I love using my Poinsettia stamp!!


Yes I do love this Poinsettia stamp from Hero Arts, it really is so versatile and has been my go to stamp for all my Christmas cards this year.  I decided I wanted to make some CAS cards with it so for this card I have just stamped in and gold embossed the stamp and then partially die cut the rectangle then fussy cutting the rest of the leaves.  I have then layered it up on some more white card after adding the strip of ribbon. The "Merry" is a Memory Box die. I couldn't resist adding a few pearls to finish.  I am entering this in two challenges. "Anything Goes " at the Simon Says Wednesday challenge and Die Cut Divas "Layer It"



My second card has proved very difficult to photograph,  I have used a background using the Waxed paper embossing technique, then stamped and embossed in gold the Poinsettia.  I have then added two layers in White.  The sentiment is also Hero Arts.



Another view, I think the wax embossed background is my favourite Technique at the moment, I have used it on so many cards.  I will also add this card to the two challenges.


Just to finish I thought I would show you the view from my craft room window today, its a really cold winters day but the sun is shining and the mist is laying in the hills, so beautiful and inspiring!

Two more poinsettia beauties, Sally! Just love how you stamped toward the edge and cut around the flower on card one! And the white layer over the gold looks great on card two!!
