Embossed Poinsettia

Today's card uses a fun embossed impression technique that Jennifer McGuire did a video on this week. Fun, simple, quick, and pretty!

I started off with a piece of Berry Sorbet card stock, cut to 3 3/4" x 5 1/4". I prepped the paper and my poinsettia die with some anti static powder and then lightly tapped my Versamark ink pad on my die. I carefully placed it on my card stock and ran it through my Cuttlebug with an embossing pad. I heat embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder and then I had the gorgeous letter-pressed look with the embossing and the fine white outlines from the heat embossing, so pretty! I used a white colored pencil to sketch in the veins on the flower petals and then colored over the petals with my wink of stella shimmer pen. I die cut the Merry Christmas out of white cardstock and adhered that over the flower. I added some baker's twine and pearls and then mounted it on a white card base with foam adhesive to finish it off!

Bree fell in love with Little Einsteins this month and she can pick out all sorts of instruments when she listens to classical music like Oboes and Cellos. (although she still won't say Emma's name and insists on calling her Bah-ha...) Her new favorite instrument of the day is Cymbals. She doesn;t have cymbals but that sure didn't stop her from playing them. She's decided that the play lunchmeat and cheese from her kitchen (which was actually my play lunchmeat and cheese from my kitchen set when I was a kid...) are her cymbals. It's kind of hilarious to watch her marching around the house beating her two plastic slices of swiss cheese together and asking me to sing along (apparently she prefers the 1812 overture when she plays the cymbals... who knew?) Parenting is magical :)

Have a great day!
