Introducing… Poinsettia!

It’s Day 4 of our Power Poppy reveal for October and today we’re featuring another wonderful holiday stamp set called “Poinsettia”!

This stunning collection has two extremely detailed images for your Christmas cards plus four beautiful sentiments.  This will be be a “must have” for all your holiday purchases this year indeed!

For my card, I chose to have some fun with kraft cardstock and white embossing powder.  I first stamped the ornate poinsettia and boughs in the top left hand corner of a kraft card base.  Then I stamped the same image twice more on to vellum and fussy cut only the poinsettia out.

I added a bit of color using Copic markers on the BACK side of the vellum as to ensure I didn’t wreck the tips of my markers.  I used some 3D OLBA glue to stack and adhere my vellum layers.

Some cool white pen lines and dots, some score-line details and a gold embossed greeting finished off my card.

Thanks for joining us the past 4 days for our reveals.  Check back tomorrow when the Bloom Brigade showcases all kinds of holiday beauties!  But for now, check out what my fellow design team has done with the “Poinsettia” stamps for today…
