Focal Friday ~ Poinsettia Petals Bundle

Welcome back friend,

Today I have an exciting post. I am showcasing a non traditional look at the Poinsettia Petals Bundle from the holiday catalog. There is SO MUCH you can do with this set that I am afraid I do not have enough time before the holidays to even tap into all the ideas running through my mind. My design idea here came from this photo I took a local grocery store where my son works. The beautiful peachy look was hard to recreate but as I played I really fell in love with these dies. Lets take a look at the focal image together…..

Here is my project. I have used the dies from the Poinsettia Petals bundle (#155148) along with the beautiful Plush Poinsettia Specialty Papers (#153486). This set is being carried over into the new 2021/22 Annual catalog so I WILL be using those set in future posts. I want to color the poinsettias with blends, do a sample using the double stamping technique, I would also like to show you how to make 3D flowers with this bundle. Like I said I a not even scratching the surface but I promise to use it again for sure in the future. Even though this bundle is being carried over, it will not be at the 10% bundle saving price so make sure you grab you bundle now to save with that bundle pricing.

This is a MUST MUST MUST have bundle!!!! I promise you!It is so versatile!

I have a little trick for you when you are trying to make these. What I did was use a piece of tape to attach the embossing portion of the die so that it cuts and embosses at the same time. If you’re stamping and cutting the poinsettias you will then take them apart and use just the edge die to cut out the stamps. I hope this explanation makes sense. You could also stamp tone on tone with the stamp set (like maybe Cherry Cobbler ink on Real Red paper) then you could cut it out AND add the embossing in as well. Like I said the possibilities are endless!!!


You can see by these close up photos I have used a dauber and Mango Melody to ink the petals then I added Wink of Stella along with the Gilded Gems (#1152478) to the centers.

For the card base I used Pumpkin Pie Card stock. The sentiment was created using the “Lovely Labels Pick A Punch” and is also stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink. The gold accent foliage was cut with the “Gold Foil Sheets” and lastly I used the Bumblebee Gingham ribbon. With the mixture of the Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, and Bumblebee it really gave it a peachy feel. Focal Friday’s are suppose to challenge us right?
