Merry & Bright




Happy Hump Day Peeps!!

Today's card share is another try at vintage for me. I first saw a poinsettia made with one of the leaves in the French Foliage stamp set Here on Connie Babbert's blog, yes the same lady who inspired yesterday's pumpkin. She is going to think I am stalking her, but I do love her blog, she has amazing talent.

I made my poinsettia just like she did, but I did make a different card than hers. I wanted to try my hand at vintage again, something I am struggling with, but I do like this one. The base of the card is Crumb Cake Card stock and I followed that with a layer or Cherry Cobbler card stock. I then used another layer of crumb cake that I embossed with the vintage wall embossing folder. I trimmed off the bottom and added a plain strip of crumb cake and stamped the sentiment from the Bright Christmas set. I used Cherry Cobbler ink. I added some ribbon and a bow with the cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon. I then added a vintage brad to the bow center. I also sponged the base card and the top layer of crumb cake card stock with crumb cake ink.

I added three sticky pearls, that I had colored with my yellow copic marker Y15, to the center of my poinsettia and the flower is added to the card base with some foam tape.

Well, that is all from me today, Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
