Hey guys – Happy HAWWWWMP day!! And uhm…it’s Tax Day in the Time of COVID, so….don’t forget!
FYSA – f you’re expecting a new Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog from me in the mail – give it a couple of days and then start looking and bugging Mr. Postman.
And – don’t flame me – I know there are Postwomans…but so far there hasn’t been a song, okay?
In that catalog, one of the MANY wonderful new goodies you’ll see is the Poinsettia Place Suite – anchored by today’s Sneak Peek – the Poinsettia Petals Bundle and Poinsettia Place DSP! I paired those new goodies with the fun and handy Itty Bitty Christmas set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. Take a look-see:
Yep – jumped smack back into my wheelhouse – layers, big bows, greenery and woodgrain! Whoo-hooo!!
The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch challenge over at CAS(E) This Sketch.
I started with some woodgrain paper from the new Poinsettia Place DSP – there are some wonderful designs to choose from in this paper, y’all! And – you can try them all out with one of my paper shares. Just sayin’….
I matted that paper on a piece of Soft Suede with Liquid Glue to create the card front.
Then I took a die in the Stitched Triangles die set – this is destined to be one of my go-to layering die sets!! – and cut a piece of pine-cone-strewn paper.
I laid it on the card front and then put the whole thing into my Stamparatus. With the triangle in place – held with the magnets – I added the small sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas in Soft Suede. I stamped it multiple times in order to get it dark enough and visible on the wood-grain paper.
I stamped the pine bough from Poinsettia Place in Garden Green a couple of times on the card front.
Then I cut a couple of holly leaves using the cutting die and the embossing die in the set. I spritzed the card stock with water before cutting – to really emphasize the embossed veins in the leaves.
I also cut some berries from the wunnermus Brushed Metallic 12″ x 12″ card stock (I used the Bronze – but there’s also copper and gold in the pack!).
Finally – and this is so stinkin’ cool! – I used the large die in the Poinsettia Die set to cut the flower from one of the designs in the Poinsettia Place DSP.
I laid it all out and then adhered the leaves and berries with Liquid Glue.
Then I tied a Linen Thread double-loop bow and adhered it, and a Gold Hoop Embellishment, with a Glue Dot. I popped the flower over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added some gold Metallic Pearls here, there and…in the middle of the flower…and four Antiqued Corners with Glue Dots – and the card front was done!
On the inside, I once again laid a Poinsettia Place DSP Stitched Triangle die cut on a piece of Whisper White and used my Stamparatus to stamp a second Itty Bitty Christmas sentiment in Soft Suede.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the triangle to the panel and then mat the panel on Soft Suede. Then I adhered the panel inside my Crumb Cake card base with Liquid Glue. I added the card front with Liquid Glue – plenty of dimension already – and the card was done.
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a poinsettia – two of the smaller flower images, stamped in Soft Suede and blended lightly with a Blender Pen, with the flower center colored using my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker – on the front…
…and more of the Poinsettia Place DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Wow – how gorgeous is this Poinsettia Petals stamp set with the stunning bundled Poinsettia Dies?!?
And it’s made even better knowing you can cut perfectly colored flowers right from the Poinsettia Place DSP using that large die in the bottom righthand corner of the picture above! Oh, yea….you can ALSO cut the flocked poinsettia from the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper! Winner Winner!
I hope you like – and have added this suite of goodness to your list for the catalog launch on 4 Aug!!
