I am excited to share my card with you today!! Peaceful Poinsettias is such an elegant set! It gives you options for both open line and solid stamping to create beautiful layered poinsettias along with heartfelt sentiments. On my card today I used the opened line stamps and colored with Copic Markers. But I think the solid stamps, along with the coordinating dies would be perfect for a card that you could mass produce. The Poinsettia Taylored Die Set is a set of five dies, so easy to use, and such a beautiful effect!

My papers and ribbon are from the new Holiday Wonder Project Pantry Kit.

The Holiday Wonder Project Pantry Basic Recipe Kit is $11.95 and includes:
Authentique Wonder 6x6 pad
10 sheets of 8.5" x 11" cardstock in coordinating colors
6 yards of ribbon (2 yards each of 3 different styles)

Optional Spice it Up Ingredients (choose any or all) are:6 yards of ribbon (2 yards each of 3 different styles)
Optional Spice it Up Ingredients (choose any or all) are:
  • Decorative Brad Mix
  • Red/Green Paper Roses
  • Christmas Glitter Assortment
  • Red Pearls
  • Coordinating Copic Markers
  • Additional Cardstock Pack
  • Additional Ribbon Bundle
On my card I added twine, gold rhinestones from Taylors Multi-color Twinkles, stitching, and one of the beautiful sentiments from the stamp set. The scalloped border is done with TE Medium Scallop Border die.

Here is a close up of the Poinsettia. You can see how I have four different layers, three different size flowers and the center of the flower. I think it is just SO pretty!

On the inside I stamped another great sentiment, perfect for the inside of a card and another Poinsettia. Here you can see the solid stamp poinsettia. 

Thanks for stopping by! I will back tomorrow with another new stamp preview.  Be sure to stop by all the designers blogs today for lots more inspiration!
