Christmas Poinsettia

Hello everyone, I hope your weekend is going well, this is my second post for today!   The previous was to participate in the Art Journal Journey challenge.

I have a design today that is a little different for me.   I love flower dies, I own lots of them, but I don't use them enough.    On the design below I used the Spellbinder Poinsettia with the JustRite matching stamp but you can see I didn't do the best job lining them up.

One of my kind & talented blog friends kindly advised me about the JustRite Christmas Linky Party  so I'm joining in, thanks Shona !

Beautifully done Shirley. I see no problem with "lining" things up. It is perfect just the way it is. - Jim

A lovely poinsettia and the embossing folder in the background works well with it. I love the colours of card you have used Shirley and the embossing on the petals and the background flourish make this a really pretty Christmas card. x

I always have trouble to line these up and thats way I also don't use them enough (just as my other dies) I still think the flower is beautiful! Hugs, Gerrina

Shona said...

YAY! Time to play with the dies! I love flower dies and the poinsettia stamps and dies are a big favourite of mine. I also have trouble lining them up accurately, but I saw a Heartfelt Creations video that shows a method where you make a template with the dies. http://www.heartfeltcreations.us/howto?view=videos&videoID=55
I haven't tried it yet, but it looks like a great idea.
You should link up your pretty card to the JustRite Linky party before it ends.

Can you believe we haven't had frost yet? I picked Swiss Chard for my dinner today, and my flowers are still gorgeous!

Awesome. I must be missing something not aligning properly, as it looks terrific to me. Love the colors you selected and the flourishes & florals look super with the spattered background. TFS

Stunning card, Shirley--one of my favorites! I've admired that die for a couple years, but finally got a different poinsettia & need to get it out of the package! You've inspired me!
