Peace, Love, Joy
Happy Tuesday everyone.
On Saturday I discovered that the Scrapbook Page had received the 19 new dies from Poppy stamps. The first die I decide to use of the 11 (yes, 11 of the 19) that I had bought was the Poinsettia die cut. I cut the leaves out of green card stock. The next three layers of the poinsettia were cut from two different red card stock pieces. I finally cut the last layer using a shimmer gold card stock.
I layered everything together using glue dots. I just love it! I can't wait to try different color combinations. As you know poinsettias just aren't red anymore. I've seen blue and pink. I'm thinking of doing a white poinsettia and then doing the veins in gold glitter.
Anyway, the card base is the same green as the leaves. Next came a smaller layer of white card stock. I stamped the Hero Arts sentiment using VersaColor evergreen pigment ink. I then added gold glitter domes to the top of the poinsettia and in the top right hand corner.
I also stamped inside the card another Hero Arts sentiment which reads "Wishing you peace, happiness, and the warmth of the season." It was also stamped in evergreen pigment ink.
Have a great day everyone. It's off to cut some more poinsettias using my new favorite die cut from Poppy stamps.
