One Stamp, 6 different ways. Pt4

Hey Blogland. Here we go with project 4 using just one stamp...Something a little more "traditionally Christmas"!For this project, after stamping, colouring and glazing I chose to cut the image out using Labels Four Small,matting and layering with Labels Four.What could be more Christmassy than a few Poinsettia's? I punch out several images in Green and Red card stock using the Martha Stewart Medium Pop Up Water Lily Punch (M42-20008).Layered them togetherand adding a gem in the centre of each for some Christmas Bling!!I also punched out some leaves using the Martha Stewart Pine Branch punch,adding them to the Poinsettias.For my base card, I cut a shape using a die from the Grand Labels Four Spellbinders set. Making sure that the cutting edge on the left of the die hung over the spine of the folded card so it kept the card together...I then added my stamped imageand positioned the Poinsettia's around the top and bottom edges of the image..It was as I was about to take my final photo that I realised that the card would not stand up on the point created by the die, so rather than dismantle the card and mount it onto a traditional A5 card, I decided to chop the points off!! I think it still works? I guess the straight edge at the bottom ties in with the straight edge on the left, as the pointed edge at the top ties in with the pointed edge on the right!! I meant to do that!! Yeah right!!Anyway, there we go.. #4 done.. Two more to go..
Thanks for checking us out, see you soon..


  1. Love the shape of the card Andy and you are right - this one does have a more traditional feel to it. Great card.

    Toni :o)

  2. Well it may of been a happy accident but it certainly doesn't detract from the beauty of it. Have really enjoyed this mini series, it has given me lots of idea's, so thank you Andy.
