Welcome to the latest Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. This month we are showcasing projects we’ve made with products from the Poinsettia Place Suite.
All of the products in this suite are AMAZING! I’ve been making a heap of cards with the Poinsettia Place Stamp Set, so this time I wanted to show off the pretty and perfectly coloured poinsettias that you can trim from the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper pack. I also trimmed the leafy stem and pine cones images from the DSP and adhered them to my card. The large leaves that I’ve paired with my poinsettia are stamped with the leaf images from the Poinsettia Place Stamp Set. They’ve been coloured with my Mint Macaron Blends.
I cut the card base with a Rectangle Stitched Die and daubed Sahara Sand Ink on the Thick Whisper White Cardstock.To add some texture, I ran this piece through my embossing machine with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I then added a combination of papers from the Poinsettia Place DSP pack. Once I was happy with the layering of my poinsettias and sentiment, I then took my favourite Braided Linen Thread and layered it amongst the flower and leaves. Three Gold Glitter Enamel Dots finished off this card.
Like my first card, my poinsettias are trimmed from the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper and the leaves are stamped from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set. For this card, I added some stamped holly berries that have been cut with the Poinsettia Dies.
The DSP I’ve added to the base of my card is also from the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper pack. I took a piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock and daubed the edges before using my fingernail to rough up the cardstock. One Gold Enamel Glimmer Dot was added to this card.
For my third card, I created my own poinsettia’s by cutting some poinsettia die cuts with the Poinsettia Dies. I took my Water Painter and some Sahara Sand Ink and added colour to the die cuts, adding a darker shade to the centre of the flowers. I couldn’t resist adhering Beaded Pearls to the centre of the die cuts to make them pretty and bling-y. I kept my layering simple with this card to let the poinsettias shine.
I hope you like the projects I’ve created with these products. Make sure you check out all the wonderful projects the team have created. The next hop along the way is my very talented friend Nina Waldschmidt with her creations. Click here to take you to her blog or on the button below.
