Hero Arts - Merry Christmas Poinsettia





Hello and Happy Sunday!  How is your weekend going?  We went to a potluck luncheon yesterday, we brought 2 stockpots full of thai chicken curry.  Today I'm sharing a holiday design.  I guess I should get cracking on those cards for this year, eh?

The focal point is the Hero Arts Antique Poinsettia.  I stamped it out a couple of times and did some fussy cutting.


I stamped it on both a panel from the Foliage Mix Layering Papers and a panel from the Blush Mix Layering Papers.  I then colored over it with a darker shade of green and a darker shade of red marker.  I used my Zig Clean Color Markers.  I blended in the color with my fingers.

Isn't the Christmas Poster Background fun?  I stamped it in Soft Brown on a panel from the Earth Mix Layering Paper pack.  I watered down a drop of Delicata Gold refill with water and splattered in on top.


I finished off my card with the Merry Christmas Banner that I heat embossed in gold on a panel of vellum that I had in my stash.

This card was inspired by The Card Concept:


I was of course, inspired by the poinsettias + colors.  The dining room table inspired the earth panel in my design.

This is just stunning, Amy!! I love the touches of gold you added via the sentiment and on the background. The Christmas poster background is so perfect too (added to my wish list!). I spent some time yesterday making some Christmas cards myself (look for them on IG later today) and plan to make more today. Your thai chicken curry would be perfect for the weather we have had here lately as it feels like mid-January! I made matzo ball soup on Friday, homemade spaghetti sauce yesterday and will probably make stew today.

amy, I fall short of your fab fussy-cutting skills, but can see it would be made easier if not faced with the dreaded white space... in other words, how smart to stamp on colored cardstock! LOve the background!
