Clean and Simple Poinsettia Card

Good Monday morning.  My project today is a clean and simple poinsettia card made using the Rubbernecker Poinsettia #1 paired with the Berries, Greenery and Square Combo Frame. I really like the simplicity of the pink poinsettia and green foliage against the white framed background.  Don’t laugh but I got this card totally put together and realized I had failed to put a Christmas sentiment in the lower portion of the frame before I attached it to the card base.  Oh well…it’s still pretty. Maybe I can fit a die cut sentiment in the opening. 

Come see how I made this clean and simple poinsettia card.

Assembling The Poinsettia

  • Cut the flower out once using pink cardstock and the largest flower section twice using pink cardstock.
  • Cut the tiny flowers out using yellow cardstock.
  • Use mini applicators to apply Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick ink to all the flower petals to add depth of color.
  • Place the flower sections face down on the molding pad and form the petals using the large round stylus.
  • Place the flower sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the center using the small tipped stylus to push the petals up.
  • Begin assembling the flower by attaching the layers together using glossy accents.  Off set the layers so no petals are lined directly over each other. I used two green layers on the bottom to create a full base.
  • Form the tiny flower centers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad and attach in the flower center using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this pretty clean and simple poinsettia card.

The  Berry Branches and Greenery

  • Cut the berry branches and greenery using green cardstock.
  • Cut the berries for  the holly using pink cardstock.
  • Apply glossy accents to the berry bases and use the jewel picker to pick up the berries and attach.
  • Apply Worn Lipstick ink to the berries to add a depth of color.

Create the Arrangement

  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the poinsettia and attach it to the card base.
  • Tuck the berry branches under the flower petals and holly and attach with glossy accents.
  • Tuck the greenery sections under the flower petals and attach with glossy accents.

Come see how I made this lovely clean and simple poinsettia card.

I hope you have been inspired to get out your poinsettia, berry branches and greenery dies to make a clean and simple poinsettia card of your own. I sure do appreciate you coming by and I hope you have a great day and a great week.

I had a great time working with Rubbernecker Stamps at the Rubber Stamp Events in Mesa, Arizona this past weekend.  I had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people and several who have followed my blog.  It was so nice to meet face to face and we took the opportunity to get some pictures as well. I appreciate all these ladies sharing their photos with me and allowing me to share them on my blog.

I had lots of fun making the pretty die cut poinsettia and holly card.  I hope you are inspired to get out your dies and make a card of your own.  If you don’t have a poinsettia die set be sure to check out the two new sets recently released by Rubbernecker.  Poinsettia #1 creates a smaller flower with a more pointed petals.  Poinsettia #2 is a larger flower with a more natural shape to the petals.  I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you have a great day.

Shabby Chic Framed Poinsettia

I have two shabby chic framed poinsettia cards to share with you today for the last day of Dare to Get Dirty over at Splitcoaststampers.  I used  the Impression Obsession Large Poinsettia Set, Small Poinsettia Set, Ornate Rectangle Frame, Ornate Oval Frame, Pine Pair, Pine Sprig Set and Berry Branches.  Today is the second day in a row showing how I add dimension with my Crimper.  The crimped Kraft cardstock combined with crackled texture paste made a perfect shabby chic background for my poinsettias and ornate frames.

Come see how I made this lovely shabby chic framed poinsettia card.

The Crimped and Distressed Crackle Layers

I cut two 5.25″ x 4.00″ Kraft rectangle layers and ran them through my crimper.  I scraped the blade of my deckle scissors along the edges of the cardstock to distress and dug into the cardstock in a few spots to create tears.  I used a small plastic spatula to apply the crackled texture paste.  I dipped the spatula into the paste to get small amounts at a time and then ran the blade up and down on the crimped cardstock lightly to cover.  I purposely left spots uncovered to create the shabby look.  Since I am impatient I heat dried the paste with my heat gun and watched the slight crackle appear.

The Poinsettias and Pine

I used both sets of the poinsettias for these cards.  I used the small set for the first card and the large set for the second.  I cut green flower layers to use as the base for my flowers using the largest dies in each set.  I cut one full set of the large poinsettia set and three sets of the small poinsettias.  I turned the flowers face down on my molding pad and formed each petal using my large tipped stylus.  I turned the flowers face up and gently pushed down in the center to make the petals pop up.  The flower sections were attached together using glossy accents. I formed several yellow 1/8″ punched circles with my small tipped stylus and molding pad to fill in the center of the large poinsettia.  I inserted white pre made Nuvo Crystal Drops to the small poinsettias and attached with glossy accents.

Come see how I made this pretty shabby chic framed poinsettia card.

Assembling the Shabby Chic Framed Poinsettia Cards

The multi part ornate frames were cut and the individual sections were attached together on the back using double stick tape.  Next, I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frames and attached them to the card base.

I cut multi sections of both of the pine die sets.  I used the larger pine pieces to create a base and to embellish the large poinsettia and attached them using glossy accents.  I used the small pine sprigs to create the bases for the small poinsettias and attached them using glossy accents.  The poinsettias were attached to the pine bases using glossy accents.  I cut several berry branches and attached small pink 1/8″ circles with glossy accents.  I tucked them in around the larger poinsettia to finish.  I tied a few strands of organdy ribbon together, heated to crinkle for aging and tucked it in under the top poinsettia on the first card and attached with glue dots. I added shimmer to the berries and large poinsettia using a shimmer pen.  I left the smaller poinsettias plain.

Question.  Which of the shabby chic framed poinsettia cards do you like best? I go back and forth but I think the first card is my favorite.  Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have a great start to your weekend.
