Pointsettia with BLING


Well the boys are at Grandma and Grandpa's this week. Rick and I dropped them off yesterday. I will miss them, but it is so nice being able to spend time with hubby.

We actually went shopping yesterday, he even suggested that we visit AC Moore and the BIG Joann. So, I picked up this poinsettia stamp. I have been trying not to buy non-SU! stamps. This one was calling out my name, and I had a 40% off coupon -- so I HAD to buy it right?

I really wish you could see the bling on this card. I embossed the entire image, and the card front too. I water colored the flower with Purely Pomegranate and Groovy Guava. The leaves are Wild Wasabi, with a little Always Artichoke for dimension. I love the way the flower turned out, I just need to work on a better layout for the card.

Stamps: Pointsettia (LSS), Fine Lace BG Inks: Purely Pomegranate, Groovy Guava, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Always Artichoke, Black Staz on Paper: Groovy Guava, Whisper White, Basic Black Extras: Heat gun, Iridescent Ice EP, Vintage Brads, Paint brush, Ticket Corner and Corner Rounder punches, dimensionals

Whoa! Look at how beautifully this card sparkles! So pretty. And why NOT buy non-SU stamps? *grin* There is always room for diversity, right?

This is stunning Corie! I've been trying to do the same thing (not by non-SU! stamps) and sometimes it's really, really hard!!
