Watercoloured Poinsettia 2020 Slimline Christmas Card using Stampin Up Poinsettia Petals

Hello crafty friends. Today I have another slimline card for you, a 2020 Christmas card using Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle from the 2020 Stampin' Up! August to December Mini Catalogue. The whole Poinsettia Place Suite is so pretty!

Stampin Up Watercoloured Poinsettia Petals 2020 Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For my card, I started with a 21cm x 10cm slimline Crumb Cake card base and I added a layer of the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper. This has a luscious flocked design on vellum and is so pretty, plus adds great texture. I've added more texture by looping some Braided Linen Trim below where I planned for my flower and greeting to go.

To create my flower, I gold embossed the three different sized poinsettia's from the Poinsettia Petal stamp set onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper (links below). I then spritzed with water and used then added watery ink from the lid of my ink pad (created this by dropping a couple of drops of water into the ink residue in the lid - just make sure you wipe with a paper towel when finished so you don't dilute your ink pad). Becuae the watercolor paper is wet, the colour quickly spreads and you get a random distribution of the colour. I love this messy watercolour look. I used tw colours on the flower, Real Red and Cherry Cobbler.

I layered these together with a Dimensional between each layer and the gorgeous Beaded Pearls (links below) as the flower centre.

Here's a closer look at the gorgeous Beaded Pearl flower centres. You get 18 pieces in a pack and they are approximately 1.3cm wide.

Love how all the layers look when they are put together.

Slimline cards are fun to make. There's a little more real estate to play with, but don't let that scare you.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Peacock with copper embossing

Good morning everyone. Today's share is another take on the Stampin' Up! 2018 Saleabration stamp set Beautiful Peacock. I wanted to get a bit more elaborate with those beautiful plumes. Don't forget you can earn this stamp set free during Saleabration (or other choices instead) when you spend $90 during Saleabration. Learn more about Saleabration here.

I've combined Emerald Envy, Powder Pink and Copper Embossing plumes with the main Tranquil Tide stamping of the peacock. I also added in some copper embellishments, which I made by colouring adhesive pearls with the Bronze Stampin Blends alcohol marker.

Here's the colour combination I have used today (in addition to the copper embossing). The Tranquil Tide felt bow embellishment was a perfect finish for this card.

Stampin' Up! Quilted Christmas and Hearts Come Home quick and easy Christmas cards.

We're into the home stretch for Christmas cards now, and sometimes you just need some really quick and easy cards. That is what today's post is all about.

The Quilted Christmas Designer Paper was my favourite paper in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. I particularly liked the pages with the triangles, as they reminded me of little trees. I really liked the colours in this paper pack too, as it allowed me to bring some of the softer coordinating colours into my cards.

HOC 25a

You could basically use any ling Christmas greeting you have, but I have used the greeting from the Hearts Come Home stamp set. I hear embossed the greeting in silver, and used silver stars from the Metallic Enamel shapes for the tops of the 'trees'. The cardstock colours I have used on the outer two layers of the card are Pool Party and Blushing bride.

HOC 25b

Here's a closer look at the Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper. There are 48 sheets in the pack, 12 designs with 4 of double sided design. This is the double sided design I used for these cards, which shows the coordinating colours of Blushing Bride, Garden Green, Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, Real Red and Whisper White.
