Merry Christmas Poinsettia

Hi! Today I have a poinsettia card (ok, two), but I am not sure if I like how they turned out.

SU! Reason for the Season, Holly Berry Happiness, Tin of Cards

I had this idea in my head from a card I had done a while back – but for some reason, this one isn’t turning out the way I hoped it would.  What do you think?  What would you change?  I’m open for ideas.

The outline of the poinsettia was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink, then I stamped the flower petals in Real Red and finally the leaves in Garden Green.  The sentiment is from the same set.  The holly on the right card is from the Holly Berry Happiness set.  The swirls are from the Tin of Cards stamp set.

I’ll keep playing with it and hope to get some ideas on what else to try.

Christmas Holly

Hi! Today I am playing along with the CAS Colour and Sketches Challenge #197 – a sketch challenge!  CAS stands for Clean and Simple – something I struggle with – so I thought perhaps if I did some of their challenges, it might help my CAS cards look better.

SU! Holly Berry Happiness

I thought the holly would work well for the sketch this week. I love holly and couldn’t resist this bundle from the Holiday Catalog – you get both the stamp set AND the coordinating punch!  My colors are Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Very Vanilla.  I thought a softer white would be better.  Thankfully, we had a frost last night – which was perfect for today’s card!

What do you think?

I also have an exciting announcement!  Today YOU can purchase a sneak peek item from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog!!  A set of stitched framelits are being offered for the month of November!  I LOVE the look and can’t wait to order mine!  AND – to add to it, Stampin’ Up! is offering select coordinating stamp sets for 25% OFF as well!!  How awesome is that!  stitchedframelits
