At our monthly “card classes,” we always make five projects. Typically, we make two each of two cards, and then one of another that’s a little more involved. This time, instead of a fifth card, we’ll be making poinsettias with the Reason for the Season stamp set and Festive Flower builder punch.
These are so pretty, I think. The top one is Real Red with Garden Green leaves. It’s actually a double flower, because I made it into a tree ornament for Christmas. The back of it is exactly like the front.
Because some poinsettias are pink or white, though, I decided to try a few other options. I stamped the bottom left one in Regal Rose on Regal Rose cardstock. The greenery is Wild Wasabi. It’s a little softer than the Garden Green. And the white flower is Wild Wasabi stamped on Whisper White cardstock. (Oops – I made these while I was away, and I didn’t take any embellishments with me. Just realized two are missing a little bling – which I will remedy straight away!)
These are so much fun to make, and very, very simple. Just stamp and punch. Or you could even punch and then stamp, since the stamp set is photopolymer and you can see through the stamps for perfect placement. And you don’t have to make poinsettias. You can make any color festive flower – so you’re ready for any season!
These are perfect for lovely, handmade ornaments, but you can also use them as magnets or embellishments for tags or cards. I’m thinking of using these instead of bows on gifts. And how pretty would it be in vellum with gold or silver embossing for a wedding? The possibilities go on and on! I may change my projects for Thursday’s blog hop now that I’ve given myself a great idea!
Give the bundle a try! This stamp set and punch are not retiring January 4, so you have lots of time to play.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
