Sorry I've been a bit absent for a while but I'm still a bit under the weather and my motivation is still awol!
However, following on from the amazing Stamp Launch Blog Hop at Happy Little Stampers, we are now ready for the October Christmas Challenge.
I die cut 3 flowers, one in card and two in vellum using the 'Pretty Poinsettia' set from Clearly Besotted, then stamped the solid flower in red ink on the white card for the base. On the large vellum poinsettia, I stamped and embossed the outline flower in white, so the red flower could peep through, and then embossed the smaller solid stamp on the top flower. I curled the vellum flowers before I stacked them together to give a little dimension, and then added a circle of pearls in the centre which I coloured with a Copic marker.
The red panel was cut with a My Favorite Things Blueprints die and the greeting, from Happy Little Stampers Mixed Christmas Sentiments, was stamped and embossed in white. To finish is all off, I covered a plain A2 card with some patterned paper from Papertrey Ink and mounted the panel on it with some fun foam.
and the winner will receive
