Stamp Focus: Festive Poinsettia + Video!

by Erum Tasneem

Hello, friends!

Erum here today with three cards featuring the Festive Poinsettia Stamp Set. I also have a video to share for the last card at the end of this post.

Altenew Festive Poinsettia Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0For my first card, I stamped the Festive Poinsettia Stamp Set multiple times with Clear Embossing Ink on Rouge Cardstock. This, I heat embossed with Pure White Embossing Powder.

Then I colored it with Ocean Waves Watercolor mixed with Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray. What I did was, I diluted the Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray with water and used this as a medium to help color the image. After watercoloring, I used the coordinating die to die cut the image.

Then I adhered the image directly onto the one layer card base. I used the Silver Stone and Industrial Diamond Crisp Dye Inks to stamp the sentiments. In the end, I added a thin strip of Silver Glitter Tape.

Altenew Festive Poinsettia Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0I went all out on my last card. First, I stamped the images in Clear Embossing Ink and heat embossed them with the Antique Gold Embossing Powder. Then I started to watercolor using Emerald and Bamboo Watercolors. For this, I applied water onto the image and dropped in the two colors that I mentioned. I played around with the colors until I was happy with the look. You can watch the video to get a better understanding. Also, I got the color wrong in the video, I keep saying Parrot but its actually Bamboo. For the stem/branch I used Mocha Watercolor.

For this, I applied Emerald Watercolor on the upper half of the panel and then in the middle I applied Bamboo Watercolor. After this, I added dripping watercolor effect so that I would achieve an ombre color.

Altenew Festive Poinsettia Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0When the panel dried, I added black paint splatters and also a few splatters of Antique Gold Metallic Ink Spray. Then I popped up the die-cut images and trimmed off the excess from the edges. I didn't throw away these extra bits, instead, I used a few pieces to add more foliage around the edges.

In the end, I added a few more gold splatters and popped up a few confetti and gems.
