Stardust and Sequins Poinsettia

Hi. I have another card to share very similar to yesterday – I just switched the colours around and added some sequins:

I liked how the teal and ‘Stardust‘ coloured card looked, so this time I used the Simon Says Stamp ‘Cling Stamp Poinsettia‘ on white card, stamped with SSS ‘Audrey Blue’ ink, then the Altenew ‘Poinsettia 3D die‘ cut using Concord & 9th ‘Stardust’ card stock.

For that added bling, some teal and yellowy/greeny/mustardy sequins – I’d love to know what colour these are……

I again used a Simon Says Stamp sentiment, but a different one this time.

A card which came together quite quickly, as I knew what I wanted and how to do it.

Teal Poinsettia

Hi everyone. I have a card to share using a different colour scheme for a poinsettia:

I recently bought some Lawn Fawn ‘Peacock’ card stock to participate in a Jenn Shurkus virtual class, and think this colour is so vibrant that I decided to use it for this poinsettia.

Using Altenew ‘Poinsettia 3D‘ die set I die cut all the layers and glued them together. The background is a Simon Says Stamp ‘Poinsettia’ cling stamp – a huge rubber stamp – that I’ve been wanting to play with for absolutely ages, and for this card I used a tone-on-tone look.

The mustard looking card is ‘Stardust’ from Concord & 9th, and the stamp was inked using the same ink cube – ‘Stardust‘, hence the tone-on-tone look.

The sentiment is from Simon says Stamp and CZ Designs ‘Good Cheer’, stamped in the same ‘Stardust’ ink on white – to match the white card base – and die cut with the matching dies.

I am pleased with how the colours worked together – I think it looks quite simple yet quite effective.

Poinsettia Christmas

Hello. A new challenge has begun at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge – the theme is ‘anything goes Christmas’. Here is my card:

I used Concord & 9th cardstock for the red and green leaves on the poinsettia, curled or bent the leaves a little for added dimension, before sticking them together.

The stitched backdrop is from Lawn Fawn, with some gold and Kraft striped paper at the top and bottom edges.

The die cut sentiment is from Altenew, layered a few times.

That’s it – fairly straight-forward – and it came together quite easily, I must say.

I hope you can come and join us with your Christmas creations – they can be anything Christmas, and not just cards. I look forward to seeing you there. xx
