Rustic Poinsettia Tag

Today I want to share a tag I made for this week's challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such: Christmas Tags.

I used a lovely pre-printed tag from Fancy Pants Designs' Burlaps and Bouquets collection. I picked the burned red and beige from the tag and added green as a third color, to create a nice, earthy combination. I used beige cardstock for the die cuts entirely and colored them with ink afterwards, that way I could have a hint of beige everywhere.


Main Supplies
Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia
Spellbinders New Fancy Label Tags One
Mini Ink Blending Tool
1/2" Scor-Tape 
Baby Pearls - LeCreme 

I die cut two small poinsettias, and cut some petals from a smaller flower for the leaves too, since the original leaf die was too large to fit the small tag. I colored the poinsettias with Barn Door distress ink and the leaves with Peeled Paint distress ink.

I die cut two coordinating labels with the new Spellbinders Fancy Label Tags One. I stenciled the labels with Peeled Paint distress ink, but I applied much less ink to the smaller one. Finally I stamped a sentiment from the new Our Daily Bread Designs' Silk Stars stamp set using Crafter's Ink in Bark. Half a dozen Baby Pearls finished the design, giving the flowers a delicate touch to contrast their rustic look!

I love how the tag turned out. It will certainly be added to a Christmas gift this year!

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:




I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …
