Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s hop, I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle with the ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to make a traditional Christmas Card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the festive color palette we are using for our projects:

Adhere the strip of colorful holly paper to the panel of red holly ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper with liquid glue. Adhered the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the front of a Real Red card base. Adhere the plaid ‘Tis The Season DSP to a Shaded Spruce mat and then adhere it to the card front.

Stamp the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Versamark ink on a strip of Shaded Spruce. Sprinkle it with white embossing powder and heat set until shiny. Trim the end with the Banner Pick A Punch and adhere it to the card front. Using the Poinsettia Dies from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle, cut the three largest petal clusters from Red Velvet paper with the middle embossing panel. Adhere the layers together with liquid glue.

Cut one of each leaf from the Poinsettia Dies from Garden Green and cut the flower center and berry sprig from gold foil. Adhere the flower center to the poinsettia with a glue dot and adhere the flower to the card front with more glue dots. Add liquid glue to the leaves and gold berry sprig and tuck them under the poinsettia. Finish the card front with three Wonderful Gems.

Stamp the poinsettia from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals photopolymer stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce and adhere another strip of plaid ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ DSP to the bottom of the panel. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle makes the most beautiful 3d poinsettia flower for Christmas cards. And the ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper is so festive – any card made with it is sure to bring holiday!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s hop, I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle with the pretty Poinsettia Place designer series paper to make a simple Christmas Card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using for our projects:

Adhere a panel of the holly Poinsettia Place designer series paper to a Soft Suede mat and pop it on the front of an Old Olive card base. Stamp the Merry Christmas greeting from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals photopolymer stamp set in Real Red ink on Soft Sea Foam card stock and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. Adhere it to the lower part of the card.

Cut out three of the leaves from the Poinsettia Dies (two large and one small) from Garden Green card stock. Use both the cutting and embossing dies. Cut out three berry sprigs from Bumblebee card stock and six poinsettia petals from Real Red. Cut out two of the smallest and two of the largest and one of each to the other sizes. Use both the cutting and embossing dies.

Gently bend the poinsettia petals backwards with your fingers and adhere the layers with liquid glue. Position the petals so that the upper layer falls between the petals on the lower layer with the largest on the bottom. Gently bend the tips of the leaves backwards with your fingers. Adhere the leaves and berry branches with liquid glue and the flower with glue dots. Finish the flower center with a beaded pearl and trim the label with a Real Red bow.

Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the berry sprig in Soft Suede ink next to the sentiment and stamp the berries in Real Red. Trim the bottom with a strip of Poinsettia Place designer series paper and adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

The Poinsettia Dies from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle make the most beautiful dimensional poinsettias that are great for cards and tags and any other Christmas project! And they are a perfect when paired with the Poinsettia Place designer series paper, which is currently on sale this month at a 15% discount!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Christmas Card

Good Morning! Today I have another Christmas Card made with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundles. For this card, I used the petal stamps with the outline dies to give definition to the flower petals and I paired the Poinsettia with the Poinsettia Place designer series paper that has a similar floral pattern. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Adhere the strip of wood grain Poinsettia Place DSP to the floral DSP and adhere them both to a Soft Suede mat. Pop it on the front of a Thick Whisper White card base. Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals photopolymer stamp set in Soft Suede ink and trim the end with the Banners Pick A Punch. Adhere the label to the bottom of the card

Cut the medium pine bough from Old Olive card stock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies and adhere the bough to the card. Stamp three leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green ink on Garden Green card stock and cut them out with the coordinating die. Stamp two berry branches from Bumblebee card stock using the Poinsettia Dies and adhere them to the card front.

Stamp two of the large poinsettia petal clusters and one each of the small and medium cluster from he Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White. Stamp the inside accents in Bumblebee ink. Cut each cluster out with the coordinating die. Gently curl the petals down with your bone folder and adhere them together, with the smallest on top. Brush clear Wink of Stella on the petals to add some sparkle. Adhere the flower to the card front with glue dots. Accent the center with red Wonderful Gems. Make a Real Red bow and adhere it to the card, tucking it under the flower.

Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the Poinsettia flower next to the sentiment in Bumblebee ink and adhere a strip of floral Poinsettia Place DSP to the bottom. Adhere the panel to a Soft Suede mat and adhere it all to the inside of the card.

I’ve made a few other cards with this beautiful flower, but this is the first one that I have stamped. And this is the first one that I have paired with the beautiful Poinsettia Place DSP which is one of the DSP paper packs that is currently on sale at a 15% discount – YAY!!.

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Christmas Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Christmas card made with the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. This is hands down the best poinsettia bundle ever! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it here if you prefer.

I started by cutting three sets of petal clusters and the embossing inserts from Real Red card stock using the Poinsettia Dies that are part of the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle. I also cut one each of the leaf dies with the embossing inserts from Garden Green card stock and a berry sprig from Silver Foil. I embossed a panel of Whisper White with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Whisper White panel. I popped the panel on the front of a Thick Whisper White card base using dimensionals.

I cut out the fancy label frame from vellum using the Ornate Layers Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals photopolymer stamp set in Real Red ink on a strip of Whisper White and cut it out with the stitched label from the Ornate Layers Dies. I adhered the label to the vellum frame with Stampin’ Seal and then adhered it to the card front.

I sponged the center and edges of each of the flower petals with Real Red ink and I sponged the edges of the leaves with Garden green ink. I gently curled the flower petals under with my bone folder and adhered the layers together with glue dots. I brushed each petal with the Wink of Stella glitter brush and adhered one of the beautiful new beaded pearls to the center. I adhered the flower to the card front with glue dots. Then I adhered the leaves and silver sprigs and a polka dot tulle bow.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the poinsettia in the lower corner, also in Real Red ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Layered die cut poinsettias make the prettiest Christmas cards. But they can also be used for holiday tags, ornaments, garlands, package decorations and small bouquets. And since the petals come in clusters, they are easy for children to work with in holiday craft projects! So the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle is a definite must have when the catalog opens on Tuesday, Aug 4!
