A card full of Poinsettias and Joyous Congratulations

Hi, over at Heartfelt Creations this week, I am featuring a very romantic card...using the oh so wonderful Poinsettia collection!


Heartfelt Creations Products and Products carried by Heartfelt Creations:

Other products used: 
Art Anthology Sorbet Dimensional Paint: Vegas Gold, Chocolate. Ranger: Ink-spritzer, Distress ink Peeled Paint marker, Heat gun, Water mister. Diamond stickles. Other: Spellbinders S2-082 Sentiments one. SUP A4 natural white card stock. Gold pearl beads x 15. Versa-mark. 

Instructions: This step card measures 21 cm x 14.8 cm.
To make the step card base, cut from the SUP card stock 21 cm x 29.8 cm. Fold in half, cut. On the 29.8 cm length, 5 cm from the edge, cutting from 5 cm to the last 5cm.  This will make the side step 5 cm wide. The valley will be 2.5 cm. Taking the SUP card stock die cut the matting using the Cut Mat Create die sets. Stamp the Poinsettias with the gold embossing powder. Die cut the flower shapes using the matching dies. Once you have colored the flowers with the Art Anthology medium, shape and ball with the deluxe Flower Shaping kit and water mister. When dry, adhere the pearls to the Poinsettia centers. 

Cut the sentiment using the sentiment die. Cut 2 of the heart frames using the Timeless Amour die set. 

Once you have done all this you can arrange the flowers and hearts on the card front, to see where you will want the leaf cut outs to be. Do not adhere yet! Remove the arrangement while holding the dies in place. Make the die cuts. Gold emboss stamp the Joyous sentiment, masking the ‘a’ from the image. 

Adhere all the matting layers together with the 3d foam squares. You can now rearrange and adhere the flowers, hearts and sentiment with glue. Tuck the swirls that have been cut from the matting behind and in-between the flowers. Apply the stickles to the inside heart frame and the die cut sentiment. To finish, use the ink spritzer and distress marker to spray ink a little on the back ground.

See how these Poinsettias are so wonderful! They change with the medium used and colours chosen.
A shame in real life these are only around at a certain time of year....thats why you need to get the stamp and die sets so you can make have them all year round....LOL.
I hope you enjoyed your visit today...till my next post...have a scrappy inky day,
Inky hugs to you...sussipoppins
