foam and Granny Apple Green. I love the bright, summery feel of these shades of green. I then added the heat embossed, Gold leaves which really add to the cheering up sentiment of my card. 

To create the double colour on the sentiment, I used the Stamparatus. First I stamped in Pretty Peacock. Then moving the cardstock a tiny bit to the right, I masked the sentiment with washi tape and inked the stamp with Granny Apple Green. Then I stamped the sentiment which creates the pretty double colour on the word ‘darling’. 

I mounted the sentiment on another oval die cut from Pretty Peacock Cardstock and embossed with the Tufted Embossing Folder. This has then been adhered onto a Soft Sea Foam oval to create a pretty, focal mage. 

The bow was formed by snipping a section of the linen ribbon apart. I created a mock bow using glue dots to secure in place.
