Poinsettia Ribbon cu IMG0398
Weekly-Favorite best-of-2016-scs-smaller
A big congrats to Rita, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! Wow, does she have a BIG gallery & so many beautiful things to see. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case (copy & share everything!). I kept the flower theme & general layout, but I moved the vertical band to the other side, used different dies, different colors & made mine a Christmas card. I also realized when I went to link to Rita’s card, that she had cased a card of Kittie’s, lol. So I guess this is a case of a case!

For my card, I started w/ a large white die cut panel & narrower dot border die cut white linen panel. On the larger one, I sponged the red & red-orange inks from the bottom left corner up & out for a little ways, letting it kind of trail off at the ends, then I attached the dot border linen panel on top. I die cut the poinsettia ribbon & larger grosgrain ribbons along w/ the wider leaf poinsettia out of the same linen but I sponged the red inks on the big poinsettia & the wider ribbon.   Poinsettia Ribbon xcu09534
The Merry part of the greeting was also die cut & sponged. For the center of the poinsettia, I used a frosted flatback resin’s very sparkly & looks like cut glass. It was clear but I dotted it all over w/ a lipstick orange Copic marker.

I’m adding this to the Simon Says Monday Challenge – Red, White &/or Blue.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Christmas Poinsettia Quilt cu 08908
Today’s Sketch Challenge (SC590) on Splitcoast is an easy one w/ lots of possibilities. I thought I’d use this fabulous Dresden Quilt die along w/ the poinsettias dies to get an early start on some Christmas cards.

I die cut the quilt 3 in white, one in pine green & one in a sheet of the Cozy Quilt paper. After piecing them all together, I attached to a white base die cut w/ the Double Stitched Rectangles, then a larger pine green layer.

The poinsettia was die cut using the Peaceful Poinsettias & Merry Mosaics dies & I used a stylus to add a little shape to them before attaching in the center of my quilt. The die cut Merry was added underneath w/ the Christmas attached to a large bow & added below.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Merry Poinsettia Wreath cu redo 07840
Today we’re taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs November release! There are some really fabulous dies & images this month & they work so well with the previous Christmas releases.  Merry Poinsettias retake07870
For my Christmas wreath card, I die cut the large dp layer & the white layer. After edging the white layer w/ a gold paint pen, I attached them together. For the wreath, I die cut a Doily out of white along w/ some Peaceful Poinsettias & Merry Mosaics. I also die cut the two poinsettias out of the same dp I used for the large layer. I used a small circle die for the gold poinsettia centers & I tucked in a few gold branches on the right I die cut using one of the Lovely Leaves dies & a couple of Pinecones on top. I tucked a white die cut Windowsill Candle die cut into the center of the wreath.

After die cutting one large & one medium bow out of the brushed gold c/s, I though the medium was a tad too small but the bow part looked super on top of the large bow. I also die cut one gold Merry & 3 heavy white Merrys then stacked them together for more dimension.
