Sparkling Poinsettias

Hi Friends,

Wednesday is here again and I have a couple of "Sparkling Poinsettias Collection" projects to share!  Love this collection, love the poinsettias and the paper!!  Sigh....

I started by creating all my poinsettia flowers first.  I stamped the Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set twice with Peanut Brittle ink onto Blushing Bride cardstock.  I die cut all the petals and glued them together to make four different sized flowers.  I sponged all the petals with a light coat of diluted Carmine Red Viva Stamp Paint and added Stickles to the edges for sparkle.  I had the hardest time photographing these for some reason. It's probably the photographer...;)  Couldn't get the shimmer and sparkle to show up the way they look IRL!

For the card, I stamped the Sparkling Poinsettia Notes Cling stamp background with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with gold and Blushing Bride embossing powders.  I adhered the poinsettias to the panel using the image as a guide for placement. I added some gold, lacy fronds that were die cut using the Arianna Lace die set.

The ornament was made using the largest poinsettia flower which I hot-glued onto the snowflake.  (I purchased the snowflake in a set of 10 from Hobby Lobby after Christmas).  I stamped some leaves onto green patterned paper from the paper collection with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with gold EP,  I die cut them out with the matching dies and attached them under the flower on the snowflake.

I finished both projects with some sparkly green Christmas wire binding that I curled and tucked under the flower petals, a lacy ribbon and mini styrofoam balls to the centers of the flowers.
