Christmas Poinsettias

Good Morning !

I am busy making card samples with the new Shirley Doodle stamps    I had fun this week working on these Christmas Poinsettia cards.

I stamped the flower 3 times on white paper and embossed with Gold.   The leaves and flourishes at the bottom were also embossed with gold.   I blended Aged Mahogany Distress Ink on the flowers, then added Interference Red -  MicaColour Paint and added more dimension with my Tom Bow markers.  I then cut out the flowers and layered as shown.  Stickles & a pearl sprig were added as final touches !

Stamped used:   Shirley Doodle Wavy Poinsettia, Impression Obsession Cover a Card - Flourishes CC027, Penny Black - Crystalline Sentiments & Snowflakes 30-018 (with Dye Ink), the leaves are from Hero Arts CL427 Antique Flower set.

Paper is by Basic Grey - Wassail 6x6 pad.  

I hope you can see the sheen from the Micacolour paints in these photos  !  

The card above was created with the same stamps & techniques but with alternate colours.  The paper is also from Basic Grey - Wassail. 

Have a great day & thanks for stopping by !

Hi Shirley!
What a beautiful stamp you have designed!! It is just BEAUTIFUL and very professional and whimsical too at the same time! This is a really nice card, well done, so elegant and such pretty colours and pretty paper, I love the two kinds you used! The gold embossing is GREAT too, such a nice effect, esp on Xmas cards!
Looking forward to seeing what else you are designing!
Greetings from Marn :)
