Poinsettia Petals in Eden
Hello, my friends! I know this is a late post. I was having so much fun with our Demonstrator Technique Night, I forgot to schedule anything. We created a super cute coffee mug treat holder with Christy.
I’ll post some of my little mugs later, but here’s a card inspired by Annette Elliott. I didn’t change much from her card; it was so gorgeous! Take a look.
I absolutely love the Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). It has lovely patterns and many shades of green with a little gold splashed in. If you want it, though, you need to order it now, because it is a limited time offering. It’s only available through January 3, 2022.
For my card, I stamped the three poinsettia layers from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set in Versamark on Basic White Cardstock, then embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I die-cut the berries and flower center from Gold Foil Sheets. I wanted the petals to be a little less bold, so I sponged some Soft Seafoam in over them with a Sponge Dauber, starting at the center and moving out to the tip of the petal.
Next, I stamped the leaves on Soft Seafoam Cardstock, again using Versamark so I could emboss with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I sponged them with Evening Evergreen.
Finally, it was time to put it all together. I added two patterns of the Ever Eden DSP to a Soft Succulent card base, then I added the gold berries and leaves. I stacked the poinsettia layers using Stampin’ Dimensionals, then added the center, also with a Stampin’ Dimensional. I really didn’t want to use a tag for the sentiment (from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set), so I stamped it directly on the DSP with Evening Evergreen Ink. To make it extra dark, I stamped it three times, using my Stamparatus for perfect placement.
One more Christmas card done! Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
