For my card I wanted to finally use my Papertrey Ink Year of the flowers: Poinsettia stamp set. I usually lean towards more cutesy type images, but I thought this was just such a pretty flower that can be used in so many different ways. I used a sketch found in Paper Crafts November/ December 2013 Issue and paired it with Echo Park's This & That Christmas papers from last year.
I stamped the poinsettia twice, fussy cutting one smaller than the other and layered them with foam tape in between. Afterward I inked the center with a Signo Uniball gold gel pen. It was such a fast way to dress up the center and has a really pretty metallic shine in person.
While I was on a poinsettia kick, I thought I would try another Hero Arts stamp for a completely different look on a little gift tag. To create my tag I stamped the poinsettia stamp with VersaMark clear watermark ink and heat set it with white embossing powder. To fill in the spaces around the flowers I used a white gel pen to draw in little random trios of dots. I finished off my tag with a ribbon and bakers twine bow, with red stickles added to the poinsettia centers.
