I have a thing for poinsettias. I love them and used to purchase them at Christmas time, but gave up a few years ago because I cannot keep one alive to save my life. So... I have taken to purchasing poinsettia stamps... much longer lasting! My most recent purchases have been Penny Black's Christmas Star and the lovely poinsettia stamp I used on my card today from the ODBD set Blessed Christmas. And to make it even better, Kelley the owner of ODBD came out this year with a die to match the image!! I'm in poinsettia heaven!!!
I made the card for the current ODBD challenge which this week is a lovely sketch. I stamped the poinsettia image on some yummy papers from the new Websters Pages Christmas Collection Combo Waiting for Santa/Sweet Season. One image was diecut using the die and the other was trimmed out by hand. Both were ink distressed with my new favorite distress ink: Old Paper. The trimmed out flower was popped up on top of the diecut image with foam dimensionals. Additional Websters Pages paper were used for the background pieces. The card base is PTI's Fine Linen. The red cardstock is SU!'s Cherry Cobbler (I think!). All the pieces were ink distressed with Old Paper, as well. I love how the card turned out.
Thanks for taking a peek.... hope you are able to keep your poinsettias alive!!
