Peaceful Poinsettias


 Hello friends!  I hope you are doing well!  I have been snowed under this week, but I finally got a card made today to share with you here.  I used the newly released Peaceful Poinsettias from ODBD, as well as a past release, Worship the Lord.    I cut and embossed  three sets of the poinsettia dies from white card stock, sponged with Brilliance Platinum Planet Pigment ink, spritzed with water and then began shaping them with an embossing stylus on an embossing pad.  I loved the shimmer of the platinum ink.  I stamped the word Rejoice from the Worship the Lord set and embossed it with a soft goldis color of embossing powder, but there is no name on the bottle so I can't tell you what it is.  I cut that panel with a Spellbinders Fancy Tags 2 die from white cs.  For my base panel, I used a T Holtz embossing folder (Sizzix) and rubbed the negative side of the folder with the same Brilliance ink, then ran it through my grand calibur.  I love this effect!  I mounted that on a white base, arranged my poinsettias, added some white flourishes from the  Fancy Foliage Die set, and some tiny pearls.

I am entering this in the current Shining the Light Challenge over on the ODBD Blog.  It's anything goes with ODBD stamps!  Hope you can play along!

That's it for me today.  I'm sorry I'm a little busy at the moment, but I'll do my best to keep some samples coming for you!
