Poinsettia fun

I've been having fun with my new Poinsettia stamp and my patterned papers.  Here are a few more I've done.





I used some cream shimmer card bases and embossed the Poinsettia with Liquid Platinum powder.  I fussy cut them out.  Then using the shimmer bases, Patterned Paper and a variety of sentiments, I made this set of cards.   All nice and CAS.  Just love this stamp.

And one final card today.... I have an Indian friend at work so I made her a Diwali card.


Using yellow and orange distress inks.  The stamps were stamps with Spiced Marmalade distress ink. The Hero Arts sentiment is stamped in red ink and the die cut letters are from a Mama Elephant set.  Finished with some sequins.   This card was inspired by my friend Isha.    Happy Diwali to all my Indian friends.

I like how you've made two cards that are similar, but not the exact same. I'm going to have to try that little trick because I'm starting to feel the Christmas card worry already! :)
Thank you, sweet friend, for your lovely comment on my blog. Life is too short and I am overwhelmed by the kindness of others - including you!

Dawn you have really made that poinsettia stamp sing the way you have used it - those are stunning cards. Love your colour use and the sequins on the Diwali card too.
