Welcome to another Global Creative INKspirations blog hop. This month we are looking at new products from the upcoming August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue. As demonstrators we are lucky to be able to pre-order anything we want from this catalogue. It is primarily holiday (Christmas) themed but has some lovely other products too. When I first saw the catalogue was I was immediately drawn to the Poinsettia Place Suite. Today I share my first Christmas Card for the year (well it could also be used for Christmas in July) using the Poinsettia Petals Bundle:

- Card Base: Real Red
- Card Front: Gold Brushed Metallic Cardstock (13.6 x 9.3 cm) and Whisper White (13.3 x 9 cm)
- Card Insert: Whisper White (14.3 x 10 cm)
- To create the poinsettia flower I stamped on Fluid 100 Watercolour paper in Real Red one small poinsettia flower, one medium, two large from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set. Another large poinsettia flower in Shaded Spruce.
- Using the stamped images as a guide I did some loose watercolouring. I layered Real Red (or Shaded Spruce) heat setting it with a Heat Tool. On one of the large Real Red poinsettias I added some Shaded Spruce to the tips). I repeated this process with the Shaded Spruce flower too (used to make leaves).
- Once dry I stamped over the top using the same stamps but using Versamark ink and heat embossed using Gold Stampin’ Embossing Powder. TIP: You can use your Stamparatus to stamp this part as you can still see the original stamping underneath.
- Die cut the flowers using Poinsettia Dies
- Layer the flower starting with the green flower at the bottom then the red flower with the green tips and then the large, medium finishing with the small red flower.
- Add to card front and add some sprigs cut from the coordinating die set Poinsettia Dies. Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere the sprigs. Trim off the edges that hang over.
- Heat emboss in gold the sentiment.
This is what the watercolouring looked like before I added the Gold Heat Embossing. I did create more flowers than I needed for this card.
To complete the project I stamped the large poinsettia flower on the card insert and the envelope. I stamped it once and then masked and stamped again to create the fuller looking poinsettia.
I highly recommend you check out Angie’s blog post for some creative INKspiration.
