ID: MC Sept16 - Alcohol Poinsettia - ECD Noel - Blessed By The Season card
size: 4.25"w x 5.5"h 

Created: September 9, 2016

Had a fun day with the gals this past Wednesday, gave them a bunch of that glossy photo paper I spoke of in previous posts and showed them all the different ways I use alcohol inks... Of course that landed me up with a pile more samples that have to be used up....

I'm using an A Way With Words die from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Noel" & also available on Quietfire Design HERE

I'm using a  quote and design element  stamps  from Quietfire Design  

("Blessed Is The Season..."); ("Merry Christmas Poinsettia" 2pce set)


I scored and folded my cream toned  card. Embossed it with Couture Creations "Mini Poinsettia" embossing folder. Hit the high points very lightly with a red sponge. Adhered a piece of scrap brown cardstock along the right side

Created my alcohol background - inking my felt (Poppyfield, Flamingo and Gold Mixative) and a touch of blending solution, pouncing until leased with the look... Die cut with Marianne Designs "Poinsettia". Tooled the petals using a piece of tracing paper on top of my alcohol flowers to protect the surface. Die cut the centers from some yellow colored cardstock. Adhered the parts together then onto my card front adding some die cut leaves from another piece of alcohol decorated paper. Added a medium sized yellow/greenish toned pearl in the center.

Die cut the Noel red toned cardstock.

On the Inside: Inked the poinsettia stamp with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Painted with some Distress pads on an acrylic block ("Candy Apple" and "Fired Brick"). Painted the center with Mustard Seed.

Stamped the quote with the black and clear embossed.
