My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

SSS27 - Christmas Poinsettias






Well, it's Wednesday and time for some Sweet 'n Sassy Stamp Artwork using the Sweet Stop Sketch 27.

Today I used the Christmas Poinsettias Stamp Set designed by our very talented Chris Dickinson. This is a gorgeous stamp set. So if you like poinsettias, you'd better make you way on over to Sweet & Sassy Stamps and pick up this set before they are all gone. There are only 6 sets left in stock.

What I really like about these stamps is that you can use them for any occasion cards throughout the entire winter months. There are Christmas sayings with it, but as you see, I did not use any with my card.

The paper is Basic Grey, Eskimo Kisses.  The images were stamped three times, colored with Copic Markers and mounted for a 3D affect. I used yellow glitter for the tiny flowers of the poinsettia, although it doesn't show up very well in the picture.

The outside of the card is hand stitched with matching embroidery floss.
