For those of you that have any inkling of crafty-ness on the brain, then you know that July is the start of the Christmas count down! It's only "weeks" before all those gifts have to be handmade, those cards hand-stamped and addressed, and all those packages have to be in the mail! And for those of you that sell to those of us not organized enough to make all those wonderful crafty items, you've got all the craft shows and Etsy shops to fill up too! So Christmas in July is a blessing and a curse!! A blessing because the earlier we start the better. But a curse because you know from now until January you will be crafting ideas in your head if not creating them in your studio!! I know...trust me!!
But the good news is... the wonderful new Heartfelt Creations "Sparkling Poinsettia Collection" has arrived to help get you started! Yippeeh!!
Rediscover the majesty, serenity and pageantry of Christmas with Heartfelt Creations' Sparkling Poinsettia Collection. This glorious ensemble of stamps, dies and papers captures the stately splendor of Christmas with a regal color palette of burgundy, evergreen, taupe and cream. Radiant poinsettias take center stage amidst a host of traditional Nativity scenes, twinkling candles, drifting snowflakes, lacy flourishes, exuberant banners and Heartfelt greetings that are worthy of the King of Kings. Six detailed stamp sets echo the glorious images found in the paper collection and two coordinating die sets can be used to create sparkling poinsettias that will never wilt or fade. Chronicle sweet memories of the season, share holiday joy with family and friends, hail the holy babe born in the manger and deck the halls with Sparkling Poinsettia!
Use it to create your own gorgeous poinsettias in beautiful holiday colors and many different sizes and you'll have the basis for lots of gifts, gift packaging and personal cards ready for giving away (or selling!!). The paper collection that goes with this release is beautifully traditional, easy to create with and wonderfully inspiring! You're going to love it!
The card I made this week uses the new Paper Collection, a single background stamp and a medium sized poinsettia die cut from shinny gold foil card stock. The background stamp is a quick way to create a wonderful traditional holiday scene that comes together quickly and can be used many different ways. My step by step instructions can be found on the HC Blog.
