I have not posted much in the last week due to having so many special stamping events and getting things done for Christmas. I wanted to share a couple of Christmas cards.
I had seen several cards using the poinsettia from Joyful Christmas stamp set in the blue/green color pallette and I thought they were so pretty. This is my take on that combination. The poinsettia and leaf stamps are stamped using Versamark on Vellum cardstock and then heat embossed using silver embossing powder. Then just sponge ink on the reverse side. I heat set the sponged ink for about 20-30 seconds just to make sure it was good and dry. There is two layers to the poinsettia. The smaller one on top is just the middle of the stamped image cut out and put on with a dimensional. The center is some of the silver glass glitter put on with a little Tombo glue. This was one of the favorites in my classes.
The card below used the same stamp set but has a totally different look. This card was inspired by Stampin' Up! demonstrator Nikki Spencer. You can see her card here. The poinsettia is embossed wth gold embossing powder on Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the leaves are done using Old Olive cardstock.
Last night my daugheter, Lynn Ann, and son, Jason, and I went to Hollywood Studios to see the Osborne Christmas lights and snow. I saw them last year but my kids had not and since we got the Disney Florida resident pass we can go almost anytime. We had a great time and a yummy dinner at the Brown Derby resturant.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
