Poinsettia Petals

 Happy Tuesday! Can you believe it is nearly the end of September??  The weather here has felt more like August the past week or so, but they tell us this is the end of the warmth for a good long time here in Southern Ontario. I'm not sure I'm ready for a long cold winter...it seems like we just had one a couple of months ago ;)

October is typically when I start my holiday crafting and this past weekend I spend some serious quality time with my favourite holiday suite from the August-December Mini, Poinsettia Place. I am SO in love with everything about this suite, so much so that I am launching a brand-new online class that features it!

Now, on to this week's project share...check out this beauty:

There is so much I love about this card, it's hard to know where to start! I used a colour scheme of Poppy Parade, Garden Green and gold, with a hint of Mango Melody. The background panel consists of Poppy Parade card stock, stamped with the poinsettia image in Real Red ink. I then embossed the stamped card stock using the Subtle embossing folder to add just a hint of texture.  

The focal image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then coloured using the Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends combo pack. I used the Dark Mango Melody for the centre of the poinsettia and the berries. The stamped images were die-cut using the coordinating Poinsettia Dies. The DSP panel is from the Poinsettia Place DSP pack and is layered on a brushed gold foil layer that I die-cut using the Ornate Borders dies. The sentiment is heat embossed in gold and die-cut using the Ornate Layers dies. I added some ribbon from the All The Trimmings Combo pack and some Gold Faceted Gems for a little bling. While it doesn't show in the photo, I also added a touch of Wink of Stella to the petals of the Poinsettia.

On the inside I added a Whisper White card stock layer on which I stamped another sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals set and another poinsettia, which I coloured in the same manner as the one on the front. I love adding little touches to the inside of my cards to reflect what is on the front. 
Here is the video in which I demonstrate this card and two others using this gorgeous suite. Measurements for all three projects are included in the video description on my YouTube channel:
