Poinsettias galore.

Poinsettias always say Christmas to me.  I have a number of Poinsettia stamps.... and here I am to share a few with you.

My first two cards use a Penny Black Poinsettia.  The first card is a CASE of the card that was back of the stamp packaging.

The background is sponged with distress ink and then overstamped with the same ink and the wreath that is in the set.  The poinsettia was inked and clear embossed before being coloured with Zig markers and then  fussy cut and put onto a Spellbinders die cut label. The sentiment was embossed with Platinum embossing powder.  Finished with a twine bow and a pearl.  Entering into the Anything Christmas at Penny Black and More

For my second card I did a similar card.

The poinsettia was coloured with watered down Zig markers.  The gold label was a RAK that came with my CCC card this month from Christi.  The gold die cut circles behind it are a Simon Says Stamp die.  The sentiment is from Kaisercraft and is white embossed.

My last card uses a Kaisercraft poinsettia.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I stamped the poinsettia in black ink onto the patterned paper and then stamped once in green ink and twice in black ink onto white card.  I fussy cut out the leaves from the green image and stuck them onto the card.  The next two layers were coloured with grey Zig marker.  The centre berries were done in a red Zig marker. Added a few dots of white gel pen.

The Christmas card pile is slowly growing.

Hope your weekend was good and managed to get some crafting done.
