What’s the most popular, holiday, flower? The poinsettia! So, that’s what I chose for this week’s “flower power” Global Design Project. Tomorrow August 3, Stampin’ Up’s 2021 “holiday” catalog goes live, and ordering can begin!
Today’s card is a combination of current product, and brand new product, that will be available tomorrow. Current product is in my Product List below, and I’ll give you the order numbers for the new product.
I began with a Soft Sea Foam card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, topped with a layer of basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. The white layer was embossed with one of our new products from the 2021 July-December Mini Catalog, the Merry Melody Embossing Folder #156392. You have to have music during the holiday season, right?
The next layer is another new product, the gorgeous, Painted Christmas Designer Paper #156292. I used an Ornate Layers Die for cutting, and glued it in the middle of the music.
Next, I stamped the poinsettia, from the current, Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set, in Soft Sea Foam Ink on Basic White Cardstock. There are three rounds of petals; small, medium, and large, which I cut with the dies you can see in the first photo. Then, I used three dies to emboss the petals for additional detail. Isn’t that cool?
I glued the large petals flat, and placed dimensionals between the other two.
Okay, I know you’re dying to know about about the sparkling flower center and sprig. They were cut with Poinsettia Dies from a new Sale-A-Bration product, Be Dazzling Specialty Paper #156629. This paper is amazing! It is thick, and cuts like our Foil Sheets, so it’s sturdy. And, the best news is, it’s FREE with a qualifying $50 order!
Finally, the sentiment is from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set, stamped in Garden Green Ink, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die.
The paper I used for photographing is another Painted Christmas design, #156292.
I know you have flowers in your stash. So, now you can show us your “flower power” by hanging your creation in our gallery.
