Merry Christmas

Hi, Diane with you today!

I have been enjoying making my Christmas cards this year. So many beautiful dies and stamps to work with. The only problem is choosing which ones!

I saw this brand  new, just released stamp set from JustRite, called Multi-Step Poinsettia and knew it would be fun to work with!

The set comes with a number beside each stamp, making it easy for you to stamp by number, basically allowing you a fool proof layering of stamps.

I stamped myself a template of sorts first, as I wanted to make sure when I stamped it on card stock, I had it in the proper arrangement of top of the flower and the bottom. Now I can just look at my sample and know which is up and which is down I hope this makes sense, but I just didn't want to stamp the base and then have my flower upside down.

I stamped the Poinsettia in two different colors of reds, and the leaves and veins in two colors of greens. A Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen was used to give a bit of sparkle to the flower veins.

The background paper is from Authentique Believe 6" x 6" paper pad.

I die cut the pattern you see on white card stock using the Memory Box Distressed Windham Collage die.

The sentiment is from the same Poinsettia set, stamped in VersaMark, then embossed with Ranger Embossing Tinsel.

A bit of sparkle was added with Silver Rock Candy.
