Christmas Blessings Blog Candy Reminder

Christmas Blessings is a beautiful stamp set featured on page 19 of the Stampin’ Up! Idea Book & Catalog… love the long stemmed graceful poinsettia image don’t you?  1.suotuesdaycardforcreatedbyublogspotsfield

Today’s card is another creative play card… featuring scraps and bits left over from other cards.  A little bit of this, a little bit of that and some marina mist dsp from the designer series paper pack.

The lovely long stemmed poinsettia floral image was stamped using memento black ink, and then colored using copic markers.   After coloring, the image was cut out aka ‘fussy cut’ using paper snips and mounted dtp (direct to paper) using stampin’ dimensionals also known globally as pop dots.

Scraps of DSP were punched using circle punches, and layered with glimmer paper to give a semblance of Christmas bulbs.

Texture was added to copic painted bulbs using a colorless blender and markers in similar colors… kind of cool, right?

The ornament top was created using just one of the itty bitty labels punch pack, cut in half or close to that measurement… I thought it looked remarkably like an ornament topper.  Don’t you?

Dimension on today’s card is provided by shadows added to the fussy cut image, and stampin’ dimensionals.  Cherry Cobbler bakers twine was added after the fact by slipping the tips of my snips beneath the glued DTP ornaments and anchoring with just a drop of multipurpose adhesive!

Don’t forget the paper craft crew challenge this week!… there’s a lot of phenomenal blog candy up for grabs!!  I’m even giving away a brand new blessings from heaven stamp set and holiday frames embossing folder… check it out in the PCCS014 Blog Candy Post!!

See you tomorrow, I look forward to reading your comments!

Hugs,
Sharon

I think I have mentioned before Sharon that I love poinsettia cards...this one is no exception!! The reds pop so beautifully against the cool blues.
