merry & bright...

Hello friends!!  Have a little card to share with you.  Our weather here in Western Washington has been really bad and that means lots of time inside to do some crafting.  But I have been experiencing a wee problem... no mojo!  Finally got some by making a card using some brand new Penny Black stamps and the current Sketchbook Saturday sketch


Penny Black has some of the most beautiful poinsettia stamps and they have done it again with a new one called "warm wishes".  The moment I saw that stamp I had to have it.. and now I do!!  YAY!!  I started my card by stamping the image on some patterned paper from Stampin Up! called Winter Frost using watermark ink.  I applied silver embossing powder, heat set the image and then trimmed it out.   Some glue was applied to the center of the flower and I poured on some light blue glitter.  The banner (from the Penny Black set "Christmas banners") was stamped on pale aqua cardstock using watermark ink, silver embossing powder applied, heat set and then trimmed out.  Additional papers from the "Winter Frost" pad were cut and layered per the sketch and the flower added to finish things off. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Pool Party; PP:  SU! Winter Frost; Stamps:  Penny Black; Ink:  VersaMark Watermark ink; Embossing powder:  Ranger Ultra Fine Silver; Glitter:  Stampin Up!; Fiskars corner rounder

Absolutely stunning card, Rosemary! I really wanted that stamp, but told myself I didn't need another poinsettia--dumb!

Hello Rosie
Your card is gorgeous and even though you are creating such gorgeous pieces I can understand how difficult it is when there is no enthusiasm, keep plugging away, it will return and you will enjoy the process soon enough.

Why does the mojo disappear when we actually have the time to stamp? So frustrating!! It has clearly come back for you though as this card is a real stunner! That is such a gorgeous poinsettia image and I love that you used that yummy blue paper instead of the usual red. :D

YAY for aqua!! But I've never seen a poinsettia done in it - such a striking effect though! Fantastic :)
