Poinsettia petals

Good Morning Ladies,
Looks like we had more rain overnight. I did not hear it this time. Or I just had a really good nights sleep. I do feel quite rested this morning.
I had fun creating yesterday and here is one of the cards I created....

I created this card using the Poinsettia Petals Pre-Cut set from Heartfelt Creations and a Spellbinders die. I stamped the petals using memento ink on red cardstock and green glitter cardstock. I then cut them out. I created the poinsettia by placing and gluing the petals on top of the spellbinders die cut. This made a great base for this flower. For the center of the flower I sprinkled diamond dust in the center. I colorized the diamond dust with butterscotch alcohol ink. It took just a drop or two. I then glued a jingle bell into the center of the diamond dust. This was all an experiment with the alcohol ink but worked great. I used a Martha Stewart punch to punch the sides of 3 layers of cardstock and dsp. I used red cardstock for the base of the card front. The dsp is from a My Minds Eye christmas stack. To finish this card off I added a green glittery lace.
The Poinsettia Petals set and the spellbinder die can be purchased at
She also has an array of the Martha Stewart punches. Let me just say if you want dies check out Joans.
This card was built piece by piece and I had no idea what I was going to come out with...but it is all good.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

What a beautiful poinsettia, Mrs. Swandog! I love the bright colors and how you gave them that terrific 3D effect! It is positively delightful!
