Sparkly Poinsettia Petals Stampin' Up! Card Idea for Christmas 2020

Hey friends.

Today I have a super sparkly card for you using the Poinsettia Petals stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. This would make an awesome 2020 Christmas card! I have also taken advantage of the October Stampin' Up! patterned paper sale by creating a DSP background.

This patterned paper background is one I have used over and over again. Here's the measurements so you can make it yourself.

  • The base card is a standard C6 top folding card
  • The Cherry Cobbler cardstock layer is 10.0cm x 14.3 cm
  • The left side piece of DSP is 13.9cm x 2.7cm
  • The right top side piece is 8.5cm x 2.7cm
  • The right bottom piece is 5.2cm x 2.7cm

The Poinsettia Place DSP is one of the DSP's on sale during October too. You can find it using the links at the end of the post.

For the rest of the card, I stamped the 3 layers of the Poinsettia, and a couple of the leaves in Black Stazon onto Fluid 100 watercolour paper. I then watercoloured in Real Red and Cherry Cobbler. To get the amazing sparkle, I painted all the leaves with my clear Wink of Stella Pen (links at end of post).

My sentiment is from another stamp set called Joy and Peace, as I just wanted a small sentiment. I finished my card off with some gold cord trim and Gilded Gems. I'm really loving this beautiful Poinsettia flower and the dimension you can get by layering it and adding the gorgeous beaded pearl embellishment on top.

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.

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

Ink Blending with Stampin Up Sponge Brayers and reverse watercolour technique with Celebrate Sunflowers

Hey there,

Today I am going to show you how to use Stampin' Up! Spronge Brayers for ink blending to create an ombre background (and they are only great value, $14 for 4 heads and 2 handles). I also have another  technique I am not even sure of the proper name for (if there is even one), but which is simple and hardly needs any supplies for, so I wanted to show you. I'm going to call it reverse watercolouring.

Here's the video tutorial I made to demonstrate this technique and card.

I'm really loving the colour Bumble Bee. It's such a vibrant yellow, but also warm and welcoming.

This image is from the Beautiful Moments stamp set and I have watercoloured using waterpainters and the ink in the ink pad lids. I've used Rococo Rose, Crumb Cake, Highland Heather and Mint Macaron (to pick up the green in the Ornate Garden DSP.

Posted for You Bundle / Stamp Set by Stampin Up. 2020 Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

This is such a great bundle which is really reasonably priced ($54 for the stamp set and punch together). It's a great way to use up little scraps of patterned paper, and you can make mini works of art too.

I embossed the 'Love' image in whote embossing powder onto watercolour paper, and added a watercolour wash of Blushing Bride. When that was dry, I added in some additional colour in a slightly more concentrated shade of Blushing Bride, on the leaves, flower and letters.  The fine water painter in the trio of painters was perfect for this task.

The sentiment and round postage stamp image are included in the Posted for You stamp set and have been stamped in Gray Granite to coordinate with the Peony Garden DSP. The small heart is die cut from the Trio of Tags dies.

You might also spy some cute little embellishments on there. I LOVE these new Elegant Faceted Gems. There are 3 colours in two sizes in the pack: clear, pearlescent white and petal pink. They are the perfect addition to elegant cards as the name implies. I love them so much I just ordered a bunch of these at my shared host code gifts for June customers.
