White Poinsettia

Good morning all!  A few more days of Christmas at the moment.  I absolutely love this poinsettia die template.  I was so excited that I was able to use it to make more samples.  It is my all time favourite Christmas die by far.  I just could not resist making a huge white poinsettia covered in clear micro beads.  It just looks so elegant to me and so simple to create.  I just covered a piece of white card with one of our self adhesive sticky sheets.  I laid out all of the poinsettia dies on it and cut them out.  Remember, do not emboss when using these sheets, it will cause the backing paper to break and you won't be able to peel it off easily.  I cut the large "leaf" about five extra times so I could use it to increase the size of my poinsettia.  I peeled all the backing paper off and dipped each die cut in my clear micro beads.  I bent the petals a bit then glued the pieces together to form my flower.  I added a large single half pearl to the centre.  For the background, I stamped my sentiment first on my gold card using clear Perfect Medium and embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer True White embossing powder.  I scored a line above it and used an embossing folder (Constellations by Couture Creations) for that area above the line.

I tied a large bow using the champagne coloured silky crush ribbon, leaving one of the tails quite long.  I glued the bow on to the card underneath my poinsettia and curled the long end and secured it with a glue dot at the top of the card.  I added some tiny pearl strands from my craft stash as an accent peeking out from the beaded leaves.  I double matted the whole card with white card and pierced around the edges.  Do you not just love that poinsettia die!  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue, I love this card and now that I have purchased the Pick of the Day, the ribbons, the embossing folder and more micro beads I am good to go with this one. I thoroughly enjoyed your show and have recorded them to look back on.

Hi Sue, was glued to the TV last night and was impressed by your demos. Poinsettia dies are top of my list as is the Christmas tree, ooooooh I want them all. Look forward to today's shows.

Morning Sue, Another gorgeously elegant card, absolutely beautiful. I ordered the POTD last night, yippeee, then just now tried to order the ribbon and embossing folder and it let me go right to the end and at confirmation told me that these had both sold out and I couldn't buy them, please try to bring more ribbon Sue, I should have ordered at same time as POTD, am so upset at missing them, that will teach me ha ha. Lots of love from Patricia xx

Just been watching you on Ideal World. Love all the dies you were showing this morning especially these pointsettia ones and the bauble tree. A must have this year for my many xmas cards I have to make for family and friends. Todays card is stunning, loving the colour combo. Must dash now or I will be late for work. Must work to buy my extensive list of dies on my wish list, but rather be home crafting.
Have a great crafting day

Sue Parish said...

Hello Sue, Hello Sue - I am both watching you on tv and leaving this comment! You are using mica flakes which I bought (the beautiful tarnished bronze clour) but haven't used yet, so must take note of what youre doing. Can't wait for my new dies to arrive - especially as C&C will send them in a Spellbinders size cardboard box! I have to tell you I have 3 of these boxes all crammed full and I need the 4th one because your new lace dies and a couple of others are on my dining room table waiting for another box to keep them in!
Love today's card, it's just fab, very special.
Have a good day - I know I will - it's raining outside so just perfect for staying indoors with Spellbinders and Sue on tv!

nzillingworth said...

Hi Sue
fab card. Simple but amazing. Love the colours.
A little disappointed with the show as the bungles of dies i have some in each group. Wonder if all dies will be sold separately as would love the christmas tree? I have also just seen the new dies Marvelous rectangles, majestic flower and decorative grand oval 1. Think i am going to have to save hard to get all of them. Best dies yet.

Hi Sue,
Loved the show this afternoon with Loen, she's hilarious. Someone needs to get the girl crafting!
I have loved all your demos today but am rather frustrated that payday isn't until Monday and the pick of the day has gone! Hopefully by then I'll be able to shop for the blockbuster Grand Calibre &... if there's any left!!

Hi again Sue. I absolutely love your cards, but I am so disappointed that you do so many with the micro beads which I just cannot seem to get. My home circumstances prevent me from being able to watch all the C & C programmes so I record them but whenever I try to order the beads they are always 'sold out'!! Can you please tell me where else I can possibly get them. LOL Maureen

Evening Sue, WOW - Been watching and recording C&C over the last 24 hours = loved all the amazing demonstrations.

The Holiday tree and poinsettia dies are now on the list of must haves! Also many thanks for the tissue paper idea - it looks great.

All your cards are fantastic.

Hi Sue,
I have enjoyed watching all your shows and demos. I recorded all your demos so I can re-create your pretty cards. I like when you say 'pretty', You and Leonie always cheers me up. Thanks for this wonderful card, I like it but still not used to white poinsettia. I'll get used to it, I so loved the silky crush ribbons...unfortunately, I missed my chance but I'm sure it will be back. Please can we have more of the new festive embossing folders (Sold Out) and those beautiful huge pearls that you have used...I hope you don't mind me asking where did you buy them? Thanks for reading my comment.
Lots of love,
Aggie x
