This Poinsettia Pattern card is one of my favorites from the catalog, in person it really shimmers with all of the glitter used to make the pattern.  Here's how my card was made;

1. Rub glycerin soap on the back of the Poinsettia Pattern stencil and place it on top of Double Sided Mouning Tape that has been cut diagonally.
2. Sprinkle with Red Micro Fine Glitter, rub in and shake off excess. Remove stencil and sprinkle with Crystal Micro Glitter, rub in and shake off excess.
3. Glue glittered piece to a white panel and line with a thin strip of washi tape.
4. Stencil one of the poinsettias on the white panel with red ink. Once dry over stamp using the Merry Scroll and black ink, emboss with clear.
5.
Add Red Dot Sparklers, mount to a black panel and glue onto a red card.

Wedding & Anniversary Gift Caddy


Now's the season for weddings and anniversaries, this little caddy would be perfect for a sweet surprise to give to that special someone.  I found the easy to follow directions on how to make the box on the Fancy Pants Designs blog.  I have also made these caddies for Christmas, Easter and Birthdays, the possibilities are endless!

Here is how the caddy was made using stamps and embossing powders from Stampendous.  The larger hearts were diecut with Spellbinders dies from kraft colored corrugated paper. The hearts were rubbed with VersaMark ink and embossed with Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel.  The tag was stamped with the Eiffel Tower Perfectly Clear Set with Tea Dye Distress ink and the key was stenciled over this with pink ink. The sentiment from Love Always Perfectly Clear Set was stamped with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink and embossed with clear. Everything was glued together with 3 in 1 Glue from Beacon Adhesives.
