Happy Little Stampers Blog Hop

Today I’m joining in Happy Little Stampers Blog Hop showcasing one of their newest stamp sets Christmas Joy.  For this card, I decided to make a simple design that I could duplicate easily. I’ve been busy making cards for the Caring Heart Drive and now I’m going to make some cards for the local nursing home that I take lip balms, lotion, socks and stuffed animals to each year.

For this card, I started off with the standard A2 base in SU Mossy Meadow and then added a 4″ X 5 1/4″ Real red base that I embossed. I then used my new stitched die from Stampin up to cut my circle. I then stamped my poinsetta with SU Black Archival ink. Once my ink had drived I used my Copic Lipstick Red to color in the poinsetta and my Spectrum Noir and Copic to color in the leaves. I added a little Metallic Green thread behind my image and used my clear Wink of Stella to give the poinsetta a little sparkle.
