Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Framed Poinsettia Christmas with Video Tutorial

‘Sup, y’all?? Is your weekend going well?  Ours is going as expected – under a gorgeous blue, GA Fall sky!  Yep – the weather is beyond perfect – one of those days that help us forget the miserable days of summer!

I’m planning to go “help” my friend Jan today.  I might have told y’all that their lab had puppies last week.  And Jan is trying to do a lot of puppy holding to get them people-acclimated and socialized.  I have SELFLESSLY volunteered to go hold puppies to give her a hand.

I know.  I am such a GIVER! 😉

So…if you were able to join me yesterday afternoon for my YouTube tutorial, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay – here ’tis!

I pulled out my Merriest Moments stamp set with the gorgeous Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder (this is a 3D Embossing Folder designed to work hand in hand with the Merriest Frames Dies).  The result is a clean and white card with a pop of color from a pretty Poinsettia.  Take a look-see:

I was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge for this one.

And the color palette is from the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

I started by embossing a Basic White panel in the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder – then I matted the panel on a piece of Night of Navy with Liquid Glue.

I matted a strip of Gold Specialty Metallic Paper on Night of Navy and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I ran a second Basic White panel thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine in the Merriest Frames folder.  Then I put the die from the Merriest Frames Hybrid Die set in place and cut out the large and gorgeous floral image.

I stamped one of the pretty sentiments from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Night of Navy in the center of the die cut and then popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Note: I deliberately made the die cut “upside down” when compared to the embossing on the card front – so that the pretty embossing is visible! 🙂

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the large and small poinsettia from Merriest Moments in Rich Razzleberry.  I stamped two leaves images and three small “frond” images in Old Olive.  Then I cut them all out with their matching dies from the Merriest Frames Hybrid Dies.

I also cut five of the pretty flowers from the gold Specialty Metallic Paper.

I did some dry fitting and then adhered the leaves, fronds and gold flowers with Liquid Glue.

I stacked the flowers with a Stampin’ Dimensional and used Liquid Glue to adhere two of the little gold flowers with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the flowers with a couple of Dimensionals.

I added some small, clear Wonderful Gems – one in the middle of the gold flowers on the poinsettia and two in the corner of the sentiment frame – and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a second Merriest Moments sentiment in Night of Navy to a Basic White panel.  Over the top, I stamped the largest frond image in stamped-off-once Old Olive.  Then I added a small, clear Wonderful Gems gem.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Thick Basic White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the large frond image in full-strength Old Olive on the front…

…and again on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How pretty is this three-piece Merriest Moments stamp set with the bundled Merriest Frames Hybrid 3D Embossing Folder??  It’s just a stunning way to create absolutely gorgeous layering pieces!!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

Mom!  You dropped something on the floor!

I think it’s a cheese bag!

I’ll just take this and dispose of it properly, Mom.

  2. Such a beautiful card! Love the white-on-white with the touches of gold and Rich Razzleberry. Well…to be fair, the cheese was on the floor and he’s just doing his part to clean up. 😉

      Oh my goodness. I bet he/she is absolutely adorable! Don’t forget the hold-like-a-baby position in the crook of your arm (belly up) – that’s an important step! Thank you so much – I’m glad that you like the directions! 🙂 Have SO much fun with that new sweetie pie!
