May your Holidays be Filled with Laughter, Love & Joy!

Hello, creative friends! Julie here today. I love it when I have an excuse to play with my artsy supplies!  This time, I did some die cutting, stamping, and of course, painting.

I started out cutting out a bunch of poinsettia-like looking flowers with my Big Shot, using watercolor paper.  Here's what they looked like:
Some of them had a stamp set to match, so I stamped them before I die cut them.  It's easier to line everything up that way. Then, I started painting them, using colors that would make them look like a poinsettia.  Here's what they looked like painted:

I used Garnet (one of December's sale colors!), Evergreen (also on sale at 33% off!), and Green Olive.

Then, it was time to put it all together.  Here's what I created with these flowers:

This 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch card was made for the friend who gave me those two beautiful stick pins.  She made me a whole bunch of beautiful beaded stick pins just like these two.  I thought the least I could do was return the favor with a card.
When assembling this card, I used the rule of threes, using 3 poinsettias clusters, 3 leaves, and even 3 red rhinestones.
Here's a close up of the poinsettias and beaded stick pins...

Thanks for visiting today! May your holidays truly be filled with laughter, love & joy!
