Stampin Up 2021 Christmas Cards: Poinsettia Petals for Heart of Christmas Week 1
July 05, 2021
I'm excited that our Art with Heart Team Christmas themed blog hop is back for another year. From today right through until mid December, we will be providing Christmas card inspiration for you every Monday night. This year it will also be a true blog hop format, so much easier to navigate and see all the wonderful inspiration.
I'm using one of my favourite stamp sets that carried over to the Stampin Up Australia 2021 Annual Catalogue: Poinsettia Petals, along with the coordinating Poinsettia Dies. I used these two products so much last year and I absolutely love them. I have given them a new life for a 2021 Christmas card, by combining it with some brand new products.
The new products I have used are (links at end of post to take you to these products in the online store):
- Soft Succulent cardstock (one of the new 2021-23 Stampin' Up' InColors) as the base.
- The gorgeous new Tidings of Christmas DSP from the Annual Catalogue. This paper is 15% off right now in our DSP sale.
- Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper (I have used the gold on this project) cut with the Encircled in Beauty Dies for the piece underneath the Poinsettia
- Evening Evergreen Ink to stamp the greeting onto the Soft Succulent cardstock.
The poinsettia layers are embossed in gold onto Shimmery White cardstock and layered together, and over the gold decorative circle, with Dimensionals. I have added in some foliage cut with the Poinsettia Dies from Soft Succulant cardstock. To finish my card off I added in some Champagne Rhinestones which were the perfect colour for my project.
Here's a reminder of how gorgeous the Poinsettia Petals stamp set and Poinsettia Dies are.
Now it's time to check out who's next opn our Christmas blog hop. Next up we have the very creative Vicki Boucher. I'm sure you will love Vicki's creation.

You can find all of the products I used today using the links at the end of post.
Thanks for checking out week one of the Art with Heart Team Heart of Christmas for 2021. I'm looking forward to creating lots more Christmas cards for inspiration, in the weeks to come.
See you again soon,
Oh, how pretty! The layering is gorgeous! I will have to go take another look at that DSP, as I adore the mix of blues and greens in the DSP on the bottom of your card.

Gold and Soft Succulent look so nice together. I really like how you've layered the elements under the poinsettia, Claire.

That dark blue DSP is so striking and with the gold metallic specialty paper, creates a rich and gorgeous Christmas card.

Oh I do love how you have used that DSP effectively and the combo of Soft Succulent and gold is very soft and beautiful I really love those Encircled dies. Might just have to have a closer look at them!
