Peaceful Poinsettia

My name is Susan Horr and I am a Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalog addict.  There are so many beautiful stamp sets in this catalog that I knew I was in trouble the first time I saw it.  Normally I make a bunch of the same card to send out for Christmas but this year I may be sending different designs to different people.

The stamp set Peaceful Poinsettia was on my list the second I saw it.  It has beautiful matching dies called Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits and you an save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  The dies are gorgeous.  Not only do they cut out some of the stamp designs, they also have extra ones.  The font in this set is beautiful and very elegant.

To make this card I first stamped the long poinsettia die twice ~ once in Real Red and once in Shaded Spruce.  Then I cut them apart and colored them using my Stampin’   Blends in Real Red and Shaded Spruce too.  The sentiments on this card are from the stamp set called Merry Christmas to All.  This is a great for sentiments because many of the words are separate so you can say most anything.  They are Photopolymer so they are easy to line up.  The Designer Series Paper  Series Paper is called Under The Mistletoe.

Peaceful Poinsettia

This is the second card we made at our monthly stamp club.  It uses the stamp set called Peaceful Poinsettia.  This stamp set has matching dies called Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits.  The die set is great because it cuts out some of the images in the stamp set but it also cuts out different shapes such as a beautiful Poinsettia outline and inside.  It is gorgeous.  You can see what I mean HERE.

I did things a little differently with this card.  I let them choose which way they wanted to use the die.  One way uses the die as you normally would.  It cuts out the image using your Big Shot.  The other way is to use the Big Shot Embossing Mat so it only leaves an impression of the design without cutting it out.  You can see the difference in the photos below.

Can you see how the first one cuts out the image and the second photo embosses the image?  Honestly, I don’t know which one I like better.  What do you think?

A Sketch Stamp Off Challenge

Hello everyone!  Today is another day for a BS & J Productions Stamp Off Challenge.  This week we have a sketch challenge.

Here is my card:

I decided to use new products from the 2018 Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalog.  There are actually three new products on this card.  The first is the Poinsettia.  This was made using the new Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits Dies.  I love how the flower is made up of two different dies.  One is the outline die which I cut out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the other is the detail on the Poinsettia which is in Whisper White.  Then I just adhered them on top of each other using Mulitpurpose Glue.

The sentiment is from the new stamp set called Merry Christmas To All.  This stamp set has matching dies which I just adore called Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies.  I didn’t use them on this card but if you buy the stamp set and the dies in a Bundle you can save 10%.  I stamped this greeting in Shaded Spruce.

Last but not least is the Designer Series Paper I used.  This is also in the Holiday Catalog and is called Festive Farmhouse.  It is full of different plaids and stripes.

Now let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie made.  I am sure we will love what they do!
