Join me for a little two-step stamping today with Watercolor Winter Gold embossed for Christmas!
Stampin' Up! Watercolor Winter
Again the Studio stamp drawers are open to my Holiday Stamp collection and I've reached for this pretty poinsettia from Stampin' Up! called Watercolor Winter. I think poinsettias are so pretty and thought I would try to make a pink version in todays card. Have a closer look!
I love plant life. And with two cats and a dog in the house I don't have live plants anymore! Poinsettias for the Holidays are just gorgeous and look so pretty on my piano in the living room. (however poisonous to cats I hear!)
But I can enjoy whipping up some pretty Christmas Cards with this set fairly quickly. In a Whisper White Apothecary Label I've inked two Pink Pirouette poinsettias and one Pear Pizzaz pine needle. I like to use my Stamp-a-ma-jig for best placement with my texture stamp, my second layer of the poinsettia you see here inked in Versa Mark and heat embossed in gold. Pretty!
I've stamped and paper snipped the pine cone and added it with a dimensional. Nothing terribly difficult here, just pretty layers of card stock and this pink plaid designer paper found in my retired Letters To Santa. Happy Christmas is a sentiment from More Merry Messages. I think they say "Happy Christmas" in Europe more frequently than in the States. Maybe some of our Blogger friends can confirm!
I hope I've encouraged you to get out your stamps. Ink them up and start those lists! I don't want to have to remind you how many days til' Christmas but you should have your cards in the mail for December 1st. Let me know how I can be of help!
