Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a sketch challenge.
I used the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set and Poinsettia Dies to create my card today. (This is a Bundle that is carrying over and you can buy it before 12/31/20 at a 10% discount. However after 12/31/20 it has to be purchased separately and there is no discount.)

My card base is Whisper White with a mat of Whisper White that is embossed with the Winter Embossing Folder. I adhered them together with liquid glue. I cut a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP to the card front. I stamped the sentiment from Poinsettia Petals on another piece of Whisper White and adhered it to the DSP.

Next using Melon Mambo ink, I stamped the poinsettia from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set on a snippet of Whisper White and used a die from the matching Poinsettia Dies to cut it out. I adhered that to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I stamped the berries in Early Espresso on snippets of Whisper White and cut them out with the same die set. I colored the berries with my Light Melon Mambo Blend. They are adhered under the poinsettia with liquid glue. I used five Pearl Basic Jewels for the center of the flower.

The inside is really simple...I mean REALLY simple!

I stamped the sentiment from Poinsettia Petals with Melon Mambo ink and that was it!

On my envelope, I stamped a pine cone from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set and adhered a strip of matching DSP on the flap but there is no photo as it's in the mail already!
