Sugar-sprinkled Bouquet

 

When seeing the photo, my thoughts turned to blue, and the Feels Like Frost Designer Paper.

 

A blue, Seaside Spray card base, would blend beautifully with a piece of the Feels Like Frost DSP. I used a Stitched Rectangles Die to cut a 3/4″ frame, which I glued to the card base.

For the focal point, I used a Sweet Silhouettes Die to make a bouquet from Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  

 

I tied the frosty bouquet together with a Seaside Spay Metallic bow, attached with Tear & Tape.

 

The sentiment, “Have a Sugar-Sprinkled Season” is from the Itty Bitty Christmas, cut with an Ornate Frames Die. It added some warmth to my bouquet, by turning the frost into sparkling sugar. I like it this way! Don’t you?

How To Make A Poinsettia

Everyone needs poinsettias for the holidays. Right? I made a similar card last year, but used some new ingredients for today’s poinsettia card.

Christmas Poinsettia

 

 

I began with the same leaf from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set, stamping in Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, and Shaded Spruce Inks.

Then I used its Nature’s Roots Die for cutting the six bracts and three leaves.

Next, I distressed the leaves by embossing them with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder, wetting them with my Aqua Painter, and crimping with my stylus.

 

Before assembling the poinsettia, I prepared the Thick Whisper White card base, attaching a 4 1/4″ X 2″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock embossed with the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.

Then, I placed the leaves on Dimensionals, arranging them in a circle.

The center was made with Iridescent Sequins.

“Happy Christmas” is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die.

 

My layout is from Freshly Made Sketches.

Sip Sip Hooray!

Stampin’ Up’s! Sip Sip Hooray Stamp Set is perfect for saying, “congratulations on a job well done.”

Hooray!

 

I began by stamping three glasses in Memento Black Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock. Then, using the coordinating Sip & Celebrate Dies, the glasses were easy to crop.

The lime, strawberry, and mint, were stamped and cropped the same way, and colored with Stampin’ Blends. The colors are in my Product List below.

TIP: I cut the slice on the lime a bit deeper with Paper Snips, so it would fit snugly on the glass.

 

For the background, I “stamped off” four glasses on Whisper White Cardstock, and gave it a 1/16″ border of Basic Black Cardstock.

TIP: “Stamped off” means, after stamping in the ink, I stamped on scratch paper first, then on my project. This makes the image a lighter shade.

The card base is Thick Whisper White Cardstock that I embossed with the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder. It’s easy to overlook this new folder in the Holiday catalog, page 31.

 

“Hooray!” is in the Sip Sip Hooray! Stamp Set, fitting within a Merry Christmas Die just right.

 

My inspiration for today’s card was the theme at Global Design Project.

 

Thank you for stopping by. Now go out and celebrate!

I’ll be celebrating at Stampin’ Up’s convention in Las Vegas, but I’m working ahead, so the cards will keep coming. I appreciate your orders, which keep me creating. Thank you!
