Stuck on

poinsettias lately.  I am really getting into making them, glittering them....distressing them.....whatever!  I have been using the Spellbinder poinsettia die and really have been having fun just messing around with it.  I cut these poinsettias out on red paper, turned them upside down and "ground" them with a stylus.  Then I glittered them, outlined them with silver pen and let them dry.  When dry I just stick them altogether with GA and I am done!  Pretty easy....and there are so many tutorials on youtube that are so simple to follow.  I also used Spellbinders dies for the various die shapes on the card and a little Martha Stewart thistle punch that I have had forever!  The sentiment is Hero Arts clear sheet Joy To All stamp set.  I plan to enter this into the Hero Arts monthly contest for the Bring on the Bling category.


Again, it looks like this card is time intensive but it actually is not too bad at all.


Thank you so much for stopping by and I always appreciate all of your comments.  It is so nice to come on my feed and see the nice things you all have to say.  Take care now!

Be well,
Sheila

Love how you did your poinsettia Sheila. I've used mine heaps this year. I almost didn't buy the die, but am awfully pleased I did. Your card is just so delightful, I've pinned it to my inspirational board for CASEing.

The poinsettia master is back! You make it sound so easy, but it just can't be.....there is magic in those fingers! Spectacular. And, your layers are great, too. Rockin' here!
